No matter you are engaged in any course of study and research, if you are a very sharp-minded person, one of the great advantages of studying in the UK is that there are many inclusive academic and industry exchange environments and information sharing platforms for us to use, to strengthen our international vision, research level and academic or industry knowledge are of great help to our own study and research and even future employment.
First of all, there are a series of frequent conferences, seminars and even many informal “brainstorms” within the university, or between universities, across academic and industrial fields, where you can choose your fields of interest independently. From this big platform you can learn the industry’s leading knowledge, technology, business model and leading scenario applications, exchange agendas and ideas with others, and discover potential partners for academic exploration and technology development together. My feeling is that, especially in the modern society with ever-changing technology applications, many previously separated fields continue to be deeply integrated and interacted. This poses new challenges to our knowledge and cognitive structure. For example, I’m now engaging in tourism planning and sustainable development, which itself is a highly divergent and complex subject, accompanied by the development and application of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing, and block Chains, etc., require our researchers to have more divergent thinking and a broader knowledge system to study the application of these new technologies and their impacts on human society and life.
At the end of the first semester last year, under the recommendation of the senior and other colleagues in the research office, I began to expand my interest to some academic and industry exchange activities outside of our University of Surrey. Many activities are free to participate in, organized by universities, research institutions, industry associations, consulting, think tanks, and even the school’s student union and student associations. You can find activity links on many common social media such as Facebook. In addition to this, the University of Surrey will also regularly share relevant event information for us.
In this blog, I will take you to take a look at the blockchain application and sustainable development industry trend sharing meeting hosted by the School Blockchain Association hosted by the LSE of the London School of Economics and Political Science that I participated in in February this year.
The London School of Economics and Political Science LSE is a world-renowned institution of higher learning and one of the G5 prestigious universities in the UK. It enjoys a high status in the fields of social sciences, economics and finance, international politics, and law. It has a large number of high-quality academic output throughout the year. A large number of top talents have been contributed in various fields around the world. LSE is located in the center of the City of London, very close to Trafalgar Square and the River Thames. The geographical position is extremely advantageous. Of course, studying here, living and transportation costs are of course very high. Unlike other university campuses, LSE University has quite a small area, and its teaching buildings are scattered in the business district of the city center, with a very bustling atmosphere.
讲座的嘉宾来自英国区块链技术应用学会，给我们分享了一些区块链技术原理，目前的一些应用场景尝试与探索，以及对于未来人类社会诸如金融、政治与生产生活活动的影响。其中对于很多前瞻性的尝试，比如Dapps, DeFi, Daico等项目，以及他们的技术支撑结构DAO，ARAGON，还有IOTA经济系统，包括一些奖励机制如Deposy体系等，嘉宾进行了比较深入与细致的介绍。
The guest of the seminar came from the British Block-chain Technology Application Society. They shared some block-chain technology principles, some current application scenarios and new explorations, and the impact on future human society such as finance, politics, production and life activities. Among them, for many forward-looking attempts, such as Dapps, DeFi, Daico and other projects, as well as their technical support structures DAO, ARAGON, and the IOTA economic system, including some reward mechanisms such as the Deposy system, the guests conducted more in-depth and detailed Introduction.
