Jinhua Scholar at 2019 WAIC
On August 29, approved by the State Council and co-organized by the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Science and Technology, and the Shanghai Government, the World Artificial Intelligence Conference 2019 (WAIC) was held in Shanghai with the theme of “intelligent connectivity, infinite possibilities.” Shao Yushi, a woman from Jinhua, was invited to be the first scholar to deliver a speech at the Youth Rule of Law Forum at the WAIC.
Shao is the chairman of the Stanford Graduate Student Union. Born and raised in Jinhua, she studied at Jinhua Foreign Language School, Jinhua No. 1 High School, and then Amstel College and Stanford University. During the summer, she and several students went to Beijing to visit startups and venture capital institutions, where they discovered that many Chinese entrepreneurs come back from the United States to start a business in China. Among them, she especially admired Yang Linfeng, founder of Onion Math. “I feel that the exploration of science and technology in the social and commercial fields in China is really encouraging,” said Shao.
