Human-Machine-Nature Symbiosis

Prof. Hai Zhuge gave us an excited academic talk about “Human-Machine-Nature Symbiosis”, invited by School of Computer Science and Technology. Prof. Hai Zhuge is affiliated with Aston University, UK. He is now a chair professor in our university. The talk took place at Room 109, Building S2, Xianlin Campus. The dean, Prof. Genlin Ji hosted the talk. Most of our faculties and students were present.

Prof. Dr. Hai Zhuge is the associate editor of “IEEE Intelligent Systems” and “Knowledge and Information Systems”. He has made a distinguished contribution to semantics, knowledge and data modelling. He created the Semantic Link Network model based on semantic link discovery and self-organized semantic linking rules and the Resource Space Model based on the discovery of dimensions and the theory and method for multi-dimensional categorization and management for various resources. The two models are integrated to form a semantic space model to represent the fundamental structure of cyberspace. It uses a uniform theory and method for modeling, organizing, retrieving, and managing both cyber objects and concepts so that various information services can be efficiently provided through understanding. It developed a set of high-performance semantic distributed platforms to provide a self-organized and adaptive architecture for efficiently sharing and managing various cyber objects. He published 22 papers on IEEE Transaction, ACM Transaction, etc. 

Cyberspace is being more and more tightly linked to the physical space and social space to emerge a cyber-physical society, where humans, machines and the natural environment interact with each other and co-evolve.  The emerging cyber-physical society is becoming a new ground of experiencing, understanding and thinking.  Human-machine-nature symbiosis coordinates humans, machines and natural environment to push the harmonious development of cyber-physical society.  Studying the fundamental symbiotic mechanism in the cyber-physical society is a way to understand the society and influence its evolution. This talk extends Licklider’s idea of man-computer symbiosis to the insight of human-machine-nature symbiosis in cyber-physical society and investigates its influence on computing, intelligence and society from multiple dimensions. Human-machine-nature symbiosis provides a complex flow network method for the sustainable development of cyber-physical society.

This rich talk gave us forward thinking. Prof. Zhuge communicated with us effectively and clearly. He answered all the questions from the audiences patiently. Finally, this talk ended in deafening applauses.
