SHANGHAI - The Yuan aims to create an international community in the artificial intelligence (AI) medical industry and invites contributors from all over the world to join the community. What's the rationale behind this?
Shifeng Wang: The community concept comes from the thinking that rationality does not always find its place in the world of public opinion. "Globalisation" is constantly being challenged, and the Internet is filled with prejudice, hatred, and lies. Rational voices are hard to be heard and to be expressed, which is obvious in the data-driven world of social media. We want to change all that. In the blossoming era of AI, we hope to build an open community where every opinion will be respected.
We also find AI, as much as the previously invented technologies, should be for everyone, not just for specific groups. I hope that The Yuan can convey rational voices on what AI means. AI should bring warmth to both developed and developing countries. We also hope to improve the social awareness of AI.
All of our content comes from contributors located around the world. Thanks to the resource network of Evomics Medical, the parent company of The Yuan, we have been able to invite well-known commentators, policymakers, and even Nobel Prize winners to be our writers. They form an important part of our international community.
The Yuan was founded in 2021. Is this related to the challenges posed by COVID-19 for the medical industry?
Shifeng Wang: The pandemic has given us time to reflect on the past and look to the future. While there are many tragic aspects to the pandemic, we have also witnessed positive changes brought about by the power of technology in thisThe content herein is subject to copyright by The Yuan.
