The Information Revolution

The human race has experienced a number of revolutions: agricultural, industrial, and now an information revolution. Each has had a major impact on society. This talk will discuss three aspects of the information revolution and the impact it will have. First, we will discuss the nature of the information revolution and how it will change our lives. Second, we will discuss deep learning, which is a key component of the information revolution. Third, will be the importance of education and what China is doing to be a lead country in the future, and what Canada and the United States should do.
