Human civilization has been through unbelievably subversive revolutions in the last two centuries. However, when these changes happened, we were unconscious of being on a brand new journey. When think about the past today, we can clearly discover those significant moments that impact human development profoundly.

151 years ago, Das Kapital , published in Germany, had an ever-lasting impact on the world history.
139 years ago, light bulb illuminated the world.
75 years ago, computers were invented which rapidly accelerated social development.
57 years ago, the first spacecraft soared into the outer space; humans started the age of space exploration.
49 years ago, internet was invented and it brought a newborn power that changed the social structure.
23 years ago, the pioneer of online education, was established, our education entered a new era.
Last year, AlphaGo defeated the best human player —— KeJie by the score of 3:0; artificial intelligence began impacting the world

In the present world, Internet of Things, Big Data, VR, AI and other new techs are flooding into our life. How should we live in this ever-changing world? Are you going to quietly await tomorrow or are you going to ride the tide of future?

How can various new materials and innovative technologies be outstanding in diverse fields and create revolutionary influence?
Will one day the scenes in American Super Hero movies come true? Will human have such future techs as Spiderman and Batman did?
Will continuous-development of artificial intelligence trap people into extensive unemployment? Or will it finally liberate people or instead enslave us?
With the appliance of Internet, Cloud Computing, Big Data and VR enhancing the education progress, how will our future classrooms look like?

—— Will these futuristic questions inspire you to talk to your friends about the future passionately ? Will that be a key reference when you make big decisions?

Through TEDxYouth@ ShengjingRoad 2018 Annual Conference, we will uncover the mysterious veil of the future and explore the unknown.
