Through exhausting Week 2, all the processes of missions start running on the track. During week 3, our team had the first meeting with the project sponsor. The background of project sponsors confirms that I will learn a lot in this project. They come from well-known universities such as Cornell, and most of them have PhD degrees from various fields, such as machine learning, electronic engineering and mechanical engineering.But because of the short duration of the meeting, we may still lack a lot of information related to project requirements. In this part, we will get more information in the follow-up email exchanges and follow-up meetings with Project partner.
This week I shared information about React.js with people in the discussion. React.js belongs to one of the three mainstream web app architectures. Among the three mainstream web apps framework, Angular’s application field is relatively narrow. Vue is relatively lightweight, so it performs well on small websites. React can be extended to the server end and the React Native can be applied on the mobile side. Some people may think that the use of React.js is too cumbersome. This is because When we discuss React, we subconsciously count the new features that are developed step by step in the React community. This may make React development look a bit cumbersome and bloated. But these cumbersomeness provide convenience for the development of large projects.
When I discuss with people that I want to spend my life on artificial intelligence or automation, some of them indeed question the possibility that these businesses may take away the jobs of factory workers. But what I want to say is that the difference between humans and animals is that people use tools. Regardless of how artificial intelligence develops, its role contracts to humans will not be different from that of the calculator. On the contrary, a convenient and powerful tool can better improve people’s lives rather than make them worse.
