From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of any particular interest. But for us, it's different. Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us.

——《Pale Blue Dot》Carl Sagan

SPEAKERS

  • Quantum physicist and a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences
    Pan is the chief scientist of "Mozi", also known as the "father of quantum". His quantum research was once placed on the cover of Nature. This year, collaborated with his colleges, he successfully used "Mozi" quantum science experimental satellite to achieve the first thousand kilometer quantum key distribution based on entanglement. This breakthrough improves the space distance of the ground relay free quantum secure communication by an order of magnitude, and achieves an important breakthrough in the application of quantum communication to reality.

  • Neuroscientist and Professor of Neuroscience at Duke University
    Nicolelis is a professor of Neurosciences at Duke University, and he is also the chief designer of the robotic exoskeleton in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. He is known for his pioneering work in brain-machine interface technology. Nicolelis's study of using EEG to operate machines has great significance in medical field which can help paralyzed patients who have lost the ability to move to recover and walk again. He has also discovered a series of important physiological principles of the brain circuits in mammals that can be used as potential new therapies for patients with severe paraplegia, Parkinson's disease and epilepsy.

  • Theoretical Physicist and a major founder of the Elementary Particle Standard Model
    If we were to name the greatest physicists of our time, he must be on the list. Stephen Hawking wrote his great book A Brief History of Time with inspirations from him. He, together with Sheldon Lee Glashow and Abdus Salam, won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1979 for their contributions to the theory of the unified weak and electromagnetic interactions between elementary particles. He was the most recognized contributor to inflation theory which explores the early moments of the universe. From things as micro as particles to those as macro as the universe, he spent his entire scientific life dealing with some of the most complicated issues in physics.

  • Stem Cell Biologist, Professor of Stem Cell Therapy at The University of Tokyo and Professor of Genetics at Stanford University
    Hiromitsu Nakauchi is a Professor of Genetics at Tokyo University and Stanford University, and his research focus is in stem cell. He has worked with a team at Tokyo University to find a way to artificially amplify hematopoietic stem cells and try to implant human pluripotent stem cells into animal embryo, and then to produce tissues and organs in substitute animals. The ultimate goal of the study is to use "blastocyst complementation" technology to develop human organs in animals that can be used for transplantation.

  • Astrophysicist and Professor of Physics at McGill University
    Victoria Kaspi, an astrophysicist from McGill University, is the youngest woman in history to win the Gerhard Herzberg Gold Medal for her research on neutron stars. As a significant member of in the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment radio telescope team, she and her team members used innovative technology to track rapid radio bursts and captured hundreds of rapid radio bursts, which is expected to solve the mystery of signal sources.

    Bao is a professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University, and she is also the first Asian American Department Chair. She is devoted to the research of artificial skin, and has created the first electronic paper driven by organic transistors. She has also led the development of sensitive artificial skin, which led a great progress in robotics, human skin transplantation and the improvement of perception of artificial limbs. Bao was selected as Nature’s Ten people who mattered in 2015 as a “Master of Materials” for her innovation and breakthrough in artificial electronic skin.

  • Astronomer and Professor of Astronomy
    at Cardiff University
    “Signs of Life Found on Venus”, this headline news this September received wide attention. A team led by Professor Jane Greaves first detected phosphine in the atmosphere of Venus. This discovery indicates that there would be unknown photochemical or geochemical process on the planet. And this is even deemed as potential signs of life. We humans have never stopped our exploration of life beyond earth. And will this finding bring us a new surprise?

ABOUT

TENCENT WE SUMMIT

An annual global science event hosted by Tencent, the Tencent WE Summit was established in 2013. Every year, we are joined by leading lights from international science community to share their latest works and ideas. In 2017, Tencent and Springer Nature, a world’s leading publisher of most influential science journals, embarked on a strategic partnership to co-organize the Conference.
Over the past 7 years, more than 70 scientists and people from the circle of science had graced our events as guest speakers, such as cosmologist Stephen Hawking, gravitational wave discoverer Barry Barish, Nobel Prize laureate Kip Thorne, CAR T-cell therapy pioneer Carl June, Turing Award winner Andrew Chi-Chih Yao and Tencent Founder Pony Ma, to name a few. And topics range from cosmology to theoretical physics, life science, space exploration and Internet technology et cetera.

TENCENT SCIENCE WEEK

The first Tencent Science Week was launched in 2019. As a response to government’s call for “Science and Technology Innovation” and an effort to execute its corporate social responsibility and mission of Tech for Good, Tencent, together with Tencent Foundation, organize a series of science events every November. The coming Tencent Science Week 2020 will feature four mega events, including Tencent WE Summit, Tencent ME Summit, awarding ceremony of Xplorer Prize and X-Talk. Taking advantage of Tencent’s power of platform and technology, Tencent Science Week will work with scientists, medical experts, science popularizers and cross-sector scholars to promote knowledge and spirit of science and motivate the public to approach science, helping build a favorable atmosphere of science. With Tencent Science Week, we hope to highlight scientists with a close-up shot, making science a new trend and supporting the development of basic science and cutting-edge technologies.
