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.

SPEAKERS

  • Mathematician, Physicist Science Philosopher Laureate of 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics
    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.

  • Astrophysicist Scientific Member of the Max Planck Society Member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences Laureate of 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics
    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.

  • Brain-Computer Interface Scientist Professor at Stanford University Co-director of its Neural Prosthetics Translational Laboratory (NPTL)
    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.

    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.

    “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, Tencent WE Summit was premiered in 2013. With this non-commercial effort, Tencent hopes to connect the public to the most remarkable science findings and the latest science thinking in order to inspire creation and innovation as well as explore possibilities to shape our future.
Over the past 9 years, more than 80 scientists had graced Tencent WE Summit by giving speeches around topics of cosmology, theoretical physics, life science, space exploration and internet technology, etc. Some of them include Stephen Hawking, Barry Barish, Kip Thorne, Steven Weinberg, Carl June, Alan Stern, Pan Jianwei and Chi-Chih Yao.

TENCENT ME SUMMIT

Tencent Medical Enlightment Summit First held in 2019, Tencent Medical Enlightment Summit is an annual event co-hosted by Tencent Medipedia (Baike.qq.com), Tencent’s medical and healthcare knowledge platform, and Frontiers in Medicine, an initiative of New England Journal of Medicine magazine. The event will address medical and health topics which are of high concern in China and by engaging with the top brains of the international medical community, to convey professional medical knowledge and as well as the latest medical advances to the public.
Themed “The War Against Disease”, the event this year will welcome seven medical experts, including Wang Chen, Huo Yong, Qiao Youlin, Jia Weiping, Qi Hai, Wei Wensheng and Zhou Xingtao, who will talk about COVID-19 control, neuroimmunology, gene editing, cancer, cardiovascular, ophthalmology and diabetes etc., accessing the public to authoritative medial knowledge and latest medical progresses.
