Entering the rapidly developed smart era, how should students who have just entered the university plan their lives? Yesterday, Hunan University of Technology and Business held the opening ceremony for 2019 grade freshmen. Chen Xiaohong, academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering and President of Hunan University of Technology and Business, opened the first lesson on the spot. She encouraged all young students to embrace, reflect on and transcend the smart era, awaken their ideality, stimulate their creativity, improve their self-control, and study for the purpose of building China into the world's first technological and economic power.


"Actively embracing the smart era" is Chen Xiaohong's first point of view. In her opinion, at present, knowledge technology is speeding up the iteration. Twenty or thirty years ago, the knowledge that people accepted may be used for a lifetime, but now it is far from the case, the person who is slack in learning will fall behind. "In the face of new changes and new era, we cannot bury our heads in the sand like ostriches, but we must use intelligent technology scientifically to better understand the future and change our lives."

She also reminded everyone to "seriously reflect on the smart era". Because in this era, the temptations and traps faced by human beings are not decreasing, but multiplying. Many young people spend a lot of time and energy on mobile phones and computers generously, and become "phone freaks" and "fans of video games". "It can be seen that people's character, needs, hobbies and consumption ability have been mastered and calculated invisibly, and even the world we see may have been carefully designed. If we are immersed in it, how much is left of our undivided freedom of thought? "

How to transcend the smart era unremittingly? As an expert in related fields, Chen Xiaohong believes that at present, intelligent technology can summarize laws from numerous professional data, showing great power in understanding and solving professional problems, but it is still difficult to deal with problems in a cross domain and comprehensive way. "Human beings can build up a comprehensive concept and system of the whole world and life based on the knowledge, which is the unique 'wisdom' of human beings; furthermore, creativity is a unique ability of human beings to create human civilization. In any era, human beings will continue to surpass due to their creativity, which is the 'ability' of human beings. Moreover, the needs of emotional care, social interaction and spiritual communication will always exist and will be more valued in the process of building a community of common future, which is the 'core' of human beings." Chen Xiaohong said that what we need to do in the smart era is to stand on a higher mountain than intelligent technology, to do things that are difficult for intelligent technology to do, and even to guide the direction of intelligent technology. After all, there is no mountain higher than people in the world!

University is the place where students can grow up. What core competence should they possess? Chen Xiaohong also gave three suggestions. First of all, we need to strive to empower growth with original intention and awaken our ideality. She spoke bluntly that "machines can have no ideal, but people have to. The most terrible thing for a person is to forget the original dream and gradually lose the goal of life. The biggest mistake in youth is not to combine the ideal with the fate of the country, but to sell ourselves as a commodity." She further said that a life without goals can only be a vagrant life, and utilitarian individualism may make you a kite with broken wires. Therefore, we should set up lofty ideals first and make unremitting efforts during the university life. "Please remember that we must first act as human beings and then do things, and should not be refined and indifferent egoists. We should strive to carry forward the patriotic striving spirit of the 'Two Bombs and One Satellite'".

Secondly, she hopes that students can empower their growth through hard work and good thinking and stimulate their creativity. "Learning is necessary in any era, while diligent learning and good thinking will be more important than ever before in the smart era." Chen Xiaohong encouraged everyone to adapt to the characteristics and laws of university learning and life as soon as possible, aim at new learning directions, master new learning methods, desire, affection and focus on learning, and regard truth as soul and life. She thinks that we must always be with strong curiosity in learning, take the initiative to carry out research-based learning and problem-based learning, combine theoretical and practical problems, fully integrate multi-disciplinary knowledge, and form the interdisciplinary innovation ability. "Based on the combination of knowledge and thought, we can be learned and innovative talents!"

She also stressed that everyone should empower growth with rational self-discipline and improve self-control. "People cannot think and live like machines, but cannot act by instinct like beasts." She asked all students must warn themselves that they would be playboys without ambitions when they realize that they are becoming "phone freaks"; we must warn ourselves that youth is perishable and life is short when we are addicted to TV dramas and computer games; we must always know the right direction and keep the spirit of independence when we browse all kinds of celebrity gossip and see the temptation of consumption and pleasure!

"University is not for fun, and we cannot be muddling along!" As the "elder sister" loved by students of Hunan University of Technology and Business, she hoped that: "we should be out of the comfort zone, and not be a giant baby, parasite or spineless person. In the era of great change and development, we should persevere in a self-revolution of growth, and work hard in the field of youth, so that the youth can bloom to the fullest!"
