Artificial Intelligence is regaining its wide popularity in recent years. On one hand, the importance of Artificial Intelligence is due to the availability of big data which is the result of the formation of large systems that are interconnected by various networks. On the other hand, robots and machines of tomorrow are urgently in need of gaining self-intelligence so as to be able to efficiently perform difficult tasks, and even to free people from doing dangerous jobs. With the rise of Artificial Intelligence in the public minds or eyes, people are putting a very high level of interests on knowing the scientific solutions behind the understanding and capabilities of self-skills and self-intelligence. In this keynote speech, I will go through the following key points: what is today’s definition of Artificial Intelligence? what is today’s blueprint of Artificial Intelligence? what is the history of Artificial Intelligence? what is the current state of art in terms of cognitive capabilities which enable machines to see? ? what is the current state of art in terms of cognitive capabilities which enable machines to hear? what are possible applications which are, or will be, enabled by Artificial Intelligence?, etc. – Xie Ming
