报告题目：Hyper-World, Big-X and Cyber-I
Abstract. The rapid advances in digital technologies have brought us to a new world, i.e., the Cyber World, which can be regarded as another universe to human beings. The synergy between the cyber world and the physical world has brought profound revolutionary changes due to the burst of various digital explosions, e.g., information explosion, connection explosion, service explosion, and intelligence explosion. These digital explosions are comparable with the other explosions happened in the physical world in human evolutionary process. The question now arises as how humans will evolve facing these explosions in the cyber-physical integrated hyper world? Cyber-Individual, hereon ‘Cyber-I’, is the counterpart of a Real Individual (called Real-I) in the physical world. A Cyber-I is more like a concomitant digital clone of a Real-I. It constantly captures and collects Real-I’s scattered personal pieces of information and behavioral traces left in the hyper world. Moreover, it analyzes and synthesizes the personal nature and features to approximate its Real-I’s essence. The ultimate goal of Cyber-I is to create a cyber counterpart or special digital clone for each individual and provide desired services for all people living in the hyper world.
Jianhua Ma is a Professor at the Faculty of Computer and Information Sciences of Hosei University since 2000. Previously, he had 15 years’ teaching/research experience atNUDT, Xidian University and the University of Aizu (Japan). In recent years, he has been devoted to what he called SmartWorld and Hyper World pervaded with smart physical u-things, characterized with Ubiquitous Intelligence (u-Intelligence, UI) for u-Services with UbiSafe guarantee. Dr. Ma has published over 200 papers in journals and proceedings, and edited over 10 books. He has served JUCI, JMM, JoATC, JPCC and IJUNESST as a Co-Editor-in-Chief.
