Tianbai Huang introduces the world's top hacking events for the teachers and students
Tianbai Huang introduced the principles of Alan Turing and Ingmar to the students, and outlined a concept of programming and hacking technology for the students present. Then, he talked about his experience in the hacking competition. The attention of the contestants in the photos deeply attracted the students and inspired the students to participate in the cyber security programming competition. His interpretation of the Silicon Valley culture has aroused the students' thinking and put forward personal views on the prospects and challenges of the new Silicon Valley construction technology, which has brought a lot of inspiration to the students. In the end, he took his own cross-cultural growth and educational experience as an example. He told the students who were facing academic and career-minded problems that they had an interview, and they should try to cultivate their own uniqueness, instead of an operator who knows how to program well.
In the final questioning session, the atmosphere was very warm. The students of the colleges, the computer department and the teachers of the information office asked questions positively. Huang Tianbai answered and extended relevant questions for everyone, and teacher Pei gave many wonderful comments and interpretation. After the meeting, many students still something more to say, and they are positive to show their works to the guest speaker. And we were very looking forward to more such interactive lectures held.
