More than 260 experts, scholars and entrepreneurs representing universities, research institutes, software parks, the software industry and public entities took part in the conference, exchanging views on development of software talent and the industrial trend.

With the bourgeoning AI, big data, cloud computing and other new technologies, software companies tend to recruit talent with multiple expertise, and universities are exploring new mode in talent production to answer this call. Chen Bing, Dean of School of Computer Science and Technology at NUAA briefed on the school’s “Vast Sky Lab” program, in which only 60 candidates selected from over 3,000 students can participate as outstanding talent. “A tutor team consisting academicians and ‘excellent young teachers’ will train the candidates with emphases in mathematical basis, logical thinking, information and experiments”, said Chen Bing. The candidates of “Vast Sky Lab” program do not have a specific major only until the latter half in their sophomore year, and aeronautics and astronautics, information automation and materials science are often offered as for their options.

Talent development needs cooperation with multiple parties, the incubation platform, in particular, is critical.
