In the past century, high emissions of carbon dioxide, water vapor, nitrous oxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases have led to the rapid increase in Earth’s temperature. In addition to actively reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the solution to global warming is also proven effective by using advanced equipment to capture carbon dioxide. The collected carbon dioxide can be further used in chemical production, sustainable fuel production, agriculture, and medicine to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, slow climate warming, and ultimately achieve the goal of sustainable development.

Artificial Intelligence [AI] drives the rapid development of modern medical technologies. When disaster strikes, it can be difficult for ambulance crews and rescuers to enter dangerous areas and accurately locate the wounded in time. In many cases, secondary injuries are unavoidable. AI has great potential in the medical field – smart diagnostic systems and intelligent operating robots are helpful to improve traditional medical procedures and significantly increase medical efficiency. Let us work together to solve the medical problem using future technologies. The world is counting on you to create a healthier future with your brains and hands.
