1. Theme and Introduction
Digital Technology Empowers Sharing and Sustainable Development
Hope for shared development and sustainable development is the common aspiration of mankind for a long time. However, in the past, whether it is government capacity, market capacity or technical capacity, it is impossible to achieve inclusive development and sharing, and it is impossible to control the damage to the environment and ecology caused by development. Nowadays, more and more governments, enterprises and people attach importance to shared development and sustainable development. In particular, digital technology, with its incredible data aggregation and computing power, links a large number of people, goods and behaviors, and carries out efficient and intelligent matching, so that the efficient and inclusive resource allocation can be realized simultaneously, and the convenient production, comfortable life and efficient and economical use of resources can be realized simultaneously. This lecture will illustrate the new opportunities that digital technology provides for shared development and sustainable development from multiple perspectives.
