Title: Just Six Variables Personal View of Computer Education in China

Just Six Variables - Personal View of Computer
Education in China
  • CHEN Daoxu (???)
  • Dept. CST, Nanjing University
  • May 23, Beijing

Thinking in a Simple Way
  • A impossible task for me
  • Give a briefing on Education and Research of
    Computer Science in China as a whole
  • A simple approach to think about it (limited in
  • Learn from Sir Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal at

Just Six Numbers
Rees told us Our whole Universe is governed by
just six numbers, set at the time of the Big
Bang. Alter any one of them at your peril, for
stars, planets and humans would then not exist.
Our Small Cosmos
  • We look at the community of computer education in
    Chinese universities as a small cosmos.
  • What are the critical factors deciding its status
    and influencing its future development?
  • (However, it is only a analogy in some sense, NOT
    an attemp to use results of physics in OUR field.)

Two Variables on Basic Force -1
  • The ratio of the strength of the force to putting
    things together to that of pulling them away - N
  • In phisical universe, being lucky, the value is
    extremely large (1036)
  • In our cosmos
  • Putting together core of THE discipline
  • Pulling away rapidly expanded applications

Two Variables on Basic Force - 2
  • Force resisting the expansion of the cosmos - ?
  • In physical universe(called antigravity), being
    lucky, the value is small and stable (0.7,
  • In our cosmos
  • Rapid expansion in past few years
  • Decreasing popularity, due to real and virtual

More than 700 universities and colleges have
bechelor program in this field(in a narrow sense)
with total enrollments of more than 400,000 and
more than 50 with a history less than 10 years.
Two Variables on Texture - 1
National Key Discipline Units Architecture
2 Software and Theory 5 Application Technology 8
  • Ratio of energy emitting during mass transmuting
    - ?
  • In phisical universe, being lucky, the value is
    small (0.007)
  • In our cosmos
  • Ratio of high-level researches results on
    educational activities
  • Hierarchical research structure in universities
    national lab national key lab national key

National lab for information science and
technology (under construction at Tsinghua Univ.)
National key labs CAD(Zhejiang Univ. Novel
Software techniques(Nanjing Univ.) Software
Engineering(Wuhan Univ.) SDE(BUAA) AV
Information Processing(Beijing Univ.)
Intelligent Technology and Systems(Tsinghua
Univ.) etc.
Two Variables on Texture - 2
  • Relative importance of smooth development and
    turmoil - ?
  • In phisical universe, a unknown value wanting
    grasp of the relative importance of gravity and
    expansion energy
  • In our cosmos
  • Exploring research for publication
  • Working for national goals

One Variable on Identity
  • How does one look different from others G
  • In phisical universe, a ratio not easy to be
    explained, with a value of 10-5
  • In our cosmos
  • Similar goal, at least in simple view (different
    in level, not in contents)
  • Whats our dark mass?

The Last Variable
  • Dimension the character we feel directly about
    our universe - D
  • In phisical universe, no explanation needed, the
    value is 3
  • In our cosmos
  • Science, Engineering and Service
  • Computer science, in broad or narrow sense? The
    problem is more important for educators than for

"To be, or not to be?"
Only as one of the possibilitie The answer
depends on the values we set for the six
