简介: 2019年7月18日下午,阿里云智能团队接待了由美国非盈利机构:全美浙江总商会教育专委会和密西根青少年励能基金会组织的“2019年国际青少年科技论坛中国行”代表团,该代表团成员由来自美国不同学校的19位优秀高中生组成。

2019年7月18日下午,阿里云智能团队接待了由美国非盈利机构:全美浙江总商会教育专委会和密西根青少年励能基金会组织的“2019年国际青少年科技论坛中国行”代表团,该代表团成员由来自美国不同学校的19位优秀高中生组成。他们曾在机器人、艺术和领导力等领域的多个大赛中获奖,随后历经了多轮的培训与选拔。

对于人才培养和青少年的关注是阿里一直坚守的使命。马老师认为,社会责任与世界担当是阿里探索人类科技前沿的根本动力,作为一家致力于成为创造未来的公司,阿里要成为国家、社会乃至于世界创新的发动机。

阿里云基础产品技术战略部技术运营钱梅芳带队迎接并组织与安排了同学们接下来的5小时学习访问活动,让同学们近距离、全方面感受阿里云的使命、文化和技术。

近距离感受阿里云

民以食为天,第一站,同学们来到了阿里食堂,体验中式美食。

午餐后,阿里云智能技术战略总监陈绪博士带领同学们参观了园区,介绍了阿里云的发展史与大事记。在这里,同学们不仅感受了阿里云最高技术荣誉“飞天奖”的意义,同时也学习了阿里云背后的公益使命——科技助力贫困群体改善生活。

阿里云中文介绍展示前,美国同学们自发停下脚步,并用中文朗读:“阿里云创立于2009年,是全球领先的云计算及人工智能公司……”

陈绪博士还专门为同学们介绍了“云铃”,它时刻提醒阿里云的每一位成员——在关键时刻警醒自己的责任,坚守安全稳定生命线的决心和担当,永远牢记客户第一的至上信念。

随后,阿里云虚拟化技术专家李敏带领同学们参观了“云计算博物馆”。

参观完毕后,同学们在现场积极地分享了自己的感受,并表示作为15天交流访问中最期待的一站,阿里云不虚此行!

同学Jessica Zhang说:“今天的参观让我感触很深。不是所有的科技公司都关注贫弱群体,而阿里云勇于承担社会责任,运用自己的技术,帮助贫弱群体打开市场、提供更多的机会。这也激励我们,开阔视野,去探索科技改善人类生活道路上的无限可能!”

Angela Liu同学觉得让她感触最深的是阿里云整个工作环境的设计,充满创新,其中印象最深的就是通往云计算博物馆的台阶,每一步都代表着企业前进的里程碑,整个氛围让大家渴望成为这个团队中的一员,共同为让世界变得更美好而努力!看到“把所有想象,变成脚印。未来是什么?走出去定义”的时候,同学们纷纷拿出纸笔记录,甚至有同学表示,阿里巴巴宝贵的传承和文化,让人不想错过每一段。

下午,在同学们迈进教室的那一刻,简单及热情的布置之外,课桌上静静躺着的“阿里土话”更让大家对这个组织有了更形象的理解。

在陈绪博士与代表团中Chanel同学的简短对话中,Chanel兴奋地分享了她两年前的一段经历——在美国底特律举办的阿里Gateway17活动上,她现场学习了阿里巴巴公益基金会会长马云分享的阿里巴巴成长史,并与马会长交谈及合影。

云计算文化大课堂

在后续的行程中,陈绪博士生动地讲解了阿里云的发展历史、文化传承、技术突破、商业创新等内容;阿里云 ECS首席架构师蔡俊杰介绍了阿里云弹性计算服务的核心价值、应用领域、购买选择以及重要技术;阿里云高性能计算总监何万青博士介绍了阿里云的云计算创新,从云计算的核心技术到机器学习、从人工智能在阿里巴巴的各种应用到超级计算集群容量,让大家全面了解了阿里云进步的一大动力——源自阿里巴巴对实时计算及高性价比的强烈追求。

同学们兴致高昂、脑洞大开,问题也是极其开阔:阿里巴巴集团旗下有12家公司,团队之间怎样保持有效的协作和管理?5G的发展是否会对人类健康造成危害?阿里云的撞车模拟数据能够达到怎样的精确度?阿里巴巴处于新科技时代创新的核心地位,阿里云的发展对整个科技世界改革起到怎样的推进作用?青少年应该怎样准备自己来迎接未来的挑战?陈绪总监和何万青博士给同学们一一作了解答。

美好的时光总是短暂的,转眼间活动接近尾声。临别前,阿里云给每位同学赠送了一件印有 “Alibaba Cloud”商标的T恤,同学们迫不及待地当场换上,合影留念。

阿里云全球的技术影响力越来越大,尤其是近几年发展更是迅猛:根据IDC全球数据中心最新发布的咨询报告,阿里云在亚太地区雄踞第一,市场份额达到了19.6%,超过位居第二的AWS和微软Azure市场份额之和;在全球范围内排名第三,并且有望超过微软Azure晋升为全球第二。阿里云不仅仅是技术的先锋,也是一家注重企业社会责任感,重视技术文化传承的公司。

帮助青少年更好地成长,是阿里云义不容辞的责任。阿里云基础产品技术战略部组织的这次文化之旅,让我们看到了美国学生的脸上洋溢着幸福感和满足感。那一刻,仿佛他们每一位也变成了不断挑战科技创新、勇于承担社会责任的“阿里人”。

这些留学生们,晚上写下了观后感,来看几个精彩的片段:

Angela Li

The tour began with an introduction on the history ofAliyun as well as a brief explanation of Aliyun Milestone Steps and the Cloud Computing Museum. Here they learned about projects  Alicloud undertook and how they served to promote sustainable development and alleviate rural poverty in the 21st century.

Next the students participated in a 2 hour seminar hosted by three well respected long time Aliyun experts. After the presentation, the students can understand the detailed on structure of the Aliyun and major implications of ECS as well as the impacts of AI and machine learning on Aliyun

After the Seminar the students engaged with the staff for an hour long Q and A session. The questions brought up within this session ranged from employee culture to online traffic management and  to security and data breaches. Not only were the students able to gain valuable and insightful information about the world of cloud computing but they were also able to open their eyes to realize the importance of accepting change and innovation.

Ann Zhang:

I've always heard about company outreach in communities but never have I realized the full extent of the meaning. The trip to Alibaba caused me to redefine its definition as not just a program to help other people and to increase a company's presence, but as an educational experiences that changes lives. Through the trip to Alibaba, a whole world of exploration was opened up to me. We were introduced to the intricacies behind the monotonous humdrum of everyday life. Big data and AI are always on the move, dictating the next ad to appear on our late night hours of Youtube surfing or our next shopping spree on online stores such as Taobao. Technology is being integrated in our lives in more ways than I thought possible and in the trip to Alibaba I realized just how much I didn't know. More importantly though, through the visit I learned even the most common of objects have their minute details. With every item comes a story of its creation. Just like how ads that appear during online browsing are calculated appearances based on meticulously programmed lines of code, the world is more complicated than it seems. To fully understand anything, we have to truly delve deep and always keep our mind open. What we know is never all that there is to know on anything. With a new mindset after the trip from Alibaba, I believe that the company is not just a place to cultivate the next biggest innovations in technology, but also a place that cultivates the mind and character of its workers and aims to better the community through sharing its resources and wisdom.

Working is like a hamster running in a wheel. There is always a hamster running faster, and always one running slower. When you run fast enough to break the cage, theres another cage beyond that with another wheel.

This story was relayed to us during the Q&A session at Alibaba. While it may appear to have a pessimistic sentiment, it can and should be interpreted in a much more different way. Theres no point in attempting to climb some sort of ladder to reach the top, because there is no top to reach. Alibabas philosophy is to attack problems that appear impossible, and Alibaba Cloud is perhaps the most indicative of that. Additionally, the fact that Alibaba ensures that all of its bosses are capable of doing what they delegate others to do is also an admirable decision. Indeed, bosses arent even called bosses; theyre called team leads, to ensure that there is no concept of hierarchy and corruption. In essence, Alibaba has created a company that thrives not upon old, traditional organization and theory, but has stirred up the business universe with not only multiple innovative sub-companies but also multiple different organizational and technological structures.
