The BXAI Summer Program 2024 will be held in Shanghai in partnership with Shanghai Jiao Tong University from August 3 to August 18. Approximately 70 Bai Xian Scholars from the 2023 cohort will gather for an immersive and enriching two weeks together as they explore the theme “Digital Transformation in Asia,” examining how digital technologies have driven social change in Asia as they become increasingly integrated into various aspects of society such as business, government, law, finance, and everyday life.

The program will kick off with team building activities and a fun excursion designed to facilitate the forming of friendships and boost confidence and communication. A series of soft skills training sessions, seminars, and an art and culture workshop will follow, as well as two academic sessions examining generative AI and smart cities in Asia.

Towards the end of the Summer Program, scholars will enjoy an opportunity to connect with the BX community at a “Coffee & Chat” session with BX people and an alumni evening with former scholars from previous cohorts. They will then conclude their learning journey by taking part in final group presentations, a leadership-themed keynote lecture, and a closing ceremony and gala dinner, where they will celebrate the completion of the ninth BXAI Summer Program alongside their fellow scholars, alumni, and BX community members.
