Next PostZHU Shiqiang: Accelerate Technological Development, Avoid Ethic Risks and Develop AI to Benefit Humans
November 12 was a warm day. The Nanhu Headquarters was seeing Zhejiang Lab's families. The well-organized workplace was transformed into an "amusement park". Grabbing dolls, shooting at the basket, driving race cars… These outdoor games always attracted kids.
Mom, can this robot move?
Can I take this plane?
On the site of scientific research, ZJ Lab's employees and their families enjoyed a robot's piano performance. Their postures were captured to make short videos. They also immersed themselves in "cool technologies".
In the exhibition hall, when the photos of ZJ Lab's employees displayed on the screen that read "Dedication to Science and National Prosperity", everyone stopped to take a picture with their family.
On this special day, the employees' representatives shared their feelings with ZJ Lab's families.
01 JIN Xiongnan, Senior Researcher of the Research Center for Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
Before joining the Lab, I was engaged in postdoctoral work in the United States. I'm very lucky that ZJ Lab gave me a chance to serve my home country.
In the Lab, I usually have a lot of opportunities to listen to the reports of experts in various fields and attend various skills training. More importantly, the Lab has close cooperation with the government, universities and enterprises so that I can improve myself in scientific research projects and serve the country and the people.
In addition to encouraging us to explore the frontiers of science and technology, the Lab also provides us with a living guarantee. When I came on board, my kid was only three years old. My ethnic group is Korean, so my kid is accustomed to our Korean dialect. The Lab's kindergarten teacher learned Korean especially for my kid, which touched me deeply.
02 ZHANG Hong, Deputy Director of Center for Talent Development and Support of the Department of Human Resources
As No. 51 employee of the Lab, I feel honored to contribute my share to the Lab's human resource management. I also see it as a responsibility. With the rapid expansion of the Lab's staff and the increasing complexity of work standards and salary system, working overtime unconsciously has become a common part of our work. I always take my computer with me at night, on weekends or even during my vacation in case of emergency. This has also become a common professional habit of my colleagues in our department. I want to say thank you to my family. Thank you, my husband. You went through your surgery when my department was in a particularly busy time. I had to keep making calls and dealing with work when I was taking care of you in the ward. Thank you for your understanding. I also want to thank my mom and daughter. I've never been home for dinner from Monday to Friday. Thank you for supporting me with your tolerance. Mom, thank you for taking care of my daughter. Today, many colleagues' families have come to the Lab. As a member of the Lab, I would like to say thank you to all of you for your understanding, tolerance and support.
03 ZHANG Liping, ZHANG Ning's mother-in-law, Deputy Director of Research Center for Quantum Sensing
On June 18, I was honored to attend the opening ceremony of "Fangzhong Zhihai" Scientists Residence. Today, I came to the Lab again to participate in the Family Open Day, which made me fully feel the Lab's love and care for all the employees. As a family member, I'm grateful that my daughter-in-law can engage in her favorite scientific research in such a loving environment and realize her dream of life. ZHANG Ning joined ZJ Lab immediately after finishing her Ph.D. She has harvested a lot, which is inseparable from the harmonious working atmosphere created by all her colleagues. Supported by excellent employees, ZJ Lab will have a brighter future.
"The Family Open Day today is the first such event since the opening of Nanhu Headquarters. Nanhu Headquarters, the shared home of ZJ Lab's employees, is equipped with the first-class scientific research facilities, a comfortable living environment, beautiful human and natural scenery, an intelligent campus operation system, complete facility support services and abundant academic, recreational and sports activities. In such an environment, every employee is willing to devote themselves to scientific research and grow healthily. We hope to share the joy of the Lab's growth with every family member and improve the sense of belonging, identity and happiness of ZJ Lab's employees by holding the Family Open Day activity. We hope that all employees of the Lab can uphold "Dedication to Science and National Prosperity" and strive to integrate personal career development into the great cause of scientific and technological innovation, to challenge a new height in the scientific research field". said CHEN Wei, Assistant President of ZJ Lab.
