AI, Entrepreneurship, and Happiness
Could We Innovate Happiness?
As we are entering a new era of artificial intelligence and technology-driven experience, we still want to be happy. There are countless ideas about what happiness is. We no longer live in the world without technology. In the meantime, how we use technology has significantly impacted our emotional wellbeing. How does AI change how we interact and feel with one another? Can we produce happiness through technology innovation and rethink about entrepreneurship strategies?
Furthermore, as a member of National Tsing Hua University, rather than being the users of technology, we are also the creators, the inventors, and the artists behind tomorrow’s innovation. This course will integrate scientific research with practical case studies to cover approaches that lead to entrepreneurship and technology innovation crossing multiple disciplines.
Can happiness be innovated? Students will engage with some of the most provocative and practical research projects from the academic scientific and artistic studies to real-world product innovations. Throughout the course, stages of innovation process and interdisciplinary approaches will be discussed. This course will also cover the process of identifying and quantifying interdisciplinary opportunities, then conceptualizing, planning, and starting a new enterprise. Balancing theoretical and practitioner learning, this course will explore building blocks of interdisciplinary innovation, entrepreneurial strategy, and will discover how cutting-edge research can be applied to your own life.
Let’s invent happiness.
