I have read many articles about ‘smart’ design. I am tired. Very free of them give me a hint. No need to mention ‘smart’ ships. Or autonomous ships if you want to label them. For me, all these work are about misapplication of technology. No current autonomous ships can solve all navigation scenarios without human intervention by understanding case/effect and adapting to changing situation. I can continue typing more arguments; however, today I find an inspiration work. So let’s me introduce a smart city design project. The work is done by Dr. Ding Wang. Enjoy!

This song can be used to conclude my 2020. It is a Chinese song but I know you can feel the power of the song and the singer.

Lyrics

怎么大风越狠
我心越荡
幻如一丝尘土
随风自由的在狂舞
我要握紧手中坚定
却又飘散的勇气
我会变成巨人
踏着力气 踩着梦
怎么大风越狠
我心越荡
又如一丝消沙
随风轻飘的在狂舞
我要深埋心头上秉持
却又重小的勇气
一直往大风吹的方向走过去
吹啊吹啊 我的骄傲放纵
吹啊吹不毁我纯净花园
任风吹 任它乱
毁不灭是我 尽头的展望
吹啊吹啊 我赤脚不害怕
吹啊吹啊 无所谓 扰乱我
你看我在勇敢地微笑
你看我在勇敢地去挥手啊
是你吗 会给我一扇心房
让我勇敢前行
是你呀 会给我一扇灯窗
让我让我无所畏惧
吹啊吹啊 我的骄傲放纵
吹啊吹不毁我纯净花园
任风吹 任它乱
毁不灭是我 尽头的展望
吹啊吹啊 我赤脚不害怕
吹啊吹啊 无所谓 扰乱我
你看我在勇敢地微笑
你看我在勇敢地去挥手啊
怎么大风越狠 我心越荡
我会变成巨人
踏着力气 踩着梦
