With the theme of “Toward a Shared Digital Future in a Connected World — Building a Community with a Shared Future in Cyberspace”, this year's summit is empowered by artificial intelligence, cutting-edge technologies, and big data.
The summit is not only a chance to present the latest achievements in the internet industry but also a chance to show the comprehensive application of modern high-tech.
Many cutting-edge technology applications, such as AI, the metaverse, augmented reality and virtual reality, have been employed to provide visitors with an interactive experience in conference venues, exhibition areas, scenic spots, and townships during the summit.

South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol on Monday criticized the police response to the deadly Halloween crush in Seoul, pledging to hold accountability to any officials found responsible for sloppy responses and to reform police and safety management systems.
Yoon made the remarks during a meeting held to review crowd control and other safety regulations in the wake of the tragedy that killed 156 people on October 29.
\"We need major innovations in the way police prepare against risks and prevent accidents in order to protect the people's safety,\" he said. \"I will make sure the truth is thoroughly determined regarding this tragedy and disclose the process to the public in a transparent manner that leaves not a trace of doubt.\"
Yoon also offered a formal apology during the meeting, saying he is sorry and apologetic to the bereaved families who are suffering an unspeakable tragedy, and to the people who share the pain and sorrow. \"I do not dare to compare myself to the parents who lost their sons and daughters, but as the president who ought to protect the people's lives and safety, I am heartbroken.\"
Six individuals were booked for an investigation on charges of professional negligence resulting in the deaths in the Itaewon crowd crush, including the now-suspended police chief for the district of Yongsan, the fire chief and district head, officials said Monday. 据有关人士7日透露，有6人因被指控在梨泰院事件中犯有公务过失致死伤罪被立案调查，包括首尔龙山区警察厅厅长、消防署署长、区厅长等人。
