In the subsequent sessions, the two parties had an in-depth discussion on the intentions of later cooperative research projects and related academic issues, including artificial intelligence, computational law, megadata, blockchain, live games and sports competition, the judicial application of high-tech technology, etc. In addition, the two institutions also exchanged opinions on the design of student exchange programs, such as thesis requirements, dual tutor system, courses expansion, distance learning and other issues. The meeting concluded with a pleasant ending.
