Speech by the director

With the development of science and technology culture, the term of science and technology culture is the name of concept, carrying knowledge and information. If language is the symbol of recording civilization, then the term of science and technology culture is the symbol of recording the concept of science and technology culture, and is the carrier of scientific and technological cultural knowledge to be inherited. The inheritance of ancient scientific and technological cultural achievements benefits from this. Shanhaijing records the names of mountains, rivers, mausoleums, Taiwan and dozens of minerals; among the 19 articles of Erya, there are 16 explanatory terms, which can be said to be the earliest term dictionary in China; MengXiBiTan named "petroleum" for the first time and has been used till now; a large number of agricultural, soil and water conservancy engineering terms have been created in the complete book of agricultural administration; hundreds of plant and mineral resources have been used in the compendium of Materia Medica Name of rock. The ancient scientific and technological terms, which have been passed down to the present, reflect the sages' deep thinking on the naming of the concept of science and technology, and have made an indelible contribution to the long history of cultural heritage and scientific and technological exchanges.

The research of science and technology culture is a basic work that needs to be persisted for a long time. China's scientific and cultural work has a history of more than 110 years. Today, with the development of science and technology, information technology and Internet technology are constantly advancing, cutting-edge science and technology are constantly making breakthroughs, new scientific fields are constantly emerging, new concepts and new terms are constantly emerging, and scientific and cultural work is still a long way to go.

More than 110 years of scientific and cultural work has not only promoted the development of science and technology culture in China, but also promoted the inheritance of science and culture in China. Science and technology culture carries science and culture. The term of a discipline can outline the appearance, history, current situation and development trend of the discipline. From this point of view, this work also has the meaning of a prosperous age, which can be said to be "meritorious in the contemporary era and beneficial in the thousands of years".

The victory of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China is of epoch-making significance and marks that we have entered a new era. In the new era, innovation has become the first driving force to lead development. In his nineteen major reports, general secretary Xi Jinping emphasized innovation from a strategic perspective. He pointed out that innovation is the strategic support for building a modern economic system, and innovation is at the core of the overall development of the country. In the deep implementation of innovation driven development strategy, science and technology culture work is the basic part of it, because the exchange and dissemination of science and technology culture, the coordination and management of knowledge, and the transmission and sharing of information all need a scientific, standardized and unified scientific and technological culture service platform as support.

We should grasp the strategic positioning of the new era, adapt to the requirements of the new era and new situation, and strengthen the coordinated development with science and technology. On the one hand, we should continue to carry forward the spirit of science and democracy, rigorous and realistic, and ensure the authority and standardization of the results of examination and approval. The examination and approval of scientific and technical terms is a comprehensive work with both normative and research characteristics, as well as coordination and long-term nature. In the long-term practice of examining and approving scientific and technological terms, the National Committee for the approval of scientific and technological terms has accumulated rich experience and formed a complete set of organization and approval process. This process is conducive to establish the authority of the published terms and ensure the standardization of the published terms. However, we still need to innovate the examination and approval mechanism and complete the task of approving and publishing scientific and technological terms with high quality and efficiency. On the other hand, while doing a good job in the approval and publication of scientific and technological terms, we should aim at the forefront of science and technology in the world and serve forward-looking basic research. In his report, General Secretary Xi specially mentioned the major scientific and technological achievements, such as the "China Tianyan", "Wukong" dark matter particle detection satellite, "Mozi" quantum science experiment satellite, tiangong-2 and "Jiaolong" manned submersible. These are new concepts and new terms born with the development of science and technology in China, and are the focus of attention in the standardization of scientific and technological terms. Focusing on the major issues of the development of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, serving forward-looking basic research, new scientific fields and new scientific theoretical system should be the focus of the standardization of scientific and technological terms in the new era.

In the future, we should vigorously improve our service ability and provide a strong foundation for technological and cultural innovation. Since the establishment of South China Science and technology and Culture Research Center, it has made a lot of efforts in innovating the communication mode of science and technology culture and promoting the transformation and application of achievements. Using big data statistics, machine learning, natural language processing and other technologies to develop information service platform and application software based on the actual needs of users for the global Chinese language circle, which has been well received by users. In the future, our center will further strengthen its strategic foresight, actively respond to the trend of convergence and integration of information technology and economic society, explore new models and new means of knowledge service and achievement transformation, improve service ability from the height of supporting innovation and development strategy, and give full play to the value and role of science, technology and culture work.

Mission calls for responsibility, mission leads the future, and the new era gives us new mission. The South China Science and technology culture research center must accurately grasp the strategic orientation of science and technology and cultural work, innovate ideas, and make solid progress, so as to make a difference in the new era.
