講座摘要:Big Data時代的來臨正衝擊許多領域,本演講將透過具體案例,與大家分享e-時代的工具、發問的模式以及尋找答案的方法,如何提供我們突破的可能性。並以傅恒之子福康安(1754-1796)(連續劇「還珠格格」主角爾康的原型)是否為乾隆帝(愛新覺羅·弘曆,1711-1799)私生子此八卦議題為例,嘗試揭開此一世紀之謎,以突顯e-時代所可能產生的巨大衝擊與挑戰(即使對文科亦然),並與大家分享乾隆皇帝與孝賢皇后(富察氏,1727-1748)間最深切的愛情故事。

Abstract: Many research fields are being impacted in the Big Data era. Through some specific examples, I would share in the lecture on different electronic tools available in the e-Era, models for asking questions, and ways to find the answers, thus providing more opportunities for potential ground-breaking work. I will particularly look at the controversial subject on whether Fu Kang’an (1754-1796), son of Fuheng (1720-1770), could be the illegitimate son of Emperor Qianlong (1711-1799). By solving this century-long puzzle, I would highlight the great impacts and challenges of the e-Era (even to the humanity studies), and share the touching love story between Emperor Qianlong and Empress Xiaoxian (Fucha clan, 1727-1748).
