谢谢你 利安娜 你刚才的演讲很棒 还有你的评论也很棒
Thank you, Liana, for a very nice speech you gave us, and for your remarks.
I want to deeply thank the Senior Gift Committee,
and everyone who contributed to this wonderful gift to support student activities at MIT.
I also want to recognize the alumni volunteers from the New York Metro area
who provided the Challenge Grant toincrease the impact of gifts from this year’s senior class.
Many of those Challengers are in the audience today.
So, thank you.
Thank you for your leadership and generosity.
Now to the graduates–
Now to the graduates of 2017, congratulations.
[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]
You have to suffer my speech first.
My job today is to deliver a charge to you.
And I will get to that in a minute.
But first, I want to recognize the people who help you charge this far.
To everyone who came here this morning to celebrate our graduates, welcome to MIT.
Now, graduates, for this nextacknowledgment,
I’m going to need your help.
我后面 左肩上方 有架摄像机
Right behind me, over my left shoulder, there is a camera.
一会儿 我要请你们欢呼 并冲着摄像机挥手
In a moment, I’m going to ask you to please cheer and wave to the camera.
So please, cheer and wave when I ask you.
I would like to offer a special greeting to all those who were not able to come to campus,
but who are watching and cheering on today’s graduates online, fromlocations all over the globe.
We are very glad to have you with us, too.
现在 毕业生们 开始吧
Now, graduates, this is the moment.
Please cheer and wave.
Look, I think you can do better than that.
And remember, I’ve still got your diplomas.
So one more time, please cheer and wave.
And to the parents and families of today’s graduates,
a huge congratulations to you, as well.
For you, this day is the joyful result of years of loving support and sacrifice.
Please accept our deep gratitude and admiration.
It is great to have all of you here on Killian Court on this wonderful day for this tremendously important occasion.
In fact, this is such a solemn and serious ceremony,
that I thought you would not mind if we play a little game.
With a big shoutout to graduating senior Lilly Chin–
[SCATTERED CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
–I call this game MIT Jeopardy 2017.
So, you all know how Jeopardy works.
I give the clues, and then you give the answers,
but in the form of questions.
So let me give you a couple of examples just to practice.
If the clue is– here is the first clue–
this revolutionary gene editing system shares its name with a drawer in your refrigerator,
You would say what is?
Whoa, that was great.
What is CRISPR.
The vibrations from this phenomenon were so gigantic
that they could be detected three billion light years away.
You would say what are the campus-wide dance parties.
OK, looks like you’ve got it.
Ready to play.
I expect you to answer the next one loudly.
So listen closely.
Here is your clue.
This school in Cambridge,Massachusetts may, in fact, be the
world’s greatest university.
SPEAKER: (SHOUTING) MIT!
OK, one more.
If the clue is this field of study is known for enrolling all of the smartest students at MIT,
很明显 当然是 停停停
now obviously that would be, of course– oh, stop, stop.
I’m not going there.
Now, if the clue is,
this brave and brilliant man is the current CEO of Apple.
You might be tempted to say who is Tim Cook.
But without question, the best answer would be who is the spiciestmemelord.
I was extremely impressed by Tim’s remarks this morning.
And I expect you were, too.
Over the last few years,
他在言论自由 同性恋权利 隐私权 对气候变化采取行动的必要性等关键问题上采取了大胆公开的立场
he has taken bold public positions on key issues on free speech, gay rights, the right to privacy, the need for action on climate change and more.
In doing so, I believe he’s setting a tremendous example
of what it means to be a citizen and a leader.
And I’m deeply grateful to have Tim with us today.
But when we first invited Tim to speak at commencement,
I tried to talk him into doing something a little different.
我说 蒂姆 太棒了
I said, Tim, it’s perfect.
MIT commencement is on a Friday.
You always release your new phones on a Friday.
So how about releasing the iPhone 8?
Tim did not bite.
But the truth is,
today I am the one presiding over the release of a mind-blowing new product.
This product is a limited edition,
and it’s extremely personalized.
In fact, it comes in more than 2,700 varieties.
And let me tell you, when you line them up together,
they make an impressive and beautiful display.
You do make an impressive and beautiful display.
The operating system for our latest product is amazing.
It has unmatched processing ability and built-in memory.
I know because we have tested it and retested it
over and over and over.
And Tim, I have to point out that our product already has 3D sensing facial recognition.
At MIT, we know that our product can do extraordinary things that we never thought possible before today.
From experience, we know that
people are willing to pay atremendous amount for this product.
And that is really no surprise,
because I’m very proud to tell you
that the product we launched today
has an unlimited capacity to augment reality,
to make a better world.
There are rumors that the iPhone 8 may no longer have a Home button.
But those of you who graduate today certainly do, right here.
And I hope that it will always bring you back right here to your home at MIT.
Now, before you get those diplomas,
let’s demonstrate your capacity for wireless charging.
I have no doubt that the creativity of today’s graduates
会成为新产品 新性能 新发现 新设计 新组织 整个新兴产业的源泉
will be the source of new products, new capabilities, new discoveries, new designs, new organizations and whole new industries.
We should not be surprised if some of those new concepts are deeplydisruptive.
Disrupting old systems andassumptions
can be a very good idea,
but it can also have a great human cost.
And I believe that,
as members of this Institute of Technology,
thinking about this human question is very much our business, too.
It is not something– it is not something–
we can leave for other people to figure out.
And it’s a question where we may need to do more listening than talking for quite a while.
So I want to leave you with this thought.
在麻省理工学院 我们的使命引导我们推动知识进步 教育学生 用知识迎接最大的挑战
At MIT, our mission guides us to advance knowledge, to educate students, and to bring knowledge to bear on the world’s greatchallenges.
As a result, we are driven andmotivated to work on big problems,
and we like to solve them.
in part, by developing newtechnologies.
But the truth is that
one of today’s great challenges is how to help society navigate the unintended impact of technology itself.
So as you work together
to conjure new ideas, to invent new products,
to design new ways to manufacture them, and devise new ways to use them in the world,
I hope you will consider their impact on all of society right from the start.
If you can make this assessment not an afterthought
but a first concern,
you will contribute to solving one of the deepest and most difficult challenges of our time.
During the time you have spent on our campus,
the fabric of our society hasexperienced many serious strains.
So I’m very grateful that, on thiscampus,
the last few years have also seen
a new blossoming of community,
and of deliberate efforts to cultivate connection and compassion
and shared progress with shared joy.
The feeling of connection and unity
has a great deal to do with the example and ideas and leadership of those of you who graduate today.
And that is what gives me theconfidence
to deliver my charge to you.
Now, I’m going to use a word that
feels very comfortable at MIT,
although it has taken on a troubling new meaning elsewhere in the world.
But I know that our graduates will know what I mean.
After you depart for your new destinations,
I want to ask you to hack the world
until you make the world a little more like MIT.
让这个世界更加有胆量 热情 严谨 有创造力 有追求
More daring and more passionate, more rigorous, inventive and ambitious,
更谦逊 恭敬 慷慨 和善
more humble, more respectful, more generous, more kind.
This morning, I see more than 2,700 new graduates,
who are ready for that lifelong problem set.
You made MIT better, and you will make a better world.
You came to MIT with exceptional qualities of your own,
and now you leave us equipped with a rare set of skills,
and steeped in this community’s deepest values–
追求卓越 正直 精英 大胆 谦逊
a commitment to excellence, integrity, meritocracy, boldness, humility,
an open spirit of collaboration,
a strong desire to make a positive impact,
and a sense of responsibility to make the world a better place.
I hope you take your MIT values with you,
and I hope you always take time to listen to the world,
因为若要成为优秀的人 杰出的麻省理工“产品” 这是秘诀
because that is the secret of making yourselves the finest human beings and the most magnificent MIT product
that you can be,
because I also see a planet that urgently needs everything you have to offer.
现在 走出这里 走进世界 发现自己的使命
So now, go out there, join the world, find your calling,
解决难题 创造未来 高歌猛进
solve the unsolvable, invent the future, take the high road,
and you will continue to make your family,
including your MIT family, proud.
On this wonderful day, I’m proud of all of you.
To every one of the members of the graduating class of 2017,
please accept my best wishes for a happy and successful life and career.
