CUHK-Shenzhen High-Tech Achievements Exhibited at the 22nd China Hi-Tech Fair
On November 11, the 22nd China High-Tech Fair (CHTF) opened at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center. Under the theme "Transforming the Future with Technology and Driving Development with Innovation", CHTF 2020 covers an exhibition area of over 120,000 square meters, and attracts the participation of three research teams from The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen, including Shenzhen Research Institute of Big Data (SRIBD), Shenzhen Key Laboratory of IoT Intelligent System and Wireless Network Technology, and Institute of Advanced Polymer Materials.
Dagoo, an exhibit designed and created by Shenzhen Research Institute of Big Data, is an online data visualization and analysis platform that provides a full set of solutions for data acquisition, cleaning, analysis and visualization. With over 100 visual analysis tools, Dagoo seeks to lower the threshold for data analysis, help non-expert users get started quickly, and enable professionals to complete lightweight work quickly, saving time and improving efficiency.
Shenzhen Research Institute of Big Data (SRIBD) was established by the Shenzhen Municipal Party Committee and Shenzhen Municipal Government and was led by its founding director Prof. Tom Luo, Vice-president of CUHK-Shenzhen and a Fellow of The Academy of Science of the Royal Society of Canada. The institute aims to lead and coordinate the research and development of big-data related innovation in Shenzhen.
The Smart Lamppost project, initiated by Shenzhen Key Laboratory of IoT Intelligent Systems and Wireless Network Technology Laboratory (IoT Lab) and led by SSE Professor Yang Shenghao, is a future-ready programme focused on applications of storage, communication and computing models.
One of its exhibits at this year’s CHTF includes a smart lamppost model based on batch sparse coding, which has been applied in Hong Kong’s “Multi-functional Smart Lampposts” Pilot Scheme, with 52 lampposts already installed in Kwun Tong and Kowloon Bay. This lamppost system integrates positioning, Wi-Fi and 5G base station functions, and can also place smart devices to collect city data. It is also a winner of the Special Gold Award at the 47th International Exhibition of Inventions held in Geneva, Switzerland for its innovative BATS technology, which attracted a lot of attention since its debut.
At the exhibition, the Institute of Advanced Polymer Materials of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen popularized to the public the wide application of advanced polymer materials in key industries such as high-end electronic information equipment, intelligent manufacturing, medical devices, aerospace, ocean engineering, etc. This reflected their importance in the national economy, social development and various aspects of people's lives.
Spearheaded by Professor Zhu Shiping, Vice-president of CUHK-Shenzhen and a Fellow of The Academy of Science of the Royal Society of Canada, the institute is dedicated to the research of high performance of high-end polymer materials, with technological innovation as its guide and market service as its orientation.
