IMMC-QEF Field Study

Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR)
Hong Kong Institute of Science & Innovation, Chinese Academy of Sciences

中國科學院香港創新研究院 人工智能與機器人創新中心

Date: 26 Nov 2022


Location: Hong Kong Science Park, Hong Kong

A national research center in R&D of AI and robots.

Learning Content: 

Applications and innovations in R&D in robotics; getting close-up and lectures in STEM education.

Combining theory and practice can make learning go further. Therefore, the IMMC-QEF field study is to allow teachers and students to get out of the classroom to gain insight beyond classroom lectures. On 26 Nov 2022, with the support of the Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR) Hong Kong Institute of Science & Innovation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, teachers and students visited national research centers for research on artificial intelligence and robotics, and even researchers with doctoral degrees and associate professor from university gave lectures on artificial intelligence, medical robots, artificial intelligence and art for teachers and students. And both teachers and students benefited a lot.

CAIR has set up an exhibition hall, which includes artificial intelligence and medical robots for various purposes, and is explained by many researchers, such as MicroNeuro Flexible Endoscopic Robotic System for Neurosurgey, Automatic Robotic Vessel Ultrasound Acquisition and XiaoZhi Driving Assistant App and so on.

Then Dr. Yuxi WANG and Dr. Jian HU, Dr. Wang's lecture were "Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision". He first introduced artificial intelligence and computer vision, and then showed the application of computer vision, such as image classification, object detection, Autonomous driving, etc., as well as the application of artificial intelligence in this field, and finally mentioned the key role of mathematics (modeling) in artificial intelligence and scientific research.

Dr. Hu's topic was "Flexible Minimally Invasive Medical Robot". He first introduced industrial robots and humanoid robots, then talked about the characteristics of soft robots, and specifically mentioned the application of soft robots in surgery and internal inspection.

Finally, Dr. Qifeng LIU, associate professor of the Department of Computer Science, at Hong Kong Baptist University, explained the relationship between art and AI with the topic "Principles and Practice of AI and Generative Arts". He started with the development of art, including ancient Egypt, Japan, and more modern Impressionism, Abstract Art, etc., and then talk about how modern mathematics and computer technology are applied to criminal art, as well as artworks generated by computers.
