CityU Distinguished Lecture - How to Make an Artificial Vision System Smart?

Most artificial visual systems consist of cameras and computers, like eyes and brain of a human being, but with low level linkage model between the two parts comparing to a human being.  In this talk, Prof. Wen Gao would like to discuss how we can improve the linkage model to make the artificial vision system smart. Prof. Wen Gao (Member of Chinese Academy of Engineering; Boya Chair Professor and Director of Faculty of Information and Engineering Science, Peking University) was our guest speaker and his presentation topic named “How to make a Visual Computing and Cognitive (VCC) system smart”.


Firstly, Prof. Wen Gao compared the Engineering VCC system and Hman-like VCC system. Recently, a good tool for camera and computer linkage was Deep Learning by Neutral Network. 


Then Prof. Wen Gao briefed the eye evolution from compound eye to fish eye to bird eye and then to human eye.  Biological vision system included Eyes, Pathways and Visual Field of the Brain.


And then he compared Biological System and Artificial System of three key parts that were Digital Retina, Networking and Cloud Computing.  


VCC had four contributions as follows:
1.      Background Modeling based Surveillance Video Coding
2.      Visual Feature Compression for Visual Search
3.      Joint Rate-Distortion (R-D) and Rate-Accuracy (R-A) Optimization
4.      Standards for digital retina

HKSQ Technical visit to Hong Kong West Kowloon Station

HKSQ arranged a technical visit to Hong Kong West Kowloon Station on 21st Dec 2018.  Hong Kong West Kowloon is the terminus of the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link. It is the only station in the Hong Kong section and connects to the mainland China section through a dedicated tunnel.  It was constructed by MTR Corporation.  In the beginning, MTR representative introduced Hong Kong West Kowloon Station in the High Speed Rail Media Centre.

HKSQ & HKQAA presentation for TID SME Development Fund

In order to enhance the startups quality management awareness and assist their development, HKSQ and HKQAA are seeking TID SME Development Fund to study the best practice of startup management system.  Today, Mr. Bryan Peng and Mr. Adams Wong (HKQAA) and I (HKSQ) attended the presentation on our proposal named “Feasibility Study on the Quality of Hong Kong Start-up Development for Supporting the Sustainable Business Growth” to TID funding vetting panel (19th Dec 2018).  


SME Development Fund (SDF) was launched in 2001 to provide financial support to non-profit-distributing organizations to implement projects which aim at enhancing the competitiveness of Hong Kong small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in general or in specific sectors. It has ceased to receive application since 1 October 2018.

HKSQ supported Hong Kong companies (including Corporation, SMEs and Startup) to enhance management system for long time through different activities such as seminars, technical visits, study missions and international conferences, etc. 

One of my recently publication about startup named “Implementing the Quality Startup Management System model in Hong Kong: a case study” and posted at https://jqualityinnovation.springeropen.com/articles/10.1186/s40887-017-0013-x .

Most of our activities cooperation with HKQAA for startup are recorded in the reference.

The 2nd Nation Higher Education Teacher Training Course for "Introduction to Artificial Intelligence" (第二期全国高校《人工智能导论》师资培训班) (Day 3)

The 2nd Nation Higher Education Teacher Training Course for “Introduction of Artificial Intelligence” (第二期全国高校《人工智能导论》师资培训班) was organized by CAAI from 14th to 16th Dec 2018 in Fuzhou.  In Day 3, I met Prof. Ma Shaoping (马少平) (清华大学计算机系教授、博士生导师; 中国人工智能学会副理事长) and took a photo for memory.  He told me that he had visited Department of Computer Science, CityU many years ago.  


Day 3 (20181216):
Prof. Ma Shaoping (马少平) was the first speaker in the Day 3 and his topic named “Search Technology” (搜索技术).  Search problem included space and path.  


Then Prof. Ma introduced different search algorithms. Blind search (盲目搜索) included Depth First Search (DFS) (深度优先搜索) and Width First Search (WFS) (宽度优先搜索). DFS was not guarantee to find the optimal solution if the depth limit was wrong.  WFS should find the solution if it had but resource consumption was high (see following diagram).  


And then Prof. Ma mentioned the Heuristic Algorithm (启发式算法) which also called A Searching Algorithm (A算法). If A Searching Algorithm fulfilled heuristic function - h(n) <= h*(n), it became A* (A Start) Searching Algorithm which usually used for the process of finding a path between multiple points, called "nodes". 


After that he stated Alpha–beta pruning (α-ꞵ剪枝) which employed for chess game (except GO) that seek to decrease the number of nodes and evaluated by the minimax algorithm in its search tree.

The 2nd Nation Higher Education Teacher Training Course for "Introduction to Artificial Intelligence" (第二期全国高校《人工智能导论》师资培训班) (Day 2)

The 2nd Nation Higher Education Teacher Training Course for “Introduction of Artificial Intelligence” (第二期全国高校《人工智能导论》师资培训班) was organized by CAAI from 14th to 16th Dec 2018 in Fuzhou.  In Day 2, I met Prof. Wang Wanliang (王万良) (浙江工业大学计算机科学与技术学院院长、软件学院院长、教授) and took a photo for memory.  Prof. Wang Wanliang was old friend of Prof. Cai Wen (蔡文) and executive committee member of Extenics Society, Chinese Association for Artificial Intelligence (CAAI) (中國人工智能學會可拓學專業委員會).


Day 2 (20181215):
Prof. Wang Wanliang (王万良) was the first speaker in Day 2 for three subjects in the morning.  Before the official topic, he introduced the “AI course development and education method” to us. 


Firstly, Prof. Wang mentioned the “Higher Education for AI Innovation Action Plan” (高等学校人工智能创新行动计划) which was issued in April 2018.  It included enhancing the AI innovation system, talent training and commercialization. 


Then Prof. Wang compared AI talents distribution in the world.  China was found much behind USA. 


Finally, he explained some misunderstanding on AI education as follows:
Error 1: Poor background can’t learn it (基础差学不了)
Prof. Wong said University had already opened AI courses. High school and even primary school also taught AI courses.
Error 2: Studied but didn’t know how to do it. (学了不会做)
He explained the most important was taught the concept and student could think how to use AI to solve complex problem rather than solved by themselves.  Thinking is much important than doing.
Error 3: Too theoretical and difficult to understand (太理论难理解)
He added that AI theories were not completed. But many things were similar human thinking to solve problem.
Error 4: Don’t know which books are suitable to read (不知道看什么书)
Prof. Wang told us that’s dependent on what purpose you selected.
Error 5: AI course difficult to teach (人工智能课程不好教)
Prof. Wang suggested to teach case study in application and development teaching project by topic, as well as, integrated research into teaching. 

Then Prof. Wang started the first topic named “Knowledge Representation” (知识表) that was the fundamental of human intelligent.  It included knowledge concepts, generation methods, and framework, as well as, status space.
