浸大學者獲選國際電機電子工程師學會院士

Professor Cheung Yiu-ming of the Department of Computer Science of HKBU was recently named Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in recognition of his tremendous contributions to cluster analysis and visual computing. The group elevated to Fellow status for 2018 numbers 300 worldwide, with just seven of them coming from Hong Kong.

The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors upon a person with an outstanding record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year cannot exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total voting membership. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognised by the technical community as a prestigious honour and an important career achievement.

Professor Cheung’s research interests include machine learning, pattern recognition, image and video processing, and optimisation. His work has a variety of applications in data analytics and identity authentication in security-access control systems, among other areas. He is the Founding Chairman of Hong Kong Chapter of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, and Vice Chair of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII). Professor Cheung has over 200 articles published in prestigious peer-reviewed journals and at conferences.

The IEEE is one of the world’s leading professional associations for advancing technology for humanity with over 420,000 members in 160 countries.

香港浸會大學計算機科學系張曉明教授最近獲得國際電機電子工程師學會(IEEE)授予院士名銜,表揚他在聚類分析和可視化計算研究發展領域上的傑出成就。於2018年,全球約300名人士獲授予院士名銜,當中只有七名來自香港。

IEEE的院士名銜是學會中最高級別的成員身份,授予學術界和科技界公認的權威和在電機電子工程專業上貢獻傑出的會員。每年院士候選人經學會專家嚴格評選,當選人數不超過該會當年會員總人數的千分之一。

張教授的研究領域包括機器學習、模式識別、圖像與視頻處理,以及函數優化等,可廣泛應用於數據分析和保安控制系統的身份認證等。他亦是IEEE計算智能協會香港分會創會主席、IEEE計算機協會智能信息學技術委員會副主席。至今,張教授於權威學術期刊及會議上共發表逾200多篇論文。

國際電機電子工程師學會是全球最大的科技界別協會之一,會員遍佈160個國家,共超過42萬人。
