HKBU student awarded InnoTech Scholarship

浸大生獲頒創新科技獎學金

James See (Computer Science, Year 2) was awarded a scholarship of HK$150,000 under the Innovation and Technology Scholarship Award Scheme 2018. The scholarship will support his artificial intelligence studies in the UK later this year. He is interested in learning more about medical imaging technologies.

James used to be a gaming addict who played truant for a prolonged period of time. Despite his poor academic results, his secondary school principal made an exception and promoted him to secondary four. James was enlightened by his secondary school teachers and classmates, and became serious about his studies. To achieve better results, he resat the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination and was admitted to HKBU.

James said he is particularly interested in science and graphics because of online games. He said, “Compared with text, graphics attracts my attention more. I think graphics allows us to see more things than text can.”

James believes there is huge room for development in artificial intelligence, which when integrated with medical technologies can improve people’s lives.

James encourages the younger generation “to think clearly about their interests and development path and not to abandon education while pursuing their interests.”

This year, 25 outstanding local undergraduates were selected for the scholarship.

計算機科學系二年級史勝義同學獲頒今屆創新科技獎學金共港幣15萬元,今年年底將遠赴英國,修讀有關人工智能的課程,了解外國在醫療成像技術的最新發展。

勝義的求學經歷並不平坦,小時候沉迷電子遊戲,更長時間曠課,成績因此一落千丈。中三時幸得校長破格讓他升上中四,加上老師、同學們的支持,促使他開始認真對待學業,為了考獲更好的成績而重考一次文憑試,最終入讀浸大。

勝義笑言從小因電子遊戲而特別喜愛科學與圖像。他說:「相比文字,圖像對我有較大的吸引力。我認為從圖像可以看到更多文字表達不來的資訊。」

勝義認為人工智能未來有很大的發展空間,與醫學科技結合更可以幫助社會,改善現代人的生活素質。

勝義寄語現時的年輕人必須認清自己的喜好去發展,追尋興趣的同時不要完全荒廢學業。

創新科技獎學金計劃旨在嘉獎傑出大學本科生,今屆共有25名得獎者。
