HKBU artificial intelligence expert wins national achievement

浸大人工智能專家膺國家級科學獎

HKBU Associate Vice-President (Research) and Chair Professor in Computer Science Professor Liu Jiming won the 7th Wu Wen Jun Artificial Intelligence Science and Technology Award (Natural Science category, Second-Class) presented by the Chinese Association for Artificial Intelligence (CAAI).

He won the award for the research work relating to large-scale network learning and data mining methods conducted by his team of the HKBU Department of Computer Science together with the team of Jilin University, Mainland China. Professor Liu’s project was selected by professional judges as one of the 12 awarded projects in the category of Natural Science.

Over the years, Professor Liu’s team has systematically developed computational methods for social media community identification, social collaborative filtering, and information or disease diffusion network inference, with wide applications such as disease surveillance and control.

Wu Wen Jun Artificial Intelligence Science and Technology Award, named after the renowned Chinese distinguished mathematician and AI pioneer, is presented by the CAAI to recognise scholars with prominent scientific or technological contributions to areas including Science, Mathematics, and Artificial Intelligence.

浸會大學協理副校長(研究)及計算機科學系講座教授劉際明教授,獲中國人工智能學會頒發第七屆吳文俊人工智能科學技術獎(自然科學獎二等獎)。

劉教授的團隊與內地吉林大學的團隊,合作完成「大規模網絡機器學習與數據挖掘方法」的研究而獲獎。經專業評審甄選後,是項研究與其他11個項目脫穎而出,奪得自然科學界別的殊榮。

多年來,劉教授與團隊在「大規模網絡機器學習與數據挖掘方法」,在社區發現、統計網絡學習、社會化信息檢索、傳播網絡建模與推演、計算流行病學(如跨國界瘧疾主動監控及大規模人口的動態接觸追蹤)等方面取得了創新成果,系統地解決了網絡結構分析和動力學分析中的一些理論難題。

「吳文俊人工智能科學技術獎」是中國人工智能學會以中國著名數學家、人工智能先驅吳文俊先生命名設立的獎項,旨在鼓勵海內外在科學、數學和人工智能領域有傑出貢獻的科技工作者。
