COMP recently received an ITF grant under the Partnership Research Programme for a Fintech-related project entitled: “An Innovative Hybrid Intelligence Web System for the Hong Kong Stock Market”. In collaboration with the Hong Kong Institute of Financial Analysts (HKIFA) and Institute of Financial Technologists of Asia (IFTA), this innovative project seeks to combine human intelligence and artificial intelligence (i.e. Hybrid Intelligence) for analysing the Hong Kong stock market.

Supported by the industry partners, COMP organised a project launch seminar “Hong Kong Stock Market: Review and Outlook” on 20 December 2021. The seminar was attended by over a hundred practitioners and representatives from the industry as well as students and alumni.

At the opening, Dr Miranda Lou, Executive Vice President of PolyU and Prof. Christopher Chao, Vice President (Research and Innovation) of PolyU greeted the audiences and delivered the welcome addresses respectively. We are also honoured to invite Mr Joseph Chan, JP, Under Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury, The Government of the HKSAR, and Dr David Chung, JP, Under Secretary for Innovation and Technology, The Government of the HKSAR to be the distinguished guests.

Dr Kenny Tang, Chairman of HKIFA and Mr Paul Pong, Chairman of IFTA were invited as guest speakers and gave a presentation on the Hong Kong Stock Market. Moderated by Dr Henry Chan, Associate Professor and Associate Head of COMP, Dr Tang and Mr Pong exchanged their views about the Hong Kong Stock Market in 2021 from different perspectives. They also expressed their opinions and shared their insights such as forecasting the attractive sectors in the next year.

At the end of the seminar, Dr Henry Chan (the project coordinator) further talked about the overview of the collaborative research and development project (i.e., “An Innovative Hybrid Intelligence Web System for the Hong Kong Stock Market”). Aiming for knowledge transfer and entrepreneurship as well, the project seeks to contribute to Hong Kong’s Fintech development.
