COMP x CAA Academic-Industry Seminar Series – Data Analytics (Jun 2022)

29 Jun 2022

Committed to encouraging knowledge exchange between academia and industry, COMP and the Computing Alumni Association (CAA) co-organised the fourth seminar of the "COMP x CAA Academic-Industry Seminar Series" via Zoom on 21 June 2022.

With more than 100 participants comprising our students, faculty members and alumni, the seminar was started with a warm welcome by Dr Henry Chan, Associate Professor and Associate Head of COMP. Dr Chan then introduced the first speaker, Dr Ken Yiu, Associate Professor, to present his research about approximate range aggregate queries with error guarantees. The research was published at the EDBT conference in 2021. Ken demonstrated different examples and models to introduce the application of range aggregate query. His research interest includes databases, in particular, query processing techniques for spatiotemporal data and multi-dimensional data.

Mr Gary Tang, Associate Data Scientist of OOCL, at the same time an outstanding graduate of COMP, was invited to share practical experience with the data science industry. Gary showed great interest in a data science career before he graduated from COMP. He shared his insight into the future trend, roles and duties of a data scientist and the challenges. At the end of his presentation, he provided handy tips on how to equip oneself in the job searching process.

The seminar was well received by the participants, who also actively participated in the Q&A session and were especially interested in the data science career path. We believe the seminar can inspire students who wish to pursue development in this field.
