Ms. Kwok Hin-Chi, Mr. Li Chengxi and Dr. Pai Zheng from the Research Group of AI for Industrial Digital Servitization (RAIDS) have won the 2022 Champion Award (Bachelor/Sub-degree Level) of the Paper Competition, organized by the Control Automation & Instrumentation Division of The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). Their winning paper is entitled “A Meta-Reinforcement Learning Based Control Approach for Assisting Human-Robot Collaboration in Personalized Production”, which aims to enable collaborative robots (cobots) to acquire basic skills and perform tasks based on personalised production requirements. The proposed method can improve robotic learning efficiency and quickly adapt to new tasks for human operators.
Ms. Kwok Hin-Chi is currently a second year student of the BSc (Hons) in Enterprise Engineering with Management and Undergraduate Research and Innovation Scheme (URIS) holder in the ISE department under Dr. Pai Zheng’s supervision.
Mr. Li Chengxi is PhD students in the ISE department, under Dr. Pai Zheng’s supervision. His PhD topics are related to the reinforcement learning, augmented reality and robot learning for smart manufacturing.
Dr. Pai Zheng is currently the Assistant Professor, Wong Tit Shing Endowed Young Scholar in Smart Robotics, and Lab-in-Charge of Digitalized Service Laboratory (DSL), in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, HKSAR. His research interest mainly lies in smart product-service systems, human-robot collaboration, and smart manufacturing systems.
Congratulations again to the winners, and we hope they have a great success on the study and research trip.
