A group of PhD students from PolyU’s Department of Computing beat more than 3,000 teams from 13 countries and regions to win a First Class Award in the first National Artificial Intelligence Challenge. The team applied their professional knowledge and internship experience to create an artificial intelligence application in the field of video/vision.


The three students, Zeng Hui, Yang Xi and Liang Jie, who have previously completed internships at the Alibaba DAMO Academy’s Artificial Intelligence Centre, explored the performance of the 4K high dynamic range standard in terms of image resolution, details, colour and dynamic range, and designed practical solutions based on their research.


Since winning the competition, the students have been collaborating with the DAMO Academy to implement their research in practical applications with a view to meeting upcoming demand as 4K displays grow in popularity.
