Significant research funding secured to advance sustainable development and mental healthcare in Hong Kong
To support the local art community and international cultural development, PolyU hosted the Asia Pacific Art and Culture Technology Forum cum the Opening of the Research Centre for Cultural and Art Technology and the PolyU-NVIDIA Joint Research Centre at the end of July. The initiatives aim to establish a world-leading research centre in culture and art technology at PolyU via conducting innovative research, fostering knowledge transfer, and facilitating industrial-academic collaboration.
Leveraging Hong Kong’s position in the Greater Bay Area, the PolyU Research Centre for Cultural and Art Technology will serve as a platform to create synergies between PolyU and different industry partners. It will house the newly established PolyU-NVIDIA Joint Research Centre and other joint centres with various corporations in the culture and art-tech, entertainment, and creative sectors. The PolyU-NVIDIA Joint Research Centre is the world’s first art technology joint research centre, combining the strengths of NVIDIA’s technologies in AI, data analytics and high-performance computing, as well as PolyU’s expertise in cross-disciplinary research and education.
To foster industrial-academic collaboration, the Asia Pacific Art and Culture Technology Forum provided opportunities for PolyU and industry partners to explore future creative collaborations. At the event, distinguished leaders from NVIDIA, Tencent Games Lightspeed Studios, Zhejiang University, The University of California at Davis and others shared their insights into the future of technology in arts and culture development, such as the applications of generative AI. Professor Henry Duh, Director of PolyU Research Centre for Cultural and Art Technology and PolyU-NVIDIA Joint Research Centre, announced the "Call for Global Collaboration" that aims at supporting Hong Kong’s art and culture.
