PolyU trio advances to Huawei ICT Competition final after winning Asia Pacific stage
A team of PolyU students from the Department of Computing and the Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics (LSGI) has bagged another trophy at the Asia Pacific regional stage of the Huawei Information and Communications Technology Competition 2022.
The team “Polynomials” – with members Feng Yunlin, Zhong Xiuming and Tang Man-kit, under the guidance of their instructor Dr Xu Yang, Assistant Professor of LSGI – won Third Prize in the cloud technology track for their multidisciplinary knowledge, outstanding performance and seamless teamwork.
The three PolyU students are among the 18 winners who stood out from the 114 contestants who had advanced to the regional round. They will continue their journey to the global final of the competition in June 2022, which will be held in Shenzhen.
Members of Team “Polynomials” said they are passionate about big data, AI, cloud technology, and geospatial technologies, as well as their applications in E-Commerce, Internet of Things, and Smart City.
Drawn from 272 leading universities and colleges from across 10 countries and regions in Asia Pacific, over 5,300 students and teachers competed at the Huawei event in one of the two technology tracks: network or cloud. Team “Polynomials” emerged from the local round late last year with the First Prize.
