MORE ABOUT THE SOCIETY

THE STORY OF BIRTH 

Thanks to the society attention on higher education, the leading international perspective and the open mindset for innovative technologies, the advanced research capability of Hong Kong has always been International top tier over the past few decades.

To make an emphasis, in the fields of intelligent science and robotics, Hong Kong ranks as the third academic place in the world in terms of the influence of subject references,according to the statistical results released by higher education institutions in 2016. Academic rankings demonstrate that Hong Kong is of great academic influence, talent potential and depth of research in AIR research.

On the other hand, the capital capacity and environment for investment and legislation of Hong Kong are internationally recognized. Hong Kong has demonstrated its huge industrial radiation capacity in finance, trade and logistics. Hong Kong will also play a core role in promoting Industrial upgrading and economic development with the deep cooperation among Greater Bay Areas. All of the above offer a fertile for AIR application.

We are expecting Hong Kong to play a core role in the future AIR development with the recognized advantages of Hong Kong in both academia and industry. 

So we initiated HK-SAIR to explore the research and application frontier of AIR in Hong Kong. The vision and mission of HK-SAIR got wide approval, with the hope of funding AIR research and education, transferring research results into application and promoting the exchange between academia and industry. Then as a result, the birth of HK-SAIR is witnessed by academia, industry and official participants, as a platform for the exchange and development of various fields in AIR.

We are here and long TO EXPLORE THE RESEARCH AND APPLICATION FRONTIER OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND ROBOTICS with you!

WHAT MAKES HKSAIR DIFFERENT?

TO BE 4 CONNECTORS

1. Government Consulting & Regulatory Liaison: we work with national and regional governments to develop AI strategies and release white paper. We also act as a communicator with regulatory agencies on behalf of academia and industry. 

2. Academia-Industry Partnership: we help industry know advanced research progress and accelerate AIR revolution with University-Industry partnership, ensuring the academic research transform into valuable business opportunity and building the joint projects for production impact. We also collaborate with VC to incubate the innovative ideas and raise capital for the startup projects.

3. Education, Training & Competition: we create an educational training system to engage young talents and corporates, a platform where the students have access to application-oriented training with more intern practices and the corporates could be the first to recruit the brightest minds in competition to their workforce.

4. HK – Shenzhen – Big Bay Collaboration: we closely collaborate with Shenzhen and Big Bay areas to promote multilateral communications and joint activities on all aspects of AIR industry development.
