AI x HK OpenCup 2023

Date: 25/11/2023

Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) successfully concluded the second edition of the “AI x HK OpenCup” competition with the Award Presentation Ceremony held on 25 November. Participants from secondary schools and tertiary institutions showcased their creativity, leveraging AI technologies and collaborative efforts to propose innovative solutions to address pressing challenges facing Hong Kong.

Co-hosted with the Hong Kong Society of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (HKSAIR), the event attracted participation from 94 teams, comprising over 370 students from both Secondary and Tertiary categories this year. Their proposals for tackling the challenges in Hong Kong have to align with the sustainable development goals set forth by the United Nations, including good health and well-being, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, and sustainable cities and communities.

Our project “COMET”, which aimed to provide overworked students and adults with fun but effective exercises and improve their physical and mental health, won the 1st-runner up in the Secondary Students Category.

The Competition is a stellar showcase of innovation, collaboration, and commitment to addressing global issues through AI technology. Its journey began with an opening-cum-briefing session on 16 September, and culminated in a Final Pitching event where 16 shortlisted teams presented their innovative solutions. The judging panel, consisting of experts from academia and industry, played a crucial role in assessing the projects and selecting the award recipients.
