A multi-disciplinary research project, led by CityU, has developed a platform of tools to improve safety and reliability in railway system health monitoring, crowd safety and disruption management.
6G Communications
A team of multi-disciplinary experts, led by Professor Chan Chi-hou, Chair Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering (EE) and Director of the State Key Laboratory of Terahertz and Millimeter Waves (SKLTMW) at CityU, has been working on advancing the development of terahertz (THz) technology for 6G communications, imaging and spectroscopy.
With digital and social media becoming an integral part of people’s daily lives for information and communication, the proliferation of digital technologies is changing not only how public opinion can be represented, but also how it can be studied.
Combining the advantages of first-class scientific research capability and extensive fintech industry experience, a joint laboratory in financial technology and engineering at CityU has been undertaking cutting-edge research to create industry-leading solutions, especially in financial risk identification and management.
As the mechanisms of biomolecular interactions, which are the key to finding the causes of diseases and developing new drugs, have yet to be fully understood, developing the concepts and tools of multidimensional data analysis and image recognition can help advance medical science and other fields to the next level.
A research team from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) is the first team worldwide to routinely apply “virtopsy”, a pioneer dead body examination technique, on stranded cetaceans to find out their causes of death, health conditions, as well as the anthropogenic impact on their well-being.
A recent joint-research project co-led by the scientist from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has now developed a 2D perovskite material for the most efficient LEDs.
Value of Values
Professor Maurice Benayoun, in the School of Creative Media (SCM) and a renowned artist, theorist and curator in media art, has been working on the “MindSpaces HK - Responsive Neuro-design for Urbanism, Architecture and Interior Design” project with interactive exhibitions to consider social, innovation and technology challenges in a different way.
Fish Tank
To protect the marine ecological environment and facilitate the sustainable development of the marine economy in Hong Kong, a CityU-led marine research team has developed a new aquaculture technique by establishing a floating, indoor weatherproof fish farm with a seawater recirculating system to replace conventional fish rafts.
Microfluidics array technology
New medicines can save and improve lives, but drug discovery is an extremely long and expensive process. One of the top scientists at CityU is developing an integrated system based on his internationally recognised, award-winning biochip technology, with the aim of providing a novel drug-screening tool with greatly reduced drug development time and cost.
