HKU-TCL Joint Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence

Research Projects

To encourage development of cutting-edge researches in the areas of big data science, computer vision, machine learning, and natural language processing, etc., the Centre provides two types of funding including Research Proposals under Designated Topics and Seed Funding.

 

Details of the Scheme:

Fund Amount

Each proposal may request up to HK$1,000,000

The budgets of successful proposals will include reasonable, well-justified costs directly required to complete the project.

Eligibility

Assistant Professor or above from Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Science, HKU.

Each applicant could submit at most one proposal as the role of the principal investigator.

Project DurationAt most two years
ScopeDesignated topics would be provided for each round. The project deliverables include full algorithm solutions, models and application prototype for specific tasks; research reports; papers and datasets. TCL researchers may work closely with the PIs on the funded research projects at HKU.
