遨遊於科學海洋 可譽師生參與英國劍橋大學科研培訓 | An inspiring learning experience Scientific research in the University of Cambridge in England

 

            在上學年,高中許立邦、葉善權和王承韜同學於「WYNG Philomathia Machine Learning/AI Competition 2018-19」成為了勝出隊伍,與其他勝出隊伍(來自聖保祿學校、聖士提反書院、瑪利曼中學)一同前往英國,參觀劍橋大學,體驗大學課程,更進一步了解當地科研的發展。

            在英國之旅,三位同學與章景恆老師遊覽了有八百多年歷史的劍橋大學,參觀了學校的工程系。同學更有幸與劍橋大學的教授和學生共進晚餐,度過難忘的晚上。立邦、善權和承韜不忘學習,他們研究如何修改參賽的機器,然後把設計圖交給劍橋大學的教授和博士生,希望能夠獲得寶貴的意見。教授和博士生細心講解機械和程式的關係,讓三位同學了解更多AI建構的方法。

            三位同學了解到AI在英國的應用情況。在英國,人們把AI應用在日常生活,例如種植。這一切的體驗,讓可譽同學大開眼界,明白到要對AI有更進一步的認識,必須下更多的功夫。參加「WYNG Philomathia Machine Learning/AI Competition 2018-19」,章老師和三位同學懷著對科研的熱誠,埋頭苦幹作研究,希望在科學的海洋探索。及後的英國之旅,讓老師和同學體會到科學海洋的廣闊,相信他們會繼續以堅毅的心,認真進行科學研究。

 

A team of Ho Yu students, namely Hui Lap Pong, Wong Shing To and Yip Sin Kuen honorably won WYNG Philomathia Machine Learning/AI Competition 2018-19 and was entitled to a weeklong all-expenses paid trip to England this summer together with the other two winning teams from St. Paul's Convent School and St. Stephen's College, respectively. Accompanied by their coach teacher, Mr. Cheung King Hang, they experienced college life at the University of Cambridge and explored the local development of science research.

During the trip, our team was granted a golden opportunity to visit the University of Cambridge, one of the oldest and renowned universities in the world with a history dating back more than 800 years. They paid a visit to the Department of Engineering and were invited to meet the professors and PhD students of Cambridge and have dinner together. ( It was such an unforgettable night! Besides, in order to make further improvements on their winning machine, the three students modified their plan on the design and sought for professional advice from the professors and PhD students. They had a deeper understanding of AI development after receiving detailed and professional explanation on the relationship between mechanics and applications.

The trip definitely inspired the participants by further exposing them to the field of science development. Our team did not just have their knowledge about how science shapes the life of the local community, but also learned that AI is widely used in different industries such as farming in England. Through the competition and the trip, they have realized that perseverance and a lot more hard work is undoubtedly necessary to further explore AI applications. Passionate in science research and experiments, they are determined to experience the wonder of science by strengthening their knowledge, meeting the challenges and contributing towards the scientific and technological world in the future.
