「WYNG Philomathia Machine Learning/AI Competition 2018-19」結果已經公佈，可譽參賽隊伍「Eddie & Jason & Ben」獲勝。「Eddie & Jason & Ben」成員包括S5B班的許立邦、葉善權和王承韜同學，指導老師為章景恆老師。章老師以及三位同學將於7月2日至7月9日，與另外兩隊勝出隊伍(來自聖保祿學校、聖士提反書院)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。
「WYNG Philomathia Machine Learning/AI Competition 2018-19」旨在鼓勵高中同學接觸和探索「機器學習」以及「人工智能」。比賽要求參賽隊伍從尺寸、成熟度或損壞程度來判斷草莓的質量，參賽隊伍需要運用科學和工程知識來設計系統，以自動區分高品質的草莓和一般品質的草莓。
從構思到比賽，「Eddie & Jason & Ben」整整花了4個月的時間進行數據收集及研究。從拍攝介紹影片到收到消息順利入圍，再進入真實展示研究成果階段，每一步盡顯心思與耐性。「Eddie & Jason & Ben」的堅毅得到回報，勝出了比賽，獲得在劍橋大學交流學習的機會。
我們期待章老師與「Eddie & Jason & Ben」成員在英國滿載而歸！
Winning a trip to the University of Cambridge in England
in WYNG Philomathia Machine Learning/AI Competition 2018-19
Congratulations! A team of Ho Yu students has honorably won WYNG Philomathia Machine Learning/AI Competition 2018-19 and is entitled to a weeklong all-expenses paid trip to England together with the other two winning teams from St. Paul's Convent School and St. Stephen's College respectively. Members of this team, ‘Eddie, Jason and Ben’, include three S.5 students, namely Hui Lap Pong, Wong Shing To and Yip Sin Kuen. Their coach teacher, Mr. Cheung King Hang, is also granted this chance to join the trip to England with these winning students. They will experience college life at the University of Cambridge, as well as visit London from 2nd to 9th July, 2019.
The competition aims at empowering individuals through education and engagement, and encouraging machine and AI initiatives in local upper secondary students. The contestants were asked to identify quality variations of individual strawberries in terms of size, ripeness, or damage. They needed to use their science and engineering knowledge to design a system to automatically discriminate high quality strawberries from others.
‘Eddie, Jason and Ben’ spent four months on data collection and data analysis. They also put much effort into producing an English-narrated demonstration video clip before they were selected to enter the final in which they presented a prototype they created in a judging interview. Though there were difficult times throughout the preparation for the competition, with perseverance and hard work, this team was able to overcome the difficulties and become one of the winning teams.
Sincerely hope that ‘Eddie, Jason and Ben’ and Mr. Cheung will enjoy a fruitful trip by experiencing overseas learning in a world-class campus environment.
