Impact Projects 2020-21

Multifunctional filter for public health protection.

Professor Chuyang Y. Tang

Project Objectives:

Project Description:

Removal of contaminants from air and water are critical for the protection of public health. This project aims to employ a nanofiber-based multifunctional and reusable filter to remove pathogens and heavy metals from contaminated water and respiratory droplets from air. Efficient water filters and face masks will be developed and prototyped, which can serve people and communities that lack essential protection. The project has the potential to bring major public benefits, particularly amid the global outbreak of COVID-19.

Target Deliverables in 2020/21:

Cloud Appreciation: Imaging the Sky

Dr H.F. Ting

Through organizing a “Total Sky Imager Design Competition”, the project aims at (1) strengthening students’ ability to integrate and apply knowledge and skills in engineering and meteorology; (2) nurturing their creativity, problem solving and communication skills, and sparking their interest in engineering; (3) facilitating knowledge exchange through a public project exhibition; (4) increasing the public awareness and preparedness on weather and climate impact through visible sky monitoring and cloud and weather observations; and (5) enhancing young generations’ appreciation of the nature through creating time-lapse total sky videos.

Developing a Smart and Privacy-Preserved Contact Tracing Application for the Elderly

Dr Vincent W.L. Tam

The key objectives of this project is to build a more harmonious society for the elderly with care and respect to enhance their health, quality of living and social life in Hong Kong as one of the smart cities through intelligent algorithms and smart sensing technologies.

Most elderly people always find it difficult to recall specific person(s) come into contact probably due to their poor memories, prolonged sickness or other factors, thus making them more susceptible to pandemic attacks even for the common flu. In April of 2020, the Apple and Google announced to work together to enable Bluetooth-based contact tracing technologies. In this project, our team will make the best use of such contact tracing technologies to develop an intelligent mobile application to trace and analyze the (potentially) risky contacts for the elderly in elderly homes or day care centers.

An intelligent mobile application for contact tracing of the elderly will be delivered in the funding year (i.e. 2020 – 2021) concerned.

Promote the Use of AI Apps to Facilitate Community Stroke Rehabilitation

Dr Wilton Fok

Stroke rehabilitation is crucial to minimize impairment in stroke survivors. However, community rehabilitation services in Hong Kong are limited, and have been severely affected during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, potentially jeopardizing the recovery potential of stroke survivors. This interdisciplinary collaborative project aims to develop a mobile application incorporating artificial intelligence to facilitate community rehabilitation in stroke patients. The application will be integrated into services of the HK Society of Rehabilitation to assist physicians and therapists and enable patients to continue with rehabilitation exercises at home or in elderly centres, hence providing a timely solution during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The capstone experience should focus on integration and/or application of knowledge and skills rather than only on the acquisition of new knowledge and skills. It should be student-driven, requiring students to take ownership and responsibility for the experience.

The Meaning of Capstone Project :

Also called a capstone experience, culminating project, or senior exhibition, among many other terms, a capstone project is a multifaceted assignment that serves as a culminating academic and intellectual experience for students, typically during their final year of high school or middle school, or at the end of an academic program or learning-pathway experience.

Capstone projects are generally designed to encourage students to think critically, solve challenging problems, and develop skills such as oral communication, public speaking, research skills, media literacy, teamwork, planning, self-sufficiency, or goal setting. In most cases, the projects are also interdisciplinary, in the sense that they require students to apply skills or investigate issues across many different subject areas or domains of knowledge.
