Stanley Ho Big Data Decision Analytics Research Centre Established

CUHK established the Stanley Ho Big Data Decision Analytics Research Centre, the first among all tertiary institutions in Hong Kong, to bring together faculty members and researchers from different disciplines to address challenges posed by the unprecedented volumes of data. Prof. Helen Meng has been appointed as founding director of the centre.

The centre's research aims to address important issues spanning six major areas, namely health care, environment, social networks, finance, logistics and learning. The centre also collaborates with industry partners including IBM and Microsoft.

The centre has initiated a number of novel research projects, including urban transportation, air pollution and health, hospital logistics in emergency departments, mortality risks for different drugs, and online language learning. Recently, the centre organized a joint workshop with MIT to address new opportunities in education afforded by e-learning—addressing issues related to pedagogy, technology and learning behaviour.
