A research team from the State Key Laboratory on Advanced Displays and Optoelectronics Technologies of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has developed a new Liquid-crystal display (LCD), which image resolution, energy efficiency as well as color saturation were markedly enhanced, achieving a crucial breakthrough in display technology.
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) is at the global forefront for the development of an e-fuel energy storage technology that will revolutionize the way energy is currently stored, and open up brand new possibilities for worldwide application.
A research team at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology recently invented a new fusion-based technology which achieves remarkably improved accuracy to position people indoor, enabling novel smart location-based applications such as indoor navigation, location-based personalized recommendation, crowd analysis and people flow control.
An international multi-disciplinary research team led by scientists at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has discovered for the first time a computational framework that could map out the fitness landscape of a crucial protein in the human immunodeficiency virus, potentially paving the way for rational design of a vaccine that may force the deadly virus to mutate into forms that lead to its demise.
Mr Kang Eun Jeon, a doctorate student in HKUST-NIE Social Media Lab under the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering of The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), has developed the “HKUST luXbeacon” – a Bluetooth Low Energy Beacon that can harvest and store energy from both solar and indoor lighting, thereby capable of operating without batteries.
Mr Ming Cheung, a PhD candidate at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, has analyzed 11 million images shared on social media from over 150 countries/locations, and made use of “social signals” to make smart recommendations on daily living that have never been possible.
Two papers by professors and PhD students in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and their collaborators from the Hong Kong Government were honored by best paper awards of leading international geotechnical journals. This marks the first time the awards were given to teams with members all from Hong Kong.
