Mr. Wong shared his insights on the roles of ASTRI in reindustrialization. Mr. Wong explained that if Hong Kong is keen on bearing a more important role in reindustrialisation and industry 4.0, the city should focus on the following 3 areas including:
- Increased investment in R & D,
- Cultivation of research talents, and
- Development of Intelligent Manufacturing Technologies
Mr. Wong shared with participants how ASTRI’s Innovative Runway Programme (AIR Programme) helps nurture young tech-entrepreneurs. He also discussed various industrial applications of ASTRI’s technologies including Random Bin Picking for Industrial Robot, Deep Learning Defect Inspection, Image / Video Tracking and Recognition and Human Motion Recognition, to name but a few.
