“Echo-FAS: Acoustic- based Face Anti- Spoofing”
Robust spoof-proof security system for face ID verification on mobile devices, based on live global/local 3D acoustic profiling using the existing speaker and mic, and with no need to add any expensive hardware.
Professor Sam Kwong Tak-wu, Chair Professor, Department of Computer Science (CS)
Dr Wang Shiqi, Assistant Professor, CS
Dr Wang Meng, Postdoc, CS, and Sun Zhenhao, PhD student, CS
“Learning-based Genome Codec”
Harnessing the power of neural network techniques, this computational codec (encoder–decoder) compresses genome sequence data files with much higher compression ratio than traditional tools, and is now the core technique in a new standard for genome compression.
ACM Fellow 2022
Prof Yuguang Fang was elected an ACM Fellow in 2022 for his remarkable contributions to wireless networks and mobile computing.
The ACM Fellows Program recognizes the top 1% of ACM Members for their outstanding accomplishments in computing and information technology and/or outstanding service to ACM and the larger computing community. In 2022, ACM has named 57 of is members ACM Fellows, and Prof Fang is one of the two researchers from Hong Kong receiving this honor.
Funding success in the RGC’s Collaborative Research Fund (CRF) 2022/23
The CityU-led research “Enabling Metadata-private and Accountable Networks at Scale”, initiated and coordinated by Prof Cong WANG in collaboration with researchers from HKU, HKUST, and U of Toronto, has been awarded HK$7.52 million in the Collaborative Research Fund (CRF) from the Research Grants Council (RGC) in the 2022-23 exercise. This funding success is a testament to our dedication to research excellence and capacity to take a leading role in conducting cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional research.
IEEE Fellow 2023
Prof Jianping Wang has been elevated to Fellow of the prestigious Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in the class of 2023 for her contributions to resiliency of complex systems.
The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the Board of Directors upon a person with an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year does not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total voting Institute membership.
