Mr CHI Fung Cheung Rigsby, a 2015 graduate of BSc (Hons) in Computer Science, won the Second Runner-up in the 'Final Year Project Competition 2014-2015,' organized by the IEEE (Hong Kong) Computational Intelligence Chapter; the Third Prize in the 'Challenge Cup 2015 - Hong Kong University Students Extra-Curriculum Technology Contest' under the category of Information Technology; and the Merit Award in 'Crossover 2015 Pan-Pearl River Delta Region Universities IT Project Competition (Hong Kong SAR Region)', under the supervision of Dr Sarana NUTANONG.

The winning project titled 'ActiveCrowd: Integrating Active Learning with Amazon Mechanical Turk' is a machine learning software platform that was designed and implemented to allow anyone who has basic programming knowledge to build machine learning models and to curate a training dataset for general purposes. The platform adopted active learning technique and integrated scikit-learn, which is a machine learning library written in Python and published under BSD license, with Amazon Mechanical Turk as the label annotator. The framework is able to reduce the implementation effort required for building machine learning models and makes the sample selection process completely automated.
