Among the eight categories, the Smart People Award covers smart inclusion, smart ageing, and smart education and learning. We would continue to promote AI education in Hong Kong and nurture our next generation as smart citizen.

Professor YAM Yeung, the Principal Investigator of the Project, delivered a thank you speech at the Smart People Award Presentation Ceremony on 29 November 2021. Being able to stand out among the top contestants in the fields of academia, business and technology are definitely a great support and trust from the society to the Project.

This award recognizes the efforts of the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Project's professors, team colleagues and secondary school teachers to promote the application of Information Technology education to people of different ages, social and economic backgrounds in the past two years.
