International Knowledge Centre for Engineering Sciences and Technology: Visit of Chinese Academy of Engineering delegation

12 February 2015

A five member delegation from the Chinese Academy of Engineering, led by Prof Xu Liu, Vice President, met with Prof Ian Burnett, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology on 3rd February to learn about UTS’s research capability in data knowledge and analytics. Their visit included discussions with the Centre for Quantum Computation and Intelligent Systems (QCIS) and the Advanced Analytics Institute (AAi). Prof Liu gave a presentation on the progress of work at the International Knowledge Centre for Engineering Sciences and Technology (IKCEST) at the Academy, which falls under the auspices of UNESCO. The purpose of the delegation was to explore the potential for cooperation between the Academy and UTS.

IKCEST’s mission is to establish a public data service platform, to develop the technology for mining and analysing knowledge from big data, and to foster interdisciplinary engineering talents with big data processing ability. At the same time, it is building resources in various vertical industries to help promote capacity-building for developing countries. Prof Liu has expressed great interest in AAi’s RED business model and its market-driven approach, and was inspired by AAi’s level of industry engagement. He encouraged AAi and its associates to consider IKCEST as a platform for collaboration with developing countries in the areas of big data and data analytics.
