Thank you for your participation in the Convo’s Poll! The result will be announced early next month on the homepage of the Convocation. We look forward to your continuous support to the CityU Convocation.

The CityU GPT Chatbot, to be launched in the 2023/24 academic year at CityU in response to the rapid development of generative AI (GenAI), will support faculty, staff and students in teaching, learning and administrative activities and assist eight HK Tech 300 start-ups in expanding outside Hong Kong during the first phase of launching.

The CityU GPT Chatbot will provide a free technology integrated learning platform. It conforms to our cyber security rules, and an advanced version will be available to researchers, teachers and admin personnel.

In addition, eight HK Tech 300 start-ups that involve CityU elements and are related to GenAI business have been selected for a Chatbot pilot scheme using the most advanced time-saving technologies to assist in many tasks, such as writing proposals for overseas funding, a process expected to boost these start-ups in the overseas market.

The start-up Mindlayer, which was granted a HK Tech 300 Angel Fund in 2022, is dedicated to offering the best AI experience through its Conversational AI Platform. It uses cutting-edge natural language processing and speech recognition technologies that detect simple instructions and automatically generate materials with the right tone for specific targets.

Mr Kinni Mew, the founder of Mindlayer and a CityU alumnus from the College of Engineering, said using CityU GPT Chatbot helped save costs and enhanced productivity and operating efficiency. “GPT Chatbot can help us generate marketing materials, such as social media posts and tailor-made marketing pitching reports. Compared with issuing only 10 pitching emails per day in the past, we can now send out marketing pitching to up to 50 clients in one day with the GPT Chatbot. Plus we can create eye-catching materials fit for clients’ needs,” he said, adding that both speed and efficiency could be greatly increased.

The Convocation counts on fellow alumni’s continuous support to build an even stronger network. Please watch out for more Convocation events via its website and Facebook!
