Professor Louis LEUNG, member of the Conference Organizing Committee, said, today, technology and techniques in data analytics, data mining, machine learning, semantic analysis, data visualization, and big data research had been gradually dominating the communication industry, and hence increasingly influential to production, dissemination of information and relevant human behaviors.

“HKSYU and the Department of Journalism and Communication are committed to cultivate students with the latest trend of development in the communication industry, and those who seek to cultivate a career in a fast-moving communication industry in Hong Kong. This conference gathers together a group of experts for one-day presentations and discussions aiming at stimulating thoughts and ideas on how big data was impacting communication education especially in data-driven journalism, media/consumer research, and different perspectives the opportunities and challenges big data bring to the media industry.” Professor LEUNG said.

There were around 600 students and colleagues from across campus attended the conference.
