Artificial Intelligence

CAIR has made significant contributions to the development of Zidong Taichu, a well-known AI large model in China.

  • Multi-modal understanding and generation. 
  • Enhanced cognitive, comprehension and creative abilities.
  • Won the first prize in the competitions at ACM MM2021 and ICCV 2021.
  • Won the SAIL (“Superior AI Leader”) award at WAIC 2022.

CAIR have developed an AI large model for surgery and interventions, named CARES Copilot.

  • A trustworthy and explainable surgical large model for surgery and interventions
  • Aims to improve safety and efficiency of operations
  • Has been tested in various hospitals in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area
  • Officially launched to global users at Huawei CONNECT Conference 2023

  • Developing a series of brain-inspired intelligence methods, with characteristics of good generalization, adaptability, robustness and interpretability.
  • Building an AI testing system in open environments, with database and testing protocols, supporting various AI tasks.
  • Founding an innovative research team with international influence.
  • Brain-inspired intelligence learning methods
  • Perception application with standards and strategies for comprehensive evaluation in open domain.
  • Proposed ODD network to discover the underlying causal relations (e.g., gravity, friction, velocity, collision) and predict the future states in the physical world.
  • Achieve state-of-the-art predictive results in answering reasoning questions related to physical events depicted in a video.

Physical Phenomena

Object Dynamics Distillation Network (ODDN)

  • Proposed Inverse Graphics Capsule Network (IGC-Net), which incorporates 3D modelling to better handle the views of objects, achieving state-of-the-art performance in face part discovery on the BP4D and Multi-PIE datasets. 
  • For the first time, successful object part discovery has been realized beyond the MNIST digit dataset using capsule network.

Learning Objective

  • Propose a Convolutional Prototype Network (CPN) to enhance the robustness of CNN in open-set recognition. Compared to SoftMax, improve 5 percentage points on ImageNet database.
  • Propose a Reusable Architecture Growth (RAG) for continuous learning of new scenes. RAG reduces the error of combined training by 4 percentage points via finding optimal solutions for different scenes.
