Machine Learning Society
While projects do form the core of the society, they will hold little value without the complementing events that help prop them up. Be it talks from academic and industry experts or weekends where anyone can hack and work on ideas, the society is going to host multiple events to unravel some mysteries of the field. With interactive events like ‘Show and Tell’, members get to share their project progress and also talk about what they learnt in the process. The society aims to host events that are interactive, engaging and hands-on.
Student Entrepreneurship Groups

We create a platform for ideas to be shared, developed and realized with cross-faculty collaboration as our bedrock. Through hosting interactive activities that encourage early-stage ideation to workshops that validate business ideas, we aim to provide innovative solutions to societal problems.
We plan to organize an Annual proprietary Hackathon(HackFest) which will not just be limited to HKU students but students from other universities as well. The main purpose behind this is to promote cross-discipline collaboration and give our students a platform to connect with like-minded individuals. This would promote creativity and curiosity among our students which will help them take the initiative to start their own projects. We will also have workshops to prepare the potential participants for the hackathon.
