Hopcroft Institute for Advanced Study in Information Sciences, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen
The Hopcroft Institute for Advanced Information Science (the “Institute”) was founded by John E. Hopcroft, the Turing Award winner in 1986. Prof. Hopcroft received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1964, and he is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
One of the purposes of establishing the institute is to provide an excellent research environment where scholars and scientists may conduct research on artificial intelligence and computer science.
The Institute would engage in research on super distributed system, security and privacy protection for distributed data, data intensive computing, content and scenario perceptional computing, and deep learning-based intelligent computing, which are all highly complex disciplines and will produce a huge impact on social development.
