TEMG4950 Corporate Project is supported by company sponsors to provide students with hands-on experience in solving complex real business problems and polish their advanced skills in strategic thinking and executive communication.
According to latest market surveys by Human Resources consulting firms, today’s leading organizations are using machine learning–based tools to automate decision processes, and they’re starting to experiment with more-advanced uses of artificial intelligence (AI) for digital transformation. AI is impacting recruitment sector and it is selected as the study topic for 2017 fall term’s Corporate Project. Students are required to provide an AI solution in executive recruitment to help Barons & Company, an international executive search firm, gain competitive advantages for business growth. HARMAN, a Samsung company and IBM Global Business Services (IBM GBS) are other two company sponsors who provide mentors and various resources.
The final presentation was held on 30 November 2018. Four teams of multi-disciplined students presented their AI solutions to judges from the company sponsors. The winning team Justin CHO, Samuel KONG, Ericson LEE, Winnie LEUNG and Arnold SHUM, designed a system to help initial CV screening and automated interview scheduling which would hugely speed up the candidate selection and interview scheduling process. It can also generate extra profit by licensing the system to other companies.
Barons & Company and IBM GBS offered students internship opportunities to reward their excellent performances and let them get a real taste of working life.
