In the part of project design by students of WKU, Hou Dazhou, the first prize winner who participated in the summer project of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, demonstrated his research result of the summer project, “Game Experience Based on Cloud Image Classification”. The project was modeled through a convolutional neural network and optimized through continuous training, which was impressive. Furthermore, each group of students brought their wonderful topics and precentations, and received constructive suggestions from professors. It was their constant diligence in and out of class that finally converged into their brilliant academic achievements.

James Yee, a lecturer of the Department of Computer Science, served as the moderator of the event. He opened the prelude of the activity with passionate words. Professor Nasser Mustafa was invited to give a speech. He said, this event is of great significance and will be a milestone start for both students and the college. In addition, graduates from Computer Department sent their sincere blessings from all over the world through the video.
