CAiRS’ contributions and achievements rely on the joint efforts of our team. They use sophisticated technologies to improve the reliability and safety of products and systems and predict remaining useful lives by applying different artificial intelligence models.  CAiRS has only been in operation for just over three and a half years, the hour of receiving the awards and prizes is a shot in the arm to proof our achievements and contribution to Hong Kong and the world. We would like to thank the team at CAiRS and researchers for their technical expertise and enthusiasm for their work. We would also like to thank our collaborative partners, institutions, and organizations for giving us the opportunity to apply our work in real-time practical deployment.
