Top Honor of CCF BDCI Award recognizes Engineering Expertise in Data Science and Algorithm Design
CITIC Telecom CPC attained the highest honor at the CCF BDCI Award 2021, with the company’s Data Science team formed by 5 data science experts, winning the cybersecurity competition Championship in the design of “Classification of Malware Families based on Artificial Intelligence” by winning against 724 teams from top-tier universities, leading industry enterprises and research institutions. In this competition, the CITIC Telecom CPC team was given a large set of malware ASM (ASCII) and PE (Binary) data which was highly unstructured, and heavily codified with encryption and random insertions. The team was able to achieve the most stable, accurate and fastest result amongst all competitors. It leveraged its strong ICT background and AI expertise, and deployed innovative AI algorithms and computer vision models to develop a novel approach, transforming the complex datasets into graphic visualizations, ultimately to successfully tackle this extreme technical challenge. The judges expressed their admiration for the team’s high caliber and the breakthrough decision to innovate a new AI approach in cybersecurity detection using data algorithms instead of cybersecurity domain knowledge.
“This award marks industry appreciation of our professional team’s capabilities to foster AI-led innovations and deliver outstanding performance,” said Mr. Ivan Lee, Vice President of ITS & Data Science of CITIC Telecom CPC. “The excellent result by our data science team demonstrated CITIC Telecom CPC’s strength in innovative thinking and algorithm calculations. The algorithm models featured a fusion of various sophisticated algorithms (such as AE, LGB, and others), deep learning and weakly supervised learning mechanisms to accurately classify high-dimensional data. In fact, we are already further enhancing our innovative enterprise solutions with these breakthrough techniques, thus strengthening the analysis of security logs, detection of malware and malicious behaviour.”
Crowned Innovation Awards to manifest AI-enabled Innovation Capability
The two other awards, from Enterprise Asia and the CAHK, recognize CITIC Telecom CPC’s efforts in industry innovation, providing dedicated solutions to create unprecedented value, and enabling exceptional experience across a spectrum of industries.
CITIC Telecom CPC’s revolutionary Augmented Reality (AR) solution, DataHOUSETM AR Remote Hand, won the “Service and Solutions” category in Enterprise Asia’s International Innovation Awards. The groundbreaking solution utilizes innovative AR glasses with AR video conferencing to provide datacenter field engineers with a heads-up display that speeds up troubleshooting and maintenance with remote visualization in real-time, boosting field service productivity by up to 50%. The award validates the ability of CITIC Telecom CPC’s award-winning solutions to support enterprise success in innovative and pragmatic ways, including facilitating remote work strategies during the pandemic using AR technology.
In turn, the CAHK STAR Awards 2021 “Best Innovation for Future Enterprise – Gold” highlights the game-changing significance of CITIC Telecom CPC’s AI-enabled Cognitive Object Recognition System (CORS), a technological foundation for Smart Industry Applications leading to real-world business values for multiple enterprise sectors. To win the CAHK STAR Awards, CITIC Telecom CPC’s dedicated innovation team built an innovative Machine Learning model using AI, Big Data analytics and Deep Learning methods to demonstrate its superiority in computer vision precision, with a system that can identify, locate and count objects in 95 milliseconds with 99% accuracy.
As CITIC Telecom CPC continues to pursue innovation, it has combined AI and AR capabilities to unlock further value. During mid-November of 2021, the company launched the 2nd phase of its AR Remote Hand solution with ASTRI. The AI-AR integrated solution is backed by a Cognitive Object Recognition System (CORS) running CITIC Telecom CPC’s breakthrough algorithm and technique to improve object mapping accuracy. Via AR glasses, users gain not only correlation analysis between different objects, but also the ability to access 2D and 3D diagrams, analytical figures, and even instant instructions for better data visualization.
