Structure: 7.5 Content: 7.5 I would pick the Speech X point as the story lead as it is a real case, and more attractive to readers!

Big data plays an increasingly important role in every area of life, so many researchers focused on machine learning in order to help address problems of the needy and improve human quality of life, said by an engineering professor.

“In the digital age, the use of digital and Big Data is very important, which is going to make the world a better place,” said Dr. Helen Meng, the Professor of the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management of the Hong Kong Chinese University (CUHK).

Meng was Patrick Huen Wing Ming Professor of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management at the CUHK. She has been the Founding Director of the CUHK Ministry of Education-Microsoft Key Laboratory for Human-Centric Computing and Interface Technologies since 2005. She has won numerous awards on the scientific research aspects.

Meng said in order to further improve the quality of life, she and her research team spent a lot of time trying to apply and analyze big data.

They found out that it was common that Hong Kong people could not pronounce English accurately regardless of whether it was a consonant.

“If they mispronounce English, it may put them at a distinct disadvantage in the highly competitive market, so we took advantage of machine learning to invent an application called “Speech X”,” said Meng at a conference at Shue Yan University.

“With the aid of Speech X, people could make practices and do reading comprehensions to brush up on their language skills,” said Meng.

Besides this, Meng and her team discovered that traditional communication books were rather boring and complicated. Therefore, they invented electronic communication books.

“There is personalized content and different pronunciation systems in eBooks so users may find them more convenient,” said Meng.

eBooks could cover around 20 languages at this moment and understand what users said, she added.

However, some people were questioning artificial intelligence(AI) would destroy human beings on one day.

“We could control the development of artificial intelligence so this is not a problem,” said Meng.

Big data is an umbrella term that encompasses all data, from financial transactions to DNA. It is a collection of structured and unstructured information. Big data is useless on its own, but when effectively mined it can lead to powerful outcomes. And Meng and her team derived value from big data.
