Chen Sihao (Computer Science, Year 4) has been awarded the 2021 Global Winner in the Computer Science category by The Global Undergraduate Awards. The award was granted for Sihao’s final year project – "Learning to See in the Dark – Low Light Image Enhancement".
Under the guidance of Dr Li Chongyi and Prof Loy Chen Change, Sihao explored deep learning methods to enhance images taken in poor lighting conditions. The project went through a rigorous judging process led by about 500 expert academics worldwide and eventually selected as the top performing entry in the Computer Science category. It is noteworthy that it is the first time that NTU student has become the Global Winner in the Computer Science category.
The Global Undergraduate Awards is the world’s leading undergraduate awards programme, which acknowledges top undergraduate work. Alongside Sihao, other 2021 Global Winners include undergraduate students from world’s top universities such as ETH Zurich, University College London, University of Toronto, Karolinska Institute, and several others.
As the Global Winner, Sihao is invited to attend the Global Undergraduate Summit in Dublin, Ireland in November this year. He will be attending the ceremony virtually to receive the Thomas Clarkson Gold Medal and certificate of recognition.
