About HKU AI for Smart Robotics Team

Inspired by the remarkable dexterity of animals in nature and the large language models (LLM), the HKU AI for Smart Robotics team is committed to creating an intelligent robot system. Through collaborative work on real-world projects, we continuously accumulate valuable hands-on experience in the field of robotics. Our recent participation in the ICRA’s Robot Challenge, where we achieved third place in the manual category, standing alongside esteemed institutions such as MIT and CMU.

Currently, we are actively seeking like-minded Engineering undergraduates to join our team and contribute to our ambitious goals. If you share our passion and vision, we invite you to become a part of our dynamic team.
