Project information

Project descriptions

With a rapidly ageing population in Hong Kong, volunteer services handled by NGOs (Non-Government Organizations), which lack systematic management, are urged for improvements. This project, HINCare, proposes a volunteer service platform solution for NGOs to manage their systems better. HINCare integrates user data and provides personalized recommendations using HIN (Heterogeneous Information Network) and KG (Knowledge Graph). In particular, volunteers and the elderly are optimally matched to cater to elders’ needs. This project will contribute to Hong Kong volunteer businesses by promoting public help for the elderly. Besides, the study is a real-life application to analyze the effectiveness of various recommendation models and algorithms.
