Website: http://smedia.ust.hk/

The HKUST-NIE Social Media Lab established by Prof. James She of the ECE Department is Asia’s first lab of its kind. Its unconventional focus concentrates on the research and design of next-generation social media systems, networks and applications in emerging cyber-physical societies, and Internet of Things environments. The lab aims to collect data to help business and advertising, and develop technology to “bring the digital” into our daily lives.
