Edward Chor Kin Hung

Edward was born and raised in Hong Kong, and immigrated to Canada in 1992, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and Certificate in Liberal Arts at Simon Fraser University. After his return to Hong Kong in 1997, he was in different positions in the advertising, marketing, and e-commerce industries. In 2002 he decided to pursue an academic career, and therefore started his master's degree at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), where he got a chance to study under Dr. Clifford Choy and Dr. Robert Ellis-Geiger. In 2004 he started his teaching career as a part-time Visiting Lecturer at PolyU. Then he became a full-time Lecturer at Caritas Bianchi College of Careers and mentor for the 2004 Mentorship Program of PolyU guiding year 1 students studying Visual Communications at School of Design. Now he is a Visiting Lecturer at the Department of Multimedia and Animation, School of InfoComm Technology, Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP), Singapore, in charge of various multimedia subjects. His research record includes his current SGD 98K research project namely “Interactive Game/Sound Environment Independent of Physical Controller: The Use of Body Movements for Game Play” at NP, and his contribution to the successful HKD3.7M ITF application titled “Automatic Music Arrangement System: Games, Film, and Interactive Applications” at PolyU during his master study.

About the Research
Conceptual design theories with creative models such as C-K design theory and Boden’s theory of computational creativity have been studied by different scholars for more than a decade but are still underused in our society. In this research study, a sub-conceptual design theory with exploratory and transformational creativity, namely Conceptual Recombination is proposed to assist these theories in unveiling their potentiality for practical use in our daily lives. Moreover, it also tackles a sub-problem in this research study regarding the lack of a reliable mechanism of generating ET-creativity in a single-user Creativity Support Tool that takes in a user’s unfinished creative work and produces representational and creative system outputs with computational creativity as continuations to the user input. In other words, this research study is to reveal the potential usages of conceptual design theories with creative models through a single-user CST with ET-creativity in the domain of creative works.
