 At the 24th System Integration Division Conference of the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SI2023) held in Niigata, Japan, from December 14 (Thu.) to 16 (Sat.), 2023, a research group of Mr. Bong Tze Yaw, a first-year master course student of Computer Science and Engineering Course (his supervisor: Professor Hiromitsu Nishizaki) received the Best Presentation Award at the SI2023 (Academic year is as of March 2024).
 This award is given to a particularly outstanding presentation among those who have presented their research.
 The title of the award-winning presentation was “Suspicious Sound Detection System Operated by a Small Microcomputer for Fruit Theft Alert Device.” In this research, considering that it is difficult to secure a power supply in an orchard, they worked on the development of an alert device that operates on a small microcontroller and detects suspicious sounds by machine learning from the sounds collected by a microphone. They have succeeded in developing a lightweight and highly accurate model that can operate on a microcontroller, which has limited memory and computing power.
 Mr. Bong said, “I was surprised to receive the award although I have been studying Japanese for less than two years and my presentation was in poor Japanese. I will continue to devote myself to my research, provide farmers with an inexpensive, safe, and secure AI security system, and make further efforts to contribute to the agriculture industry in Yamanashi Prefecture.”
