Back to the RTHK station today for recording another episode of New Management Thinking 管理新思維. Found a classical radio in 1950 there powered by Vaccum Tube. Oh, WOW! That actually made me think about my childhood with my whole family around a radio like this. It was as advanced and luxurious as what we have a 8k TV today. More importantly, a much more warmth and intimacy with my family back then. What a memory! Transforming a city from an old model to a smart city is like improving from a vintage radio to a 8K TV. Let’s talk about Smart City this time and why every citizen in Hong Kong should care about it. Grateful to have Thomson Lai, the Asia Digital Head of AECOM, as my guest for another fruitful episode in the RTHK’s New Management Thinking 管理新思維. #AECOM is one of key contributors in planning and building our city of Hong Kong in the last 60+ years. Received a book from Thomson called “Hong Kong Created Together”. Lots of Hong Kong’s history from nobody to one of the top cities with world-class infrastructure. Thanks the contribution from Thomson and his AECOM 艾奕康 colleagues. We started talking about what a smart city is. Then we discussed what Hong Kong has been doing in the journey of becoming a smart city, how other leading cities are doing, what key stakeholders are in a smart city and how they are empowering our city as a smart city. Certainly we talked about how emerging #technologies and #data are impacting smart cities. Very interesting. You don’t want to miss it. Really appreciate Thomson’s sharing and my RTHK partner Phoebe. My key takeaways are: 1. Citizen centricity 2. Innovation and entrepreneurship 3. Pan-city digital infrastructure If you would like to learn more from Thomson on Smart City now and the future, please tune in RTHK1 on Jun 19 at 2pm. https://lnkd.in/f-X8RaN For previous episodes of the programme, please visit here. https://lnkd.in/dWRkD_x7 #SmartCity #DigitalCity #RTHK #RTHK1 #FM94 #NewManagementThinking #管理新思維 #CUHK #CitizenJourney #MomentsOfLife #Data #BIM #DigitalTwins #AI #IOT #5G #MetaVerse #VR #Innovation #Entrepreneurship #Startups
