#TECH in #China becomes a hot topic in the West these days. I have conducted an online class on “Emerging TECH in China” to the fellow executive students from one of the top universities in Europe, the #ImperialCollege Imperial College London. It is a part of the one week program of #CUHK The Chinese University of Hong Kong to the Imperial College Business School in #London.

I talked about the Tech landscape, the #startup #ecosystem and #CorporateInnovation in China. I covered hot topics like the foreign market and investment strategy, self-reliance capabilities, #5G#AI#Semiconductors, Corporate #intrapreneurship, talents, #GreaterBayArea#HangSengTechIndex, tech giants returning from #Nasdaq to Hong Kong and Shanghai #StockExchanges, etc.

I used a number of cases like #Baidu#Alibaba#Tencent#ByteDance#TikTok#AntFinancial#SenseTime#PingAn#Haier#Huawei#BYD#XiaopengMotors#Hema#Xiaomi#Qihoo360#SequoiaCapital#IDGCapital#MatrixPartners as examples to show the strength and potential risks of China Tech.

The Imperial College’s students showed great interest on this topic, were engaged well and asked lots of sensible questions. I also learned a lot from their views and feedbacks as well. Thank you so much for their active participation.

The world’s top 5 companies are #Platform in terms of Market Cap. They are #Microsoft, #Apple, #Amazon, #Alphabet, #Facebook, not the traditional leaders. Successful unicorns are mainly platforms like #Uber, #Airbnb I have designed a 2 days Platform Strategy & Breakthrough training program for executives to learn & unlock the potentials of platform business models for their companies. The training was done last week. The participants were from #FinancialServices, #Retail, #Telecom. We have discussed a few inspirational cases #Airbnb, #ZBJ, #XFire, #Qihoo, #Dianrong, #Quicken, #Adobe, #Nike, #Hema, etc. The participants learned about the best industry practices of platform like #NetworkEffect, #ChickenAndEgg, #Multihoming, #Disintermediation, #Monetization #Governance, etc. I have also invited Norman Tam from #Tencent & Samuel C.H. Wan from #Stockviva to share their wisdom to design, run, monetize, govern their platforms. It was very useful. To thank them & my students for a fruitful two days, everyone received my book #數碼力大提升 with my autograph. This course is a part of the #DigitalLeadershipSeries for Executive Program that I designed for #CUHK. Other courses include #AI, #Blockchain, #CorporateInnovation, #Entrepreneurship, etc. More here. https://lnkd.in/gZBZmjp

Thanks for Edmund Lee and his teammates at #HKDC Hong Kong Design Centre to organize this year’s #KODW Knowledge of Design Week with theme on Designing Digital Future. It is a hybrid of virtual and physical conference with renowed #design and #digital experts around the globe as speakers.

Edmund’s team really gave us an excellent example of what the HK Design Centre always empowers us i.e. #CustomerCentricity. I can feel the details and processes that his team has been putting together to run this conference and helping every speaker and panelist in such a difficult period under Covid-19. Well done and appreciate it, team.

My discussion with Romeo Durscher from #DJI was very fruitful. One of the key takeaways for me is how his company connects many experts in #Drone#AI#MachineLearning and #BigData around the world through #Crowdsourcing and #SharingEconomy to build innovative models, technologies and applications to solve lots of problems in natural disasters, safety, health, etc.

For all #innovators and #entrepreneurs, while we may make money from our innovations, it is more important how we can make use of technologies to save lives and do social good. Great lesson today. Thanks Romeo.

The Annual Knowledge of Design Week #KODW will be live next week (Aug 26 to Aug 29). The annual event has been one of the best conferences in Hong Kong to learn #innovation and #design from experts worldwide. The theme this year is #DesigningDigitalFutures.

As a digital advocate, I am really glad to see more cross-over collaboration between the digital world and the design world. Here it is. Thanks Dr. Edmund Lee and his team at #HKDC #HongKongDesignCentre to organize such a great knowledge exchange week. You can find out more here.

How will US-China Tech Decoupling impact #MNCs and TECH #startups in #HongKong & #MainlandChina#AMCHAM has organized a panel discussion today on this hot topic. Alex Capri #HinrichFoundation Dan Wang #GavekaiDragonomics and I were the panel speakers. Thanks for Margaret Loo David Chao AMCHAM.

We talked about the impact on global supply chain, feasibility of the #TechDecoupling#semiconductor & #AI competitions, Chinese talents in the US, university collaboration, offshoring tech..

I have shared my views on how our HK startups can deal with this challenge. What did we learn from the 9 HK #unicorns?
1. Accelerate our biz to ASEAN & mainland China particularly the Greater Bay, not just HK
2. Set up an international team with leaders & staff in foreign countries
3. Look for partnership & investment from the companies in the just-born Hang Seng Internet and Information Technology Index #HSIII
4. Focus more on business model innovation as we have the market scale with lots of pain points
5. Speed up #DeepTech R&D with universities in HK and funding from the mainland

It is challenging time for our startups for sure. #Cyberport#HKSTP & many ecosystem stakeholders are offering programs and fundings to our startups to overcome this challenging time. We shall overcome.

“Can traditional enterprises stay competitive in the Age of AI?” & “Can we stay ahead of the curve in the Age of AI?”. These are the two key questions that today’s business leaders, executives & professionals in traditional & even technology companies are asking themselves.

My #CUHK #BusinessSchool #APIB teammates & I have put together a 2 days executive education program “The Power Duo of AI and Big Data”. It aims to answer the 2 key questions above. Find out more here.

The format of the program is a combination of lectures, case studies, group discussion, demo and hands-on, fireside chats with top business executives and AI leaders from corporates, #startups & #SMEs.

“Keep #Learning” or “#Reskilling” is one of the smartest ways to spend our time under the #Covid19. Good news is that this program is supported by the HK government #RTTP scheme. Participants may apply for the funding support & will pay only 1/3 of the fee.

The schedule is set on Aug 19 and 20, 2020. Hopefully it can be delivered in our campus classroom but it is also ready for a hybrid mode of campus and online Zoom. See you there.

#AI #BigData #DigitalTransformation

Just completed teaching our #CUHK #MBA AI and Machine Learning Applications in #FinancialServices course tonight. I was impressed by our students’ final project presentations. The theme was how financial services incumbents or FinTech start-ups made use of AI and ML. Our students chose #Citi#HangSengBank#JD#SenseTime and #WeChat for their group projects. Well done, teams.

Special thank to Professor Kalok Chan to bring me this great opportunity to teach this program.

We have studied not just AI #technologies but also #BusinessModel and #Innovation of leaders like #Tencent #DBS #HSBC #MasterCard #KristalAI #Lemonade #Wealthfront #LendingClub #WeLab #Cuvva #CCB #PingAn #AntFinancial and more.

We have done this course twice already. Students of last cohort were great as well.
