“The Power Duo of AI and Big Data” is one of my favorite courses in our #CUHK Digital Leadership Series for Executives. In the last 2 days, I have delivered this class to the #ChiyuBank #集友銀行 in Hong Kong & Xiamen. Thanks for Michael Chan, Executive Director of the Chiyu Bank, to kickoff the class & his support.
I have shared my #BigData & #AI experience from #MachineLearning #Algorithms #DataLiteracy concepts to innovative applications in #FinancialServices #FinTech & #ResponsibleAI. Apart from lectures, case studies & group discussions, I have invited 2 AI experts to share their experience. My heartfelt thanks to my guest speakers Calvin Cheng, CFA from Wizpresso & Daniel Ling from OneConnect Financial Technology.
I encouraged more interaction from my students in the class. The most engaged students were given a copy of my book #數碼力大提升 with my signature and personalized message. Congratulations to 3 winners today.
Grateful that more and more enterprises and their executives are taking the courses in our #DigitalLeadershipSeries for executives to empower & #reskill themselves to be competitive & relevant in the #DigitalEconomy.

You may have heard #data is the oil, electricity or soil of the enterprises in the digital economy. Data is the most valuable resource according to the #Economists. However, how many of today’s traditional enterprises are treating it seriously?
#Esquel, a leading Hong Kong-based textile & apparel manufacturer, has set a great example to take data seriously. I was invited by Esquel Group to share my experience on big data with their employees across all departments. It is a workshop to empower their colleagues to prepare for an internal #hackathon.
Margie Yang, Esquel Group’s Chairman, aims to encourage their employees across the company to make use of data to create values for their company, customers & partners. Her vision aligns well with my belief – that is to democratize the power of #bigdata to everyone in the company. Really appreciate her leadership and set an example on what a data-driven enterprise is and should be.
Thanks for my mentor & friend Daniel Lai to invite me to share my experience. Appreciate Esquel colleagues’ active participation and passion to learn. Thanks for Bessie Chong and her team for their excellent arrangement.
Grateful to be one of the judges for their hackathon with Charleston Sin and look forward to see more data innovation.
#Covid19 cannot slow down HK people to keep flourishing & moving forward. I was engaged in 6 amazing events organized by key HK partners in 1 single week. #Accounting #HR #FinTech #OpenSource #BIGDATA #EMBA. What a way to start 2021!
Really pleased to see healthy & happy friends online & f2f. Appreciate the efforts & passion of the organizers to make these happened. Thank you & keep it going. That is #HongKongSpirit, that is us.
Congratulate to all the awardees & thank to the forum participants.

#BillGates said, “Banking is necessary, banks are not”. Have we thought about “Accounting is necessary, accountants are not”?
#Accounting, #Auditing and #Finance professionals are used to have a peace of mind in earning secured income and having great prosperity. However, another #NewNORMAL has come to them in this decade and they have to respond well to keep flourishing for their career.
While these professions are still very important to us, many of them are in high risks of losing their jobs to #AI and #BigData in this decade.
According to PWC, 30% of our current jobs will be automated by AI by 2030. Accounting and Finance is ranked as the top tier of the list. How should the professionals and students in the profession prepare themselves for this tsunami? The answer is #DataLiteracy.
On behalf of #OpenCertHub, I will share our view on this hot topic together with #EY and #Kornerstone in Shanghai on Jan 14, 2021. Thanks to the support from Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants. If you are interested, just scan the QR code below or contact #HKiCPA #HongKong or #Shanghai for more information.

Glad to meet 2 good friends of mine Andrew and Greg in #SAP. Met both of them for years since the good old days of #BI and #DataWarehousing.
Wow.. SAP has a brand new office with a nice open innovation environment to empower internal and external collaboration. I particularly like the workbench facing the Hong Kong Jockey Club #HKJC in #HappyValley.
It is not just an image packaging but a necessity these days to create values for a wide range of their clients. Most of the top companies are using SAP enterprise software. Like all other industry leaders, SAP also faces new challenges from a new wave of tech giants like Google, Amazon, Alibaba as well as thousands of #unicorns. Also, attracting & retaining young talents are very critical for today’s success. On one hand, SAP keeps building on their strength with deep domain knowledge & #ERP technologies; on the other hand, an #OpenInnovation strategy is undergoing to cope with new competitions & talents acquisition. Great and positive change!
Really pleased to see my two good friends today, a retail and supply chain expert Andrew Ling and a #AI and #BigData expert Greg Wong. Also met new friends in SAP Sandy Yu and Helen Lam. Let’s collaborate to contribute more to the #innovation and #technology industry in Hong Kong.
In today’s #DigitalEconomy, executives & professionals have a sense of urgency to master “The Power Duo of AI & Big Data”. In the last 2 days, I delivered an executive class on this. I am so grateful to have a class of highly-engaged students across industries. We had fruitful discussion on the opportunities & challenges of #AI & #BigData. Thanks to my fellow students.
My career journey has been highly related to data from my 1st job in #SiliconValley #Informix #RDBMS to later #BI, #DW #BigData & #AI. My key takeaway from this journey is not just technology but also how to make use of data to create value for our customers & capture value for our companies.
The students learned about applications & technologies of AI, #MachineLearning & Big Data through cases #Airbnb, #StitchFix #Lemonade #SquirrelAI #Linkedin #Uber #MasterCard.
Big thanks to Jade Tin Hei Lee from #ChowTaiFook and Calvin Cheng, CFA from #Wizpresso to share their experience with our students from a traditional company and a startup perspective respectively.
The Power Duo of AI & Big Data is a module of #CUHK #Digital #Leadership Series Program. #Platform #Strategy is another module. We launched it a few weeks ago as well.
The presentation ceremony of the 2019 #IFTA #FinTech Awards was successfully held yesterday. Congrats to all the winners. In this challenging year under Covid-19, our jury team led by Charleston Sin #MIT #InnovationNode had overcome all the challenges and carefully selected the stars of the stars as the winners 3 months ago.
In particular, I would like to congratulate the winners of my favorite areas #AI and #BigData. Really proud of #BIBO #Convoy #FreightAmigo #Lufax #Wizpresso #YOOV. You all did well in making use of data to empower financial services and their customers. Calvin Cheng, CFA Ka-Ming Lee Alex Szeto Wong Philip.
Also met good friends and FinTech experts there such as ALEX Chan and his #Forms teammates, Daniel Ling and his #OneConnect teammates, Raymond Wing Fung Chan, CFT, #Cyberport and #HKSTP FinTech teammates, and many others. Congrats to them as well to win great awards and recognition from IFTA.
Thanks to 龐寶林 Wilson Kwok FCPA, CA, FHKSA, MA(HONS), ATIHK, FHKFA, CFP Darron Sun leadership in organizing this award.
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.
Romeo Durscher, Senior Director of Public Safety Integration at #DJI, will have a talk on the topic “AI and Drones on the Frontline: Can Big Data Save Us?”
Then, I will have a fireside chat with Romeo around his theme as well as the innovations and applications of #AI #BigData #Drone during and post Covid-19. Find out more here.
It is a challenging time for any industry leaders in the #DigitalAge when they are competing with new digital leaders instead of traditional rivals.
How to transform a 90 years old company to sustain their industry #leadership & seize the emerging opportunities from the #DigitalEconomy was the main theme that 80+ senior managers across different regions & functions of #ChowTaiFook #Jewellery Group https://lnkd.in/eAxk8iV & I discussed through both Zoom and in person today.
Chow Tai Fook has a great #culture of #innovation in the #NewRetail industry such as award winning #TMark, #SmartTray, etc. but we all agreed that a lot more can be learned from the #techgiants, #unicorns #startups and other industry #innovators. We explored several potential #businessmodels that could bring in asset-light businesses driven by #platform and #bigdata to the group. We also talked about the best practices of corporate #intrapreneurship such as #LeanStartup, #OpenInnovation, etc.
Appreciate that the participants actively engaged & shared their views. We did have a fruitful discussion. I learned a lot from all of them as well. Thanks for the leadership from MD Kent Wong https://lnkd.in/e2kJmHS & Bobby Liu Quentin Wong Flora Ho Jessica Tam Vicky Chiu & all who participated today.
