OpenSource is the core of Digital Economy. Top tech giants in the East and the West are all leveraging on open sources to innovate effectively together with their Lean Startup and Agile practices. Almost all key apps on internet and mobile, such as Google, LinkedIn, Airbnb, Alibaba, etc., that we are using every day are based on open sources. It stimulates and empowers Co-Creation in not just the startup world but gradually the Corporate Innovation world.
Join the upcoming Hong Kong Open Source Conference HKOSCon2020 HKOSCon on Jun 12 and 13 at Cyberport. Experts and users of open sources will share their experience. Not just techies will find it useful, business leaders and professionals will also find it valuable for their Digital Transformation and Innovation.
On the capacity as the Chairman of OpenCertHub, I will share how open source technologies democratize Data Literacy to everyone which is badly needed in Data Economy.

As OpenCertHub Chairman, I shared my view on talents requirement in Data Economy and how enterprises & SMEs should reskill their colleagues to be AI & BigData ready. Empowering business & functional leaders & executives to be CitizenDataScientist is the key to success in the inevitable AI Era.
My final thought shared was that Open Sources & Open Data, in fact, bring OpenInnovation & CoCreation mindset to traditional companies to stay relevant & competitive in the DigitalEra.
OpenData & OpenSource are two critical engines to empower collaboration among technology giants, startups, citizens, governments & universities in the DigitalEconomy. In the AI & BigData space, open data and open source technologies have proven to be efficient & cost-effective in getting big data stored, analysed & visualised. Open source data & open source products are no longer as risky as they used to be, so more companies are adapting & implementing leading open data tools like #Apache’s #ASF’s Hadoop, #Kafka and #R.
Open source tools are also globally democratized to the mass from tech giants to startups, enterprises to SMEs & experts to laymen. Where is Hong Kong now? Here is a chance to learn from all the key stakeholders in the Open Sources Economy. HKPC HKSTP Cyberport HKU has co-organized an Open Data & Open Sources Forum on Oct 29. Thanks Edmond Lai and his teammates HKPC to organize it. Registration https://lnkd.in/fXAfJc2 & agenda https://lnkd.in/fkzTC6i
