As a member of the GS1 HK’s IoT Industry Advisor Council, I am glad to join the 16th Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao IoT Technology Application Summit co-organised by GS1 HK today in 3 locations, mainland, Hong Kong and #Macau, simultaneously.

Appreciate the effort from Anna LinCorinna FungJulian Sin#GS1HK, Kingsley Wong #OGCIOIvan Lam#ASTRI, 龍勝當 #澳門電腦學會,and certainly counterparts in Guangdong. Glad to see many industry experts there as well Andrew Lingwilson chongVincent SoIr Dr Venus LunHarman NgKinsen LeeBryan Peng(彭文俊)Alex Chung 鍾孝揚 and many others.

Great to see the collaboration across 3 regions on IoT applications on various industries. To make our Greater Bay Area or GBA work, we need smart money flow (FinTech and RegTech), smart logistics flow (AIOT) and certainly smart information flow (AI and Big Data). All these flows have to be protected by CyberSecurity and Blockchain.

Thanks for Anna’s leadership and her GS1HK team effort. Look forward to having more collaboration in these areas and contributing more in this alliance across the #GreaterBayArea#GBA in 2022 and beyond.

Another inspirational episode of “Toa Sir Data Talk” or in Chinese “Toa Sir 講數” with Dr. Ricky Tsui, the Director of R&D and the Head of Arup University. Before that, I have done a few episodes with very experienced experts on data from different industries and will continue to interview more. The series has been so valuable and I also learned a lot from my guests. Really appreciate their sharings.

I am grateful to have Anna Lin #GS1HK as my guest in another episode of the #ToaSirDataTalk #ToaSir講數 series. Anna has been with #GS1 for 30 years and brought standards and rich experience to the #SupplyChain and #Retail industries in Hong Kong and the region.

We talked about how these industries have been making use of #data in the past 3 decades and the future decade. GS1 plays a vital role in #GlobalTrade#eCommerce and #O2O business. 6 billion GS1 #Barcodes scanned global daily. Data captured in these processes are very useful and powerful.

Anna pointed out that, from the beginning till now, #Digitization was important so everything could be easily managed and tracked in an effective and efficient ways. With processes and standards in place by using technologies like #RFID#IOT, the next important key step is #DataIntelligence. That is how to make good use of the captured data in our digitization phases to enhance our business, create values for customers and generate innovative business models.

What’s next? #SmartKiosk#AIOT#2DBarCode and more will further integrate data from supply chain and retail. Data analytics are the key. GS1 HK and #OpenCertHub shared the same vision. GS1 believes that a standardized barcode and further generation of the standard is the global language of business while OpenCertHub believes that data is the next business language apart from English and your local language.

Both organizations joined hands to launch a series of #BigData certification training to all levels of employees to strengthen their #DataLiteracy so that they unlock the value and power of the data generated in the supply chain and retail. We aim to #reskill and #upskill today’s leaders and workforce with the ability to analyze, communicate and argue with, storytelling about data, and most importantly making decision and taking actions based on data.

Thanks both #GS1HK and #OCH teams. Stay tuned on how to access my “Toa Sir Data talk” with Anna and other episodes in the series.

No one enjoyed queuing before the Covid19 but I felt great to be physically on a long queue to get into the #GS1 Hong Kong Summit today at #HKCEC https://lnkd.in/gpE26UJ. Over 1,500 offline & online participants joined the event today. A few inspirations that I would like to share with you.

Ricky Wong has been innovative in his career. He just had another one which is a great news to our #BigData industry – his #OpenDataBank initiative. It opens up the data from his #HKTVMall to the public through #API. External companies can innovate better customer experience by connecting data with his. It also sets a great role model to encourage other companies to open up their data for customers & social good as well. https://lnkd.in/gJy4xsk

Randy Lai #Mcdonald said that engaging not only with external but also internal customers. Her colleagues are young & digital natives. Making use of apps to deliver ongoing training to them is effective. Social connection & being a part of it,, not being an outsider is a great view too.

Thanks Kelvin Leung Anna Lin Mignone Cheng #GS1HK to make the offline show shine again. The good news is that I will physically queue up for the 6th Cloud Forum https://www.cloudforum.hk/ tomorrow in the same venue organized by Catherine Chan #Kornerstone.

Congratulations toGS1 Hong Kong for its 30th Anniversary.
