Experts shared their views on the Enterprise Adoption and Business Models of #OpenData and #OpenSources in #HKPC Hong Kong Productivity Council 1.5 months ago. If you have missed it, please watch and review it here on YouTube: https://lnkd.in/fnVsie4
In the capacity as the Chairman of #OpenCertHub, I shared my view in the panel discussion on democratizing #DataLiteracy to everyone to fuel the growth of #DigitalEconomy. #Gartner created the term #BigData 2 decades ago and Big Data has further stormed the world since then. In the decade of 2020, we will see their vision on Data Literacy as a language for everyone in Digital Economy to become reality.
Apart from #DataScientist, as Gartner took #DataEconomy further, we need all business leaders and professionals to be #CitizenDataScientist. #AI and Big Data Open Sources tools will accelerate this. If you are interested in this topic, you can watch my session on the video (from 3:45 to 12:12).
I also had a previous post on the event organized by HKPC https://lnkd.in/fQHkiW8
#OpenData #OpenSource experts and 300+ audiences had a very fruitful forum today in #HKPC. #HKSAR #OGCIO Victor Lam JP shared what our government has been doing to transform Hong Kong to be a #SmartCity & a #DataEconomy. Dr. Bernard Chan JP, Under Secretary for Commerce & Development, and many government leaders & officials have joined the forum. Mr. Stephen Wong, HK Privacy Commissioner, also shared his view on how to protect our data privacy in Data Economy.
Appreciate #HKPC Edmond Lai Just Tang (Justine) and their teammates to organize a great platform for all of us to share & learn from each other. #AWS #OpenCertHub #CIOConnect #HKU #CUHK #SCC #HKCOTA #OpenSourceHK #HKSTP #Cyberport and many others were there to share and support the open data and open sources community in HK. Thank you all.
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
#OGCIO #PCPD industry practitioners & researchers will share their experiences on open data & open sources. On behalf of #OpenCertHub, I will share the open sources talent development in HK, mainland & Asia. It is our honour to be a sponsor for the forum together with #AWS #CIOConnect. See you there.
