推動政府改善開放數據政策

政府近日發表開放數據計劃,規定部門需要用以機器可讀格式發放數據,及首次編制明確的公開數據計劃,對於促進智慧城市發展和數碼經濟屬正面發展,尤其對於使用數據的研究人員、公司和開發者是重要的一步。然而,政府除追求數據集的數目,亦應加強重視質素、更新頻率和可用性,訂立更全面的績效指標(KPI),我會繼續推動香港的開放數據發展追上其他先進地區例如台灣、英國、美國等。(閱讀全文

從共享單車看網約車的未來

去年中,政府推出以業界自律為本的《無樁式自助單車租賃業務守則》。對於受社區爭議的共享單車,政府能夠主動與持份者商討出規管的原則和指引,幫助營運者在符合營運及安全規定的情況下恰當地營運。這種持平的處理方式,為何不能同樣地套用到處理的士業和網約車之間的爭議?(閱讀全文

 

開放政府數據仍須努力

經過多年推動開放數據運動,各地政府都不約而同地朝數據FAIR的目標進發,即是容易尋找(Findable)、容易取用(Accessible)、可互通性(Interoperable)和可用性(Reusable)。香港政府經過幾年後,終於落實開放數據政策遲來的第一步。在外國開放數據運動正朝什方向發展?香港如何可借鑑其他地區的經驗,令投放到開放數據工作的資源產生最大的效益?(閱讀全文

 

創科資助計劃應以用戶為先

香港政府致力推動創新科技發展,設立多項創科基金,資助科研機構聘請人才及中小企使用科技方案以提升生產力。創新及科技局轄下創新科技署管理的企業支援計劃、科技券以及博士專才庫一直得到業界的高度關注。眾多協助創科企業、中小企和初創的資助基金能否切實幫助業界?各項計劃可以怎樣改善,令運作更有效率?(閱讀全文

Policy recommendations for the 2019/20 Budget

I met with the Financial Secretary Mr Paul Chan last week with other Professionals Guild members to submit views and policy recommendations on the upcoming Budget. This year, my proposal included 71 policy suggestions which amounted to around HKD$8 billion, out of which HKD$4 billion was specifically to address the shortage of tech talents and digital skill gap in Hong Kong.

Pushing for a more  open data quality and accountability

The government recently released the latest initiatives on open data, including to release data in machine-readable formats commonly used by the industry and also publish annual open data plans for all bureaux and departments. I regard the new policy as a positive contribution to our development in Smart City and digital economy, and bolster the growth of the digital economy. Yet, the government should place more emphasis on data quality, keep the datasets as up-to-date as possible, making them easier to use, and to set out a more comprehensive KPI to catch up with other advanced economies that have made significant progress on open data, such as Taiwan, the UK and US.

From bike sharing to ride sharing: Similar regulation should apply

The government issued the Code of Practice for Automated Dockless Bicycle Rental Services last fall and signed the Memorandum of Understanding on the Operation of Automated Dockless Bicycle Rental Services with four automated bicycle rental operators. While actions are taken to allow bike sharing to operate, ride sharing is however facing a different fate.
 

The Government needs to step up the efforts in open data

The open data movement has evolved in many states and cities, from increasing transparency, now governments are moving into the FAIR direction, meaning data should be made findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. As a latecomer, the recent open data initiative of the Hong Kong government is a step forward. How can Hong Kong learn from the experiences of other cities to foster the open data development and formulate better open data policies?
 

Gov’t I&T subsidy programmes should streamline application process

In a bid to develop innovation and technology, the government has set out a series of subsidy programmes and fundings for the hiring of IT workers and adoption of technology. Are the government programmes which aim to benefit tech companies, SMEs and start-ups useful? What are the insights in applying for the Technology Voucher Programme, Enterprise Support Scheme and Postdoctoral Hub Programme?
