 香港人被監控有多嚴重?

政府各部門利用人臉及影像識別技術的詳情

早前有警員登上一輛公共巴士搜查乘客的物品時,以高清數碼攝錄機近距離攝錄乘客容貌。我近期於立法會內,要求政府提交各政府部門及公營機構使用人臉及影像識別技術的詳情。(閱讀全文)

關注警方使用人臉識別系統

就有傳媒報導警方數年前購入具人臉識別功能的系統,有市民憂慮被過度監控,我在立法會內提出質詢,要求保障市民包括私隱在內的人權。(閱讀全文)

捍衛言論自由 阻擋網絡文字獄

香港互聯網協會本月中入稟覆核推翻律政司司長有關禁制網絡言論的臨時禁制令。案件於11月15日審理,雖然法庭裁定臨時禁制令繼續生效,然而法官採納香港互聯網協會的觀點,下令政府釐清及收窄臨時禁制令的範圍。
 

跟進科學園受催淚煙影響

香港中文大學近科學園的二號橋早前爆發激烈警民衝突,警方共發射二千發催淚彈。鑑於有毒二噁英可能對科學園區人士帶來嚴重健康風險,我於上週去信科學園高層要求盡快展開檢測及清洗工作,再與一眾科學園工作人士發起聯署行動。目前共有546個聯署,管理層表示已更換空調濾網,並安排第三方專業認可實驗室進行檢測工作。

關注生產力促進局內部管理不善

審計署今週連發兩份針對生促局行政管治及各項服務的審計報告,揭示生產力促進局在行政及管理顧問項目方面存在重大缺憾。我認為報告發現反映生促局的內部監察不足、必須檢討各項計劃『主要表現指標』,以及專利商品化需要改善。(閱讀全文)

民意不容扭曲 正視選民訴求

我建議可以利用科技,全面提升區議會的透明運作,讓市民未來更易監察議會及參與社區事務。我們必須好好把握今次主導17區區議會的機會,將過去建制派在各社區保皇、黑箱作業、浪費納稅人金錢、不公義作風等的惡習徹底根除,全面改革區政,實行還政於民。(閱讀全文)

 

香港成警察社會 法治受衝擊

目前香港全面進入警察社會的境況,對香港法治的衝擊已然響起警號。正如余若薇在她的文章結尾表示,法治曾經是香港的驕傲,但在一個不尊重公平、自由和民主的政府下,法治不可能繼續存在。(閱讀全文)

 

港網絡法例滯後 消費者保障未完善

香港不能以西方的方式規管科技巨頭,但不應跟隨大陸模式令科企規管制度過份嚴格,變相把一些剛萌芽、缺乏資源處理規管的小型科技公司排之於門外。(閱讀全文)

 

培育創科人才 港府須主動出擊

香港的人才培訓體系猶如多頭馬車,教育局推動資歷架構、學校的STEM教育和支援;勞工及福利局推行持續進修基金;創新及科技局集中處理科技人才相關培訓;另外亦有僱員再培訓局、職業訓練局提供不同課程。這些部門的角色和定位應該如何?培育創科人才和促進產業轉型方面的策略和目標為何?(閱讀全文)

Defending Internet freedom and free speech

In a bid to fight against the government’s move to introduce Internet shutdown and a dangerous precedent to censor online speech, the Internet Society of Hong Kong filed a civil action in court to challenge the temporary injunction which censors online speech. The case was heard on November 15. Despite the judge ruled that the injunction remains effective, he also issued restrictions on the original injunction after taking into account the legal perspectives of ISOC HK.

15 Nov – Court issued restrictions on the injunction to ban online free speech Concerns over Internet censorship remained
12 Nov –  The Internet Society Hong Kong filed legal action against government’s injunction to defend online free speech

 

Urging for inspection and cleaning to remove Dioxin threats in Science Park

The police had earlier fired over a thousand tear gas canisters at CUHK’s No. 2 Bridge. In light of the proximity and the health risks carried by the dioxin from the tear gas, I joined a group of people working in science park to launch a signature campaign, calling on the HKSTP management to undertake immediate actions for inspection and cleaning.

 

Facial and visual image recognition technologies used by the Government

I put forward a Council question to probe into the use of facial and visual image recognition technologies by various government departments and public organisations after recent incidents showing the police has collected faces of the public at close distance. (Read more)
 

Privacy protection must be in place against facial recognition technologies

It was reported that the Hong Kong Police Force acquired systems with facial recognition function several years ago, stirring up concerns that the extensive collection and use of facial images and other biometric data by government departments will make people in Hong Kong vulnerable to excessive surveillance. I questioned the government for establishing ethical standards and privacy protection against facial recognition technologies. (Read more)

 

Responding to the woes of the Hong Kong Productivity Council

The Audit Commission this week issued two reports, criticising the council for poor management and failing to achieve a set of targets over the years. Early in 2009, the Commission has already taken at length to disclose the management problems of the council and after 10 years, problems still exist. I urged the government to step up in monitoring the large amount of funds allocated for innovation and technology in recent years to ensure that taxpayers’ money is not misplaced.

2019 DC election: The people have spoken

Technology solutions should be explored to improve the transparency of the District Council. For many years, the 18 District Councils were under the control of the pro-establishment camp, leading to extravagant projects and lost of checks and balances.

 

Hong Kong’s rule of law threatened as it turns into a police state

The rule of law was once our city’s pride, but with a government that disregards justice, fairness and democracy, the rule of law is under threat.

 

How should we regulate big tech?

The way the Western countries use to rein in tech giants might not be appropriate to Hong Kong, but neither should we follow the mainland style in implementing draconian rules which will impede innovations and the growth opportunities of tech startups and SMEs.

 

No more delay to nurture local tech talents

A centralised unit within the government to coordinate the talent nurturing policies is currently absent. How should different departments position themselves and, more importantly, how do we form an integrated strategy to nurture tech talents and support industrial transformation?
