全新”智慧政府創新實驗室”推出

IT中小企和Start-up,和政府合作的機會來了!過去幾年我多次建議政府善用網上平台協助配對部門的服務需求和ICT業界供應商,創造更多商機。樂見政府採納我的建議,資科辦近日推出【智慧政府創新實驗室】,已上載30個服務需求,亦可以讓公司主動建議方案,希望大家把握機會!

關注人臉識別技術監控的使用

人臉識別監控的私隱問題受國際關注。我6月5日提出質詢,要求政府公開目前或將來有否計劃用人臉識別技術監控。雖然政府表示現時沒有部門正在使用或計劃引入,但卻未有提到日後會否採用,我會繼續密切監察,保護市民私隱。(閱讀政府回應

提高AI決策透明度

科技越來越先進,如何保障個人權利和私隱?我上月在議會內就一條私隱議案辯論提出修正案,要求政府研究參考GDPR,在私隱條例加入更多保障個人權利的條文,包括用戶有權拒絕接受用資料建立個人檔案和有權要求解釋AI演算法的原理和影響等,可惜我的修正案在建制派棄權下未能獲得通過。
 

跟進政府研究應用區塊鏈

我上週提出質詢關注政府研究應用區塊鏈技術的情況。資科辦回覆去年年底已展開一項區塊鏈試點計劃,探討應用於政府服務的適用性和效益。4個政府部門正商討共同進行試驗,預計今年年底至明年內完成。

New opportunity to offer technology solutions to HK Gov’t

For years, I have recommended setting up an online platform similar to UK’s Digital Marketplace to publish government departments’ demands for technology solutions and facilitate SMEs and startups in procurement. The government has responded and recently the Smart Government Innovation Lab is established to connect departments with the IT sector to formulate innovative measures and for the industry to pitch solutions to the government directly online.

Raising concerns over the use of facial recognition for surveillance

There is a surge of concerns over governments overseas deploying high-resolution CCTV systems with automated facial recognition technology to identify people. On June 5th, I questioned the government on its plan in using facial recognition technology which may become a serious threat to our privacy if it is not properly regulated. The government replied that no department is currently using, procuring or developing these systems but did not rule out the possibility in future. I will continue to pursue on this matter so that Hong Kong can balance the use of technology with privacy protection.
 

Transparency needed for AI blackbox

In May, there was a floor debate on privacy protection in the Legco. I tabled a motion amendment, calling on the government to make reference to the EU’s GDPR and reform the existing privacy law in Hong Kong. Users should have the right to refuse the use of their personal data in profiling by algorithms and in the automated decision-making process by AI technology. It was disappointing that the pro-establishment members abstained on my amendment and therefore it did not pass.
 

HK gov’t exploring Blockchain applications

One of my latest questions to the government was on the application of Blockchain technology. It was revealed that the OGCIO has commenced in late 2018 a pilot application of blockchain technology project to explore the applicability and benefits of adopting blockchain technology in government services. 4 departments will implement pilot projects on Blockchain technology and they are expected to be completed in end 2019 to 2020.
