Chung (Founder and Senior Partner of InnoEdge Consulting) to be our guest speaker.  Design Thinking (DT) is very hot topic worldwide now and many innovators employ this innovative tools for focusing on customer’ unmet, hidden and potential needs. Integrating Design Thinking approaches with improvement initiatives introduced the ‘human-centered’ element into focus. This seminar aimed to introduce Design Thinking and its application in quality improvement.


Before the seminar, I introduced guest speaker, HKSQ coming activities and AGM through our website, as well as, this blog to search past events related to Design Thinking (DT). I attended different DT seminars since 2015 (See reference).


Mr. David T.W. Chung (Founder and Senior Partner of InnoEdge Consulting) was the first speaker and he had managed over 200 innovation training classes in past 5 years.  Firstly, he asked us what design thinking is and let’s discuss in short time. Some members thought it is customer focus and innovative tools.


Then Mr. David Chung explained DT is one of the most recognized innovative problem solving methods and founded by d.School of Stanford University.  It’s Innovative Human Centered Approach is the intersect among Feasibility, Viability and Desirability.  He also mentioned continuous improvement included improving quality in Products and Services, Users’ daily activities and Users’ life. 


And then he introduced almost 80 sets of Human Centered Tools. Some survey found that developing corporate innovative advantage through DT increased 211% in 2015 (Design Management Institute, 2015). 


After that Mr. David Chung briefed Harvard Business Review to promote DT in Sep 2015 and Sep 2018, respectively. Then he introduced one country using Design Thinking successfully.  It is Singapore!

用可拓學對示威者訴求分析及建議

本人在713日嘗試用科學方法「可拓學」(它是用形式化模型來研究事物拓展的可能性以及開拓創新規律與方法)來分析問題及提出可行方案以解決社會上的矛盾問題。建議己電郵給政府人士。以下主要用「可拓學」的拓展分析的發散樹來增加可行方案的數量。

() 對民陣的5大訴求
(i) 完全撤回修例(ii) 收回暴動定義(iii) 撤銷反送中抗爭者控罪(iv) 成立獨立調查委員會追究警隊濫權責任 和 (v) 立即實踐真雙普選有以下建議
1)  除了暫緩《2019年逃犯及刑事事宜相互法律協助法例(修訂)條例草案》(逃犯條例)即無期擱置 壽終正寢建議加入重啟門檻(: 市民共識 2/3 立法會議員)


2)  定義暴動範圍縮小至只用於如衝擊粗暴衝擊的抗爭者身上


3)  提出檢控抗爭者的範圍縮小衝擊粗暴衝擊的犯對年齡 <18的學生及大學生及只有輕度衝擊抗爭者寫求情信


4)  成立獨立調查委員會調查所有相關者包括警隊及抗爭者政府傳媒政治人物等等可外判外國退休大法官(如英國)用民主國家對示威衝擊的應對為基準來調查 還原整個事件調查不涉刑責, 各方得已改善


5)  至於重啟雙普選在時機上要獲得市民共識831框架及2/3立法會議員支持現在社會氣氛不適宜討論政改


()與學生公開對話
中文大學及科技大學與港大、城大、理大、浸大及香港演藝學院的學生代表,提出與林鄭會面的兩大條件,包括進行包括各界人士的公開對話,及承諾對參與近日行動的示威者不作追究。
經分析後有以下建議:
可收窄範圍到只追究粗暴衝擊的示威者. 如對話不行, 可以聆聽或給他們發表的機會.
建議與其他持份人溝通, 用關係網分析出對抗爭者(特別是學生)產生影響的人士及組織如下: 校長會、教協 & 教聯、家長會、青年會、學生會以及監測KOL平台資訊.



() 抗爭市民在「連儂牆」表達意見的建議
全港多處地方有市民設立,讓人貼上留言表達意見的「連儂牆」,但部分地區有人反對設立,出現衝突場面。
可以考慮時間空間分隔或以網上方式表達.
i)      學生 / 市民 (包括支持者) / 各界人士 發表逃犯條例引起的事宜的意見在政府指定地點 / 流動地點的連儂牆 / 社交平台地點 / 流動地點的連儂牆可變成旅遊景點.
ii)     政府設十八區虛擬連儂牆, 條件是不可有仇恨及不法言論.


希望能拋磚引玉, 以科學方法解決社會上的矛盾.

暴動 (Riot) @ 二次創作

最近香港的示威者以成暴力抗爭者(暴徒)放火非法禁固掟磚頭圍警局及宿舍塞交通等等以上已經是暴動 (Riot)連美國總統都公開說了
標少札記中解說了法律上暴動的定義
暴動的法例訂立於法例第245章《公安條例》第19:
19. 暴動
(1)如任何參與憑藉第18(1)條被定為非法集結的集結的人破壞社會安寧,該集結即屬暴動,而集結的人即屬集結暴動。
19. Riot
(1) When any person taking part in an assembly which is an unlawful assembly by virtue of section 18(1) commits a breach of the peace, the assembly is a riot and the persons assembled are riotously assembled.
控罪元素也很簡單: 非法集結和破壞社會安寧。這兩元素都有終審法院的案例。


以下是一些反對暴徒的二次創作記錄

OUHK Seminar on “Challenges in Implementation of Laboratory Management according to ISO/IEC 17025:2017”

The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) organized the seminar named "Challenges in Implementation of Laboratory Management according to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 " on 25th July 2019.  Dr. Eric Tung-Po Sze was the speaker and he introduced the different between ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ISO/IEC 17025:2005 version.  The main changes stated in the new version were risk-based thinking, greater flexibility and definition of laboratory.  Firstly, Dr. Eric Sze mentioned the use of information technology (e.g. LIMS) and new definition of Laboratory that laboratory activities included testing, calibration and “sampling, associate with subsequent testing or calibration”.


Then Dr. Sze stated the verbal forms used in the new version from strong level to weak level term and they were “Shall” > “Should” > “May” > “Can”.


And then he introduced the new version standard structure. The old one mainly separated into clause 4 – Management requirements and clause 5- Technical requirements.  The new one separated into clause 4 – General requirements, clause 5 – Structural requirements, clause 6 – Resource requirements, clause 7 – Process requirements and clause 8 – Management requirements.  


Dr. Sze use a common flow to explain the processes of laboratory.  However, some participants discussed the sequence of review of request and sampling.  “It is depended on what type of testing you performed.” Dr. Sze replied.  


After that he mentioned the alignment with ISO 9001 in management requirement and introduced the Option A (defined in ISO/IEC 17025) and Option B (in accordance with ISO 9001). 


In according to ISO 9001, your system followed the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle and defined the policy and objectives.  They should address Competence, Impartiality and Consistent Operation (e.g. intra-lab test).

We separated into six teams for discussion. 


The first team presented their summary. Mr. Bingo Wong (華南師範大學附屬中學黃秉剛) said future education was very important because of our retirement fund. He said science needed to be integrated and fusion.  Mathematics is key subject but started from data. 


Then he explained AI education based on A) Data, B) Model, C) Algorithm and D) Coding.  B&C was core.  The future AI teacher should think the combination of ABCD and we needed to enhance IT education.


The second team was my team and our representative Ms. Li Qing (李青, 北京第十二中學信息技術).  We summarized AI into Theory and Practice. Sometimes, they were linked together and we had try to separate hardware and software but it always combined in the course.  Therefore, we used AI+X.

Day 2 (20190720): Practical Part
Dr. Wu di (武迪, 中國人民大學附屬中學高級教師) was the first speaker and she would share three topics in her AI courses and the first one was “Computing thinking of the ranking problem in website” and the second case was “Algorithm principles of Back Hole image”, as well as, the last case was “Remove haze from the photo”.  


Dr. Wu introduced the searching engineer of the first case such as QS World University Rankings, High level examination rankings, web page rankings, etc.  She also introduced how to analyze the problem from specific to abstract using Picasso drawing as example to explain how to extract the characteristic.


The second case was Back Hole which issued in April 2019 but the image was in 2017.  They used 2 years to calculate and integrate the image. It needed to transfer the radiation to visual range for human eyes.  Some difficulties were pointed out such as lack of integrity data and noise.
