Dinner with Kenneth and Alice family (SQI) in Hong Kong

Minda and I were happy to have dinner with Kenneth (The former chairman of Singapore Quality Institute (SQI) & Asian Network for Quality (ANQ)) and Alice family on 22nd Feb 2019. In this time, we met Kenneth’s son, daughter-in-law and grandson.

Time is flying! I remembered Kenneth and I visited Nissan Motor in 2009 during ANQ in Tokyo.  He told me his son’s dream car is a racing car (as diagram below).  But now his son used family car.  It is lucky that he hadn’t brought it before! Ha…Ha…

Visit to TusPark Hong Kong

I attended the HKQAA workshop about corporate university and training on 15th Feb 2019.  Accidentally, I passed the TusPark Hong Kong near the venue in early morning.  I had visited TusPark – Tsinghua University Science Park in Beijing on 6th Nov 2015 after the 3rd Chinese Quality Forum (CQF).  I took a photo in the main entry.


Tuspark, standing for Tsinghua University Science Park, is an international business incubator where multicultural tech startup founders were grown together.  Tuspark Hong Kong, based in HK, has a mission to facilitate the growth of the startup eco-system and to cultivate technology entrepreneurial cultures in Hong Kong.


I also took a photo in front of the TusPark Logo.


After the morning workshop, I visited TusPark again with my classmate Mr. Terence KS Wong (Course Development Director, Hong Kong Association of Staff and Workers Education and Vocational Training).  We both are HKQF ITAC committee member.  


Luckily, I met TusPark Hong Kong staff during lunch time and exchange contact information for inviting them to participate our research project (HKSQ & HKQAA) named “Feasibility Study on the Quality of Hong Kong Start-up Development for Supporting the Sustainable Business Growth”.  We met Mr. Sam Wong (General Manager, TusPark Hong Kong) and Mr. Alvin Lam (Senior Business Manager, TusPark Hong Kong).

We would make an appointment to discuss it with HKQAA members in next time.

CityU Distinguished Lecture on AI Enabled Personalized Theranotics

To enhance academic ambience and stimulate intellectual vitality, CityU invites world renowned scholars, high calibre figures of the community and social elites to deliver Distinguished Lectures on a wide range of interesting topics to the university community and members of the public.  I attended the lecture named “AI Enabled Personalized Theranotics” on 28th Jan 2019. I also had a chance to take a photo with Prof. Chih-Ming Ho for memory.


In the beginning, Prof. Jian Lu (VP (Research and Technology), CityU) introduced Prof. Chih-Ming Ho background and achievement to us.  Professor Chih-Ming Ho received Ph.D. from The Johns Hopkins University. He held the Ben Rich-Lockheed Martin Chair Professor until retired in 2016 and currently is a UCLA Distinguished Research Professor. He served as UCLA Associate Vice Chancellor for Research from 2001 to 2005.


Prof. Chih-Ming Ho (Distinguished Research Professor, University of California, Los Angeles; Member, US National Academy of Engineering; Academician, Academia Sinica) started his talk to share AI Enabled Personalized Theranostics. Firstly, he acknowledged his team in tens of collaborators’ laboratories included 50 PhD and 150 visiting scholars.  Then he explained that “Medicine is a Science of Uncertainty and an Art of Probability” and briefed the Father of Modern Medicine Sir William Osler (1849-1919). 


Then Prof. Ho mentioned Theranostics (Therapeutics plus Diagnostics) could be considered as engineering term from input to output. One of challenges is that molecular mechanisms could not provide guidance of dose levels that related to toxicity management.  His study the question that what is the Transfer Function from input “Drug & Dose” to output “Efficacy / Toxicity”?

Dinner with Dr. Aaron Chan and Dr. Yau Pak Man (Post-Doctorate Friends)

I was honor to be invited by Dr. Aaron Chan and Dr. Yau Pak Man (South China Chapter Chairman, IpostDocA) to have dinner for celebrating Dr. Aaron Chan and Dr. QIU Ning Ning passed the Post-Doc assessment.  


We had dinner in BLT Steak in Ocean Terminal, Tsim Sha Tsui.  The environment is very good and we saw the night scene in Victoria Harbor. 


We had a good food and each steak had indicator to identify the cooking level.  


After that we had discussed Dr. Aaron Chan’s paper named “Factors affect to Customer Loyalty in Logistics Industry” with red wine.  Dr. Chan had two hypotheses using Regression Model on Customer Loyalty of repeating use with current logistic service provider (CL1) and introducing current logistic service provider to others (CL2).  He said he performed both Regression Model and Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) but he finally selected Regression Model.  Because SEM is to confirm a research study design and to reduce the relationships to visual representations rather than to explore or explain a phenomenon.  Dr. Yau Pak Man also shared his study journey. 


Finally, I need to thank Dr. Aaron Chan and Dr. Yau Pak Man for this fruitful discussion and dinner, as well as, Dr. QIU Ning Ning’s gift.  Since Dr. Qiu is busy for her family business before CNY, we hope to meet her in next time that may be in Hong Kong or China.
