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.

HKPC Seminar on Smart Innovation for new business models in i4.0 and e4.0

Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) and INC Invention Centre coorganized Seminar named “Smart Innovation for new business models in Industry 4.0 and Enterprise 4.0” on 16th July 2019.  The seminar aimed to introduce the know-how and methods of how successful start-ups in Silicon Valley and elsewhere have transformed their business , with implementing agile project management, design thinking and customer-centric innovation as well as how to leverage the power of Industry 4.0 (i4.0) and Enterprise 4.0 (e4.0) to apply digital business models.  I took a photo with Mr. Partick Kabasici in front of the INC Invention Centre.


Mr. Patrick Kabasci (Technology Management, Fraunhofer IPT, KEX Knowledge Exchange AG) was the speaker and his topic named “Innovation for new business models”.  Firstly, he discussed some companies did not change using sailboat as example.  Eventhough we added more sail in the boat, it did not faster than steam one.


He then quoted Clayton M. Christensen (his theory of "disruptive innovation") that most executive compared the cash flows from innovation against the default scenario of doing nothing.  But the assumption was wrong because of discounted cash flow without innovation investment.  


And then he briefed the Business Model Generation (Osterwalder, 2013) in which had 9 building blocks of a company.  It could be associated with the four fundamental clusters Customer, Product, Abilities and Finances. 


After that Patrick briefed three measures to be a world-class innovation and they were “Innovate with Customer”, “Focus Core Competence” and “Network with Partner”.  He also mentioned companies faced with increasing Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity (VUCA).

暴力

最近香港社會充滿暴力及針對警察以「示威」為名的攻擊一眾泛民議員及支持者包庇姑息使用暴力的示威者他們的理由是政府警察過份使用武力官逼民反等等曾幾何時左中右一起反暴力就是在2014年由記協主辦的【新聞界 企硬 反暴力 默站行動】及由幫港出聲主辦的【「和平香港,全民支持」起動】可惜在2016年開始,很多泛民政客的言論為暴徒淡化和卸去責任。當年幸有湯家驊對何俊仁的說法「擔心有人『醜化』運動」作出批評及說出道理來。
「暴力便是暴力、傷人便是傷人,背後理念如何崇高也改變不了事實!目前首要工作是維護法治,回復社會秩序!希望政客們正視問題所在,不要轉移公眾視線!」
估不到現在還適用。

蝸牛路指出如今香港因為反共恐共而反政府,三不五時聚集一大群蒙面之徒,以「示威」為名的流氓,到處搗亂欺凌,已經遠遠超越表達意見的底線。躲在人群之中,面罩之後,要以什麼手段抗議示威,公民抗命,先拿掉面罩再談正義吧。示威的人本來就應該是認為自己正當,才走出來抗議的。全世界哪一個文明國家的示威是如此鬼祟,不能讓真面目示人?

有些人士要重新定義暴動,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。

本人反對的是有些暴力抗爭者「為求目的不擇手段沒有底線」他們是不會成功繼續為以暴力示威的暴徒用不同的解釋,以尋求暴力行為來開脫,這只會使這些暴徒繼續以為自己所的事,是天經地義,是理直氣壯的事(如丁蟹)。這條底線,將會被更加推危險的邊緣。

正如古今中外所說的道德化了暴力行為加上社交媒體分享的人數越多,人們便會傾向以暴力行為對付敵對理念的示威者。他說:泛民要求取消612日的暴力示威的暴動定性,和釋放被拘捕人士,這是鼓勵了暴力示威,直接導致71日的暴力衝擊立法會。而且,暴力衝擊立法會之後,以「飲汽水有付錢」、「沒有破壞圖書館」、「拯救不願離去的四位義士」等來美化和道德化暴力衝擊,是對暴力示威行為的獎賞,只會造成暴力示威浪潮變本加厲。標少札記中提出的比喻: 那位仁兄/仁姐, 還充滿驕傲的講, 很文明地喝了立法會裏的汽水也有付錢的。破壞了這麼多東西, 為甚麼沒有放下一千幾百萬修理費? 豈不是像打劫了路人的全身財物然後撿張廿元給他坐巴士回家一樣? 笑話一則的道理。

標少札記提出「和平示威者要與暴徒切割, 否則就是幫兇。」他在政治和法治一文中籲遊行人士守法若抱着和平的心去就要與行使暴力的人切割(dissociate) 切割就是立場的表徵表明行為及意識形態上的不相同沒有common intent使用暴力不是joint enterprise也不是accomplice。切割的重要性是遊行性質的一種定性有些人會抱和平的心去受臨場環境氣氛感染及影響而理智失控而致使用暴力有人卻是刻意找機會滋事的, 找不到機會就和平, 找到機會就乘機摶亂。

魔術師的伊謝爾倫日記再次重溫李天命《思考三式VS三大盲潮》
那三個問式之中的第一個就是問:X是什麼意思?」X可以指語詞,或者句子,或者理論。第二個問式是:X有什麼根據?」這時的X可以指一種說法或者思想。即是說第一個問式是問「何意」,第二個問式是問「何據」(有什麼根據、理據、理由)。至於第三個問式,那就是問:「關於X,還有什麼值得考慮的可能性?」第一和第二個問式屬於批判思考,第三個問式屬於創意思考。

我也把李天命的「四不架構」重溫一下
不一致 (The fallacy of inconsistency) - 思考或言論有矛盾衝突、自我推翻、不一致等性質。
不當預設 (The fallacy of inappropriate presumption) - 把不妥當的假設視為妥當。
不相干 (The fallacy of irrelevance) - 嘗試建立某論點時提出一些沒有邏輯關係的論據。
不充分 (The fallacy of insufficient evidence) - 嘗試建立某論點時所提出的論據雖然與結論有關連,但卻不足以支持結論。

最後我以進擊的巨人第118暗算的一圖作結
根本就沒有惡魔這座島上有的只是人類我們擅自把素未謀面的人們全都當成惡魔看待。」
這就是洗腦的後果,把人們當成惡魔看待; 警察當成黑警看待; 示威者當成暴徒看待國人當成蝗蟲看待。其實大家都是市民是人民都是人類

HKIE Debriefing Seminar on Insights from Israel on Innovation, Infrastructure & Investment


The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) (YMC and CPDC jointly) organized debriefing seminar named “Insights from Israel on Innovation, Infrastructure & Investment” on 12th July 2019. The HKIE-YMC Overseas Delegation is a sustainable programme that arouses young engineer’s potential in leadership and motivates the young ones’ vision to learn from overseas experiences. Israel has applied many innovative technologies to overcome the country’s challenges and enhance the quality of people’s life. She has a thriving start-up culture and has attracted a number of investment and partnerships in high-technology industries. The debriefing seminar aimed to share a 9-day trip to Israel and a year-long study result so as to propose some insight for Hong Kong development.  I arrived the HKIE and took a photo.


During registration, a report of oversea delegation 2019 Israel was distributed.


In the beginning, Mr. Thomas Lam (CLP) was MC and introduced the program and speakers. He introduced the frame “Innovation • Infrastructure • Investment”.


The first speaker was Mr. Benny Cheung (Graduate Trainee, HK Electric) and his topic entitled “Innovation”.  Firstly, he briefed Innovation as idea, creative thoughts, new imaginations of better solutions involved the practical implementation via the engineering process for problem solving.


Then he compared HK and Israel in education.  Hong Kong has top university education and Israel has Israel Defence Force (IDF) which exposure to cutting edge technologies and intensive training.  They experienced to address real live solution and flat hierarchy.  And then Mr. Benny Cheung compared Closed Innovation to Open Innovation. He added to adopt open innovation that third party innovation facilitators (e.g. The Floor – Israel’s First Fintech Hub; CoCoon – HK coworking space) were needed.
