As a key component of smart city technologies, Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be found in a wide range of activities and provides new ways of approaching problems and meaningfully improves many facets of people's lives. AI has been used to develop and advance numerous fields and industries, including finance, healthcare, education, transportation, and more. The recent pandemic has served to underscore AI's importance in smart city development as the process of digitization takes on even greater urgency.
As part of its new research program dedicated to assessing AI adoption and readiness in Hong Kong, Google Hong Kong has recently published a whitepaper entitled "Smarter Digital City - AI for Everyone". The whitepaper is a continuation of a three-year Smarter Digital City research from 2017 to 2019. It sets a new benchmark to help understand AI adoption, barriers and benefits across four key sectors - Finance, Retail, Travel & Logistics and Technology & Innovation. It also examines the current level of understanding on and adoption of AI, identifies barriers to adoption, and uncovers future opportunities to accelerate AI development in Hong Kong post-COVID-19.
In conjunction with the whitepaper, Google Hong Kong also launched a ShareJoy campaign and the HO JENG AR mobile app available for free. Powered by augmented reality (AR) and machine learning, the app brings an immersive experience with six iconic AR characters designed for Hong Kong.
Join our webinar on 23 November when Leonie Valentine, Managing Director, Sales & Operations, Google Hong Kong, and James O'Callaghan, Partner, Head of Technology Consulting, Hong Kong, KPMG China will share the findings and recommendations set out in their latest whitepaper. Eddie Azadi, Executive Creative Director of Google, will also share the creative process of developing the HO JENG AR app and how innovative technologies can be used to do good and help spread positivity.
