Dr. Kenny Siu’s Sharing on Sing Pao Column – Digitalization for Sustainable Development
Digitalization for sustainable development is based on two major development trends, namely green technology and digital transformation. Green technology tends to improve the production efficiency or optimize product effectiveness and at the same time utilize resources and energy, reduce the use and disposal of toxic substances, emphasize the importance of design for recycling and reuse, as well as reduce the pollution on the environment. Digital transformation refers to the increase of companies’ returns through the adoption of digital technology. Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain, cloud, big data, algorithms, 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) are technologies that companies should realize and apply in their environment protection strategies.
