Dr Kris Hartley published a commentary in the South China Morning Post

Nov 2021

Dr Kris Hartley, assistant professor at APS, has published a commentary in the South China Morning Post. Entitled “Hong Kong’s smart city dreams need trust, not just new tech, to succeed,” the article is based on his 2019 survey conducted in Hong Kong and published earlier this year at the following link: https://journals.sagepub.com/……/TZSKRYCRM8KP6……/full. The commentary states that governments must recognise that technology does not exist in a vacuum but amid broader social, political and economic forces that are often unpredictable. It also argues that the security and privacy concerns of citizens cannot be dismissed through assurances about the fairness and objectivity of technology.
