機場智能化趨勢

 

今年9月,國際機場協會(ACI)發布2018年全球機場在客運、貨運和航班起降量的報告。香港國際機場在全球貨運量蟬聯冠軍,客運量也維持第八位,令港人自豪。不過,報告卻特別點名另一個機場,指它在客貨運都有顯著進步,這在競爭激烈的國際航運中並不多見──那就是美國洛杉磯國際機場(LAX)。它的貨運量由前年的13位,攀升3級至去年的第十位;客運也由第五升上第四位,與香港機場各有千秋。能交出這樣亮麗的成績,LAX近年的全面現代化功不可沒。

Getting ready for the future

 

In the face of uncertainties in Hong Kong and the world, I try to make some predictions in my latest book “Are You Future Ready?". Among the forecasts is that within 10 years we could have dedicated dashboards that would summarize information, based on our individual interests, from various smart devices, including watches, spectacles, toilets, steering wheels of cars, etc. The system can also add unstructured data like Chinese medicine handwriting diagnosis and western medicine list to monitor health in a holistic manner. Prediction on health risks can be made accordingly.

A new study in the United States found that over one-quarter of the caregivers for the elderly in the country are new immigrants, and the US Labor Department expected that the caregiver industry will grow by over 40 percent in the next 10 years, far ahead of other industries. This echoes the prediction by Hong Kong Labour and Welfare Secretary Law Chi-kwong that the city will need at least another 240,000 foreign domestic helpers, an increase of over 66 percent of the current figure, within the next few decades due to the aging population. In Japan, a large number of foreign workers to fill the 380,000 caregiver vacancies by 2025 is desperately needed.
