"With the arrival and constant evolution of the AI era, global issues and development trends have become increasingly evident. However, Hong Kong's development in this area has remained at the level of enterprise applications, and many people, including our driver partners, low-income families, and even many blue-collar and white-collar workers, have not been able to grasp the opportunity or learn its application skills, which puts Hong Kong out of touch with the world. We believe that AI education is essential for the future of work and society," said co-founder and CEO of GoGoX, Steven Lam. "Our programs are designed to help individuals, especially underprivileged children, stay ahead of the curve."
The AI Community Learning Lab is a part of GoGoX's commitment to promoting diversity, inclusion, and equal access to opportunities for all members of the Hong Kong community. The learning lab will unite several startups in Hong Kong to fulfill social responsibility, provide resources, platforms, courses, and opportunities, and benefit more people. Initially, the lab will reach out to children of different ages in the district, define their interests and groups, and provide targeted free courses. "We are excited to partner with GoGoX to provide people in need of the tools and skills they need to succeed in the 21st century," said Tommie Lo, Founder and CEO of Preface. “The fast-paced advancements in AI pose a challenge to traditional ways of living, conducting businesses, and education. However, it also offers an opportunity to elevate productivity and make technical skills accessible to all. It is not about AI replacing humans, but rather humans who can collaborate effectively with AI who will replace those who can’t, in the future. AI is not the future, it is the present. By learning how to use it responsibly, we can unlock new opportunities and empower learners to reach their full potential.” While being optimistic about AI Learning, many have also raised concerns about the potential challenges and risks that AI may bring. One of the main challenges is the potential for AI to reinforce biases and inequalities, particularly if the algorithms and data used are biased or incomplete. Another challenge is the potential for AI to replace humans, such as teachers and instructors, as well as others, leading to job displacement and a loss of the personal touch and connection that is critical to effective learning. To address these challenges, GoGoX is committed to working with educators, policymakers, and technology developers to ensure that AI is used in a responsible and ethical manner in education. Steven and Tommie both noted, “We believe that education and training programs will need to be developed to help students and educators acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to work with and interact with AI in a constructive and positive way. By working collaboratively to develop responsible AI practices in education, we want to unlock the full potential of AI to transform and enhance learning opportunities for all students, as well as enhancing their critical thinking skills.” The long-term development goal of the Community Learning Lab is to become a shared AI knowledge platform, continually discover talent, promote learning and professional development within this ecosystem. The lab is also committed to promoting diversity, inclusivity, and equal opportunities, enabling all members of the Hong Kong community to have equal access to opportunities.
