'Golden' Discussion on Technology and Its Social Impact in Hong Kong

A seminar entitled "What Is the Future of the Golden Value", organized by School of Engineering Student Ambassadors and featuring Mr Cho Shun Lam, CEO of Hong Kong Golden Forum, and Mr Yeung Tat Wong, novelist and online radio host, drew an audience of more than 230 HKUST students in April.

The two speakers discussed their views on the social culture that has developed from the Golden Forum, an online discussion platform that often uses parody, and the amended copyright bill.

The event was initiated by Head Student Ambassadors Roy Ming Hin Chung, Computer Science and Engineering, and Jeff Ka Lok Li, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and supported by the School.
