"AI is the new electricity. Here's what I mean by that. Over 100 years ago, when people like Thomas Edison, Westinghouse, and so on, started to electrify our nation, there were the first few apps: electric lighting, and maybe telegraph, and so on. But electricity has since transformed everything. And there were so many unexpected ramifications, like, electricity enabled refrigeration, which changed the entire food supply chain system. It changed from steam engines to electric motors which changed the way we build up our industry. I think AI could have a similarly transformative effect. Today, we're in the stage where companies are hiring, like a chief data officer, maybe in the future a chief AI officer, to come and sprinkle a bit of AI on top of everything. Just like in the early days we used to have a role called the VP of Electricity. Because electricity was really complicated; you had to to hire someone to manage it. I think we're in that stage now. And this is creating a lot of value. If you're not quite sure what else to do, if you're a C-level exec, if you hire a chief data officer or chief AI officer, they can come sprinkle a bit of AI on things, and it will be worth your while. I think in the next several years, there'll be another transformation, where AI needs to be a company-level, strategic decision."

‘I had this experience too’: Video shot on MTR sparks concerns over racial discrimination
A video posted on Facebook on Friday sparked concerns over racism. The clip showed a woman covering her nose as a black woman sat next to her on the MTR. Some who shared the video on Facebook said that they had similar experiences. According to the uploader, “when I sat next to her she immediately took out the tissue …

I've eaten many a magic mushroom... But I never picked them from wild... If you picked those (in the picture) off of horse pattys or cow plops then it is a good chance they are kewl funguys... But I would not even think about ingesting them in any way (unless you got the blessing of a professional mycologist)... I would try and hunt down a mycologist if I were you.

Introduction
Electrical and Firmware Engineer, dedicated to science since 2011. I love brain-teasing mathematical puzzles, optical illusions, philosophical paradox, and drama conflicts questing the meaning of our lives as well as the fragility of our perception.  I'm more serious than funny, more passionate than sarcastic, and more cynical than gullible, but .. I like being casual and funny and enjoying this life as well.

Born in China, but not Made in China, I had strong repulsion against Communism and theocracy, or other forms of dictatorship/absolutism; for that reason, I don't recognize and claim myself Chinese although with somewhat cultural legacy, so related compliment and curiosity are not appreciated - asking me what I think about Chinese eating placenta and dissidents being prosecuted? I would easily see this as asking me why I did it. I have no obligation and filial feeling toward my birthplace.

Power or Piety, describes my religious view. I believe it's more of an utility and obligation to believe in being servants with sins rather than being desire-driven, undisciplined person with arrogance. In another word, it's a choice of moral reference. When the power, public or private, becomes untamed, it's better to believe in God than to believe in no God. The value of religions in the history and some area of the world can not be erased. It's the dark age and industrial revolution twined together that make our world progress. Now I choose a neutral stance after going through the extremes. I'm agnostic and having slight favor toward the belief of atheism. I'm holding the view that God represents metaphysical UNKNOWN. I don't follow any organized religion for religious purpose. I believe that Bible, Koran, and other religious scripts are like fairy tales, we should not interpret it as if it's the word by God. We get the good thing from them, and abandon the bad things from them, because I think they were all written by humans, who make mistakes just like us. 

Philosophy, the linguistic algebra of history; Science, the rules running the multiverse, are the path I came along and the end I reside in. Expanding my structure of knowledge and filling the matrix of analogies is my ultimate spiritual goal. 

My core value and belief is that via helping others I can have strength and sympathy not jealousy and complaint. Zooming out in the country level, I seek for two things as the core values - Democracy and Science; I'm an idealist. 

I studied different languages and linguistics, so I'm still going to try my best to be trilingual, but electronics is both my hobby and career. It's an on-going conflict probably in the rest of my life between the two lifestyles I wish for. I want to own the world through the languages, but I also like exploring the nature, the law of physics for inventing and making stuff.
