Panel speakers
Alex Kong, released the famed “Do No Evil” app that, until recently, provided public access to a database of more than two million records of litigation and bankruptcy cases.
The app recently made news for being pulled by the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD) as being a “serious invasion of privacy” despite sourcing publicly-available data.

+Andrew Leyden an attorney and developer who released the “Hong Kong Air Pollution” app which not only tells you about the pollution levels in Hong Kong on a map, but also does back-end computations comparing HK’s pollution measures against WHO standards.
