New solutions from HK government tech lab

Two tech firms operating under the Hong Kong Smart Government Innovation Lab recently announced that they have launched new solutions which are now ready to be acquired by companies and institutions.

Solution one – NeuroGym gamified cognitive training platform

Solution description

NeuroGym is an interactive gamified cognitive training platform. It revolutionises entertainment and cognitive training by incorporating academic research and popular games, such as Mahjong, Calligraphy and daily activities.

Solution two – Blockchain Platform for Digital Contract Signature, Document Storage and Asset Management

Solution description

The solution is a blockchain platform for digital contract signature, document storage and asset management where all sensitive data transmission is stored on the blockchain and can be viewed on the mobile application and website portal.

For an asset management solution, a unique hash ID is generated for each asset with a corresponding QR code. Users can operate asset status by simply scanning QRcode, allowing trustable data and document management.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in most people adopting a work-from-home arrangement; there has thus been a rise in paperwork, especially the documents that need to be signed and confirmed by multiple responsible people, which are not convenient to bring back home for processing.

To prevent the loss of important documents, the leakage of important files and important documents from being used improperly, during the epidemic, some staffs may still have to take a few days a week to take risks to work at the office. On the other hand, users and customers are troubled because of difficulties signing a contract online.

To remedy this issue, the firm developed a blockchain-based safe and secure online contract signing platform to enable the signing of contracts and documents online without paperwork at any time and anywhere.

The solution allows full life cycle management of digital contract and blockchain document depository; it also ensures security and reliability of source file in the links of encryption, transmission, and storage through technologies such as electronic signature, digital authentication, reliable timestamp and blockchain. Therefore, relevant parties can sign contract remotely, and hence providing service without delay.

Application Areas

The solution was developed to be applied in the areas of Broadcasting, City Management, Commerce and Industry, Development, Employment and Labour, Finance, Health, Law and Security, Social Welfare as well as Transport.

Technologies Used

The solution employs Blockchain, Cloud Computing, Data Analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), Mobile Technologies, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technologies.

Use case

The solution consists of two parts. For digital contract and signature, document storage, allows civil servants to sign contracts at any time and anywhere, even under the “work from home” period. An application that needs to be signed by a civil servant or approved by multiple departments can proceed smoothly.

The solution thus ensures stability by providing a public service and increasing work efficiency. On the other hand, when there are any legal problems caused, it is easier to conduct legal proceedings if needed based on blockchain electronic certificate to protect rights and interests in accordance with the law, due to the ease of access to electronic documents.

Moreover, documents stored on the blockchain and ensure its reliability as data is unchangeable. This is more reliable than using legal evidence. Storing documents on blockchain also prevent the risk of losing paper contracts and documents, ensuring the quality of public service.

For asset management, the solution can reduce idle assets and maintenance costs by 50%. It also reduces manpower for regular inspection and maintenance of assets, so that it can reduce government expenditure and better use of human resources.

The solution can also avoid asset misplacement and loss of assets, and update the asset status. Therefore, it is much easier for the public to borrow government equipment and the government can ensure the equipment lent is in its best condition.
