Season 2 of the Tech Bubble continues to address issues of equity with Episode 9 focusing on the relationship between gender equity and technology. We catch up with former Vice-Principal Annette Chapman to find out what she’s been doing since leaving SIS, whilst also welcoming back two of our former students: Janis Wong and Ruthie Laidler, both students from the graduating class of 2014. Janis is currently working completing an interdisciplinary PhD in Computer Science at the University of St Andrews, where she is researching the legal applications and ethical implications of privacy, data protection, and technology. Her thesis focuses on how data protection can be thought of as a common good to mitigate power imbalances between individuals and companies. Since returning to Hong Kong, Ruthie has begun working for JP Morgan as an analytics developer with a focus on Q/KDB.
We also feature two current students both from the Digital Leadership Council: Aashika Mamgain from 11N2 and regular guest Rohan Williamson (12N2). Finally, the tech review team, Maxine Yang from 13B2, Paul Kim from 13N2 and Ryan Mak from 12S2 discuss what’s new.
