Unlocking the future: explore the latest in artificial general intelligence with civil service college and peking university's joint programme

The Civil Service College (CSC), in collaboration with the Institute for Hong Kong and Macau Studies, Peking University, launched an in-depth programme on "one country, two systems" and contemporary China. As part of the programme, a lecture on the topic of "Artificial General Intelligence: Frontiers, Trends, Paradigm, and Strategy" was delivered by the Dean of the School of Intelligence Science and Technology of Peking University, Professor Zhu Songchun, at the CSC today (May 21).

Addressing the lecture, the Secretary for the Civil Service, Mrs Ingrid Yeung, said that the development of "new quality productive forces" will open up deeper and broader development space for Hong Kong. With its unique advantages of strong support of the motherland and close connections with the world under the "one country, two systems" principle, Hong Kong integrates closely with the international community. Coupled with its high standards in scientific research, the city attracts a wealth of research and professional talent, contributing to the country's high-quality development. Civil servants of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government should embrace Hong Kong's role in developing "new quality productive forces", and stay abreast of the innovation and technology development strategy of the country. They should also actively promote the high-quality development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and complement the implementation of the Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Development Blueprint, thereby enhancing Hong Kong's overall competitiveness and injecting impetus into its development.

Around 70 civil servants at the rank of Directorate Pay Scale Point 1 and 2 attended the programme. In addition, about 130 politically appointed officials and other directorate officers enrolled and sat in on the lecture via video conferencing.

The programme was organised to further strengthen training for senior officials and directorate civil servants. It consists of 12 monthly lectures covering a wide range of topics, such as the Communist Party of China and contemporary China, socialism with Chinese characteristics, the theory and practice of "one country, two systems", as well as developments in contemporary Chinese society, economy, national defence, technology, and more. Distinguished scholars from the Mainland will deliver the programme and engage in in-depth discussions with participants.

Celebrate chinese opera at the inaugural chinese cultural festival with a spectacular lineup of performances and activities to promote chinese culture and arts

  The inaugural Chinese Cultural Festival (CCF) will present a number of quality Chinese opera performances from June to September, covering Cantonese opera, North Road Bangzi opera, Chiuchow opera, Liuzi opera, Yue opera, Kunqu opera, Wu opera and Peking opera, which allows members of the public to appreciate the essence of Chinese opera, with a view to promoting Chinese culture as well as the arts of Chinese opera. The local production "Cyrano de Bergerac" - A Cantonese Opera Interpretation kicked off the series of performances at the Grand Theatre of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre today (June 14), which also marked the start of the 12th Chinese Opera Festival (COF). The performance is one of the highlights of the 35th anniversary of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre as well.

  The "Cyrano de Bergerac" - A Cantonese Opera Interpretation is a new production developed by Cantonese opera virtuoso Law Ka-ying, who has been working on it for a decade. The play is an adaptation of a 19th-century French classic piece of the same title. Law partners with famous veterans Liza Wang and Sun Kim Long to present this well-known story of a love triangle. This adaptation not only preserves the performing techniques, traditional forms and artistic charm of Cantonese opera, but also exhibits an exquisite combination of the plot and musical elements of Western drama to reflect the protagonist Zhu Bufan's deep love for the princess. The touching performance won warm applause from the audience.

  The LCSD has invited outstanding troupes from all over the country to participant in this year's festival, including the Academy of Xinzhou Studies, Guangdong Chiu Chow Opera Theatre Number One Troupe and Sun Hon Kwong Chiu Chow Opera Troupe, the Centre for the Safeguarding of Liuzi Opera of Shandong, the Fujian Fanghua Yue Opera Troupe, the Northern Kunqu Opera Theatre, the Zhejiang Wu Opera Research Centre, and the Shanghai Jingju Theatre Company. In addition, the LCSD will arrange a series of extension activities, including talks, meet-the-artists sessions, an exhibition and Chinese opera film screenings, throughout the CCF period to promote the artistry and culture of Chinese traditional opera. The "Artistic Essence Everlasting - Chinese Opera Festival Photo Exhibition", currently being held at the Foyer Exhibition Area of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, features a fine selection of memorable moments from past performances on stage at the COF, allowing Chinese opera lovers to revisit the captivating brilliance of top-notch Chinese opera artists from various genres. Admission to the exhibition is free, and the exhibition will run until June 16 (Sunday).
