The crisis of covid-19 has changed the social order of human beings, and then affected the design paradigm of the artificial world. The world in the post pandemic era might be uncertainty, which is regarded as a dynamic situation that can affect human experience. We believe that Global problems caused by the covid-19 crisis need global solutions, which need knowledge to support an integrated system, support people-oriented design and future technology. With the theme of “Designing in the Post Covid World”, Professor Zhao is going to introduce the design research and practice I conducted for the Covid-19 crisis in the Tsinghua University.

Hong Kong positions itself as the world leading city in Asia. Its healthcare system, like Octopus, has once been the most advanced in the world. The legislation of the eHealth Record Sharing System is another advanced move which it is the first eHealth law in Asia.

In recent years the development of innovation technology has been much faster than imagination over the world. Smart Health, in use of IoT, Big Data and AI, has gradually come to the front. For example, China uses Health Code, a government-led intelligent health and social control system to tackle the COVID-19. It dictates who should be quarantined or allowed into subways, malls and public spaces.

This year face recognition was banned in San Francisco and Boston. Intelligent technology and system have increasingly raised the trust and privacy concerns. This short lecture hopes to inspire the audience to think about the possible new intelligent health system, the citizen-centric Trustworthy Intelligent Health and Wellbeing. The speaker will share the view and few potential cases transformable to the new initiatives with design thinking and collaborative action.
