“The rights of many tenants in Hong Kong are left unenforced. Not only are the relevant regulations and clauses inaccessible and convoluted, it is also hard for the average tenant to know whom to approach when there is a “health and safety” issue in their buildings. We develop a technology solution that would inform tenants about their rights using computer vision technology. Tenants can simply use their mobile phones to scan items in the common areas of their buildings to learn about the regulations and clauses relevant to those items. This would enable them to anonymously report these breaches for enforcement.”
