How to Make Live house Alive?

siteadmin | IT Start UP

Hong Kong can be said to be a disaster in recent months. In addition to the anti-revision cases since June last year, a new type of pneumonia has recently struck, which has worsened the already bleak night market. So how to survive in a live house? The following is an empirical analysis drawn from the author’s integration of multiple operators, hoping to help the bosses overcome the difficulties:

1.) Takeaway

Evening food at night is not an idea only on the first day, but at this time, many companies may implement tight work at home, which encourages employees to work at home, so few people work in the original office, even if you are already doing lunch Even the minute is not enough to maintain the cost, so the only way is to join some take-out platforms for take-out, hoping to increase income by this.

2.) Make money using new media for performances

Many people who are engaged in live houses are themselves musicians. In this age of the Internet, this requires some simple tools, such as mic, and the lights can be used to live on the Internet. These tools are also cheap to buy on Amoy X, as long as they are disinfected when they are delivered, they can be used. Because the epidemic is really severe now, many people prefer to stay at home. What do you do at home? It is also very distressed, so if you know how to perform with new media such as Youtube, Titok (tremolo), I believe it will attract a lot of fans, and some will give you rewards, which can also earn some income!

3.) E-commerce

In fact, it is not out of reach for e-commerce. Whether it is local or foreign, they also need some daily necessities. However, it is not necessary to set up a website for e-commerce. It is not difficult to sell things online in disguise because of the social media relationship, as long as you post some product photos or some introduction articles (commonly known as drafts) Already. Usually if something is very demanding, it will get a response quickly, so that you can profit from it and earn some money to maintain your livelihood!

香港 Live house 的最大問題

siteadmin | music

香港近來都有很多「音樂餐廳」,即每晚都有駐唱歌手表演的餐廳。這種模式早在80年代初已經出現過,不過多數在酒廊才會看到他們的蹤影,現在將模式改做去餐廳罷了。不過這種模式在香港能行得通嗎?筆者試從不同角度看看。

社會事件導致客量減少

近來社會事件持續,尤其在假期晚上,旺角、尖沙嘴、銅鑼灣,這些傳統購物旺區,都有黑衣人聚集。他們經常到處破壞,一些連鎖餐廳、食肆、零食店、甚至銀行也被破壞。有見及此,很多市民都選擇晚上留在家中,導致一些「夜店」生意慘淡。Live house 主要也是做夜市,所以當然也會有影響。

太多娛樂了

當踏入千禧年代,互聯網發展一日千里,及後來手機網絡發展至 4G,到現在的 5G,每個人都可以拿住手機,隨時隨地看自己的影片,或娛樂方式,根本永不著去 live house 看表演!所以香港這種現場娛樂發展了那麼多年,仍然是路途崎嶇,看不到任何寸進!

租金人工成本太貴

雖然部分業主願意因為近期社會事件而減租,但人工成本仍然很貴,尤其在餐飲娛樂,佔整體成本4成,加上租金成本,可以說讓這種 live house 經營負擔太重,所以很難維持。

所以要在香港開 live house,除非用別的經營模式,否則很難維持。

Is Live house start up possible?

siteadmin | music

Although a live house in Hong Kong is not as topical as a shared office, a live house is also what people need. Because live house is a label representing the development of music art in that city, More live houses also represent the city’s respect and passion for music creation. Secondly, music is also a form of entertainment. In addition, music can really help people relax. It really needs its existence in this lush society. So is Live house start up feasible?

First, entrepreneurship is a science. It is feasible or not feasible to use data to support this entrepreneurial concept. In general, the live house business model in Hong Kong is selling tickets and renting places, and some are accompanied by drinks. Just looking at these concepts, the business model is not infeasible, the problem is that Hong Kong ’s rent is the highest in the world, but if a group of independent orchestras are required to bear the rent, it may not be feasible. The provider also needs to set a minimum number of participants to close the “ loss gate ” …

Even if these various modes are set up, in the end, it must be supported by some fans to be profitable. If the fans are not enthusiastic, they will be “no way” in the end!

The name of the independent band is too long to read

siteadmin | music

As the Internet’s technology evolves, many people like their own group of indie band, and then toured around the world. In Japan, the birthplace of the Asian live house, many indie band have been born, including DYGL, TENDOUJI and so on. Some names are a bit long and not very good, for example: “Survive Said The Prophet”.

This “Survive Said The Prophet”, I have browsed their official website, there is also an alias called “SABAPURO”, trying to check the meaning, but did not succeed. I am not a band manager or a musician, but I still have a little understanding of marketing. The first, name is very important if a band want to succeed. If the fans forget the name or don’t know how to read it, even if the music is really good, the band name is difficult to pass on.

For example, the now very hot Taiwanese group, Mayday, in English called Mayday, is it very easy to read and remember? Or the group Beyond, which was very famous in Greater China Area, it is just an English word. The groups that were popular in foreign countries are all at most up to three words, such as: Backstreet Boys, Boyz II Men, Spice Girls, and rarely use four words in their names.

Because it is difficult to remember, it is difficult to remember, so I suggest that those independent orchestras be renamed. At the time, it is better to have up to three children. Otherwise, people will forget you. It is useless to do anything.

Online Home Decoration Platforms are Everywhere, How Do They Succeed?

siteadmin | IT Start UP

Thanks to the Internet, some cars rental, rental houses, tourism, and even home decoration platforms have emerged. This shows that it is an emerging business model, but what is the competitive advantage of this model? Here how I analyze:

Consumer trust system

Taking the home deco platform as an example, many founders will find it difficult to find a reliable home decoration partners, so they set up an online platform to introduce consumers to a reliable decoration master. The question is based on why consumers believe in this platform? Do their customer service representatives have knowledge or experience in home decoration? Or those platforms have a so-called consumer-trust system in place? If so, how is it designed to make the users believe what they recommend. I certainly believe their staffs need to well explain to the users.

Operators database

In the old days, some people who taught business would say: “The money is in the database!” If your operators database is big enough, you can introduce them to customers. However, again you need to entice consumer trust first. Speaking of this, some people may say that customers can leave comments on the platforms. But how many of these comments are true and how many are fake? This is going to test everyone’s wisdom!

Value-added services

The issue of trust cannot be solved immediately, but if the industry can provide a free supervision service, or it can increase your customer trust. But of course, if the supervisor has experience in decoration, even if he/she involved “in the middle of the trick,” consumers will trust you more.

After talking for so long, what is it fighting? Or an added value is that they fight!

Correcting the bias of face recognition technology – establishing an inclusive recognition model

siteadmin | security

There are shortcomings in face recognition technology, especially for people of color or gender. In order to create a more fair face recognition system, Fb’s recent AI team announced a fairer algorithm in the F8 sharing conference. In addition, the team also found that the industry found photos and colors of white males when looking for photos to train the machine. The proportion of photos of races and women is not 1:1, which also causes artificial intelligence to deviate in the recognition of human faces, which also led to serious deviations in Amazon Rekognition.

Fb’s announcement also represents the “discrimination” problem that technology can solve face recognition with technology, and people do not need to be excluded because of systematic deviations, and even fear the use of technology.

San Francisco City Plan prohibits human face recognition software application

siteadmin | facial recognition

San Francisco has a number of successful technology companies (such as Uber, Twitter, Airbnb, and Yahoo) that will vote for the controversial Stop Secret Surveillance Ordinance (SSSO). It is reported that this SSSO is that legislation does not allow the government to use the human face recognition system to monitor her city, and the person who supports this proposal said that in the past experiments, the face recognition system has a great way to identify people of color. The error creates a potential racial discrimination issue.

However, some comments doubt whether their rationale is reasonable? For example, the recognition technology of face recognition will become more and more accurate with deep learning, and in San Francisco, the government also allows some companies that provide genetic identification and analysis (such as 23andMe and Ancestry) to register and operate locally. In fact, is this invading privacy or making some kind of discrimination?

The media opposed to legislation believes that SSSO has a wide definition of monitoring technology, even including RFID scanners or monitoring instruments carried on individuals, and questioning the rationale for this bill.

In fact, the application of technology always has positive and negative aspects. When the email is available, it is convenient for people to communicate. However, some people will spam emails, and even the criminals will use emails to retrieve the password of the victim’s bank account for theft. As long as the human face recognition technology is applied properly, it can bring convenience in various social fields. However, some politicians like to exaggerate its negative application and let them have certain interests. Such an attitude is actually not a blessing to society!

Face recognition system cooperates with “superhuman” to fight crime

siteadmin | news

CNET, a well-known technology website, recently published an article about the collaboration between “super recognizer” and face recognition systems. Super Recognizers are humans with special talents who can identify a large number of faces. It is a cognitive quirk discovered by Harvard University and the University of London in 2009. These people are known to have only 2% of the total population.

Super Recognizer will also be used in police investigations (such as the City of London police), but because police investigations often have to check a large number of closed-circuit television or other face data, it is too slow to identify them by hand alone! Therefore, local police will also use the face recognition system, but because the system is still in the testing stage, and there will be errors, if Super Recognizer can work with the computer, it will be seamless and the efficiency of the crime will be greatly improved.
