The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK)
Li Zhang is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering (MAE) and an associate faculty member in Chow Yuk Ho Technology Centre for Innovative Medicine (TIM) and T Stone Robotics Institute (CURI) at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). He is also the co-director of CAS SIAT-CUHK Joint Laboratory of Robotics and Intelligent Systems.
DR. Rey Tiquia is a Chinese technoscience philosopher at the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies at the University of Melbourne. Technoscience’ is a knowledge system that is closely linked to society and nature and vice-versa. This philosophy sees no dichotomy between science and technology. Each is an extension and embodiment of the other. Rey does research in Qualitative Social Research, Sociological Translation and Medical Anthropology. His current project is 'Restoring the Chinese Calendar 'Lifa' and the Cosmic Breath 'Qi' to the Real World.' As an independent Chinese technoscience researcher, he studies the metaphysical value of the Cosmic Breath 'Qi' and the Transnational Elemental Stems and Zodiacal Branches Calendrical Clock (Northern and Southern Hemispheres)to interrupt the decline of traditional Chinese Medicine and other Chinese technoscientific practices and their respective prognosticative power as mobile bodies of local knowledge while ensuring their continued innovation and regeneration.
