Vinci Ng of S6D won the Championship in a competition “Brain Game” organised by Young Post of South China Morning Post.  Brain Game is a competition organized by Young Post, South China Morning Post (SCMP), that started with 10 participants who must answer a question as creatively as they can every week. Based on readers’ votes and Young Post editors’ picks, one participant was eliminated each round until there was a final winner. After nine creative and competitive rounds, Vinci successfully captured readers’ hearts and votes with her thought-provoking answers and vivid writing. In the final round, Vinci mesmerized readers with her witty answer to the question “What would ChatGPT say to Siri, and why?”, suggesting that ChatGPT and Siri could be partners in crime to play a few pranks on humans.  Her imaginative thinking and entertaining writing earned her spot as the winner.

Presented in Young Post of SCMP on 28.5.2023:
