Pioneers in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are unearthing exciting opportunities for radical, disruptive and imaginative Deep Tech solutions to deliver unrivalled improvements in people’s lives. These opportunities represent milestones in the democratisation of good health, clean water, quality housing, to delivering on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Building upon ground-breaking, scalable science, experts in Deep Tech are reimagining the boundaries of social innovation. Pioneering entrepreneurs and scientists have partnered to use Artificial Intelligence to identify illegal logging, create affordable robots to improve access to complex surgeries and harness microbiome science to address water quality.
We are inviting visionary minds to be part of Deep Tech for Good, an SGInnovate initiative. This global initiative aims to gather experts in Science and Technology, entrepreneurship, academia, government and international affairs, to reimagine the boundaries of research-based innovation, catalyse collaborations among corporates, startups and governments, and advance Deep Tech developments for social and economic good.
