  • Debate: AI Should Be Regulated by Industry, Not Government

    Who should lead the regulation of AI? Government has the tools to require compliance, but risks constraining innovation. Industry has the know-how to ensure relevance, but risks self-interest trumping consumer protection. This debate will discuss whether AI should be regulated by industry or by government, covering perspectives on how regulation – broadly understood to include rules, standards, and supervised self-regulation – can and should balance reaping the benefits of AI against minimising avoidable harms. Getting this balance right is important not only to ensure that AI is trustworthy, but it will also determine whether consumers do in fact trust it in practice.

  • Future of Farming: Sustainable Agriculture

    The agriculture sector faces large challenges, from the environment to manpower to consumption and to pandemics. In the long term, climate changes, food market conditions, reforms in agricultural policies and export caps will continue to pose new challenges. How can we develop sustainable agriculture practices to feed our people under these conditions?

  • Our Sustainable Future With Advanced Materials

    High-performance advanced materials are at the core of the technological innovations needed to reach a sustainable, climate-neutral economy and society. Such materials are a part of the solution to our global challenges, offering better performance in their use, at a lower cost, resource and energy requirements, and improved sustainability at the end-of-life of the products. The development of these new materials could transform our world over the next few decades. We will require Advanced Material innovations across industries and all sectors of the economy to sustain our current and future consumption levels.

  • Singapore’s War on Diabetes: The Deep Tech Story

    In April 2016, the Singapore Ministry of Health (MOH) declared War on Diabetes to rally a whole-of-nation effort to reduce the diabetes burden in the population. According to MOH, we can expect one in two Singaporeans aged 70 to suffer from Type 2 diabetes by 2050; that's one million people of our population. The cost of diabetes treatment is increasing at double-digit rates throughout Asia. In Singapore alone, over S$1 billion is spent each year managing diabetes - a cost that digital healthcare technology aims to reduce.

  • Traceability and Transparency: Building Sustainable Supply Chains

    More frequent global shocks, increasing consumer demands for transparency and sustainability, and looming regulations are forcing businesses to better understand their entire supply chain (not just what’s easily visible). Yet, a Bain study found that 60% of companies have zero visibility into inputs beyond Tier 1 of their supply chains.
     
    Traceability will be a key differentiator: those who succeed will build competitive weapons, those who do not face risks and customer flight. Technology can enable this transparency with automated data sharing and visualisations across multiple parties, but it is not the only barrier to success. An equally daunting but perhaps more complicated challenge is designing the right governance, operating and partnership model, and data rights. 
     
    With 80% of the top 20 bilateral trade routes going through APAC by 2030, the region has a critical role to play. Early movers can reap significant advantages by defining the region’s industry standards and capitalising on white space. Join us as we explore how businesses can develop and leverage traceability to build a great supply chain – that is efficient, reliable, resilient, and sustainable.

  • Fuel for Thought: Hydrogen and Low-Energy Technologies for a Sustainable Energy Future

    As part of Singapore’s long-term low-emission development strategy, Singapore has pledged to reduce its peak greenhouse gas emissions in 2030 by the year 2050. With 95% of Singapore’s electricity currently generated from natural gas and Singapore’s limited renewable energy sources, the importance of developing low-carbon energy technologies including hydrogen is key to ensure a clean, reliable, and affordable energy supply.

  • The Promise of Deep Tech: Data-Driven Approaches for Efficient Patient Care

    As the world grapples with an ageing population and high incidences of chronic diseases, the gaps in healthcare have prominently surfaced. While innovation, technology and data-driven approaches can improve health outcomes, such an approach often involves a massive amount of confidential data transactions (i.e. patient information) - a lucrative target for hackers and cybercriminals. Healthcare is the most targeted industry for data breaches.
     
    In this session, join our panel of experts to discuss how a data-driven approach can bring us closer to a more transparent and sustainable healthcare system, reduce healthcare costs, and promote better collaboration in the healthcare ecosystem. They will also discuss the challenges in securing health data, data sharing and the role of cybersecurity in designing the healthcare system's networks.

  • How FoodTech Ensures Our Food Security Beyond Covid-19

    Here in Singapore, we love our food, and we cannot lie. With many dishes and flavours from all corners of the world, it’s no wonder eating is the (unofficial) Singapore’s favourite pastime. As we continue to enjoy the latest food trends and culinary recipes, it’s essential that we not ignore the growing concern over our food supply.
