  • Preparing for Factories of Tomorrow

    A Smart Factory usually refers to a highly digitalised and connected environment where systems can use a constant stream of data from connected machinery and equipment to learn and adapt to new demands.
    However, industrial automation is still commonly seen as a threat to existing manufacturing jobs no matter how exciting "Factories of Tomorrow" sounds. In reality, there is an emerging trend called the "Digital Talent Gap". According to MHI's Annual Industry Report, manufacturers are caught in a position where digital technologies are not implemented efficiently due to a lack of workers with the necessary skills to run them. It shows that the human element in the digitalisation journey is still essential, and there is a need to start investing in talent development to adopt i4.0 Technology.
    Join us with our panel of speakers as they share more on how can the industry prepare for the Factories of Tomorrow by addressing the "Talent Gap" for manufacturing.

  • AI and the Future of Education

    The World Economic Forum estimates that 50% of the workforce needs reskilling in the next decade. This is a massive challenge, and it will happen on a global scale. Under the hood, many things are changing. Where in the past, education relied on a one-size-fits-all, study-once model, the future of education seems to be more personalised and continuous in nature.
    In this panel discussion, we will therefore discuss how AI is changing the way we learn. We will look specifically at how reskilling can become a precision game, how models can infer skills of workers from information, how proximity between jobs can be calculated, and how policymakers, both corporate and global, aim to create value with this technology.

  • The Future of Work : Outlook & Implications in a Disruptive World

    Businesses have radically transformed in the age of disruptive technologies. The trend is currently more visible and has been exacerbated due to the impact of COVID-19, which accelerates the adoption of artificial intelligence, automation, and robotics in the workplace, changing the workplace of the future dynamically. The new tech-enabled work environment for work from home has helped make businesses more resilient in the face of pandemic and other threats with the adoption of virtual private networks (VPNs), voice over internet protocols (VoIPs), virtual meetings, cloud technology, work collaboration tools and even facial recognition technologies. However, this has also raised challenges of information security, data privacy and timely technical support.
    Changing workplace trends creates a need for the development of innovative large-scale upskilling, reskilling and redeployment initiatives. These trends make it imperative for governments, businesses, academic institutions and individuals to consider how to proactively shape a new, positive future of work, emphasising the need for large-scale, informed and collaborative action.
    In this session, industry leaders from India and Singapore will discuss how Deep Tech is changing and impacting business models, as well as how the learning evolution among the current and future workforce and the magnitude of talent mobility across geographies are likely to influence the nature of work in the future.
