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.
The Deep Tech for Good partnership aims to:

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.

What are the opportunities and implications to sustainable agriculture, especially in cities that are looking toward more high-tech indoor vertical farming methods? Join us in our session with sustainable farming exports on their take on innovative solutions toward food productivity.
The Sustainable Development Goals demand financial resources, and they equally require the mobilisation of intelligence. Together with Nesta’s Centre for Collective Intelligence Design, the United Nations Development Programme recognises that in order for governments of the world to achieve these goals, we need to get smarter by harnessing the knowledge of almost 8 billion people on the planet. This report is a call to make it standard practice to channel the innovations, knowledge and contributions of people across the globe, to get serious about the move towards real-time data, and to find responsible ways of using Artificial Intelligence to elevate human intelligence.
The present climate emergency has escalated to become humanity’s harshest threat. Not only have natural disasters and new epidemics taken a toll on biological diversity, but there have also been other consequences as a result of global warming. The World Economic Forum or WEF has estimated that the financial cost of curbing these aftereffects of global warming might soar to $1.7 trillion or around 52 trillion THB by 2050, a mere three decades from today. This figure is also expected to escalate to $30 trillion or approximately 918 trillion THB by 2075, a drastic price to pay to resolve these manufactured problems.
Unilever Foundry SEAA, the collaborative corporate innovation platform of Unilever, partnered with Fairbanc, a FinTech startup, to provide Sharia-compliant inventory financing to selected credit-starved merchants while managing risks using Data Science. The pilot programme “Bank Yang Adil” aims to enable inventory financing for micro-merchants, allowing them to opt-in to procure Unilever products based on their past sales record, with no down payment. In 2021, the wider rollout of the Bank Yang Adil programme is expected to reach over 11,000 micro-merchants across Indonesia in Java, Sumatra, Bali and Kalimantan, with potential annual financing of Unilever products worth $117 million. Unilever Foundry is an ecosystem partner of SGInnovate's Deep Tech for Good initiative. www.deeptechforgood.com
