Deep Tech has evolved into a distinct approach to innovation and will drive the next great wave of innovation. While the narrative evolves quickly, it has also developed very specific characteristics.
In the race to achieve the ever-increasing ambitions towards net-zero emissions, the voluntary carbon market is gaining momentum with keen buyers seeking to offset the climate footprint of their fossil fuels. Nature-based Solutions (NbS) - as actions that harness the power of nature to tackle social and environmental challenges - is a core foundation to achieving carbon neutrality for its way to build resilience to the consequences of warmer temperatures whilst helping to limit further rises by acting as carbon sinks.
To effectively harness the power of AI in the aviation sector, the industry should start to develop and adopt an AI ethical framework. In this event, our speakers will share their perspectives on the responsible application and the social values of AI in aviation for the future.

We have entered a new era where Artificial Intelligence (AI) enhances human decisions. Every industry is going through a significant transformation - the food industry is no different. Food innovation, mainly in flavour and ingredient innovation, which previously required significant manual research, can be accelerated much more efficiently with the help and proper use of Artificial Intelligence.
Recent times has shown rapid accelerations in companies adopting various technology-driven transformation strategies and tools. This move is widely agreed to be an urgent necessity to prevent disruption and obsoleteness to the company’s strategies and business models. The implementation and adaptation of these AI and Data systems and workflows to existing infrastructure is often a challenge, but many companies have risen up to the test and are succeeding. How do these companies adapt to the ever-changing landscape and ensure their workforce is able to stay relevant amidst the disruptions?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) promises to revolutionise our daily lives - from AI-powered advisors that help us make decisions when investing in the financial markets to AI-powered machines that serve our health or other needs. AI will also drive more efficient industrial processes, delivering smarter networks and better products and services at reduced costs. While these developments claim to improve our daily lives, they also present new challenges over privacy, data protection and ethics. Despite the discussion of these challenges being cross-sectoral, a sectoral-specific dialogue is also needed as the considerations, concerns, and solutions differ in each sector.
This Sectoral Dialogue is an annual initiative run by the Singapore Management University's Centre for AI and Data Governance. Every year, privacy and data protection concerning the development and use of AI is examined in a specific sector. This dialogue will begin with a roundtable with key stakeholders, followed by a Seminar with a panel of academics from different jurisdictions. This initiative aims to develop interdisciplinary and comparative cutting-edge research that contributes to this ongoing debate while providing sectoral-specific recommendations for tackling the challenges associated with privacy and data protection in the AI era.
This second Sectoral Dialogue presented with SGInnovate will focus on the privacy and data protection challenges of implementing AI in the healthcare sector. During the Roundtable session, academics, key industry leaders, and experts will discuss the issues relating to privacy and data protection that should be addressed to contribute to the responsible use of AI in healthcare. The discussion will also revolve around existing and proposed solutions, outstanding issues, and problems raised. The results from the Roundtable will form the basis for further research and study for a seminar projected to be held a couple of months after the Roundtable.

Morning Pitch is a pitching platform hosted by Deloitte Tohmatsu Venture Support. This platform helps startups form business alliances and partnerships with large corporations, corporate venture capitals and venture capital firms. The focus for this Morning Pitch is on AI and IoT.
These days, devices such as smartphones and smartwatches are commonly used for daily step count but did you know that the way one walks- the gait, reveals a lot more than just one’s fitness? Gait reveals an individual’s identity as well as physical attributes such as height and age. As such, this identifier can be used to secure smart devices, provide personalised services, and perhaps even detect walking abnormalities.

Originated in 2011 from Germany, the term Industry 4.0 encompasses “new technologies that combine the physical, digital and biological worlds, impacting all disciplines, economies and industries” as outlined by Professor Klaus Schwab in his book 'The Fourth Industrial Revolution'. Ten years on, the global manufacturing industry has been developing and adopting many Industry 4.0 innovations – industrial IoT, artificial intelligence, autonomous technologies, additive manufacturing, etc. It is worth recognising that Industry 4.0 is more than just technology-driven change. It is an opportunity for leaders, policy-makers, researchers and innovators to harness converging technologies that not only build smart factories but also augment human capabilities.
