With the rise of home and building automation, sensor devices are deployed in various IoT applications for monitoring indoor environmental parameters, such as temperature, luminosity, humidity and air quality. An IoT application may contain hundreds and thousands of sensors, which generate an immense amount of data. The data quality is crucial as the generated data provides input for building optimization and even drives decisions- while poor sensor data quality may lead to bad decision-making.

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.
In this digital age, the concept of Open Innovation is to better use shared resources among corporates and startups to solve complex problems today. The manufacturing industry has thus recognised the need for more innovative solutions to keep up with the highly digitised world or widely termed Industry 4.0. Artificial Intelligence, advanced robotics, IIOT and digital twin have significantly reduced maintenance costs and quality improvement. To better pivot themselves to embrace these transformational technologies, manufacturers thus seek to collaborate with the ecosystem, particularly with startups.

3D food printing is an innovative way of manufacturing food products through an automated additive process. Typically, 3D printed food requires paste-like inputs such as purées, and similar to FDM printing, these feedstocks are deposited onto a surface to create a final food product, ready for consumption. This process is known as material extrusion, one of the most common processes for 3D food printing.
The use of 3D food printing technologies enables customisation of the food’s colour, texture and flavour, to replicate actual food and most importantly, the ability to customize nutrients. By being able to customise essential food nutrients, it is foreseeable that food 3D printing will become a valuable technology in the healthcare and eldercare sector.
In this session, we dive deeper into 3D printing applications in AgriFood, such as how 3D-printed food could be the next frontier in healthcare and sustainability efforts. Join the conversation with 3D food experts to learn more about the technology, and how it can be used for personalisation to meet the nutritional needs of end-users, some of whom includes dysphagia patients and the elderly.
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.

Innovations often require out of the box thinking. Businesses who try to reach successful competitors' benchmarks often fail to create solutions that set them apart. The failure is attributed to the restrictive perspective one usually have within one particular industry.
On the contrary, innovative complementary applications in other sectors can also be identified as opportunities. Given the scalability and applicability of deep technologies across different industries, looking beyond one's industry sector for suitable adaption of innovative solutions is becoming increasingly important.
In this webinar, we take a more in-depth look into the aviation industry in Singapore. Join us and find out how startups of different industries, can contribute to providing innovative solutions for air traffic management systems.
