Like many other countries, Singapore faces evolving healthcare demands, driven by a rapidly ageing population and increased prevalence of chronic diseases. Precision Medicine (PM) is an innovative approach. Scientists and doctors consider the patient’s genetic background, lifestyle, and environmental factors to pre-empt the development of diseases and optimise treatments. The National Precision Medicine (NPM) programme is a whole-of-government approach to explore how PM should be best deployed in Singapore to drive research insights, clinical innovation, and economic growth. Through NPM, we hope to contribute to Singaporeans living healthier lives and its eventual impact across other Asian countries.
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.
