  • Live Long and Prosper: Ageing in Place

    According to a report by the United Nations on World Population Prospects, it is estimated that by 2050, one in six people worldwide will be over the age of 65. However, in Singapore's context, one in four people will be over 65 by 2030 - exponentially earlier and higher than the global predicted average.  With the worldwide population living longer lives, what are the ways science and technology can ensure an extended period of good or better health? 
     
    The COVID-19 pandemic has spurred innovations and research into improving the ageing experience for older adults. Find out from our experts as they share what it would take to be healthy for longer and to age in place by keeping one's independence in the comfort of one's home.

  • Leaders’ Dialogue: Transforming Healthcare with Deep Tech Innovations

    In response to the COVID-19 as the most pressing healthcare challenge of our time, the global science and technology innovation ecosystem has been collaborating and accelerating radical solutions to the pandemic and better meet the future's healthcare needs.
     
    In Singapore, Deep Tech innovations have played a critical role to help manage the pandemic, such as Biofourmis’ AI-powered remote monitoring platform to detect early deterioration in COVID-19 patients, and also the Digital Health Passport, the first blockchain-powered solution to issue secure, tamper-proof digital COVID-19 medical records at scale with 100,000+ records issued and 4,000,000+ verifications performed. Similarly, health innovations across India have been growing fast in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the “India’s Healthtech Landscape In A Post-Covid-19 World Report 2020” by DataLabs, the size of the HealthTech market in India is likely to increase to US$21 billion by 2025 from US$5.2 billion in 2019.
     
    In this Leaders’ Dialogue, our industry leaders from Singapore and India will be discussing the impact of Deep Tech innovations on the future of healthcare and how startups, hospitals and other stakeholders may collaborate to accelerate the process.

  • AI-Powered Solutions in Healthcare: A Precision Medicine Approach to Cancer Therapy

    In line with Singapore’s National Artificial Intelligence (AI) Strategy, a study done in 2018 found that healthcare professionals in Singapore were found to be ranked third globally when it comes to using AI for clinical diagnosis. However, more healthcare innovators and practitioners are now pushing the limits to what AI in the healthcare industry can do. With the development of novel AI models for disease prediction and management, companies have shown that through innovation and collaboration, there is an opportunity for AI to be a useful tool in more ways than one.
     
    One avenue that AI in healthcare has shown promise in is immunotherapy for cancer treatment. AI platforms have shown promise when it comes to site activation, rapid identification, as well as drug screening and discovery. With cancer cases rising over the years in Singapore and other countries around the world, such platforms could give healthcare professionals an edge in the global fight against cancer.
     
    At this session, we look at how AI-powered solutions could be used to address major challenges in drug discovery and precision medicine. Join us at our event as we hear from industry experts on how the healthcare industry could leverage AI platforms in immunotherapy and how this could be a potential game-changer for cancer therapy.

  • Microbes as Therapeutics

    The importance of the microbiome to human health has gradually been elucidated in recent years. The collective activities of the microbes – their metabolism, their interactions among different species, and their interactions with the host's immune system – play important roles in maintaining the health status of multiple systems, including the gastrointestinal, metabolic, and the neurological systems. Since the early 2000s, there had been multiple startups and non-profit clinical projects investigating the use of microbiome components as therapeutics for various diseases. With the development of synthetic biology, novel methods of applying genetically engineered microbes to specifically target certain disease mechanisms are also being developed.
