NAMIC x SGInnovate: 3D Printing with Generative Design

Presented by SGInnovate and NAMIC

Generative Design incorporates design work with a combination of computing processes and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to solve engineering challenges. With technology, engineers are no longer limited to the constraints of one's imagination. Instead, engineers will have access to multiple solutions that the human mind could never conceive on its own.
In manufacturing, the application of Generative Design brings great value. For example, manufacturing new parts and components without any notion of how something is made or used often has to go through a long series of refining processes. Generative Design allows for a series of simulations to be built into the design process to identify the optimal solution in the manufacturing process, thus drastically saving time and workload. 3D printing then further supplements the process by providing the flexibility and capability to produce affordable and fast hardware to achieve the desired end-product. Working in tandem with each other, it is no wonder that such technologies are making waves in the manufacturing industry.
Join us in this event co-organised with NAMIC to understand how Generative Design and its application with 3D printing will pave the way to the future of manufacturing. Our esteemed speakers would be sharing more on practical applications of Generative Design and the advantages of its adoption.

Speakers' Profiles:
Lin Kayser, CEO, Hyperganic

Hyperganic CEO Lin Kayser's entrepreneurial journey stretches back three decades. In the early 1990s, he joined industrial-tech startup ARADEX to disrupt the field of high-performance industrial machine control systems with PC technology.
In 2000, Kayser and Hyperganic CTO Michael Gallo created IRIDAS, which led the digital transformation of the global film industry. Kayser and Gallo provided the software that powered the first digital cinema in the world for the postproduction of The Matrix movies. The company quickly became the industry standard for GPU-based imaging processing. IRIDAS was acquired by Adobe in 2011.
Kayser is an active mentor and board member in the German startup scene with a focus on radical innovation, sustainability and diversity.
