Ocean of Opportunities: Challenge Roadshow

Presented by Symphony Creative Solutions. Partnered with SGInnovate

The shipping industry has long been known as a traditional and conservative one. Containerisation has been around for 60 years, but has remained largely as it first started. 90% of your everyday needs arrives via shipping. The shipping industry is huge and is full of opportunities; come dive into this world of shipping! 

Some aspects of containerisation is still heavily reliant on paper and manual processes. Have an idea on how to simplify tedious processes? Maybe you just want an avenue to push yourself to excel and see how far your developer skills can take you? Or maybe you are interested in IoT or RPA for shipping and have a pet project that you’ll like to see being used in the industry rather than just in your dreams? Come join us the upcoming challenge event this April.

  • Blockchain Evening on Smart Contracts - A Legal & Dispute Resolution Analysis

    Smart contracts may revolutionise commercial transactions insofar as they create legally binding relations and are enforceable in a suitable dispute resolution forum. The use of computer programming is likely to give rise to technologically complex disputes that the courts of justice and non-specialised alternative dispute resolution service providers will not be equipped to handle. We suggest the creation of a Blockchain Dispute Resolution Authority to administer distributed ledger technology and smart contracts related disputes, pursuant to industry tailored rules of procedure and with the assistance of technological and legal experts.
