  • NAMIC x SGInnovate: 3D Printing with Generative Design

    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.

  • Singapore’s Readiness for Autonomous Vehicle Adoption

    According to KPMG’s Autonomous Vehicles Readiness Index’s 2020 edition, Singapore was ranked first in the world for the level of preparedness for autonomous vehicles. Since the start of 2019, Singapore has taken significant steps towards encouraging testing, development, and the adoption of AVs, with several autonomous vehicle R&D trials already underway.
     
    In this event, we dive deeper into Singapore’s readiness for autonomous vehicles by discussing factors such as safety, infrastructure, privacy, and regulatory frameworks. We will also be exploring ways to harness the full potential of autonomous vehicle technology to create a sustainable and reliable transport system for Singapore.

  • Opportunities for Deep Tech and Adjacent Technologies in AgriFood

    As the AgriFood industry sees more interest from corporates, startups and investors, we believe it is a great time and of great interest to discuss how technologies across different industries and ecosystems may be repurposed and applied to accelerate the progression of the AgriFood industry. This means to say that adjacent technology and science domains such as Blockchain and AI from Health or Manufacturing industries can deliver valuable innovations that can be repurposed in the AgriFood industry. By learning more about the different types of innovative technologies, the industry could be exposed to a vast range of possibilities and potential growth.

  • Reverse Pitch: Supply Chain and Logistics

    Artificial Intelligence, advanced robotics, blockchain technology, big data and the Internet of Things transform the supply chain and logistics industry every day. To better meet new market demands and achieve operational excellence, supply chains of the future need to be more agile, sustainable and resilient, particularly following the Covid-19 pandemic. Supply chain professionals have recognised that to solve the industry’s most pertinent problems; they need to transform their business models, adopt digital technologies, and collaborate with the ecosystem, particularly with startups.
     
    Presented by SGInnovate and EDB, the by-invitation-only Reverse Pitch event series aims to spotlight market demands for frontier technologies to better inform the startup community to support their go-to-market efforts. At these Reverse Pitch events, corporate leaders will present their problem statements and innovation needs that they are open to working with startups on. This session on Supply Chain and Logistics will feature stories from three leading supply chain companies – Bolloré Logistics, Schneider Electric, and Unilever Foundry.
     
    The Reverse Pitch series is part of SGInnovate and EDB’s Open Innovation partnership, with the aims to connect open innovation leaders in Singapore and the region, promote corporate innovation projects and adoption, and catalyse corporate-startup collaborations.

  • Privacy-aware Analytics for Human Attributes from Images

    Analysing human attributes such as emotions, gender and age in images and videos is very important for many applications. Many existing methods perform well by utilising information from human faces. However, face images raise serious privacy concerns as they reveal people’s identity.

  • Biofabrication: Introducing Sustainable Biomaterials

    Most of the focus of sustainable manufacturing is on reducing the use of disposables and single-use-plastics. However, what if sustainability starts at the production and not the consumption stage? Another form of waste that tends to be overlooked is during the production of materials. A report by Forbes stated that the apparel and textile industry produces 10% of global carbon emissions and is the second-largest polluter in the world after oil. In particular, the leather industry has been categorised as one of the highest polluting industries due to its high waste production in the forms of solid waste from leather production processes and sludge from tannery wastewater treatment.

  • The Promise of Deep Tech: Manufacturing in the Age of Sustainability

    Sustainability has become the number one topic to address in the industrial world – research by Our World in Data shows that the industry and manufacturing sectors contribute to almost a third of the global greenhouse gas emissions. To tackle this, a UN report says that CO2 emissions must be cut nearly in half by 2030 because the world is on a fast track to consume four Earths' worth of resources by 2050.
