HPC-AI in Design & Engineering Track

Date: 25 February 2020, Tuesday
Time: 1.30PM – 6PM
Venue: Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, Level 3


Companies, industries and governments need to transform their processes and operations in order to fully benefit from Industry 4.0 and digitalisation technologies. By 2030, ASEAN is projected to be the fourth largest single market in the world, coming behind the US, China and the EU – being the fastest growing middle class in the world, with a strong, dynamic and tech-savvy workforce. Research and innovation in advanced manufacturing and engineering is also a key thrust under Singapore’s Research, Innovation and Enterprise 2020 (RIE2020) plan.

Singapore has been driving technology innovation, knowledge transfers and adoption across industries. To name a few:

  • Future of Manufacturing (FoM) initiative – empower enterprises, big or small, to successfully transit to smart manufacturing environments powered by data and automation technologies.
  • Pharma Innovation Programme Singapore (PIPS) – bring together Singapore’s public sector research capabilities and key global players in the pharma industry to transform the manufacturing operations and technologies of the industry for greater efficiencies.
  • Hyper-Personalisation Line Programme (HPL) – focus on personalised filling of products and customisation of orders in brownfield plants or in-house distribution centres equipped with digital connectivity capabilities. Aims to incorporate hyper-personalisation capabilities through end to end connectivity starting from smart batch size one filling, to the use of advanced robotics capable of high mix, high speed and varying volume production.

In this afternoon, please join us as Mr Harshit Sharma, Digital Transformation Analyst from Lux Research where he will be addressing the global landscape on Industry 4.0, covering areas in Technological Advancements and Digitalisation. Also hear from our distinguished industry collaborators as they shared the path from stepping out of the traditional way in running the business to gear towards digitalisation, and learn how they apply high performance computing and AI to transform their organizations, improve work efficiency, and create new products, services and values for impact.

This conference track will cover 2 segments – Design and Engineering. See how HPC and AI empowers business owners and organisations with the right tools and applications to shorten product design processes and the speed to market.
