Minister’s Speech

IoT, digital and intelligent technologies are now inextricable from our social and economic fabric and are for the most part beneficial. But recent events have also showed how they can impact the conduct of business, government and even personal lives call for urgent attention.  As concerns shared by countries and societies, there is a need for concerted efforts, initiatives, cooperation across agencies, creativity and innovative mechanisms to better diagnose and match needs with solutions. Minister’s speech may also encompass what this means for individuals and their roles and responsibilities in how Singapore evolves towards becoming a Digital Society and Economy.

Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister-in-Charge of the Smart Nation initiative, Singapore 

9:40 am - 10:00 am

Keynote: The Network in Action

For years excitement has been building around the Internet of Things and its promise to change the way we live and interact with technology. But IoT is a means to an end, and not an end in itself. This new era will blur the lines between humanity and technology. The Internet of Things exists to feed the reactive network.

I want it, now. For every business professional and consumer, in every culture and across each continent, we have become impulse-driven in our daily life, at play and at work. The network has ushered us through the information age, and then the social age. Its next great challenge is to reflexively serve our needs, often before we even know these needs exist. The network must understand what we want, and deliver exactly that within the precious seconds of fleeting desire.

To do so this requires two innovations: knowing us deeply and delivering rapidly. For IoT to truly succeed it must be everywhere, and the network-first mindset plays a critical role in making this happen.

Diomedes Kastanis, Head of IoT, Singtel

10:00 am - 10:20 am
