A digitally-enabled autonomous future: How technology will change the way we think and work

Julie Olszewski

Making sense of data analytics: How big data is transforming healthcare, R&D and manufacturing

The healthcare industry is facing a multitude of challenges. New diseases are emerging daily, and they are no longer confined by geographical boundaries. The rapidly aging population is also another cause for concern especially in Asia. However, the cure to today’s healthcare challenges no longer rests only on the shoulders of healthcare practitioners. Keynote speaker, Julie Olszewski, shares insights into the trends of the healthcare industry. She will touch on the challenges of today’s healthcare industry and how big data and analytics are key to overcoming them. Delegates will also gain an understanding of how different sectors can leverage data to improve patient care, medical manufacturing, clinical trials, and disease prevention.

Modernising Asia's manufacturing landscape: Key considerations & actions

Most small to medium size Asia manufacturing companies have lesser financial capabilities as compared to their peers, thus any upgrading decisions require serious consideration. This panel will address some of the key issues manufacturers need to consider before taking the step to adopt modern techniques in their new and existing facilities. Key topics include:
  • What are the key considerations when engaging a vendor specialised in automation and 3D?
  • How do manufacturers maximise their ROI from upgrading existing facilities?
  • Understanding perspective of SMEs and how to build an ecosystem to support the landscape
  • Strategies required to move away from the mind-set of being a “just-another-contractor” to a value-adding, “co-developer”?

Chair’s opening remarks

Hiroshi Saijou

Moving beyond traditional manufacturing businesses: Building the future of Yamaha Motor

Partha Dutta

An inclusive approach for a Big Data and Analytics strategy

The volume, variety, and velocity (pun intended) with which computational algorithms, tools, platforms, services, etc. are being developed in the Big Data and Analytics space that it can be a challenge for a business to define a robust, if not the best, investment strategy. Making this choice is a business decision as well as a technology decision and one has to consider various granular issues in order to derive a good answer. This presentation will focus on the specific topic of the need for balancing between using existing off-the-shelf solutions and investing in exploratory works that are still in the incubation stage, and where a carefully constructed synergy between the two could achieve best results. A disclaimer is that the points made in this talk are drawn from the speaker’s personal experience of working in multiple industries and not specific to any organisation’s Big Data and Analytics strategy.
