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.

Chair’s opening remarks

09:10

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

09:40

Data science in logistics

  • Important know-hows to use advanced data processing technologies (e.g. AI and Neural Networking) to provide the best service for clients
  • Technology platforms to exchange and manage semi-structured data-flows inside supply chain
  • How to move the supply chain process from reactive to proactive with real-time data?
  • How can the industry advance the use of data analytics beyond its nascent stage?
10:10

How blockchain technology is revolutionising energy APAC and global energy industry

It was found that the majority of asset owners are actually paying more than what they need in running their businesses. With the help of block chain, a decentralised, secured platform can be created where the customer demand can be more accurately predicted, and surplus energy can be resell into the free market at a fair price. This helps to create happy customer and prevent energy wastage in as part of the building of smart cities.
