Introducing AI, the new clinic assistant
Smart city convenience: simplifying citizen experiences with AI
The test of a technology’s value is if the user has to do less or more. AI can take citizen services to a new level, offering driverless vehicles, more personalised services and calculating Covid-19 risk automatically.
This session will explore how AI will play a key role in the success of smart city projects and whether they can make the public services frustration-proof.
The pandemic has put healthcare workers under immense stress, but AI can help. Speakers will discuss how AI can reduce the manual and human workload, taking over manual tasks. Whether it's speeding up x-ray analytics, answering phones, or predicting illnesses, AI is the newest member of the clinic staff.
Speakers: A/prof Tan Cher Heng,
Setiaji, Dr Zhiyan Fu, Javed Ali
Speakers: Arune Matelyte,
Calum Handforth, Rushi Ramachandrappa, Michael Hoo
A classroom of one: Personalising the student experience with AI
The number of students in a class has long been used as a metric for the attention paid to students. But AI can change that, as it can foster and encourage the uniqueness of each student. It can personalise the student journey, focusing them on areas of improvement and abandoning one-size-fits-all approaches.
Speakers: Prof Chen Wenli,
Anna Korpi, Ibhraim Bashir, Dr. Wageeh Shukry Hassan, Raja Azmi Adam
16:45 - 17:45

Keynote: How to secure the government of the future
10:00 - 11:00
The great migration: Securing the move to Cloud
Governments know that the cloud is powerful, but they are still hesitant to fully commit.
This session will explore the common concerns around the cloud, and what can be done to create a secure migration.
The speed of digital transformation means that governments can't keep their data on premises forever. When it comes to change, if not now, then when?
Speakers: Lim May-Ann, Shaofei Huang, Akanksha Bilani, Tang Min Fai, Dennis Lui, Maria Victoria Castro, Dennis Lui
11:00 - 12:00
Defending critical systems
When critical infrastructure is under threat, lives are at stake. The cybersecurity experts responsible for national security will share insights into the cyber threats that are challenging governments.
Sharing insights from past attacks, these experts will discuss the next steps for the highest level of cyber protection.
Speakers: Dr. Amirudin Abdul, Amit Sharma, Tim Brown, Anthony Lim
14:00 - 15:00
Securing the digital ID
The digital realm opens up boundless possibilities for governments to speed up response, improve services and reach underserved parts of society. As public services shift online, how can agencies ensure citizens have a trusted way of interacting and transacting with government?
This session will explore the possibilities a national digital ID brings, and how governments can secure them.
Speakers: Debashis Nag, Colin Wallis, Ozzeir Khan, Anna Hirschfeld, Scott Hesford
15:30 - 16:30
Securing the safety net
Protecting healthcare beyond its four walls
Governments can act as the safety net when citizens need support. The last thing citizens need in these situations is cybersecurity issues.
This session will explore how welfare and support agencies can securely share, analyse and act on data to support citizens in need.
We are on the cusp of a dramatic shift in how healthcare is delivered. Delivering remote care is reliant upon IoT, data sharing and robotics. But this shift creates new security risks. Healthcare leaders and experts will discuss how to secure remote devices and hospital systems to protect patient information in this new era.
From the bottom up - building cybersecurity skills in education
In the modern world, age is no barrier to the use of high-tech devices. Schools have the responsibility of upskilling students and staff, while protecting the digital learning journey.
Speakers: Diane Turner, Heli Tiirmaa- Klaar, Max Neo, Jed Horner
Speakers: Tan Li San,
Carmen Raal, Niklas Eklöf
