About the Forum

Enter the Industry 4.0.

The World Economic Forum’s The Future of Jobs report predicts that with the current speed that disruptive innovations – artificial intelligence and machine learning, robotics, 3D printing, genetics and biotechnology, IoT and smart systems – are impacting markets, a net of 5.1 million jobs could be lost by 2020.

Yet, a global 2014 PwC study also showed that the most innovative companies are predicting growth of 62.2% over the next five years, against the global average of 35.4%, and with even the least innovative companies predicting growth of 20.7%. An overwhelming 51% of the executives also agreed that in 2019, innovation will be a “competitive necessity” for their organization.

Here are some predictions for 2020 (Sources from Quantumrun):

  • Global number of Internet-connected devices reaches 50,050,000,000
  • Cancer treatments begin the same day as diagnosis
  • World’s first robot Olympics held in Japan
  • New Zealand’s “Rebuilding of Christchurch” is fully completed
  • Autonomous vehicles take up 5% of global car sales

Where does Singapore stand in the midst of the global race? How do you leverage your existing capabilities and resources to become a robust and dynamic player, and eventually emerge as a leader?

The Disruptive Innovation Summit gathers senior leaders, experts and policymakers who will explore, examine, and discuss the ways to emerge as a winner in this global race.

It is no longer a question of “IF” disruptive innovations will affect the economy, but “when”, and that “when” is now.

Book your seats now and get ahead in the fourth industrial revolution.

See you at the Summit.
