Building Cities of Tomorrow

  • Keynote: Mixed Reality and what every business leader needs to know now
    Imagine bringing Pokemon Go live to the field. Mixed reality is a significant advancement of augmented reality and it has been around for a while now. It enables scenario planning and solve business problems by being able to see and foresee what is one trying to achieve. The mixed reality tech is expected to grow and will be used by businesses especially with the 5G rollout globally in 2020. And what does this mean for enterprises and businesses?
  • Keynote: Future of infrastructure
    Technology is transforming our urban landscapes and fundamentally altering how we live, work and play. Many have defined the future living space as combinations of digital city, the Internet of Things (IoT), and cloud computing. The data collected by hundreds of millions of IoT sensors will be calculated, analyzed, and managed with AI and machine learning in real time. All of these would require the backbone support of advanced infrastructure in a sustainable manner.
  • Keynote: Trends in infrastructure asset mapping & monitoring

  • Keynote: Unlocking the social and economic impact of geospatial data and analytics
    The geospatial industry is going through a period of rapid transformation. Increasingly, new companies are entering the arena. With them, they bring unique technologies and solutions capable of solving complex problems across societies. However, harnessing the full potential of these technologies requires an ecosystem that encourages the mass adoption of geospatial technologies and tools. 

    How can we as an industry build this together?

    This presentation will:
    • Highlight the technical and business challenges currently facing our industry
    • Discuss the barriers we will need to break to truly democratise access to multiple geospatial data sources and analytics through an integrated open environment to developers and by extension to all users.
    • Explore how we can work in collaboration to break these barriers 

  • Panel: Bringing technology together to bridge the infrastructure
    The world population is expected to continue to increase in 2020 and governments around the world are beginning to plan and develop smart cities, as many people are moving to live in cities. This is both an excellent and challenging opportunity for the many. What are the upcoming anticipated tech trends that could deliver on these projects of the future?

In Focus: Insurance & Real Estate

  • Keynote: Benchmarking open geospatial data
    An increasing amount of geospatial data is becoming open, benefiting a large number of use cases across industry and academia. Today in many countries around the world releasing open geo data is a rule rather than exception. At the same time, volunteered geoinformation is proliferating and it is indispensable to myriads of actors in the geospatial community. Academia plays an important role here: several research groups are developing methods for monitoring their quality and investigating usability. This talk focuses on developing instruments for the assessment of the availability and quality of open geodata on buildings, a research carried out at the Urban Analytics Lab in Singapore.
  • Keynote: Role of geospatial data in disaster response support and insurance sector
    In the insurance sector, detailed data provides and creates better predictions and more accurate customer quotes. Yet potential purchasers often don’t know the information needed for rigorous risk assessments, such as the distance of their house from volcano. With geospatial technology, the insurance sector is set to embrace the profound benefits.
  • Keynote: Smart real estate
    The real estate industry has been a long and traditional one. With the recent tech disruption especially GIS and advanced spatial analysis which benefit all parties involved, the real estate industry is seeing a refreshing revival with real-time experience.
  • Keynote: Better insurance data with location intelligence
    In the insurance sector, detailed data provides and creates better predictions and more accurate customer quotes. Yet potential purchasers often don’t know the information needed for rigorous risk assessments, such as the distance of their house from volcano. With geospatial technology, the insurance sector is set to embrace the profound benefits.

Mobility & Transport

  • Keynote: AI powered GIS Data: reshaping asset management, making sense of mobility
    Imagine hundreds of thousands of vehicles, travelling along their regular routes while surveying the road, detecting road infrastructure assets and movement around the city, enhancing your GIS platform with near real-time datasets. This is fast becoming a reality. Harnessing the power of millions of journeys from passenger and fleet vehicles on the road, road asset and mobility data is being captured and turned it into relevant, up-to-date GIS layers for local governments, transportation authorities, utility companies, and businesses. Up-to-date GIS data is critical to the successful management and operation of cities. Highly refreshed datasets of near-misses, pedestrian and bike mobility, road assets, potholes and more can all be collected and incorporated into your GIS platform.
  • Keynote: Location Tech - What's next? / Ultra wideband (UWB)
    A case study sharing
  • Panel: Autonomous everything: The race is on
    As innovations in autonomous vehicles continue to grow, it's clear to see that geospatial technology is the basis for successful navigation. Manufacturers race to study what mapping information are necessary to access and how to obtain those data as the whole industry looks to be transformed especially for the connected generations to come.
