Building a Knowledge-Based Society:
Stories from Singapore’s Smart Nation Development [Vortrag in Englisch]

Singapore Smart Nation is the national effort of Singaporeans, businesses and government to transform the way people in Singapore live, work and play using digital technologies powered by innovation in many areas in respond to different changing needs. For example, in Singapore, the Smart Nation initiative has been established to transform waste management practices across the country. Technological advancements and the development of core government policy initiatives help to ensure the sustainable management and efficient use of the country’s waste materials. As part of this, Singapore also reduces the amount of waste generated in an effort to create a more circular driven economy. Technology is applied across all sectors of life, systematically and extensively, to improve the lives of our people. In this talk, we will hear some examples on how the smart nation initiatives have been translated into public and business practices, and how citizens are involved in the effort.
