Healthcare AI has shown great potential in diagnosing and combating diseases such as diabetic retinopathy. Currently, to train a high performing deep learning model, a large number of high quality, accurately labeled data, as well as substantial computing resources, are needed. These data are unlikely to be found especially during early phases of a disease outbreak. Moreover, deep learning models can give overly confident predictions on out-of-distribution data, which may be misleading to the diagnosticians. We will describe two techniques to enable rapid identification of novel diseases like COVID-19 under limited data. The first technique addresses the challenge of label scarcity, and makes use of a conditional generative flow and a classifier for conditional synthetic data generation. The second technique helps detecting out-of-distribution inputs to a deep learningbased classification model. The model uses modern anomaly/outlier detection algorithms to analyze the outputs of a supervised classification model in order to identify potentially novel diseases. We present case studies using real-world medical image data and show the efficacy of proposed techniques.

When can Singapore Welcome Her First Nobel Laureate?
In the latest itineration of the Highly Cited Researchers (HCR) list, Clarivate has identified 81 HCRs with a Singapore primary affiliation. 88% of the Highly Cited Papers published by these HCRs were when they were affiliated to a Singapore organization, rather than their previous works elsewhere. This means the local research ecosystem has supported the creation of these impactful works over the past decade.
With the high number of HCRs from Singapore, the next milestone to look forward is for Singapore to soon welcome her first Nobel Laureate. To that end, Clarivate has since 2002 released an annual list of global researchers that are “Nobel Class”. Dubbed as Citation Laureates, to date 59 of them went on to win the Nobel prize, 29 of them within 2 years of being listed.
Join our webinar with Professor Andy Hor, Professor Barry Halliwell, David Pendlebury and Inn Beng Lee as they walk through and unveil insights of Singapore journey towards achieving research excellence, and global recognition of research impact.

Join us at Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s (NP) inaugural virtual Robotics Symposium to experience how science, technology and innovation can offer solutions to overcome some of the challenges brought forth by the pandemic.
Jointly organised by NP’s Robotics Research & Innovation Centre and our industry partners, this half-day symposium will focus on the latest innovations and best practices in robotics, and how it can transform your organisation.
This is a free webinar on 10 September 2021
Time: 10am onward

AMR designers continue to be challenged to find effective sensors for obstacle detection and SLAM. Designers often combine LiDAR with stereo vision, resulting in an effective but complex and expensive solution. A trending solution from sensor manufacturers is the combination of sensor technologies in the same body to provide a more efficient sensor fusion. Often this forces the combination to be reduced to the sensing field of the stereo camera which traditionally has a smaller horizontal sensing field vs. LiDAR.
In this webinar, you will learn about new solutions combining large field-of-view stereo vision and active projection to provide a new and improved option for AMR navigation. The webinar will discuss the benefits of a 360° stereo vision sensor family with the addition of active projection to allow operation in complete darkness and with improved depth accuracy. It will show how vertical field-of-view can also be exploited so obstacles above or below the traditional LiDAR sensing plane can be detected.
In addition to learning about the solutions, the webinar will also highlight ways to take advantage of these solutions and will provide techniques for integration into existing navigation stacks including ROS & ROS2.
Attendees of this webinar will learn:
Major technological innovation is driving substantial automotive industry changes in the Asia Pacific region and beyond.

As the world prepares for a new reality in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, changing user needs and ESG considerations can accelerate the next round of AV development and deployment around the world. This presentation covers KPMG’s Autonomous Vehicle Readiness Index (AVRI), which looks at AV readiness across 30 countries and serves as a guide to AV development and deployment for policymakers and businesses. Attendees will gain a better understanding of:
Deploying autonomous vehicles within any community or environment comes with unique challenges and opportunities. Currently, across the world there are little to no national frameworks when it comes to regulations or policy related to AVs, leaving it up to individual jurisdictions to determine their best path forward. This has fundamental impacts on safety and infrastructure requirements. Safety standards are very much still evolving, prompting the question: how do we ensure safe operating environments and plan for this process from a regulatory perspective? Key to our mission is integrating evolving technology and various applications and interactions with existing infrastructure, all while instilling public confidence.

Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) business models have found favor with both providers and users of advanced robotics systems. Attend this online session on July 21st to learn how companies are employing RaaS models business , along with the various business, legal, technical and operational aspects of the approach.
One general trend among technology providers – including robotics companies – is the migration away from selling products to selling services. For some types of robotic firms, a business model that relies largely on hardware sales is simply untenable. As such, service-oriented business models are becoming more common in the robotics sector where the high upfront capital expenditures for systems and risk aversion to new technologies on part of potential customers can impede growth. In this webinar, the business, legal, technical and operational aspects of the Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) business model will be analyzed and discussed. Examples of companies embracing and successfully employing a RaaS approach will be provided.
This webinar will cover:
· RaaS Benefits for End-User Companies
· RaaS Benefits for Robotics Solution Providers
· Challenges For Robotics Companies
· RaaS Business Models
· RaaS Technical Models
· Commercial Examples & Case Studies

Has the pandemic greatly accelerated technological advancements such as robotics adoption? The answer is an evident yes, as we start to observe their presence significantly in the area of healthcare.
Locally, robots have been developed for nasal swab tests in the bid to reduce risk for healthcare workers. Robots have also been used to speed up the processes of temperature taking, scanning for safe entry, and effectively helping to disinfect large, common spaces.
In this virtual session, our panel made up founders , Prof Chen I-Ming (Transforma Robotics) and Dr Zhang Yanliang (Weston Robot) from the robotics industry explores this trend of integrating such high technology into our day-to day life through the pandemic, the major challenges faced, and how robots can continue to help us post-pandemic.
