Systems, Science, Technology and Policy in Singapore
This seminar examines Singapore as a system and shows how Singapore addresses societal challenges through the intersection of systems thinking, science and technology and policy to bring happiness, prosperity and progress for the nation. Examples in national security, social development and economic development and the Smart Nation will be highlighted. The success of Singapore’s Smart Nation Initiative, as part of the 4th Industrial Revolution, will depend on the effective integration of policy, science and technology and people and organisations at all levels.
