DIGITAL GOVERNMENT: THE PATH TO REBOOT, REINVENT AND REVITALISE THE ASEAN ECONOMIES
ASEAN governments in 2022 are grappling with the 3S’s of change and challenges – security, supply chain crises, and sustainability – by harnessing digital enablers, in areas such as automation, RPA, digital currency, blockchain,privacy, cybersecurity, cloud, biometrics and AI. Also important is the ability to scale, update or add services quickly, and in tandem with this, the ability to upgrade employees’ competencies on new tools, rules, and processes.

This panel will discuss three areas where ASEAN governments can immediately benefit, through transformation initiatives:
•    Deepening trust in digital government services through innovation and regulatory enhancements
•    Reimagining the future of work and digital government service ecosystems
•    Using automation to increase public service efficiency and compliance in a regulatory environment that is grappling with developments in sustainability, cybersecurity, data privacy, AI ethics and governance

DIGITAL FINANCE SYMPOSIUM

Opening address bySenior Director, Value Chain Innovation Lab, NEC Asia Pacific

Technology has revamped the financial services industry and the way customers look at day-to-day banking needs. Through our expertise in creating and deploying cutting edge technology solutions, NEC aims to support financial services customers reimagine their business processes and enhance their customers’ experiences.

DIGITAL FINANCE (SESSION ONE): UNLOCKING THE FUTURE OF INVESTMENTS WITH DIGITAL ASSETS
In recent years, as the appetite to own and transact in digital assets has grown exponentially, corporations, governments and investors have been caught off guard by lack of regulatory guidance, cybersecurity loopholes, and fears surrounding interoperability. Yet, and despite ongoing scepticism from some quarters, interest in digital assets seems to grow unabated. In this session, we will discuss specific issues relating to this new asset class:

•    Complexities involving architecture, design, characteristics, technology, legal rights and IP rights
•    Cryptocurrency as a separate asset class
•    Impact on the global financial systems and regulatory processes
•    Working relationships within the extended financial service ecosystem and the value chain

Strategic Advisor, The Digital Banker

Investments & Insurance Platform Technology Lead, DBS

DIGITAL FINANCE (SESSION TWO): VAULTING TO PAPERLESS: THE NEXT-GEN MANDATE IN ASSET FINANCING
The rising preference towards digital services to transform business operation is no longer a novelty. The end-customer demands for fully digital, seamless and convenient services in on-boarding were taken to a new level, while the financial services providers could also leverage possibilities with cloud services in their system landscape. The ability to automate decision making, processing orders and back-office procedures, which has been targeted at for many years, remains key for operational efficiencies and is now further boosted by the end-to-end digital approach. In this session we will discuss:

•    Paperless financing as a cornerstone of digital transformation
•    KYC Real-time analytics on digital processing supporting business agility

Session 1

FORGING TRUST THROUGH DIGITAL IDENTITY IN A POST-PANDEMIC WORLD
Trust is the preeminent cornerstone for any digital transformation drive, from nationwide Digital Identity programme for citizens, to One ID for seamless travel, to personalized and remote banking transactions, which is accelerated by the global pandemic. Given the industry-leading reliability of NEC's biometrics technologies, we will explore its instrumentality in implementing Digital Identity. Beyond accuracy, what are some other considerations that are essential to Digital Identity and fostering trust? This workshop dives into some of them.

NO CODE ENTERPRISE INFORMATION MANAGEMENT PLATFORM
The advantages of no-code design are more than compelling: the ability to roll out applications in just days instead of months; significantly lower upfront costs and resources; greater control over adapting applications; and reduced cybersecurity exposures. Solutions built with no-code design, like NEC's WorkZone enterprise information management platform have a potential to significantly raise the game, in terms of efficiency. We explain how you can take advantage of the no-code revolution that is already underway.

Session 4

MULTIMODAL SENSING FOR REAL WORLD UNDERSTANDING
Visual monitoring through CCTV systems remains as one of the best ways to understand situations on the ground, because video footages can be understood easily by humans, which is why they have been used for decades and will continue to be used for years to come. In recent years, AI and Video Analytics technologies are incorporated both at the cameras and backend processing units to automatically detect things and events, and generate alerts for human to take actions. But Video-only solutions have its limitations, so additional modes of sensing is often needed together to form an integrated picture of the ground situation.

Session 5

BUILDING SUSTAINABLE RETAIL BUSINESS
COVID-19 created an upheaval of sorts in retail, with many brick-and-mortar retail outlets going bust or being forced to reinvent their operational models towards e-commerce. It remains to be seen if post-pandemic, store-based retail will make a comeback. Attend this workshop to get a glimpse into what's possible and how retailers can safeguard their resilience in these uncertain times.

Session 6

EXPLAINABLE AI
Explainability is the bridge to realising the full potential of AI-powered decision making. In many areas, human beings are holding back from deploying AI models because they do not yet trust it. That is partly because with innovations such as “black box” AI, even the scientists who created them are unable to explain how results are arrived at. With explainable AI, the complexity of AI-driven decision-making is 'decrypted' into formats understandable to humans. At this workshop, we will explain further.

IOT SENSEMAKING
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next stage in the evolution of the Internet, where ordinary devices are connected, integrated, and collate data to enhance efficiencies and optimize resource usage. The zettabytes of data that will soon be aggregated across millions of IoT sensors can contribute to valuable insights that stand to transform whole industries. This workshop will explore IoT sensemaking – the art and strategy of making sense of all the data, to make services and experiences more customer-centric.
