On September 18th 2018, we had to chance to once again work with Don Tapscott – one of the world’s leading authorities on the impact of technology on business and society, to beam him to the Deep Tech Summit in Singapore hosted by SGInnovate.
SGInnovate helps launch, prove and scale ‘deep tech’ products borne out of science research. With the resources and capabilities available in Singapore to tackle hard problems that matter to people around the world, SGInnovate enables ambitious and capable people to build ‘technology-intensive’ products borne out of scientific research while utilizing the full power of the Singapore ecosystem to achieve this mission.

The inaugural Deep Tech Summit brought together leading thinkers and industry experts that specialized in fields such as blockchain, venture building, medtech and artificial intelligence. Mr Tapscott was a keynote speaker for the event and spoke on The Blockchain Revolution, how the technology underlying Bitcoin is changing business, money and the world.
With the help of our holographic telepresence technology, Mr Tapscott was able to appear live as a life-sized hologram, all while being located an ocean away in Toronto. He was able to see and interact with the audience just as if he were physically in the room, saving a great deal of time and costs on travel. The entire audience received his speech very well with many praising the technology.
