The Festival of Disruptors
Synopsis

The best disruptive thinking, dynamic live pitch event, performances, discussions and ultimate networking - this year’s Festival of Disruptors shares stories from the world’s brightest minds and most disruptive influencers at the beautiful JW Marriott Singapore Hotel South Beach.

Meet National Geographic Explorer and Research Scientist Dr Albert Yu-Min Lin half man, half robot following a car accident in 2016. Born from this experience is the Center for Human Frontiers at the University of California San Diego, which explores the boundaries of the human machine interface and our understanding of humanity itself. 

Hear from TED Fellow and world-renowned designer Elaine Yan Ling Ng as she explores whether we can code nature to design materials that mimic nature’s most impressive characteristics and calls for design as a disruptive force essential to innovation.

Bus Uncle chatbot creator, Abhilash Murthy shares how a simple experiment, to satiate a developer’s curiosity, grew to become a social media icon loved by more than 30,000 residents in Singapore. And how Bus Uncle’s disruption of the Singapore commute is propelling messaging to the frontier of technology for marketers.

AI practitioner Annabelle Kwok discusses what AI really means for the future of business and the way that businesses operate in society?  The founder of The Smart Cow speaks about her experience in developing custom AI solutions for clients in Asia and weighs in on its promise of a smarter future.

Futurist Benjamin Butler, who successfully predicted the coming to power of Donald Trump and Brexit, environmentalist and celebrity Nadya Hutagalung and “Green Man” Matthias Gelber, explore the possibility of long term wealth creation and the sustainability of our planet.
