MIT Technology Review and Koelnmesse have reimagined EmTech Asia in digital format. Now in its seventh edition, EmTech Asia drives intelligent conversations about emerging technologies that matter and serves as a platform for collaboration and networking between like-minded individuals.

The decision to organise a digital version has been made to observe health and safety requirements and to ensure that all participants and staff at EmTech Asia remain safe at home amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

To make EmTech Asia conducive to viewing online, the event will be presented with an accelerated schedule that takes place between Tuesday, 4 August 2020 and Thursday, 6 August 2020, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. daily (Singapore time, GMT +8). The schedule enables participants to experience content online that was curated for the live event and encourages international participation from several time zones.

All content will migrate online, including presentations from experts, moderated discussions, question-and-answer forums, and attendee networking. Plans for the new event format are coming together in real time, and the reshaped agenda will be announced in the coming weeks.

Over 40 influential leaders and innovators will be speaking at EmTech Asia, including:

  • Pam Melroy, Former NASA Space Shuttle Commander
  • Peter Norvig, Director of Research, Google
  • Shelley Peterson, Principal Investigator - Augmented & Mixed Reality, Lockheed Martin
  • Simon Lui, Director and Expert AI Scientist, QQ Music, Tencent Music Entertainment
  • Toby Walsh, Scientia Professor of Artificial Intelligence, University of New South Wales
  • Mary L. Gray, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research
  • Eugene Fitzgerald, CEO, Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology
  • Graham Ruby, Principal Investigator, Calico Life Sciences
  • …and many more
