In a research facility at the southwest of Singapore, more than a hundred researchers and engineers are testing, experimenting and trialling technologies from artificial intelligence, to robotics and fluid dynamics.
The goal for British manufacturer Dyson’s new S$587 million research and development centre set up in Singapore earlier this year is clear: Develop new technology that will allow the company to leapfrog its rivals in the innovation race by integrating hardware, electronics and software.
In a speech made during the centre’s opening, Sir James Dyson, founder and chief engineer, pointed to similarities between Singapore and the company – a mutual appreciation for talent and ambition for the future – as factors influencing the company’s decision to house its most advanced research facility here.
Today, Dyson is just one of dozens of multinational manufacturing firms that have partnered Singapore because of our drive to innovate for the future.
Innovating to stay ahead of the pack has always been in Singapore’s DNA. Singapore has embraced challenges and developed innovative solutions to overcome constraints in water, land, and talent.
