Emerging technologies, often referred to as disruptive technologies in the sphere of Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) have the potential to improve quality of life and societal well-being, drive economic growth as well as increase productivity and efficiency. Several countries are already adopting and implementing various 4IR-related initiatives such as Smart and Future Cities; Intelligent Integrated Transportation and Mobility Systems; Healthcare Management and Society Support System; and Digital Government, Support Services and Content Delivery System. Towards increasing awareness among member States on access as well as application of 4IR technologies for achieving SDGS, APCTT is organizing MESTECC-APCTT Fourth Industrial Revolution Conference 2018 - “New and Emerging Technologies in Achieving Sustainable Development Goals in partnership with the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment & Climate Change (MESTECC), Malaysia and MIMOS Berhad. This Conference is envisaged to facilitate awareness and foster collaboration among stakeholders, including those from public and private sector, academia, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and international participants involved in 4IR ecosystem. Deliberations during the conference will focus on key aspects of 4IR technologies such as IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, Big Data and how these technological innovations could help countries in achieving SDGs.
