Address – Congratulatory:

Congratulations on the opening of the 2024 Meta Factory Conference!

With the progress of digitalization, we are experiencing a whole new set of possibilities with technologies that seemed to be separate and distinct in the past. 

One such example is the concept of the Meta Factory. The Meta Factory concept, the amalgamation of the digital-twin and the metaverse, will bring about significant changes in manufacturing as it affects how humans interact with factory machinery.

I am very happy that Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU) is able to partner Hyundai to realise its vision of becoming the first mobility company to build a meta factory concept. 

A global university founded on science and technology, NTU has significant strengths in the areas of engineering and digitalisation. Since many years ago until now,  the university has been actively contributing to Singapore’s efforts towards developing cutting-edge technologies and ensuring its effective use in society through the translation of its research.

This conference is a step forward in realising the Meta Factory, and with the joint domain knowledge of Hyundai and the technical expertise from our NTU professors, I am certain that the discussions will bring about new discoveries and insights to realise our dreams for the future.

I wish the event a great success and I look forward to meeting all of you at the conference.
