We caught up with Gavin Teo, Partner at B Capital Group. Gavin will be moderating a panel session on the integration of intelligent transport systems into smart cities at TECHX Asia 2017. He shared with us some of the technology trends which he’s excited about and gives a teaser of what he will be sharing at the event.
- Could you share something about yourself with our readers?
I am a US venture capital investor originally from Singapore. I consider it a privilege to invest in leading technology management teams on both sides of the Pacific.
- Could you give our readers a quick teaser on what you will be speaking at the show?
On our panel on integrating transport systems into smart cities, look out for some probing questions and exciting commentary from experts – including their view on how autonomous vehicles will transform the landscape for smart cities and integrated transport networks, which will change the nature of mass transport in the decades to come.
- Why is this topic close to your heart?
Autonomous transportation is a given in our lifetime and I am excited to invest in and support technology companies that are defining that reality. I also grew up in cities with well defined public transportation systems (Hong Kong, Singapore). I am a believer in mass integrated transport systems and enjoy contributing to thought leadership on the topic.
- Which future technology trends are you most excited about and why?
In addition to AV, I am excited about vertically applied Artificial intelligence in other enterprise markets. AI for healthcare for example, has the potential to massively increase access to care for patients, which is a huge market opportunity and a worthy public health cause.
- Why are you excited to attend the show?
TechX is the leading enterprise technology conference in Singapore for the SEA region. I am excited to participate, contribute and network with leaders in industry defining technology companies.
Gavin will be joining us at this year’s TECHX Asia, taking place 6-7 September 2017 in Singapore. As Asia’s leading event on commercial applications of emerging technologies, TECHX will bring together leading minds, entrepreneurs and innovators across the entire spectrum of emerging technologies: IoT, drones, AI, 3D, robotics, data and blockchain.
