Live from Singapore – Lessons from the Singaporean innovation ecosytem – Hong Kong Radio 3

IMAG3032It’s always a hoot to be in Asia and this week I’m broadcasting live from Singapore into Hong Kong, where Phil Whelan and I ponder why a small country like Singapore seems to be so on top of their game when it comes to tech adoption, innovation and “can-do” attitude.

We explored the driverless buses that are set to make their way on to some Singaporean roadways later this year, an education system that is heavily based on STEM (Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering) and is usually near the top of any global Education excellence survey and how a government can structure and incentivise a business ecosystem to become the Asian hub for business and technology.

We also took a look at the notion of freedom on information online and on the anniversary of Alan Turing’s wartime code breaking discovery we explored the notion of discovery, how we come up with ideas and how “human” an act this is.

Great segment, great location, have a listen now (15 minutes 59 seconds)
