Development projects are increasingly demanding as the clients becomes more sophisticated and requires their project to be built with better productivity and sustainability. At the same time, over the years there has being a gradual accumulation of practical experience around the world on specific methods of construction like prefabricated-prefinished volumetric construction (PPVC) and materials like self-compacting concrete (SCC) and cross laminated timber (CLT).

2 DAYS COURSE:This intensive course comprising lectures and case studies will enable participants to acquire sound technical knowledge of site risk management and appreciate how the construction insurance coverage is triggered. Technical aspects of the physical site work such as design and codes of practice will be addressed in relation to issues of dealing with the Contractor's All Risk (C.A.R) policy aspects during this session. Risk management on project sites will also be given adequate attention as these are essential to meet the policy conditions and clauses. Active learning concepts will be used to share the above subject matter with the participants.

IES EECETC and SUTD proudly present, and supported by Singapore Medical Association (SMA) --- The new era of healthcare ushered in by wide adoption of intelligent technologies has been rapidly changing. Artificial intelligence, smart sensors and Internet of Things (IoT) are among the most active and emerging trends in revolutionizing traditional healthcare systems. Technologies such as high performance processors and wearable body sensor networks have enabled us to turn dreams into reality.We are witnessing how advances in technologies are being leveraged by the healthcare sector to create smart health systems, and by the government to foster the deployment of smart city. This Talk aims to bring the audience the latest development in smart health where emerging technologies are adopted and implemented.Several studies conducted in Singapore General Hospital will be showcased, for example, cardiovascular risk stratification using intelligent wearable system for ECG analysis and processing. Further, challenges and opportunities in hardware innovation in the era of smart health will be discussed.

IES Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering Technical Committee (EECETC) and Temasek Polytechnic (TP) proudly present: "Understanding Deep Learning".------Deep learning is currently one of the most successful machine learning method in both its learning ability and flexibility in application in different areas. Deep Learning had also captured the public imagination as Google AlphaGo defeated numerous world champion in the ancient game of GO. As deep learning applications spreads into all field, it became obvious that engineers from all field must have a better of it. In this Talk, we will have a travel through the journey and milestones of the growth of Deep Learning. These throwback would help us better understand how the essential components and their importance. Next we would briefly go into some basic of Deep learning theory to have a basic understanding of the technology. Then we would go through the basic learning framework and also the some learning strategy. We would also examine some of the popular open source Deep Learning framework such as Tensorflow, Keras, Caffe and etc. We would also look into case studies to understand how to apply Deep learning.

Ever since the Workplace Safety and Health Act was enacted in Singapore in 2006, the safety scene in Singapore has been revolutionized.Starting with the introduction of mandatory risk management for the three hazardous industries namely,construction, manufacturing, and shipyards, the requirement was extended to six other sectors including medical facilities and eating places in 2008, and in September 2011 it covered all workplaces in Singapore.The Code of Practice for Risk Management was introduced in 2011, and revised in 2012. A further revision is under way and will be released shortly.While many industries have caught on to the new approach to reducing accidents and improving safety at the workplace through risk management, confusion persists in certain quarters on the scope of risk management, and the methodology for proper risk assessment and control. To guide the practitioners and broaden the coverage of the Act to all sectors, the course aims to review the procedures and recent changes to the Code of Practice.Apart from reviewing and emphasizing the previous guidelines mainly focusing on small and medium enterprises,the new Code expands the application to large enterprises, and suggests the numerical 5 by 5 risk matrix as a viable option, the most recent changes pertaining to the impact and assessment of human factors.The course will cover relevant portions of SS 506: Part 2: 2009, Singapore Standard on Occupational Safety and Health Management, pertaining to hazard identification, risk assessment and determining controls.Lecturer will bring into the course his extensive experience with risk management theory and practice.

Together Shaping Singapore's Future of Mobility: The rising of the Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) is part of the bigger plan to increase connectivity in our multi-modal transportation system and to improve the safety and efficiency of road travel. It will revolutionize the way commuters use vehicles and operators provide services. It will also transform the environment in which it operates. It does come with challenges such as creating a robust IT infrastructure to process and protect the huge volume of data.

Jointly-organised by IES EECETC and SUTD. In this Talk, research on the design and development of artificial intelligence (AI)-based systems with autonomous learning properties will be presented. Specifically, a variety of AI-based learning methodologies, which include neural networks, fuzzy systems, and evolutionary algorithms, for data modelling, inference with human linguistic knowledge, and multi-objective optimisation, will be explained.

The objective of this short course is to identify and waken players of the industry to as many as practically possible risks occurring in the course of comprehensive delivery of a construction project and suggest ways to avoid, mitigate, eliminate or overcome such risks.

Formwork structures have always been a highly hazardous item inthe construction industry. Continuing failures of formworks inSingapore have raised considerable alarm in the industry, thegovernment and the public.To address these concerns, and to update an outdated Code ofPractice for formwork, a Workgroup was formed in 2012 to developa new Code of Practice, SS580.This one-day course on formwork design and safety to revisedstandards and EuroCode aims to accomplish the following: Provide background material to and useful information onimproved standards in this area for this critical topic inworkplace safety; Present the basics of safe design of formwork structures andessential design requirements of SS580; Describe significant parts of the new Code of Practice forFormwork SS580:2012 to facilitate its use by designers andconstructors; Review a number of failure of formworks in Singapore andabroad to convey an understanding of causes; Discuss techniques to identify and evaluate the hazards, andmanage the risks; and, Offer practical guidelines for good practice in formworkdesign, erection, use, dismantling, inspection, andsupervision.The focus will be on basic concepts and procedures currently in usefor formwork in the construction industry.Objectives will include identification of principal contributory factors to formwork failures and their underlying rootcauses, and discussing how the new Code can eliminate or alleviate the problems.
