Event description

Description

Fintech is one of the fastest growing sectors of the modern economy, not just in Singapore but globally. It is recognised as a major factor in the fourth industrial revolution and will change the way we transact with one another without the need for a central processing agent like banks.

Fintech is a combination of the words “financial” and “technology”. According to the World Economic Forum, it involves “the innovative use of technology in the design and delivery of financial services and products” by harnessing technology and deploy artificial intelligence, machine learning, block chain, and data analytics.

The education sector is a big market and ready for transformation or disruption. Global statistics estimates the education market to be easily among the trillion dollar mark. Yet, education technology or Edtech has been overshadowed by Fintech. However, just as digitalization has transformed the financial services sector, it is inevitable that the same will manifest around education. The increasing application of internet and mobile delivery systems, data analytics, AI including fintech technologies like cryptography and blockchain will radically transform the education landscape.

Developing a competitive edge while industries are being disintermediated and jobs automated, will be a challenge if we do not keep up with the times. In education, as we prepare our students to be future ready, educators must be cognizant of how technology is transforming the world. Otherwise, we will fall behind in the race against machines, as automation and artificial intelligence increasingly replace manual and repetitive jobs in the global economy. Can we afford to let education stay the same?

The Singapore FinEdTech Conference brings together educators, the public sector and technologists to interact and learn about the potential and transformation that digital technologies will bring to education and government. Jointly organized by Fintech Academy and Institute of Technical Education, the Singapore FinEdTech Conference 2019 is a must attend for all educators, civil servants and technology players.
