Singapore's A*STAR's Institute for Infocomm Research  (I2R) is holding its annual flagship event, ICM (Intelligence, Communication and Media) Horizons, today and tomorrow (9 and 10 October 2013) at the Biopolis.

ICM Horizons, comprising an exhibition and a conference, will focus on how I2R ready-to-go ICM innovations can help boost the productivity of small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

At the ICM Horizons conference today, I2R will present ICM innovations that have been translated from research efforts to readily deployable solutions for businesses that are looking for more efficient ways to meet their customers' needs. SMEs will also gain more insights on how they can leverage on various Government funding initiatives available to quickly and easily adopt ICM technologies. Distinguished speakers and panelists at the ICM Horizons conference include agencies such as IDA, SPRING and KPMG.

Aiming to encourage the SMEs to adopt ICM solutions, the two-day exhibition will showcase over 20 exhibits of I2R's readily deployable technologies and platform solutions to boost productivity. Visitors can personally experience these technologies at the demonstration booths. The solutions are broadly categorised under four technology clusters: healthcare, safety and security, wireless, image and audio, and video.

Dr Tan Geok Leng, Executive Director of I2R, said: "Technology plays a key role in empowering SMEs by automating their processes and improving workflow. We encourage SMEs to work with us for quick win ICM solutions to increase their competitiveness and productivity."
