A peek into government techs in 4IR

On May 15, MIMOS hosted a forum on Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) aimed at giving government officials glimpses on how technology applications can create real value in unlocking the potential benefits and addressing challenges associated with 4IR.

Themed ‘Our Bridge to the Future’, the Forum saw enlightening presentations from Works Ministry; Health Ministry; Higher Education Ministry; Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU) and Malaysia Remote Sensing Agency, preceded by an overview by MIMOS.

In the ‘Convergence of Technologies in 4IR’ overview by MIMOS, Chief Technology Officer Thillai Raj Ramanathan highlighted the application of multiple MIMOS-developed technologies in various projects across strategic sectors such as Healthcare, Agriculture, Transportation, Environment and Public Safety. Technologies applied include Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics, Edge Computing and Simulation, among others.

The Malaysian Health Data Warehouse (MyHDW), for instance, is one of the projects developed by MIMOS in collaboration with the Health Ministry using the convergence of Cybersecurity and Cloud and Edge Computing. The complex data warehouse system has the capability to generate reports, analyse and disseminate information through a dashboard.

The Forum was wrapped up with participants taking home new insights and understanding of emerging technology application that government agencies can use in policy and development planning.
