You will learn how to create an environment that encourages risk taking and enterprising behaviours overcoming the “kiasu” and “kiasi” culture. You will also learn how to reduce defensiveness and evolve a learning organisation culture, adaptive in surviving in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world, as well as apply strategic, “zoom out” Systems Thinking to avoid the “domino effect” of unintended consequences.

Enabling and Optimizing Multi-Modal Sense-Making for Human-AI Interaction

School of Computing and Information Systems In recent years, widespread popularity of Augmented Reality (AR) enables a multitude of Human-AI collaborative applications, For example, interactive virtual assistants, which enable humans to communicate their instructions and queries more naturally using modalities such as voice and text, are progressively empowering exciting new ubiquitous, mixed-reality computing applications. Traditional voice-based conversational agents like Apple’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa are evolving to be increasingly multi-modal (e.g. Nvidia’s RIVA SDKs) supporting the comprehension of human instructions via a mix of language, gesture, and visual inputs. While the success of such multi-modal machine comprehension is driven by progressively sophisticated Deep Neural Network (DNN) models, their prohibitive computational overhead and model size makes it challenging to support low-latency, on-device execution of inference tasks on resource-constrained wearable and IoT devices (such as Microsoft HoloLens or Nvidia Jetson platforms).

Operations Management Research Webinar

Area Administration Using a unique set of national healthcare claims data, we investigate the effect of telehealth expansion policy on rural-urban healthcare-access disparities. Leveraging a difference-in-differences design, we compare the total number of visits to urban and rural providers before and after telehealth expansion. We find an enlarged disparity in rural-urban healthcare access, with the rural-urban gap in total patient visits increasing by 3.9% due to telehealth expansion. We then examine the underlying mechanisms that drive the enlarged disparity. We start by decomposing the visits into in-person and telehealth visits, finding that the urban population switches from in-person to telehealth visits and has significantly more access overall. By contrast, the rural population continues with in-person visits and has a much lower uptake of telehealth services. We then examine patient composition by rural and urban providers, and find that the enlarged disparity is due to urban patients having better access to care, espe… Subtitle: Does Telehealth Reduce Rural-Urban Care-Access Disparities?

SOSS 15th Anniversary Seminar Series | Singapore Decoupling: Communitarianism and the Challenges of Immigration, Inequality, and Liberalization

School of Social Sciences Does communitarianism have a future in Singapore? For more than fifty years, modern Singapore’s communitarian governance, which privileges the communal good over individual self-interest, has made the city-state one of the world’s most successful and cohesive economies. Since the 2000s, however, profound social changes have challenged the ideology and practice of communitarianism. This talk discusses how immigration, inequality, and liberalization have emerged as points of social division to disrupt communitarianism, how the communal good is perceived, and how it is practiced in public policy. My main argument is that social groups in Singapore have become decoupled from one another, with a marked discontinuity in social trust and cohesion since the early 2000s, making communitarian governance an increasingly challenging prospect.

Speaker Details: , Alwyn Lim Associate Professor of Sociology Lee Kong Chian Fellow Alwyn Lim is Associate Professor of Sociology at Singapore Management University and Lee Kong Chian Fellow for 2022-2024.

Firms can be pulled into political dramas and issues that, only hours before, we thought were not directly relevant to our business. Stakeholder expectations can change just as rapidly with companies being regularly called out about their carbon footprint, employment practices of suppliers, or issues pertaining to gender or age distribution of the workforce. Managing your corporate reputation, and being well-prepared for crisis response, is more important than ever before.

SOSS 15th Anniversary Seminar Series | Mobilizing for Elections: Patronage and Political Machines in Southeast Asia

School of Social Sciences Across Southeast Asia, as in many other regions, politicians win elections by distributing cash, goods, jobs, projects, and other benefits to supporters. But they do so in ways that vary tremendously—both across and within countries. This talk, based on a new book, Mobilizing for Elections: Patronage and Political Machines in Southeast Asia (with Edward Aspinall, Meredith Weiss and Paul Hutchcroft), I present a new framework for analyzing variation in patronage democracies, focusing on distinct forms of patronage and different networks through which it is distributed. I do so by drawing on a massive, multi-country, multi-year research effort involving interactions with hundreds of politicians and vote brokers, as well as surveys of voters and political campaigners across the region. I explore how local machines in the Philippines, ad hoc election teams in Indonesia, and political parties in Malaysia pursue distinctive clusters of strategies of patronage distribution—what I term electoral mobilization regimes.… Contact: cindykwoh@smu.edu.sg.

SOSS 15th Anniversary Seminar Series | The Psychology of Trust Amid Challenges: Why and How Public Trust Matters

School of Social Sciences The Covid-19 pandemic and other global and local issues have caused and will continue to cause great disruption to lives, livelihoods, ways of life and quality of life. For societies and organizations to effectively function in the new normal amid challenges of threats and opportunities, a principled, adaptive leadership in which leaders’ decisions, words and actions are highly trusted by the public is needed. Trust is critical for problem-solving because a baseline level of trust is foundational for people to believe their leaders and decide to cooperate or be motivated to perform actions towards achieving the intended outcome. When public trust is low, effective functioning is hampered – leaders, be they in governments, businesses or non-profit organizations, will find it extremely difficult to implement a control measure or an initiative, change a prior decision or explain the change, and galvanize people to collectively manage a crisis. Research in behavioural sciences has consistently shown that trust in… Contact: cindykwoh@smu.edu.sg.

SOSS 15th Anniversary Seminar Series | What is Racial Privilege?

School of Social Sciences The concept of demographic privilege (e.g. “white privilege” “male privilege” “class privilege”) is often appealed to by social scientists to explain social phenomena. It has also played a prominent role in recent social justice movements. Yet these appeals are controversial and have generated some critical pushback. Drawing on work by philosophers, I will argue that “privilege” is unhelpfully being used as a label for several morally distinct social phenomena. Furthermore, only some of these phenomena involve “privileges” in the traditional moral sense. The upshot is that “privilege” is too crude a term to accurately capture the relevant moral and social phenomena. To theorize better about social injustices, and resolve the critical pushback, we need a richer conceptual scheme that uses several terms in place of one. Contact: cindykwoh@smu.edu.sg. Speaker Details: , Matthew Hammerton Assistant Professor of Philosophy Matthew Hammerton is Assistant Professor of Philosophy in the School of Social Sciences at Singapore Management University.
