Expanding presence in Singapore.

The new Dyson Technology Centre in Singapore has been opened by founder James Dyson, in the presence of Minister for Trade and Industry, S. Iswaran.

Dyson is investing £330 million in its future in Singapore. The new facility has the latest development labs, bringing together the latest hardware and software expertise. Dyson plans to grow the Singapore-based engineering team by 50%. Located in the heart of Singapore’s start-up community and next to the National University of Singapore, the new Centre’s engineering teams will focus developing new technologies for the future.

Commenting on the new Centre, Dyson said, “It is no coincidence that we are deepening our investment in Singapore to achieve our technology ambitions. Right here, some of the world’s brightest minds are working on artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, fluid dynamics, vision systems to bring hardware, electronics and software together.

“Good software allows Dyson products to actually improve over time and gives them intelligence to understand and respond to their environment.”

Singapore Economic Development Board chairman, Dr. Beh Swan Gin said, “We are pleased that Dyson is expanding and deepening its presence to Singapore. With its focus on connected technology and intelligent machines, Dyson’s Singapore Technology Centre will create exciting jobs in areas such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and software development. This will in turn, inspire young Singaporeans about the transformational possibilities of engineering, and support our drive to build an innovation-led economy.”
