singapore in 2015
Gleeful childlike nostalgia, the Singapore skyline, laced with families, nothing more than flickering neon Morse tweets scattered over downtown. Gleeful childlike nostalgia, how elements of Appleseed, Bubblegrum Crisis and devilishly cheerful Microsoft “future ads” pop up in this six-minutes long “we almost had this, the future” video on how Singapore in 2015 will actually look like. See how all the points connect? Obviously not. This is a nodal point now.
Intelligent Nation 2015 (iN2015) is Singapore’s 10-year masterplan to help us realise the potential of infocomm over the next decade. Led by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), iN2015 is a multi-agency effort that is the result of private, public and people sector co-creation.
From the people sector, individuals provided their ideas and views through focus groups and the Express iT! iN2015 Competition. The competition attracted thousands of entries from students and the general public on how they envisioned infocomm would impact the way they live, work, learn and play in 2015. In addition, hundreds of private and public sector representatives participated in numerous discussions to come up with ideas for transforming their sectors through infocomm, and how to translate these ideas into reality.
