DataMesh has been selected for Cohort 4 of the 100+ Accelerator amongst the 46 sustainability-focused startups selected, which have all developed unique innovations to address critical sustainability gaps in corporate supply chains.
The award-winning 100+ Accelerator of AB InBev attracted over 1,700 submissions this year, and will be the program’s largest cohort since its launch in 2018 to help make progress on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and AB InBev’s ambitious goals to advance water stewardship, smart agriculture, circular packaging and climate action.
Each of the Cohort 4 startups will partner with one of the 100+ corporate partners – AB InBev, Coca-Cola, Colgate-Palmolive and Unilever to validate their solution in their supply chain and then scale to make an impact. DataMesh will be piloting with Coca-Cola to create innovative solutions for frontline workers based on DataMesh’s Enterprise Metaverse platform FactVerse, particularly driving inclusive growth globally.
“The 100+ Accelerator is moving faster and dreaming bigger for the future,” said Maisie Devine Sherman, Managing Partner and Founder of the 100+ Accelerator. “We are proud to welcome this new group of passionate entrepreneurs who have dedicated their time and work to finding innovative solutions, products and technology to address the world’s most urgent sustainability challenges.”
“DataMesh has been committed to empowering ordinary people and the community since the first day,” said Jie Li, Founder and CEO of DataMesh. “We are excited about piloting with 100+ Accelerator to help address the sustainability challenges and introduce new technologies and fresh ideas to the front line, by democratizing and making the digital twin and XR technologies more accessible.”
The 100+ Accelerator provides six months of remote programming and training to accelerate the collaboration and growth of cohort companies in addition to a pilot or alliance with partner companies. DataMesh and all participants will receive support from a global team champion, access to mentor networks and up to $100,000 toward pilot execution, eventually graduating to a larger commercial contract and strong relationship with one or more of the partner companies.
Singapore, November 7, 2022 – DataMesh FactVerse, an Enterprise Metaverse platform for frontline workers, can now be experienced at Singtel’s FutureNow Innovation Centre (FIC), an innovation platform designed to provide customer-centric experiences of compelling use cases by Singtel and its extensive partner ecosystem. DataMesh is collaborating with Singtel to feature two special 5G-enabled showcases at FIC’s Industry 4.0 bay, a digital twin of a smart factory and XR-based 3D modeling training and guidance solution at construction sites.
DataMesh’s industry-leading digital twin and XR-based innovations are in line with the six key industry clusters from the Singapore Government’s Industry Transformation Maps – namely Manufacturing, Built Environment, Trade & Connectivity, Professional Services, and Essential Domestic Services – which the FIC is designed to support.
About the FutureNow Innovation Centre
The FIC features a suite of state-of-the-art technologies that combines Singtel’s technological expertise in ICT and digital services, such as cloud, software-defined networks, data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), robotics and 5G. Leveraging these technologies, Singtel helps enterprises transform their business models, unlock new growth opportunities, enhance customer experiences and drive productivity.
DataMesh FactVerse is an Enterprise Metaverse that brings open-world gaming architecture and scenario designers to the enterprise world, breaking the barrier of spatial data processing and real-time 3D collaboration. This enables frontline workers to harness modern technology and increases productivity at the workplace. Since its official launch in 2022, FactVerse has been widely adopted in automotive factories, cargo airports and large arenas.
FIC presently features two showcases with FactVerse and 5G-enabled innovations from Singtel.
Showcase 1: 5G-enabled Digital Twin in Smart Manufacturing
The first showcase is an Enterprise Metaverse scenario – a digital twin of a smart factory powered by Singtel Paragon, the industry’s first all-in-one platform for 5G network, edge computing and services orchestration. The showcase highlights the efficacy of 5G and its impact on productivity with the concept of a typical smart manufacturing line.
A connection is set up between the models and the physical world through data configuration. Based on the real-time data transferred by 5G/4G, the digital twin demonstrates the status of the physical production line, including motion paths, speed, time spent on a specific task, and the differences in performance when utilizing 5G versus 4G.
The scene intuitively illustrates the advantages of 5G and the incredibly vast opportunities for commercialization of 5G and digital twins to help the digitalization of factories, through real-time monitoring, control, full-scope multi-end simulation, and many other purposes with cost-saving and upgraded performance.
Showcase 2: Digital Twin in Construction
The second showcase features a joint solution currently being trialed at Sentosa in Singapore, in partnership with Gammon and Singtel. It introduces an innovative way of construction, which traditionally involves complicated blueprints and endless inefficient verbal on-site instructions.
In this scene, or at a real construction site, engineers can easily provide XR-based 3D modeling training and guidance to frontline workers with DataMesh Director. The whole process is intuitive for end-users and requires zero coding experience. All collaborators, designers, inspectors and construction workers – whether on-site or remotely, can view the models simultaneously from different angles, and touch and change the model’s properties. The process for construction has never been so seamlessly smooth.
Besides introducing the application of 5G, digital twin and XR in industrial scenarios, these showcases demonstrate the ease with which advanced technologies such as the Industrial Metaverse can be handled by ordinary users – lowering the barrier to entry for cutting-edge applications that used to be accessible only to IT/OT professionals.
“We are excited to collaborate with FIC to create more innovative and impactful showcases of emerging technologies to support enterprises globally,” said Jacky Chan, Managing Partner of DataMesh Singapore. “We look forward to partnering with more industry leaders like Singtel to democratize digital twin and XR to support the digital transformation of enterprises and create greater outcomes for the society.”
