On February 6, 2020, an excited group of customers, partners, and investors came together to celebrate UIB’s 6th anniversary. How did the UIB team celebrate this important milestone? They invited our VIP guests for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of UIB’s new world headquarters in Ngee Ann City to experience the future of technology first-hand. Here are some of the photos from the event.

“We have entered the golden age of collaboration between humans and AI.”
UIB CEO Toby Ruckert welcomed everyone by saying, “We have entered the golden age of collaboration between humans and AI. Together with our partners, we are humanizing technology, not ‘technologizing’ humans.” Here are the robots, AI-powered assistants, smart home technologies, and other innovations our guests experienced.
Serving as the event’s official Bar-Bot, guests gave their drink orders to SXSW 2020 Innovation Awards Finalist, Misty Robotics’ “Misty II.” Because UIB is an official WhatsApp Business Solution Provider (BSP), event guests were able to talk to and text Misty on WhatsApp. Misty is compatible with UIB’s UnificationEngine® Conversational IoT platform and its wheels, motors, sensors, and cameras allow it to function as a teacher’s aid, a security guard, an eldercare companion, and more.
Guests used UIB’s technology from their mobile phones to control smart home appliances and electronics from the most popular brands.
Smart Building Services
Guests got to experience how UIB’s technology allows people in co-working spaces to book rooms, order refreshments, get help, manage their accounts, and more.
Toby concluded his remarks by saying, “Collaborative innovation needs diversity. We will be collaborating together with AI to help us live better lives. This isn’t years off in the future. This is happening right here right now with our customers today. We look forward to working with new companies to leverage our platform and our technology to create this future together with each other.”
