[Photos] Igniting the future at Dyson’s Singapore Technology Centre

Before the opening of the Singapore Technology Centre this year, Dyson was based at a 3,000m² site at Alexandra Technopark. Led by Scott Maguire, VP for engineering and operations at Dyson, the new centre focuses on developing new technologies for the future, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, fluid dynamics and vision systems.

The firm has created 50% more space and new laboratory facilities dedicated to developing its core technologies and new categories that underpin its growing technology portfolio.

Housing more than 1,100 people in Singapore, a third of whom are engineers and scientists, the staff work across two key sites, namely the Singapore Technology Centre and the Singapore Advanced Manufacturing facility, where state-of-the-art Dyson digital motors are made.

Speaking to Human Resources’ Wani Azahar, Maguire takes us on a tour inside Dyson’s Singapore Technology Centre.

What are some of the key features of this centre?

The Singapore Technology Centre holds some state-of-the art research, design and development laboratories that support our global ambitions in the realm of artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, fluid dynamics, vision systems, software and connectivity.

These labs are a reflection of the various key engineering disciplines that enable our high-performing technologies. For example, a semi-anechoic chamber allows our engineers to improve the acoustic quality of our machines. Some $20 million has been invested in these facilities over the past 10 years.
