The lab will be manned by 100 researchers and staff will focus on advancing 3D printing, AI, machine learning, new materials and applications, cybersecurity and customisation.

At launch, the lab will prioritise 15 projects to better understand three areas:

  • New materials and applications: advanced polymers for manufacturing applications, the development of bioprinting models toward printing viable tissues, and 4D printed smart systems that adapt shape with temperature change;
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning: helping printers autonomously predict and resolve issues;
  • Cybersecurity: research to improve end-to-end point security infrastructure and malware mitigation.

The collaboration will also include developing educational curriculum on designing for Additive Manufacturing – covering areas such as data management, security, user experience and business models.

“The HP-NTU Digital Manufacturing Corporate Lab will significantly deepen our involvement here and serve as a nucleus for this ecosystem. We are proud to collaborate with NTU and we are looking forward to this becoming a blueprint for innovation, collaboration and economic progress,” said Dion Weisler, CEO and President, HP Inc, in an official press statement.
