Artificial Intelligence (AI) has provided humanity with opportunities for creating growth and prosperity with its seemingly endless potential. It has disrupted various industries to benefit businesses and our society as a whole.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is on the rise, and very rapidly so. This technology for next-generation intelligence and decision making is permeating every industry and much of human activity. But while the hype is spreading quickly and affecting every industry, business leaders of the world would need to know, ‘Beyond the hype, what can AI do for my business and how can I go about doing so?’
In Singapore, life expectancy has risen to about 85 years, and by 2030, it has been predicted that one in four Singaporeans will be aged 65 and above. It is undeniable that Singapore will have a rapidly ageing population; hence, it is imperative to encourage citizens to be as healthy and active as possible.
Singapore, like many other Asian and European countries, is in demographic trouble. With a rapidly ageing population that is living longer, there is an increasing need to provide additional medical services beyond the status quo.
Singapore and other Asian cities namely Bangalore, Beijing, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Tokyo have the potential to become global agri-food innovation powerhouses “by creating space for innovation, encouraging public-private sector interaction and drawing in entrepreneurs, such hubs will play an outsized role in driving investment and innovation in the region,” according to the “Asia Food Challenge Report” by PwC, Rabobank and Temasek Holdings.
Singapore released its National AI Strategy at the inaugural Singapore FinTech Festival x Singapore Week of Innovation and TeCHnology (SFF x SWITCH) 2019, and it aims to build itself into a world leader in developing and deploying AI solutions by 2030.
