AI Evening: A Global AI Economy for All
Organised by SGInnovate
The recent explosion in Artificial Intelligence capabilities has revolutionized the way companies do business and enabled unprecedented opportunities. However, AI services (and the data models that dive them) remain for the most part siloed off in large corporations such as Google, Microsoft and Amazon.
This presents two major obstacles:
For companies that wish to take advantage of AI in their business, they have little choice other than to purchase services from one of the big providers, which often requires awkward subscription plans that can be prohibitively expensive, especially for small companies.
For startups (or individuals) who are creating exciting new AI algorithms, there is no easy way for them to publicize and monetize their services. Their only option is to go the typical route of: try to get VC funding -> build a company to the “exit point” -> hope to sell out to one of the big corporations.
SingularityNET – the brainchild of renowned Artificial Intelligence expert, Dr. Ben Goertzel, and famed robotics pioneer, Dr. David Hanson – is a revolutionary new, decentralized, open marketplace for exchanging AI services.
In this talk, we will describe how SingularityNET works, its benefits and objectives, and how it will address the two problems above (along with many others). We will conclude with a high-level demo showing how any developer anywhere in the world can easily and quickly publish and monetize their AI code.

Health Futures: AI and Genomics
Artificial intelligence will be a key driver in the global precision medicine market, which according to Global Market Insights Inc. is expected to grow to USD 87.7 billion by 2023. Brendan Frey, the CEO of Deep Genomics, was quoted in the MIT Technology Review, saying “For the first time in history, our ability to measure our biology, and even to act on it, has far surpassed our ability to understand it. The only technology we have for interpreting and acting on these vast amounts of data is AI. That’s going to completely change the future of medicine.” The result will be more targeted therapeutics and risk reduction models, leading to better clinical decision support across disease areas.
