Sundown Drinks: Robotics Technologies & Singapore!

Organised by SGInnovate

Singapore is the second densest country with robots, having 488 robots per 10,000 employees. Coupled with abundant technical talent from engineers to computer scientists and S$19 billion committed in R&D over five years, the country is primed to take the lead as a springboard for robotics technologies.

Or is it?

Join us as we investigate deeper on how far Singapore has progressed in creating tangible outputs, including technological-commercialisation, public-private partnerships and job creation. This edition of SGInnovate’s Sundown Networking includes panellists from industry, academia and entrepreneurs in robotics technologies, who will be sharing their expert insights in this invite-only networking session, discovering how lives will be shaped in the future, as robots become more pervasive in our society.

  • What Can We Expect from Machine Cognition

    Recent decades have witnessed the remarkable progress in artificial intelligence (AI). However, there are still opposing views on the prospect of AI as being yet another cyclic hype or a new development with sustaining power. As the evidence becomes less controversial in the area of recognition, we focus the discussion on the next level of mental capacity necessary to intelligent behaviors, namely, the capability of cognition that involves knowledge acquisition, inference and reasoning, and reinforcement learning. We present our views by way of the current status of Microsoft Academic Graph (MAG), a project in Microsoft Research that teaches machine to obtain knowledge by reading scholarly publications, and contemplate what machine can do in the near future based on the trajectory being observed thus far. As MAG is open to the public, how it can be used through PySpark and what types of applications it has enabled will also be described.
