AI Singapore (AISG) is a national AI programme launched by the National Research Foundation (NRF) to anchor deep national capabilities in Artificial Intelligence (AI) thereby creating social and economic impacts, grow the local talent, build an AI ecosystem, and put Singapore on the world map.
The programme office brings together all Singapore-based research institutions and the vibrant ecosystem of AI start-ups and companies developing AI products to perform use-inspired research, grow the knowledge, create the tools, and develop the talent to power Singapore’s AI efforts.
Since 2017, SUSS staff and students can participate in applied research projects under AISG’s 100 Experiments Programme. To extend the collaboration, AISG has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with SUSS to promote the knowledge and use of AI as well as cultivate entrepreneurial AI talents.
As part of the collaboration, AISG’s AI for Industry (AI4I)® programme will be recognised as a credit-bearing programme towards SUSS students’ degree programme. A joint Students Chapter will also be established to promote the understanding, learning and use of AI/Data Science among the student population. Apprentices from AISG’s AI Apprenticeship Programme (AIAP®) start-up track will have the opportunity to be part of SUSS’s Venture Builder Programme where ideas can be transformed into profitable solutions.
