How Singapore is Driving AI Ecosystem Convergence
more

This session will discuss how the private and public sector can - and must - work together to enable an end-to-end “Intelligent” ecosystem in Singapore.

The presentation will focus on the partnerships that are facilitating Singapore becoming the world’s AI powerhouse, as well as discussions on bridging the skills shortage through attraction of data workers, creating a regulated data culture, and the ethical concerns associated with an artificially intelligent society.

Ad-Hoc AI vs.End-to-End Implementation - How to Deploy a Business IT Strategy That Ties Together Narrow AI Projects
more

A lot of businesses are adopting a “bolt-on” approach to AI.This, whilst being capable of producing ROI in the short term, could end up resulting in a disparate, siloed AI architecture that will prevent businesses from ever “breaking the glass ceiling” when it comes to engineering an end-to-end, AI powered business.

This session will explore: 

  • Scaling AI innovation in the business without causing wholesale (and costly) disruption.
  • Preventing a plateau in AI capability by implementing the right platform strategy to accompany AI projects.
  • Ensuring back end architecture / cloud architecture is readied and capable of joining up disparate AI projects before, during, and after AI implementation
  • Is it even possible to implement an “end-to-end”AI solution? And if not, what is the next best thing?

  • Gaining cross-departmental buy-in for your AI ambitions.
  • When - and how - to begin adapting your business’ operational structure to ensure AI neatly embeds into your business’ workflow without too much friction.
  • Introducing narrow AI across the business to introduce the technology slowly vs. looking for partners who can engrain an end-to-end AI business model across the business.
  • Assessing current cloud, hardware, and platform strategy: the best route to conducting a full-scale audit of business’ architecture to ensure complete visibility of where AI will (and won’t) produce ROI

Ad-Hoc AI vs. End-to-End Implementation - How to Deploy a Business IT Strategy That Ties Together Narrow AI Projects
more

The range of niche business challenges that AI can help solve is huge. Reflecting this is the exponential increase in the number of “narrow AI” vendors on the market, with tailored and highly specialised solutions to several business process issues.

This has, naturally, resulted in a lot of businesses adopting a “bolt-on” approach to AI. This, whilst being capable of producing ROI in the short term, could end up resulting in a disparate, siloed AI architecture that will prevent businesses from ever “breaking the glass ceiling” when it comes to engineering an end-to-end, AI powered business.

This session will explore how to:

  • Scale AI innovation in the business without causing wholesale (and costly) disruption
  • Prevent a plateau in AI capability by implementing the right platform strategy to accompany AI projects.
  • Ensure back end architecture / cloud architecture is readied and capable of joining up disparate AI projects before, during, and after AI implementation
  • Decide whether or not it is actually possible to implement an “end-to-end” AI solution; and if not, what is the next best thing?

  • Thyago Epstein Liberalli - Global Director of Artificial Intelligence, Seek

Whether it consists of building internal data science capability, integrating AI specialists into lines of business, opening an innovation lab, purchasing new tools, or collaborating with external partners - the range of choices can often be a road-block to getting AI projects off the ground in the first place.

This panel will explore:

  • Approaching any investment with a business outcome mentality, and avoiding “AI for PR” based activities that will waste time and money, and could also produce negative publicity.
  • Identifying a compelling and authentic need for AI in your business, and finding a vendor who can deliver on their promises.
  • How much capability do you need to have in-house - and what is the best route to integrating data scientists and AI specialists into your current lines of business?
  • Creating internal innovation labs vs open innovation labs - understanding benefits and challenges associated with each approach.
  • Leveraging AI labs properly - i.e. using them to become more agile, and get to MVP quicker - rather than just being an expensive experiment.
