AI Singapore

To anchor deep national capabilities in Artificial Intelligence, thereby creating social and economic impacts, growing local talent, building an AI ecosystem and putting Singapore on the world map.

Launched in May 2017, AI Singapore 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 knowledge, create tools, and develop the talent to power Singapore’s AI efforts.

Programmes

AI Research

Exploring and funding groundbreaking AI Research

To seed high-quality research efforts aimed at developing fundamental AI novel techniques, algorithms and adjacent technologies, encouraging national research collaborations and local AI talent development.

Important Questions

  • What are the gaps in current AI technology?
  • What are the new AI advances with positive economic and societal impacts?
  • How can we use AI safely and securely?
  • How do we design AI to align with ethical, legal and societal principles?

Targeted Capability Building

Trustworthy and Explainable AI

  • Boost AI adoption
  • Build on Singapore’s “trust” brand

Privacy-aware AI

  • Demand from regulators and consumers
  • Learn from sensitive datasets while preserving the privacy of individuals

Resource-efficient AI

  • Small country, hence small dataset
  • Learning from small but quality datasets

Collaborative AI

  • Strengths in NLP and diversity as a testbed

Continuous Learning AI

  • Autonomous incremental learning AI towards Artificial General Intelligence

AI Governance

Trust and AI

Supporting research that mitigates the risks of AI by promoting fairness, accountability, transparency, ethics, and safety.

Trustworthy AI

Should we trust AI?

Transformative technology offers tremendous opportunities but raises ethical concerns and the potential for harm. This pillar supports research that mitigates the risks of AI by promoting fairness, accountability, transparency, ethics, and safety. Governance is broadly understood to include laws, markets, networks, standards, and other tools.

Trust in AI

Will we trust AI?

The utilisation of AI will be enhanced by faith that the end-to-end process is robust and accountable. The pillar also supports interdisciplinary research into understanding the factors that shape perceptions of human-machine interaction, influencing the adoption of beneficial AI.

Research Areas

(non-exhaustive)

  • Fairness — Ensure that the benefits of AI are properly shared among the community (Bias detection & prevention)
  • Transparency / explainability — Ensure that systems appropriately enable those affected to understand the process in general and a specific outcome in particular (Transparency tools; explainability standards & measures)
  • Safety & Security — Ensure that AI systems are safe to use and appropriately protected against hacking and data breaches (Safety certification; Data protection & cybersecurity)
  • Accountability — Ensure that AI systems are properly regulated – minimizing risk and properly allocating losses (Liability and compensation framework)
  • Ethics & human-centricity — Ensure that AI serves the interests of the broader community (Values and trust in AI)
