AI Advisory helps organisations accelerate their AI journey by leveraging AI Singapore’s AI Readiness Index as a framework to understand where they are in their AI maturity and hence what intervention would be required.
We advise companies’ management on the latest AI applications in their industries, conduct workshops to crystallise AI use cases and execute AI model development in an agile, quick-to-market manner. This is done through our AI Advisory programmes, such as the AI Readiness Index (AIRI), AI Clinics for Leaders, AI Discovery workshops and Short Industry Projects.
The programmes in AI Advisory are structured around our AI Readiness Index (AIRI) – an industry-focused AI readiness assessment framework developed by AI Singapore – to help identify where an organization is on their AI journey (or AI readiness).
AI Readiness Index
The table below shows the four AI readiness categories: AI Unaware, AI Aware, AI Ready, and AI Competent, and AI Singapore’s programmes which can be used to assist an organization.
|AI Unaware||AI Aware||AI Ready||AI Competent|
|Average Score||Less than 2.5||2.5 to 3.4||3.5 to 4.5||Greater than 4.5|
|Interpretation||Organisation might hear about AI, but is unaware of AI applications.||Organisation is aware of AI applications and could identify potential use cases.||Organisation has the capabilities to integrate pre-trained AI models into products or business processes.||Organisation has the capabilities to develop customised AI models and solutions for specific business needs.|
|Characteristics||Wait for vendors to convince with use cases and business value of AI Consume ready-made AI solutions||Actively seek AI solutions to address business needs. Able to identified potential use cases for AI applications, and consume ready-made AI solutions.||Evaluate and seek AI APIs, SDKs and pre-trained AI models for use within business.||Have strategy and roadmap of AI deployment for organization.|
|Recommendation||Increase AI literacy of organisation.||Consume ready-made, end-to-end, COTS AI solutions.||Prepare organisation to adopt and integrate AI solution. Broaden understanding of AI to whole of organization.||Deepen organisational AI capabilities. Broaden understanding of AI to whole of organization.|

AI Ready Clinics for Leaders
AI Ready Clinics for Leaders are for decision-makers and leaders in AI Aware or AI Ready organisations. The programmes are designed to support management in identifying a suitable AI journey and first AI projects and implementing the project potentially either as an AI Singapore co-funded short industry project or 100E.

AI Ready Clinics for Leaders
Developed for decision-makers and leaders who have started their AI journey, already understand what AI can do for them, and now wants to start their first AI project.
Leveraging our AI Project Canvas, you will quickly identify the key topics and areas you need to focus on while planning your AI project. This is especially important if you plan to submit for support under the 100E programme.
We will discuss what is the AI Readiness Index and how you can use it to plan your organization’s AI journey.
Learn how AI Singapore managed to build up from 4 to more than “200” AI engineers without competing in the red ocean with the big tech firms. We will share our apprenticeship model which you can leverage on or even replicate back in your organization.
AI Discovery Workshops
AI Discovery is suitable for companies classified as AI Ready and is prepared to invest time and resources to start their first AI project with AI Singapore under our 100E programme. During AI Discovery, AISG will facilitate discussions among the organisation’s stakeholders to ideate and prioritise use cases for AI development. The organisation can then execute these prioritised AI use cases under our 100 Experiments (100E) programme.
The AI Discovery programme helps organisations improve the success rate and value obtained from their AI initiatives by using a proven, structured approach to ideating and prioritising use cases for AI development.
Inspired by Google’s Design Sprint, we have adapted it to suit our requirements based on AI Singapore’s (AISG) experience in providing advisory services to businesses to identify, scope and develop AI solutions.
AI Discovery consists of two separate 2.5-hour workshops: Ideation and Prioritisation. The sessions
are held on separate days and are conducted either physically (recommended) or via videoconferencing.
Through the Ideation Workshop, organisations will uncover potential use cases for AI development.
The AISG Advisory team will help to translate business challenges into opportunities, ideate potential
solutions, and build alignment among stakeholders.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to identify areas of opportunity for their
organisations to explore, goals to pursue, blockers to investigate and potential applications to
These set the stage for the Prioritisation Workshop.
The Prioritisation Workshop helps organisations to select the most feasible use cases for AI
The AISG consultants will help the organisations review the business importance and technical feasibility of the potential AI use cases.
The outcome of the Prioritisation Workshop will be a feasibility assessment of different use cases based on business, technical, data and product analysis.
The organisation can then execute these prioritised AI use cases under our 100 Experiments (100E) programme.
AI Discovery is intended for AI Ready organisations with existing IT capabilities such as software engineering, AI engineering or IT project management.
The workshop should comprise four to seven participants from the same company, ideally from cross-functional teams including business leaders, product owners and engineers, to encourage diversity of perspectives and ideas.
