Into its 15th instalment, SCS Splash Awards 2018 challenged students to apply artificial intelligence (AI) to projects benefitting community- building, education, family & lifestyle, healthcare as well as transport, logistics & communications.
Adrian Chye, Chairman of the Splash Awards Organising Committee said, “The Splash Awards is organised by students for students, and the theme ‘AI Innovation’ was chosen because we saw strong interest from students to learn more about the technological and applied developments in AI. To facilitate this flagship event, SCS had brought in industry partners. And the outcome had been rewarding with the receipt of several high- quality submissions, which are both innovative and potentially ground- breaking.”
During the four-month long competition, more than 40 training sessions were conducted for interested students. At the end of which, close to 200 entries were received for the SCS Splash Awards.
The winners were awarded on 7 July 2018 at the finals cum prize presentation ceremony, which was graced by Ms Sim Ann, Senior Minister of State for Ministry of Communications & Information and Ministry of Culture, Community & Youth.
