Artificial intelligence (AI) is a thing of the now, and the rate of change and developments in the domain reaf rms that.

Koo Seng Meng

Koo Sengmeng, Deputy Director of Strategic Alliances, AI Singapore, sheds light on how beyond changing the way we live, work and play; AI has the potential to propel the continued growth of our economy.

   

Did AI only come about in the recent years?

 

Certainly not. If you think about the recommendation engines from the likes of Amazon, Google and Baidu? Or your email spam detector? And more recently, phone personal assistants like Siri and Google Now. Many of them have been around for a while now – and even become features that we rely on.

 

   

Why is there increasing interest in AI in the recent years?

 

Affordable computing power such as Graphic Processing Unit (GPU), coupled with the development of cloud-based machine learning platforms by major tech companies – Alibaba Cloud Aliyun, Microsoft Azure Machine Learning Studio and Google Cloud – means that individuals and businesses can easily host and run Al projects that use machine learning techniques.

 

AI will not be able to take off successfully without data. Data is necessary to fuel the advancement of the AI engine.
