Singapore Ramps Up National AI Strategy

(8 December 2023 - Singapore) Singapore plans to triple its pool of artificial intelligence (AI) experts to 15,000 as part of its ambitious national AI strategy.

Singapore also pledged under its AI strategy to increase government incentives for the sector, including by backing accelerator programs for AI startups and encouraging companies to set up AI "centres of excellence."

Home to the regional headquarters of global tech majors including Google and Microsoft, the city state also plans to boost its available high-performance computing resources by securing access through partnerships with chipmakers and cloud service providers. 

"We plan to ramp up local AI training programmes and operate a supply of graphics processing units (GPUs) to be available to the country's researchers. The experts include machine-learning scientists and engineers" commented Singapore Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong.
