IMDA, together with Microsoft and Green Software Foundation has recently launched a set of digital sustainability guidelines (5.35MB) that will advance Singapore’s position as a leading innovation and sustainability hub in Southeast Asia.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) refers to the study and use of intelligent machines to mimic human action and thought. With the availability of Big Data, advances in computing, and the invention of new algorithms, AI has risen as a disruptive technology in recent years, and Singapore is at the forefront of embracing and innovating in this rapidly evolving field.Closed
