Singapore launches second National AI Strategy
The renewed NAIS will promote a safer AI ecosystem.
Singapore has launched its second National AI Strategy (NAIS 2.0) to uplift the country's collective economic and social potential over the next three to five years.
NAIS 2.0 focuses on two key goals: excellence and empowerment.
On the excellence front, Singapore will selectively develop peaks of excellence in AI to advance the field and maximise value creation.
"We intend to direct AI towards addressing the needs and challenges of our time, such as in areas of global importance like population health and climate change," the Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI) said.
On the empowerment front, Singapore will raise individuals, businesses, and communities to use AI with confidence, discernment, and trust.
"We intend for AI to be the great equaliser, which equips our people and businesses with the capabilities and resources to thrive in an AI-enabled future," the MCI said.
