To meet the rising local demand for Artificial Intelligence (AI) skills and to assist local industries in their digital transformation, Singapore Polytechnic (SP) through its Data Science and Analytics Centre (DSAC) has collaborated with AISG to set up an AI Makerspace on the Dover Road campus.
The new AI Makerspace, which is a satellite node of AISG’s existing Makerspace, will allow SP students including those from the Diploma in Applied AI & Analytics the opportunity to intern and be mentored by AISG engineers and DSAC staff to leverage AI Bricks to build AI solutions.
As part of the collaboration, DSAC will work with AISG to offer relevant training courses as well as AI Clinics for Small, Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Through the courses and clinics, employees and owners of SMEs will have a better understanding of AI and Makerspace’s AI Bricks, and learn to harness AI solutions to increase productivity and business opportunities.
The latest AI Makerspace is timely as the Services and Digital Economy Technology Roadmap cites AI as one of the key technology areas that will change the world and take Singapore’s economy forward in the coming years. As Singapore embarks on its Smart Nation journey, SP is glad to partner AISG to equip our youths and companies with much needed technological skills that will help our industries transform.
