A collaborative initiative powered by the French Chamber, the Singaporean-German Chamber and the Spanish-Singaporean Chamber


The French, German and Spanish Chambers of Commerce in Singapore are pleased to bring you this exclusive virtual conference on Artificial Intelligence which will discuss many facets of Singapore’s AI Strategy and how three European organisations are contributing towards it.

Apart from digitization, the next technological phenomenon which is making huge waves across Europe and Asia is Artificial Intelligence (AI) - the capability to simulate intelligent, human-like behaviour in computers. We have already experiencing AI in several industrial sectors – manufacturing, food, healthcare, e-commerce and financial technology. Not only will our lives be transformed in the way we eat, live and work, it will also pose a golden opportunity for Singapore to open new frontiers of growth and transcend our geographical limits. But what does this mean for Singapore, moving forward?

In partnership with Economic Development Board, this virtual conference brings together three renowned European companies (Bosch.IO, Thales and Taiger) which are spearheading AI projects in order to help Singapore realise its vision. During this webinar, the audience will be split into 3 breakout rooms. Each attendee will be able to choose when registering one of the following topics:

  • How to Escape the Matrix – Ethical Considerations in Artificial Intelligence
  • AI: Myths, truths and misunderstandings
  • Can we trust AI?

Each speaker will lead one breakout room to engage in a discussion with his audience.
