Following a successful debut in Dubai, this global series is foraying into APAC region on 17 – 18 July with a titillating line-up of global AI experts, investors, startups, AI technology providers and key government authorities from the region.
Date, Singapore: The World AI Show Series is set to make its historic foray into the Asia Pacific (APAC) region with the event set to touch down in the island nation of Singapore, taking place on 17 – 18 July at the luxurious Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The two-day show is hosted by global business events and consulting firm Trescon.
The world is in the midst of a massive, long-term shift in wealth, economic power and population growth from West to East. The decision to host the show in Singapore comes in the wake of the government fueling their own desire and ambition to make the country a hub of technological innovations, in the entire APAC zone. In the digital world, government functions will be ‘co-created’ with citizens, on their own or working with others. And it is evident that only embracing smart future technology will make it possible.
From Singapore government launching the AI strategy, to Alibaba investing 15 billion USD into emerging & developing technologies, the future of industry 4.0 looks very promising in APAC region.
World AI Show aims to catapult these developments and provide a platform for budding startups and entrepreneurs in Singapore, as well as the entire Asia Pacific region, to get connected to the global demand and secure business goals for growth.
One of the key investor attending the show, Joel KO from Marvelstone said in an interview,“I want to acknowledge the importance of the US and China as global AI hubs; that is something we cannot ignore. But at the same time, I want to advocate a stronger awareness of important regional leaders in Asia such as Singapore. These economies will be the engines of growth for much of Asia over the next decade and it’s important they take on leading roles in AI. World AI Show is a wonderful opportunity to showcase those leading and meaningful efforts from Asian regions.”
Notable investors attending the show include Fenox Venture Capital, Marvelstone, B Capital Group, Monk’s Hill Ventures, Golden Gate Ventures, WeMerge, Nikaia Ventures, Zeroth.AI and many more.
Mohammed Saleem, CEO of Trescon, says that “The Asia Pacific region is relatively in the infancy stage. The World AI Show aims to develop and nurture this nascent sector and deliver a fully robust and matured industry to the global market. AI has seen great strides in the Asian continent over the last few years, and the timing of this event is almost positioned in the goldilocks zone”.
World AI Show also has a great line-up of renowned speakers poised to take the stage to discuss exciting concepts around the world of AI and Machine Learning (ML). Some of the exceptional speakers include Gerardo Salandra, Chairman of the AI Society of Hong Kong; Nadia Magnenat Thalmann, Director for the Institute of Media Innovation, Singapore and MIRALab and also the creator of the ‘Nadine’ robot; Jesse Damiani, Emerging Tech Journalist, CEO of Galatea; Editor-at-Large of VRScout, Dr Satyam Priyadarshy, Chief Data Scientist at Halliburton and Senior Advisory Board Member, Trescon.
