AI Narratives in Singapore


Singapore aspires to become a world-leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and to use digital technologies to meaningfully improve people’s lives. As AI and robotics begin to fulfil their promise, they arrive with a host of meanings and cultural associations that significantly influence their development, regulation and place in public opinion. 

This workshop brings experts from the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence -- based at the University of Cambridge -- into dialogue with researchers from a wide range of subject areas across the university as well as representatives from heritage, industry, and the arts in order to explore the evolving relationship between AI, culture, and society in Singapore.
