What to look forward to at the Data & AI Leaders’ Summit in Singapore this week

  • Data and AI Leaders summit will address generative AI, data management, and more topics.
  • The summit is an exhibition and conference tailored for C-level executives and senior decision-makers who are technology end-users, with 25 sessions by over 30 data & Ai leaders from the region.

A month ago, IDC forecasted global spending on AI, including software, hardware, and services for AI-centric systems, to reach US$154 billion this year, an increase of 26.9% over the amount spent in 2022. The outlook suggests that more large and small companies are using their trove of data and integrating their systems with AI to avoid lagging behind competitors.

Why wouldn’t they? After all, data and AI have been having a profound impact on the way businesses have been operating in recent years. Companies are adopting AI to augment human abilities, automate repetitive tasks, provide personalized recommendations, and make data-driven decisions with speed and accuracy.

C-Levels and critical decision-makers are gathering later this week at the inaugural Data & AI Leaders’ Summit in Singapore as the city island aims to become a big data hub and world leader in AI adoption. 

With complimentary tickets, the Summit will take place on Thursday, April 27, at Marina Bay Sands, offering attendees an opportunity to network with professionals from the field.

Recent statistics reveal that almost 70% of SMEs in Singapore are yet to take advantage of data analytics. The country scored only 49.7 out of 100 for business readiness in a Statista AI readiness index. That said, the summit, both an exhibition and conference, is tailored for C-level executives, senior decision-makers, and technology end-users. 

There would be 25 insightful sessions by over 30 leaders from the industry in the region, covering critical topics such as chatbots, generative and conversational artificial intelligence like ChatGPT, governance and ethics, data management, strategy, and sovereignty. As harnessing new technologies to innovate businesses efficiencies is the top priority amongst enterprise leaders, the generative AI track will explore the applications of this technology, especially in the processing and understanding of large amounts of text, generation of text based on input, and the abilities to provide accurate and informative responses to a wide range of topics. 

Data sovereignty discussions will address why data privacy protection is more important than ever, and companies must ensure their customers and employees’ sensitive data is safe wherever that data is stored, shared and used. The adoptive AI track will provide guidance on how adaptive systems will enable new ways of doing business.

Among the speakers that will be present at the Summit includes Geetha Gopal, Head of Infrastructure Projects, Delivery and Digital Transformation at Panasonic Asia Pacific, Sachin Tonk, Deputy Chief Data Officer at GovTech, and Samuel Chu, Head of Data Science and Analytics for Singlife with Aviva.

The exhibition floor, on the other hand, will showcase cutting-edge solutions from Aerospike, Alteryx, Azul, Collibra, Confluent, Fivetran, and Juniper Networks. Tech Wire Asia is delighted to be an official media partner for Asia’s premier leadership summit.
