Singapore, 15 March 2018 – Today, AI Singapore (AISG) and PwC Singapore are joining hands to collaborate on Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects and to enhance digital trust competencies in both the public and private sector. This will be through dedicated research projects relating to data analytics; AI research & development; and risk management and governance to ensure responsible AI adoption. This will be pivotal to ensure trusted digital ecosystems as Singapore develops as a Smart Nation.

Greg Unsworth, Digital Business and Risk Assurance Leader, PwC Singapore says:

“As the demand for automation and use of AI increases, designing in appropriate levels of risk management and governance will be essential for the trusted application of AI adoption. PwC Singapore advocates responsible AI adoption and is well positioned to help embed the right level of risk assessment, controls and governance frameworks to enable organisations to innovate with confidence. We are glad to be the first professional services firm to work with AISG in support of Singapore’s AI initiatives in line with Singapore’s Smart Nation ambitions.”

“We are excited to collaborate with PwC to accelerate the use of AI in the finance, audit and risk markets. The 100Experiments and AI Apprenticeship Programme, which PwC will participate in, will accelerate the adoption of AI in these areas and train new AI engineers for PwC and the Singapore ecosystem.”
