SenseTime has opened its SenseTime International AI Innovation Hub (Hub) in Singapore. The Hub will be acting as the locus for Southeast Asia to further its AI capabilities.

The Hub in Singapore will feature the company’s AI and Computer Vision technologies, and serve as an immersive living lab to help businesses apply the use of AI to accelerate Southeast Asia’s digital economy and unlock new opportunities through connected intelligence.

“Singapore’s status as a global financial hub and its tremendous growth potential to become the centre for AI innovation in Southeast Asia marks it as a strategic location in SenseTime’s expansion footprint,” said Xu Li, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, SenseTime Group.

The launch of the Hub will facilitate businesses in Southeast Asia to experiment more with AI and find practical AI-led solutions to real-world problems to accelerate digital transformation.

Visitors may interact with an AR simulation of the Merlion and Marina Bay Sands building and take commemorative photos with the attractions.

There are eight different zones featured in the Hub that showcase real-world AI applications for augmented and mixed reality, education, healthcare and customer engagement scenarios.

Nurturing AI talent in Singapore

The company also reaffirmed its commitment to nurture Singapore-based AI talents via two Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) – one with Business China, and the other with Singapore’s Institute of Technical Education (ITE) – to support AI capability building in Singapore.

As an effort to cultivate the AI talent in Singapore, SenseTime is partnering with Business China and ITE to impart AI knowledge and hands-on experience to local tertiary students, post-graduates, and adults with an interest in AI to develop their technical capabilities in the field.

This includes providing internship and international exchange opportunities, and promoting and facilitating AI education to develop AI competencies.
