On the AI Singapore program, developing generational AI talent, and Singapore's place in the global AI ecosystem.
I know Singapore is very small, and I realize there are significant culture differences between Singapore and America. Those two things aside, this episode underscores the stark differences in attitudes toward AI in the U.S. (generally pessimistic) and Singapore (roll up the sleeves and get to work!).
Liew offers such a pragmatic, down-to-earth, practical guide to how to accelerate an entire population towards digital modernization and AI readiness. The U.S. can learn a lot.
Useful thought exercise: project five years into the future, and assess Singapore's AI adoption rate versus the U.S.
"...if AI Singapore is still around in 20 years, I think we will have failed." Well said.
