Google to collaborate with AI Singapore to build AI talents

It was recently announced that Google Cloud will be collaborating with Singapore’s national artificial intelligence (AI) program in order to get more people interested in machine learning (ML) and AI.

Indeed, with this partnership, aspiring AI engineers will have the opportunity to do two months of intensive training as well as get hands-on experience in real-world projects. The projects include solving problems for businesses through AI and how to support the growth of local AI start-ups.

Moreover, this collaboration will allow companies to use Google’s AI and machine learning services so as to develop products with half of the cost co-funded by AI Singapore. The partnership with Google is also reported to not be exclusive, as some projects in the 100 Experiments initiative run on Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

This Google partnership is seen as a“natural extension of the work that AI Singapore is doing with cloud providers and should attract more companies to the 100 Experiments program as well as the Google Cloud Platform.
