OliverWyman Forum

Singapore Summit 2019

What makes some cities more ready than others for the age of AI? At the Singapore Summit, we explored the issue.


Artificial intelligence will disrupt the ways we work, communicate, and live. It will bring greater efficiencies, but it threatens to increase social, economic, and technological inequalities. Such ambiguity is nowhere more evident than in our cities, which are now home to more than half the world’s population.

Following up on a similar discussion in January at Davos, this Oliver Wyman Forum breakfast seminar continued with opening remarks by Dr. Janil Puthucheary, senior minister of state at the Ministry of Transport and Ministry of Communications and Information. 

SMS Janil’s remarks were followed by an expert panel discussion that will address key questions on AI governance:

•    What is the overall role of cities in advancing and governing AI applications?
•    What makes some cities more ready than others for the age of AI?
•    What are the major risks cities and their residents face from AI, and how can we mitigate them?

Panelists included: Bing Xu, co-founder, board member and secretary at SenseTime and Prakash Kannan, chief economist at GIC.
