Singapore Summit: AI in the World's Leading Cities

September 20, 2019 | Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore. 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.

Our inaugural discussion at Davos 2019 on City Readiness for AI addressed the broader question of whether we are prepared to live with all of the outcomes from AI. How can the cities we live and work in best prepare for, and best succeed in, the age of AI? How can they address the risks? Following up on a successful discussion in January at Davos, this Oliver Wyman Forum breakfast seminar will begin with opening remarks by Dr Janil Puthucheary, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Transport & Ministry of Communications and Information.  SMS Janil’s remarks will be 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?

Current panelists include: Bing Xu, Co-founder, Board Member, Board Secretary, SenseTime; Prakash Kannan, Chief Economist, GIC.

Financial Regulatory Outlook Conference 2019

Nov 26, 2019. Rome, Italy. With accelerating pace, more and more banking services are being performed outside traditional banks. This is driven both by push and pull factors. Two major regulatory reforms in Europe – the second Payment Services Directive (PSD II) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - are forcing banks to share their customer data with competitors and put the individual in control of how their data is – and is not – used.

During the conference, entitled "Open Finance: A Game-Changing Reform," we will explore where different players stand in their journey in adapting business models and data strategies, the new risks to information security and financial integrity, and the many challenges facing supervisors.
