To overcome Singapore’s land limitations, we need to extend our tourism offerings into the digital space to make Singapore a compact yet dynamic destination. STB partnered Snap and Google, and leveraged their AI technologies for location identification and object recognition, to deliver immersive XR experiences. I will also be sharing about an in-house built recommendation engine to help visitors discover relevant parts of Singapore more quickly.

The presentation provided an illuminating and compelling journey into the role of artificial intelligence in molding our current landscape and guiding our future path. It strongly advocated for us to recognize AI's potential, while also encouraging a responsible and advantageous integration of it into society. Further emphasized was the crucial role of ethics, transparency, and the partnership between major AI enterprises and the government.

Last year, JumpStart shared about its job recommender. There has been several progress since: JumpStart launched an upgraded course search feature on MySkillsFuture, which allows users to ask more natural queries like ‘skills for lawyers’ when finding courses. Recently, JumpStart also launched CareersFinder, a feature on MyCareersFuture where users can obtain personalised occupation, job and course recommendations, to help them plan their career. We will share the technical details underlying these recommenders.

Underlying these two new features is the JumpStart platform, which comprises a set of reusable data, MLOps infrastructure, models, and AI microservices. We are just scratching the surface of what could be powered by the JumpStart platform, and JumpStart’s ambition is to become a national platform that developers across public agencies, industry partners, and research institutions can use to power jobs and skills-related recommendations.

The Artificial Intelligence Platforms (AIPF) team develops central AI products that focuses on enabling public service with AI. We will explore GovText's capabilities in analysing unstructured text data, and discuss IM8 Q&A and DocuBot tools for improving service delivery. Benefits include increased efficiency, cost savings, and enhanced service delivery. We will also address challenges such as data security, trust, and potential harm from misleading information, while outlining future development plans for AI products in public service.

The data engineering capability centre is building up our WOG muscles in DataOps and ModelOps, as strategic foundational capabilities that ensure our public service is well-placed to capitalise on the latest AI innovations and translate these to create value through production use cases. We are experimenting and trailblazing this via WOG systems like AG which democratises the infrastructure for agencies so they can focus on effectively leveraging their data to develop and deploy AI models at scale. To go far, our public and industry sectors have to learn from each other and embark on this transformation journey together.
