Predicting AI: The Past, Present and Future Promise of Artificial Intelligence

Wednesday, Oct 25, 2017 -

Time: 1:30pm - 2:30pm

As part of the High Commission of Canada’s Speaker Series to mark Canada’s 150th Anniversary, the High Commission of Canada invite you to a presentation: Predicting AI: The Past, Present and Future Promise of Artificial Intelligence
The modern field of AI—the goal of building intelligent machines—has stumbled and died nearly three deaths since its inception at the Dartmouth Conference in 1956. Its current resurgence, due largely to investments in the field of machine learning, demonstrates an uncanny ability to recognize patterns in large data sets and to predict outcomes with tremendous accuracy. Some believe that we are quickly heading towards “AGI” (artificial general intelligence)— machines that can successfully perform every kind of task that human beings can perform. By: Dr. Ian Kerr, Canada Research Chair in Ethics, Law & Technology, and Full Professor Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa
Opening Remarks: Her Excellency, Lynn McDonald, High Commissioner of Canada to Singapore Day/Date: Wednesday, 25 October 2017 Time: 13:30 – 14:30 Venue: High Commission of Canada, #11-01, One George Street, Singapore 049145 Complimentary Event RSVP to norliyah.jamal@international.gc.ca
Dr. Ian Kerr holds the Canada Research Chair in Ethics, Law & Technology at the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law, with cross appointments to the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Philosophy and School of Information Studies. He has published books and articles on topics at the intersection of ethics, law and technology and is currently engaged in research on two broad themes: (i) Privacy and Surveillance; and (ii) Human-Machine Mergers. Building on his prior Oxford University Press book, Lessons from the Identity Trail, his ongoing privacy work focuses on the interplay between emerging public and private sector surveillance technologies, civil liberties and human rights. His more recent work, including his new book, Robot Law (with Ryan Calo and Michael Froomkin), focuses on legal and ethical implications of AI, robotics and implantable devices.

Future Economy Conference and Exhibition

Wednesday, Nov 1, 2017 - Thursday, Nov 2, 2017

Time: 6:00am - 6:00pm

FUTURE ECONOMY CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION 2017 The global economic landscape is changing rapidly. With rising protectionist sentiments in some parts of the world, businesses are also concerned about lackluster demand while coping with domestic challenges such as business costs and helping workers to upgrade their skills. At the same time, digital trends threaten to disrupt traditional business models. Some companies have risen to the challenges and embraced new technologies and innovations while others are trying to adapt. The time for transformation is now. The inaugural Future Economy Conference brings together government, trade associations and chambers, thought-leaders and practitioners across industries to collaborate and learn best practices from one another. Everyone can play a part to achieve higher growth and productivity in the future economy. The event’s focus on the Industry Transformation Maps (ITMs) aims to provide greater clarity on how companies can become future-ready by transforming and strengthening their capabilities so as to move towards the next phase of growth and collectively, bring Singapore’s economy to the next level. GOH: Minister of Finance, Mr Heng Swee Keat

ICE IN THE TROPICS: Canada 150-Finland 100-Singapore Arctic Collaboration

Thursday, Nov 9, 2017 - Sunday, Dec 3, 2017

Time: 9:00am - 6:00pm

We have much to celebrate in 2017! It is Canada's 150th birthday and Finland's 100th birthday. To celebrate these milestones together in Singapore, and as founding members of the Arctic Council, we joined forces to create this exciting month of Arctic-themed activities in the heart of Singapore - at the beautiful National Museum. Canada and Finland were among the original founders of the Arctic Council. Canada was Chair of the Arctic Council in 2013, when Singapore joined as an observer. Finland is current Chair of the Arctic Council. While Singapore might be far away geographically from the Arctic, what happens in the Arctic has implications for Singapore's geography, environment, and economy. The melting of polar ice threatens to raise sea water levels around the world - it is low lying island states that will be most affected. At the same time, shipping routes in the Arctic may open up, creating economic opportunities. How we balance these opportunities and risks is a key challenge - and one of great relevance. Do not miss the opportunity to come and learn more about one of the world's most fascinating, remote regions. All events are free, but some do require registration. We are bringing the Arctic closer to home, here in Singapore! For more information about the exhibit and a list of upcoming activities and events visit https://www.iceinthetropics.com/.
