​Welcome to ARSC 2021 

This will be the first-ever AI Research Student Conference in Singapore that aims to provide undergraduates and graduates from all the universities in Singapore with an opportunity to experience a ‘poster-only’ AI Research conference that would help them to develop interest in AI and research.

While gaining technical skills and exposure to AI through our Technical Workshops and Tutorial sessions, the students will also be able to network with industry experts in their respective domain of interest through our Networking Sessions and gain an in-depth insight into some of our industry partners through Company sharing sessions.

In addition, students would be able to better understand the benefits and requirements of entering the field of AI research and learn more about the available opportunities at our industry partners through the virtual Job Fair.
