NTU's big artificial intelligence push

Professor Ho Teck Hua, the fifth President of NTU Singapore, today announced the University’s new ambition to address the global opportunities and challenges brought about by the rise of artificial intelligence (AI).

At the heart of this endeavour is a boost in AI education, research, and innovation efforts to nurture socially conscious AI talent and develop human-centric AI solutions.

Among the new academic offerings this year are the interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science in AI and Society degree programme, the Turing AI Scholars Programme, and a Minor in AI for all undergraduates.

In the pipeline are more undergraduate and postgraduate offerings in AI and computing to uplift the digital capabilities of NTU graduates and the broader workforce.

These initiatives are in line with Singapore’s refreshed national AI strategy to triple the AI talent pool, develop a trusted AI ecosystem, and use AI to drive innovation and economic growth.

NTU’s big push in AI will allow the University to continue to attract and retain the best and brightest minds, cementing its position as a world-class university in its next phase of growth, said Prof Ho, who joined NTU in April 2023.
