THE RISE OF AI GOVERNMENT

14 – 15 April 2020 | kuala lumpur

ABOUT BIGITGOV 2020

THE RISE OF AI GOVERNMENT

The notion that AI can be exploited to develop autonomous weapons is very real. But just because we are able to create these terminators, it does not mean we should weaponize AI. 

The pervasiveness of artificial intelligence, from image recognition to natural language processing, will augment government’s potential – from transportation and fighting terrorism, to education and healthcare. 

On the flip side, as progress in AI accelerates from narrow intelligence (specializing in singular tasks) to general intelligence (being as smart as humans), its ethical usage – for instance, whether government should use it to build smart weapons for warfare – has become a key area of debate.

These are just a few of the many outstanding presentations you will hear in BIGIT GOV 2020. 

 

Themed The Rise of AI Government, BIGIT GOV 2020 aptly describes the current state of big data and AI adoption among Asian governments. We are beginning to discover many high-value advanced analytics and AI-augmented solutions that are catalysts to government transformation. 

Come join us for BIGIT GOV 2020. Listen to how AI will power super-intelligent societies and precision agriculture. Be impressed by how AI-equipped financial regulators detect dirty money. Be assured by how data science and AI will keep an eye on child abuse. 

Come join us in lively panel discussions on whether AI can think creatively, and whether government should play a pivotal role in addressing data and AI ethics. 

And so much more.

11:30AM | Stamping out property and housing inefficiencies with big data and AI

EXPERT PRESENTATION:  CITIES DECODED

How do you improve city planning and guarantee sustainable urban ecosystems? An approach would be to ingest and analyse big city data – supported by AI. Listen to this expert presentation on how data and machine learning are applied to offer deep understanding of a city such as property market inefficiencies, and how these insights help developers and legislators make better decisions. 

12:00PM | Robots and AI in agriculture: A giant leap toward producing more with less

EXPERT PRESENTATION:  SMART FARMING

Conventional farming supplies the same amounts of water and fertilizer to all the plants in the field even though each plant sucks up nutrients differently. Precision agriculture helps planters personalise farming. Listen to this expert presentation on how AI is used by farmers to determine how, when and where to plant, water, fertilize and harvest – to maximize crop yield.

12:30PM | NETWORKING LUNCH SESSION
2:00PM | Case Study: Malaysian Health Data Warehouse Uplifting citizens' well-being through advanced healthcare analytics

EXPERT PRESENTATION:  ADVANCE HEALTH ANALYTICS

The Malaysian Health Data Warehouse (MyHDW) was conceived as a single source of truth for healthcare data from public and private clinics and hospitals. To date, data on 60 million patient visits have been amassed. Listen to this expert presentation on how MyHDW is now in its next phase of deploying a virtual advanced analytics environment for evidence-based healthcare decision making.

3:00PM | AFTERNOON REFRESHMENT BREAK
3:30PM |Conceptualizing 5G's data-driven use cases to reshape industries and governments

EXPERT PRESENTATION:  5G REVOLUTION

Disruptive technologies come and go. Today, it is AI and 5G. Tomorrow, it may be quantum computing. We do not simply board the technology hype train as it would almost certainly lead us into the abyss of failure. Listen to this expert presentation on how industries and governments must align their strategies to exploit the 5G advantage.

4:00PM |Panel Discussion: Can AI think creatively?

EXPERT PRESENTATION:  5G REVOLUTION

The AI we encounter today is narrow AI, programmed to perform very specific tasks it was trained for. But will AI one day encroach into the space that we consider uniquely human? Yes, we are referring to creativity. Join us in this panel discussion on what it means to be creative, and whether machines can ever truly be creative, in a human sense.

DAY 2 | 26 MARCH 2020

8:00AM | REGISTRATION AND MORNING COFFEE
8:55AM | WELCOMING back REMARKS
9:00AM | Protecting our workforce in the face AI and fluctuating roles

KEYNOTE: AI THE JOB KILLER?

We worry about AI and robots stealing our jobs. But this fear is groundless. Listen to this expert presentation on how humans, in fact, can take advantage of AI as a tool to lift themselves out of mind-numbing, dirty, dangerous and repetitive tasks. And how we can exploit AI to augment our own intelligence. The only caveat? Don’t be complacent.

9:30AM | How AI-powered financial regulators detect dirty money

KEYNOTE: FINANCIAL CRIME RISK

US$600 billion to US$1.5 trillion are laundered yearly.
