|SSIA Member Meeting and Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2016|
Dear SSIA Members and Friends,
I am pleased to inform you that the SSIA will be holding its AGM, elections and final Members’ Meeting for the year. The date and venue are as follow:
Date : 30 Nov 16
Time : 4.30 – 6.30pm
Venue : NUSS Suntec Guild House
3 Temasek Boulevard
Suntec City Mall (Tower 5)
The theme for this Members’ meeting is “Applied Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning”. According to Gartner, “The intelligent theme builds on the way in which data science and programming approaches are involving to include AI and advanced machine learning. This is enabling the creation of intelligent physical and software-based systems that are programmed to learn and adapt, rather than programmed only for a finite set of prescribed actions. AI and machine-learning capabilities are seeping into virtually every technology, and represent a major battleground for technology providers over the next five years.” It is with this backdrop that we plan to meet and gain insight into the AI theme and its impact on business and how strategies are being adjusted to leverage on it.
We have put together the following exciting and informative programme for you:
As the AGM and elections will take place in this meeting, members are Strongly Encouraged to turn up to show your support and ensure the quorum can be achieved. This will be a great opportunity to catch up and network with one another! We shall also take this opportunity to bid farewell to our outgoing President, who has been at helm of the SSIA since its founding 11 years ago....
