Curious about what the summit entailed and what it was about? Over the course of two days, our Chief Data Officer, Dylan T. W. Chan, and Chief FinTech Officer, Lim Jing Wei, had the opportunity to engage with thought leaders in the industry. They listened to inspiring speeches from industry pioneers, including CEO Kenny Tay from the Singapore Digital Chamber of Commerce, Principal Data Scientist, Nitish Ramkumar, from the London Stock Exchange Group, and Vice President, Jerry Ping, from the SGX Group. The summit covered a range of trending topics, including data sustainability, the latest trends and journeys in AI, data transformation, and data democratization. During breaks, Dylan and Jing Wei took the opportunity to explore the exhibition hall, where they observed firsthand how organizations across Singapore are leveraging the latest developments in technology. They interacted with various exhibitors, gaining insights into cutting-edge AI applications and data analytics solutions. They also had the chance to network with different individuals and organizations.
The BYTES Big Data Analytics & AI Summit was more than just an event; it was an enlightening journey into the rapidly evolving landscape of AI and big data.
