China artificial intelligence (AI) company SenseTime has inked memoranda of understanding (MOU) with Nanyang Technological University (NTU), National Supercomputing Centre of Singapore (NSCC) and Singtel.

Under the agreement, the parties will leverage their strengths and customer bases to drive AI research, accelerate digitalisation for both established corporates and SMEs, and develop AI-based solutions catering to industrial and institutional needs in Singapore and Asia.

As Singapore has strong commitment in advancing AI research and applications, SenseTime views its footprint in Singapore a critical step to the company’s international expansion. With the recent launch of the Singapore operations, SenseTime aims to join hands with government, academia, research, and industry.

“As Singapore serves as SenseTime’s international hub, we’re committed to building an AI ecosystem with our local partners and servicing our customers with leading AI technologies. We look forward to promoting the development of AI in the Asean region with their partnerships,” said Martin Huang, Managing Director of SenseTime Singapore.

The signing of these MOU is quite significant for SenseTime’s Singapore operations as well as the company’s international expansion. Spanning a wide range of academia, industry and government agencies, these partnerships will likely play an important role in accelerating AI developments in Asia.
