Launch of the AI Readiness Index by AI Singapore

AI Singapore (AISG), the national programme in AI research and industry development, has launched the AI Readiness Index. AIRI is an industry-focused AI readiness assessment framework that distils the critical success factors for AI adoption based on their engagements with companies across different industries, sizes, and AI readiness.

It allows business units and organisations to assess their AI readiness and identify the gap between their current and desired state, thereby enabling them to understand their suitable approaches to adopt AI and implement targeted programmes to increase AI readiness.
IES Members are invited to take part in the assessment
