Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP), a Singaporean higher learning institution, has partnered with London-based Centre for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CFTE) to offer the AI in Finance (AIF) course.
The 18-module online course on artificial intelligence aims to support and develop talent in financial technology (fintech) and to boost the fintech sector of Singapore, reports Edge Singapore. It is set to benefit financial institutions that seek to improve their personnel’s knowledge on AI.
NP is SkillsFuture’s sector coordinator for financial services, and it has been searching for partners to co-develop fintech learning programmes.
AIF will bring together over 20 thought leaders in finance and technology to share their knowledge and real-life observations on the impact of AI on the global finance industry. Two major Singaporean banks, OCBC and UOB are anchor sponsors for this programme.
“Although the course is designed to give participants an understanding of the fundamentals of AI, we do not intend it to be a theoretical programme. Instead, it will provide an industry overview of AI, with observations from industry insiders and thought leaders from the US to China,” said Patrice Choong, director of The Sandbox, NP’s innovation and enterprise office.
“Participants will be exposed to industry insights and real-life case studies to ensure that the content is relatable to them,” Choong added. “For example, there are already applications of AI in areas such as insurance, credit scoring, and customer service. All these case studies will form part of the course content and discussion.”
