SINGAPORE (Apr 24): Singapore’s Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) is partnering London-based Centre for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CFTE) to launch a new AI in Finance (AIF) course.

The AIF course will be a fully online that comprises 18 modules, for financial institutions seeking to update their staff on artificial intelligence (AI) developments in their industry.

Included in the programme, over 20 finance and technology thought leaders and insiders will come together to share key fundamentals and real-life case studies on how AI is reshaping the finance industry worldwide.

Currently, the course is accredited by SkillsFuture Singapore and is in the process of obtaining accreditation with The Institute of Banking and Finance Singapore.

Ahead of its official launch, AIF has received positive support from Singapore’s banking sector. Two local banks – OCBC and UOB – have come on board as anchor sponsors for this programme.

Patrice Choong, director for The Sandbox, NP’s innovation and enterprise office that is spearheading the programme says, “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.”
