Keynote: Big data and AI: The future of business

Ms. Mah Kam Lin’s presentation on the application and usage of data for long-term strategic planning purposes. Data is a flexible, contextual and sensitive resource that can be used to draw micro-scale insights or macro-scale conclusions and inferences across wide markets, demographics and industry segments.However, it is important to distinguish between false leads and conclusions based on pertinent findings. Business leaders, movers and shakers must learn the importance of sifting through random correlation to find insightful causation - a task which can be optimised with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI).Conclusions can also be drawn from incidental and auxiliary data that do not immediately appear to provide useful information, but can be modelled to find implicit connections producing valuable results and actionable programmes.This keynote session will take place in the Digital Innovation theatre.

The Role of Professional Services in Developing Digital Economies

A key driver of regional growth will come from the rise of e-commerce and the digital economy. Businesses that want to seize opportunities from this growth can move faster and more securely by using not only internal know-how but independent external professional business and advisory services provided by consultants and experts (including professional accountants). ACCA has published a research report, supported by the SAC (Singapore Accountancy Commission), which examined market demand for these services in Singapore, the ASEAN region and China for the next 3 years and beyond. It highlights the most demanded professional services, based on corporate budgets; and provides advice on how consultancies, including SMPs (Small and medium-sized (accounting) practices), can enhance their service delivery. It also provides feedback to businesses on areas where other businesses, including their competitors, are leveraging on external advice to give them a competitive edge. This presentation segment will provide key highlights of this report; against the backdrop of digital transformations that are taking place in many enterprises.
