As Hodan Omaar writes in US News & World Report, U.S. states that have adequate artificial intelligence capabilities—such as Massachusetts or California, which have universities with strong computer science programs, a capable information technology workforce, and some software and IT companies—could benefit by looking east, at a small Asian country already leading in AI.

Just three years after its launch, Singapore’s ambitious AISG, the national research and innovation program pushing for global advantage in AI for the country’s 64 districts, is already funding high-quality research, promoting innovative AI solutions, encouraging small- and medium-sized enterprises to use AI, and continuously developing local AI talent.
