About this event

Artificial Intelligence is more than just a buzzword—it's the catalyst for a new technological revolution poised to profoundly transform our work and daily lives. This revolution is unfolding before our eyes, promising impacts that may surpass even those of the past technological and industrial revolutions.

But what does this mean for businesses and startups in the region? How will AI reshape various sectors? Where are the opportunities, and how can startups and businesses adapt to stay ahead of the curve?

Join us at BLOCK71 on the afternoon of July 2nd, starting at 3pm SGT, where we will discuss all this and more. This event will be a comprehensive exploration of the opportunities for startups with an introduction on the 3rd annual Pazhou Algorithm Competition (top prize $70k USD), a panel discussion with those in the AI space, Quickfire Pitches and networking opportunities with the Block71 and Startup Grind Singapore communities and representatives from the competition.
