The one-north Festival is an annual celebration of Research, Innovation, Creativity and Enterprise. Jointly organised by A*STAR and JTC, and supported by Science Centre Singapore, this event encouraged the public to immerse in science and technology through fun interactive displays, inspiring talks, workshops and tours for the whole family.
This year's one-north Festival was officially launched by Dr Koh Poh Koon, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Trade and Industry, on 7 September 2018. With the theme of "AI and I", one-north Festival 2018 emphasised the rapid development in Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities, and how this would enhance the way one lives, works and plays. SMS Koh spoke about how one-north was a microcosm of Singapore's innovation-driven economy, and how the festival was an excellent opportunity for members of the public to learn more about exciting developments in science and technology. He also mentioned how efforts in R&and innovation were being supported by a passionate and talented Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) community at one-north.
