The High-Performance Computing Artificial Intelligence Innovation Challenge by NSCC offers innovators the opportunity to harness high-performance computing resources and accelerate the creation of transformative AI solutions, addressing one or more of the following challenge statements:


  • Manufacturing, Trade and Connectivity

As we journey towards the Singapore Economy 2030 Vision, with the four key pillars of Trade, Enterprise, Manufacturing, and Services, this technological convergence will guide us to chart the next lap of growth, empowering businesses to thrive and innovate in a rapidly evolving landscape.

  • Human Health & Potential

The convergence of High-Performance Computing and Artificial Intelligence offers transformative capabilities that are revolutionising the healthcare industry, optimising patient care, and unlocking the potential of human health and capabilities in unprecedented ways. 

  • Smart Nation & Digital Economy

In a digitally advanced Singapore, people are empowered to live meaningful and fulfilling lives, seamlessly enabled by technology, which opens exciting opportunities for everyone. This Digital-first approach integrates a Digital Government, Digital Economy, and Digital Society, leveraging technology to bring transformation in health, transport, urban living, government services, and businesses.

  • Urban Solutions and Sustainability

Integrating artificial intelligence and high performance computing with initiatives such as The Singapore Green Plan 2030, which includes five key programs – City in Nature, Energy Reset, Sustainable Living, Green Economy, and Resilient Future – Singapore can spearhead the development of smarter, more resilient, and eco-friendly environments, leading to a greener and more sustainable planet for future generations.
