Traditionally, the Asia Pacific (APAC) region has lagged behind North America or Europe in terms of technology adoption. Artificial intelligence (AI) is most likely the one technology area where APAC could be the leading region globally within the next decade. The APAC region holds 60% of the world’s population and, therefore, any major technological shifts like those being heralded by AI are likely to shape the future of the region.

Most of the impetus will come from China, as it pushes the accelerator on its plans to become a science and technology powerhouse and recognizes the role of AI in driving its ambitions. While China is leading most of the headlines, countries like Japan, South Korea, India, Taiwan, and Singapore have also shifted their focus toward AI, all of them announcing national AI strategies. Within APAC, AI has a major role to play in transforming healthcare, agriculture, and education where AI will help find better cures for diseases, democratize access to healthcare, improve crop yields, and help personalize education for all. AI is also likely to boost traditional industries like telecom, retail, advertising, automotive, business services, and consumer sectors. The public sector is also expected to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of AI in APAC, helping cities leapfrog their Western counterparts in terms of smart intelligent services and improved standards of living.
