YITU Technology (YITU), a pioneer in Artificial Intelligence (AI) research and innovation, launched its first international office in Singapore on Wednesday.

The office will serve as a regional hub for YITU to bring its AI and facial-recognition solutions to customers and partners in Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, Macau and Oceania markets, the company said.

It will also serve as a platform for the company to work with private and public organisations in the region that are looking to deploy intelligent solutions for the digital age.

Lin Chenxi, co-founder of YITU, said that it saw immense potential in Singapore as a market for AI development and innovation, and a springboard to introduce its solutions to the region.

Ang Chin Tah, Director of Infocommunications and Media from the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), said that YITU’s strong capabilities in AI and computer vision made it a valuable addition to Singapore’s growing AI ecosystem.

YITU would develop new solutions across different domains such as security, finance, healthcare, and transportation, in the process creating “exciting new” jobs in the AI sector, Ang said.
