NEW - COVID-19 Initiative: The 100E cash contribution from local companies is reduced to 10%.

100 Experiments

100 Experiments (100E) is AI Singapore’s flagship programme to solve industries’ artificial intelligence (AI) problem statements and help them build their own AI teams.

An organisation can propose 100E problem statements where no commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) AI solution exists, but they can potentially be solved by Singapore’s ecosystem of researchers and AI Singapore’s engineering team within 9 to 18 months.

AI Singapore will provide 1:1 funding of up to SGD$250,000 per 100E project for the Principal Investigators (PI) from Singapore’s autonomous universities and A*STAR research institutes to work on the organisation’s problem statement. The organisation is required to match the funding amount through in-kind (AI/engineering/IT/domain manpower) and cash contributions.

Under the COVID-19 initiative, the cash contribution from local companies is reduced to 10%.  

AI Singapore will assist the organisation with:

  • Defining the Problem Statement 
  • Finding the Principal Investigator
  • Building and deploying an AI engineering team
  • Infrastructure design and architecture (if required)
In Progress

100E is a collaborative model
to co-create AI solutions

100E Tracks Aligned with AI Apprenticeship Programme (AIAP)

To simplify and accelerate the 100E processes, we have designed two 100E programme tracks closely aligned with the AIAP:

100E For Research (100E4R)

In 100E4R, the industry problem statement is novel and requires extensive research by the PI and a MVP can be delivered within 18 months. The PI will work on the problem statement with his team of postdoctoral researchers, Research Fellows, PhD students and/or Research Assistants alongside with the AI Singapore engineering team. The AIAP apprentices from different AIAP intakes may be assigned to work on the project, due to a longer project timeline.

100E For Industry(100E4I)

In 100E4I, the industry problem statement research component is less intensive and the AI Singapore engineering team will be able to undertake the project end-to-end assisted by a PI on a consultancy basis if and when required. The project will be completed with the delivery of a MVP in 9 months.

In both programmes, the organisation is encouraged to make a conditional offer of hire to the apprentices assigned to the organisation’s 100E projects.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is 100experiments Programme?

The 100Experiments (100E) programme is to encourage companies (Project Sponsors) in Singapore to embark on the AI/ML journey by leveraging the AI/ML researchers (Project Performers) in the universities and research ecosystem in Singapore.

Is this a grant?

AI Singapore does not provide any grants/cash to the companies – what we want to do is to fund a research/engineering team in the universities to work on a specific AI product or AI service leading to Minimum Viable Product (MVP) in 9-months or 18-months.
