The Oxford – Singapore Human-Machine Collaboration Initiative (HMC) is an international university-industry-investment collaboration. This programme is multidisciplinary: driven by computer and engineering sciences, and utilises the enabling technologies of artificial intelligence & robotics. 

We aim to revolutionize the approach to world-leading research, education, innovation and commercialisation in AI and robotics by providing a platform for a large-scale, international research-innovation-venture collaboration. 

As a catalyst, this initiative will not only advance solutions in artificial intelligence, robotics and autonomous systems, it will produce a new generation of highly trained researchers, engineers and entrepreneurs. They will be the evangelists for the human-machine collaboration technologies, the AI tools and high-performance computing platforms in transformational technologies. They will create value and increase productivity in HighTech logistic and emergency response services, EdTech, ScienceTech, GovTech, InsureTech, LegalTech, HealthTech, SpaceTech, CreaTech, SustainTech and RetailTech solutions. 

Please contact for more information and collaboration opportunities. 

Please see the AIBotics 2020 website for more details.
