It continues to investigate innovation frontiers like artificial intelligence (AI), cloud/quantum computing, data analytics, and other technologies that could aid its digital economy.

With this, GovTech Singapore has promoted some tech activities to keep the young ones entertained -a good investment for their time and effort.

SPF Anti-Scam Games: ‘Scambat’ and ‘Scam Me If You Can’

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) is always looking for novel approaches to educate the public about fraud. Recently, they introduced two new games tag as “ScamBat” and “Scam Me If You Can,” which are meant to increase their touchpoints and effectively build the bonds between SPF and the public, notably the younger generations, through engaging and educational activities.

“ScamBat” was created in collaboration with students from Singapore Polytechnic’s Media, Arts & Design School. It is an analogue card game for many players that exposes participants to various scams. All elementary, secondary, and tertiary schools, polytechnics, and universities will receive copies across the entire island.

Through the planned physical outreach and engagement initiatives of the Neighbourhood Police Centres (NPCs), the public will also obtain the “ScamBat” set.

On “Scam Me If You Can,” on the other hand, is a five-minute single-player game played on a mobile touchscreen kiosk. Players can power up by taking anti-scam quizzes while they swipe to match tiles and earn points. Players have a chance to win a secret prize from the machine after passing the tests.

For a month, SPF will simultaneously deploy two kiosks in two distinct public areas with substantial foot traffic before moving to the following two places.
