Singapore: Tech in the Creative Arts

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The creative arts industry is heavily impacted by the transformative power of technology, especially artificial intelligence (AI) and digital breakthroughs, which bring both opportunities and difficulties. Concerns about potential employment displacement, intellectual property protection, and the requirement to adapt to AI-driven developments are at the forefront as the creative landscape transforms.

Embracing this dynamic, educational institutions are integrating technology into the classroom, making sure students are prepared for the altering creative landscape, according to Josephine Teo, Minister for Communications and Information (MCI).

She continued by pointing out the numerous projects fusing computational design, data visualisation, and generative AI, as well as the embracement of virtual and augmented reality for immersive experiences in fashion, film, animation, and performing arts.

“Absolute futureproofing is still elusive in the era of fast change since technology is ever evolving. Nevertheless, lifelong learning is the cure. Instead of avoiding AI and digital growth, the emphasis is on comprehending their effects and using them to one’s benefit,” Minister Josephine said.

The role of technology in task automation, the Minister continued, provides insight into its prospective advantages. Processes can be made more efficient through automation, which boosts output and makes opportunities for creative endeavours. Looking back in time, technical development has continually increased production and created new job prospects.

According to the Minister, recent graduates are entering uncharted territory as positions like UI/UX Designers, Drone Videographers, and AR and VR Artists become more popular. With a significant fraction of today’s roles having no predecessor in previous generations, the evolution of job positions highlights the volatility of modern employment.

Parents and mentors might not understand how to navigate these unusual professions, but adaptation and ongoing learning are the ultimate indicators of success. Technology’s fusion with creativity offers limitless options as graduates set off on their journeys, but only if they remain open and receptive to new innovations.

The Minister added that the MCI and the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) provide the SG Digital Scholarship to students wanting to dig deeper into tech and media-related studies, fostering global brilliance with international exposure.  This esteemed scholarship is designed for people who have a burning desire to learn more about the fields of technology and media-related subjects.

The SG Digital Scholarship aims to develop a new generation of individuals prepared for global greatness and foster Singapore’s vibrant, inventive, and forward-thinking digital landscape.

The SG Digital Scholarship places a strong emphasis on promoting global exposure, which is one of its distinguishing qualities. In contrast to being restricted to traditional classroom settings, students starting this educational path are encouraged to spread their wings and investigate options abroad.

Their perspectives are broadened by this exposure, which also gives them a thorough awareness of the media and technical environments around the world. Students who study abroad obtain insightful knowledge of various cultures, cutting-edge technologies, and emerging trends, enabling them to return to Singapore with new insights and creative ideas.

The SG Digital Scholarship provides a way for people already deeply involved in media content creation to hone their craft. The scholarship equips recipients with the tools they need to hone their creative abilities, strengthen their storytelling prowess, and remain at the forefront of changing media platforms through a variety of specialised programmes, workshops, and mentorship opportunities.

The SG Digital Scholarship also acknowledges the cross-disciplinary nature of the media and technology sector. It fosters cooperation between several disciplines, including computer science, design, communications, and data analytics. “Scholars are more than just passive consumers of knowledge; they are also interdisciplinary project leaders who use technology to sculpt and reimagine media experiences,” said Minister Josephine.
