Written by: Circles.Life

Singapore has always been forward-thinking, and its attitude toward adopting technological advances reflects this. For sure, there are many ways in which Singapore is ahead of the rest of the world when it comes to utilizing the newest tech. Read on to find out how, and welcome to the future. It’s nice to see you here.


What is 5G?

5G is the 5th generation of mobile networks. It's more advanced than its predecessors 1G-4G and features benefits such as faster data speeds, reduced latency, better reliability, and increased capacity. In summary, it's the fastest, best mobile network available globally right now.

How is 5G being used in Singapore?

Here in Singapore, we were one of the first regions to introduce 5G on a nationwide basis, meaning residents of Singapore have access to 5G with more reliability than most of the rest of the world.

Circles.Life is also the first digital telco to offer 5G on eSIM! Not to brag, but we’re a pretty big deal.

How is 5G benefiting Singaporeans?

There are so many reasons why the technological advancement of 5G is helping Singaporeans in 2023.

More powerful Internet of Things

5G is being used to power the IoT or Internet of Things, which means those of us with access to 5G compatible phones will have unprecedented control over our households like never before.

Indeed, by using 5G in this way you can control lighting, send a forgotten load of laundry around, and even make sure your home is perfectly cool while you commute back from work.

Smart City Planning, And Connected Self-Driving Vehicles

Last, of all, 5G is being used to facilitate smart city planning, including self-driving vehicles that are connected, enabling better safety, early warning systems, and even better traffic flow control.

Which means, 5G could help make getting stuck in a traffic jam on your way to work a thing of the past.

AI (Artificial intelligence)

Now, AI is until recently very much something that was associated with some far-off technological future. Yet, right now in 2023, we see AI being used not only globally but within our city!

What is AI?

AI is short for artificial intelligence. In short, it is computers simulating human intelligence, and they can learn in a very similar way to how we do. ChatGPT, that you?

How does AI benefit Singaporeans in 2023?

AI in healthcare in Singapore

One of the ways the residents of Singapore live in a futuristic way is the current use of AI in healthcare provision. It's already being used for a variety of purposes including diagnosis of conditions such as diabetes, and skin cancer, and even analysis of chest x-rays. All of which it can do accurately and effectively.

Additionally AI is being used to help reduce the cognitive load on doctors and other medical professionals by providing more efficient filtering of the huge amount of reports and paperwork that is associated with the medical profession.

In this way, AI will allow human medical professionals to focus on the most crucial aspects of their role while making sure the standard of patient care remains high.

AR (Augmented Reality)

What is AR?

AR or augmented reality is the use of virtual enhancements including graphics, text, and audio in real time over real word objects. Put simply, AR enhances or ‘augments’ the real world.

How is AR being used in Singapore?

The chance is that if you live in Singapore, then you have already come across some of the current real-world uses of AR. You probably already know someone that plays PokemonGo which has its own AR feature to enhance the experience of the game.

AR in Tourism

In addition to games like POGO, AR is being used for plenty of other things as well, including to increase engagement in the tourism sector. Primarily run by Buzz AR in conjunction with the Singapore Tourism Board you’ll find numerous AR avatar campaigns running across the city. All you have to do is use your phone’s AR capability to interact with them.

Changi Airport AR Smart Glasses

Then there are the world-famous smart glasses that have been in use as far back as 2017. These smart glasses are designed to deliver AR functionality to the ramp operation workers at the airport and provide them with many advantages.

The first is that they can access loading instructions for specific cargo in real-time. While the second is that they can use the glasses to scan luggage and quickly and easily check for specific markers, something that means they have access to more information and can make decisions that impact safety much more easily. Lastly, operations workers can use the glasses to live stream what they see, allowing better supervision and direction from the control center.

So yeap, we’re living in the future, and it’s a matter of time before the robots take over. KIDDING.

If you’re ready for the next step in tech, make sure you got the best network for it. Try our 5G for free for a limited time. You’ll love it here.
