Three forums were held in Korea, Singapore and Germany prior to the official kickoff of the World Artificial Intelligence Conference 2020 on Thursday, with experts discussing topics from AI application scenarios to cross-border AI collaboration, according to a news release by the organizing committee released on Tuesday, also known as "WAIC2020 Global Day".

The release stated that representatives attending the forum in Singapore mapped out AI's widespread adoption throughout retail, medical care, education and financial services, and vowed to strengthen cooperation with China, and especially Shanghai, a city aiming to build itself into a global AI highland.

A total of five international exchange programs are scheduled to be held before and after the conference commences. These include an international summit on smart city, investment, AI innovation salon, international talent and a special roadshow for promising AI projects.

At least three cooperation deals are expected to be signed during the end of the conference, the committee said.
