i Light Singapore - Alibaba Cloud's Green AI Solution Illuminates Singapore

Alibaba Cloud is excited to support Urban Redevelopment Authority’s i-Light Singapore 2024, Asia’s leading sustainable light festival.

The 10th Edition of i Light Singapore – Asia’s Leading Sustainable Light Festival

From May 31 to June 23, Alibaba Cloud proudly partnered i Light Singapore – Asia’s Leading Sustainable Light Festival, to showcase the innovative Green AI solution, Energy Expert.

Organised by the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore (URA), i Light Singapore is Asia's leading sustainable light festival which promotes an important message of sustainability and advocates environmentally-conscious ways of life. The Festival celebrated its 10th edition this year and has grown over the years to showcase not just sustainable light art installations, but also an array of complementary programmes.

This dazzling event, attracting throngs of visitors over its three-week run, became a vibrant tapestry of creativity and eco-consciousness. This year’s edition features 25 artists from 11 countries presenting 17 light art installations spread out across Marina Bay and neighbouring precincts. These artworks were inspired by the theme of “Cyclical Nature” and the colour green. They explore the endless potential of everyday objects for re-design, restoration and repurposing.

Fountain of Happiness Light Art Installation - Alibaba Cloud Brand Logo in the Heart of Marina Bay Singapore

Alibaba Cloud's Energy Expert was showcased at the Fountain of Happiness light art installation. Nestled in the heart of Marina Bay, this light art installation overlooked the iconic Marina Bay skyline, offering visitors a mesmerising visual feast. The interactive installation features seven sets of swings and light tubes designed to resemble fountains, as visitors change the installation's colours with each swinging motion.

We were able to leverage on Fountain of Happiness to weave together art, technology, and sustainability in perfect balance. Electric meters were installed at the Fountain of Happiness, which allowed Energy Expert to measure and analyse the installation’s energy consumption patterns in real-time.

AI Chatbot Created by the Energy Expert Team

Energy Expert team developed an AI Chatbot to enhance the visitor experience beyond the physical art installation. This created a digital dimension as the AI chatbot guided visitors into the world of Alibaba Cloud to learn about the Festival and Energy Expert. This bridge between the physical and virtual worlds helped visitors to instantly see the art installation while appreciating the unseen technology behind it. Nearly 3000 people utilised the chatbot, asking the chatbot thousands of related questions, such as on the installation's energy consumption. This was a golden opportunity to pique visitors' interest on Energy Expert.
