SINGAPORE- MediaOutReach - 13 November2018 - During yesterdayevening's airing of "Hello Singapore" , LIC Chain founder, Dr Peggy Peng predictedthat the language service industry will be Singapore's new economic growthpoint, especially when basing this aspect on Blockchain Technology.
The episode was adiscussion on Blockchain featuring Dr.Peng, alongside with Singapore ManagementUniversity's (SMU) finance professor, Hu Jian Feng.
While discussing aboutthe topic of why make use of Blockchain Technology in language serviceindustry, Dr.Peng said, "The language service industry is naturallydecentralized because of its fragmented usage scenarios. Therefore no translationcompany can cover all scenarios and dominate the market. Overall, Blockchainand language service industry are a match in heaven because of their decentralizationnatures."
When asked about theimpact to Singapore brought by Blockchain, Dr.Peng answered, "Blockchain is a historicopportunity that Singapore should seize upon, just as it did in the past whenit grabbed the opportunity to become a shipping and finance hub which help it becamea developed nation within 50 years of independence.
"We are now in the Blockchainera, and Singapore should once again move quickly to cement itself as not justa Blockchain hub, but also as a global language information hub," said Dr.Peng.The reason is due to Singapore being a multi-cultural society with a bilingualeducation system.
With Singapore'sunique bilingual education, every Singaporean will have a chance to gettranslation jobs from around the world via LIC's public chain. As the public chainbrings global talents and jobs together, this will create plenty of jobopportunities for Singaporeans. If Singapore can be a global language hub, itcan also be a global information hub as language conveys information.
Not only that,talents in AI and Blockchain will be drawn to Singapore, thereby invigoratingthe Blockchain scene in Singapore. With language and IT talents moving toSingapore, this will help create a new economic hub for Singapore.
