Synopsis: Ngee Ann Polytechnic collaborated with a local artificial intelligence company, Impress.AI to launch EVA, the first-of-its-kind virtual assistant that provides support for the Early Admissions Exercise (EAE). The virtual assistant will review the applicants’ write-ups and allow them to highlight their passions and aptitudes via an online chat. The three academic schools participating in the pilot of EVA for this year’s EAE are Business & Accountancy (BA), Film & Media Studies (FMS) and Health Sciences (HS). As the first polytechnic to employ the use of AI technology in EAE, NP’s Principal, Mr Clarence Ti, hopes that the deployment of AI technology will help increase engagement with prospective students.
