You already know our April issue holds the world's first app-less AR hologram of our cover star Nikolaj-Coster Waldau. In addition, Esquire Singapore is also the first in the industry to launch a print issue edited by an artificially intelligent bot. It's pretty exciting stuff.
Introducing an industry first: AI Editor Squire
Specifically created for us by AI consulting company QLX, our artificially intelligent editor bot curated algorithm-based content for the team to write, and contributed its own stories as well. You read that right. AI Squire wrote its own articles. Even answered some of our toughest questions: do you dream of taking over the world and enslaving mankind? Grab a copy of the April 'AI' issue to read its response.
“The whole journey of working on AI Squire has been fascinating,” shares editor-in-chief Norman Tan. “The speed and efficiency of AI Squire’s writing is unmatched—it completed each story in just a few minutes! And AI Squire is only three months old. Imagine if we kept feeding it thousands of stories for it to learn and adapt over the course of a year? We have only scratched the surface.”

With complimentary round speed boat transfers, buffet breakfast and dinner on both days sans soft beverages, the stay is worth over SGD7948 in total. Dates have one year validity and are subject to availability. Flights are not included.
