Taking programming out of this world 👽: Teaching computational thinking with Source Academy

NUS Computing freshmen go on intergalactic adventures as part of the Source Academy, an immersive online programming game developed by Associate Professor Martin Henz. Recently, the team behind Source Academy also won the faculty-wide Annual Digital Education Award (Team) for the academic year 2020/2021. 

Measuring The Way You Walk

Keen to up your running game?

This cool ‘wearable’ mobile gait analysis device - developed by NUS Computing Lecturer, Dr Boyd Anderson - can measure the position, acceleration and rotation of your feet as you’re walking, running, or playing sports!

To get to his office, Jun Han has to walk down a long windowless corridor. There are office rooms on either side, but the doors are often closed, making the whole thing “quite hollow.” One day, as Han was unlocking his door and his key made a droop sound when it entered the lock, a thought crossed his mind: “Wow, this is really loud.”

How can you get your next great idea? One way is to ask other people, and many of them, even a crowd. Crowdsourcing — harnessing the wisdom of the crowd to attain a common goal — is used for an impressive array of tasks, from learning how to eat sustainably, to redesigning cities with open government, creating apps with hackathons, and annotating data for machine learning. When you need help in such instances, you are almost guaranteed to find a ready army of volunteers online.

    There have been many moments of disbelief throughout the pandemic, but one of the most shocking ones happened last April, when then U.S. President Donald Trump suggested that disinfectants could be a cure for Covid-19.

  • Predicting When Rare and Multiple Diseases Happen At Once

    To say that the human body is an intricate complicated system would be an understatement. When one thing goes wrong, others often follow suit. So in 1970 when Alvan Feinstein first coined the term ‘comorbidity’ — to refer to a person having multiple diseases at the same time — it wasn’t too revolutionary a concept.
