NUS Computing: An Origin Story

In 2018, NUS Computing celebrated its 20th anniversary since the school's establishment. However, our roots can be traced all the way back to 1975. Follow our school mascot, SOCcat, as she travels through NUS Computing's history in computer game fashion.

The Price of Diversity: HDB Flats

In Singapore, the Housing Development Board imposes an ethnic quota on public housing flats to ensure that there is an equal number of families from the country's four major ethnic groups. Does this ethnic quota affect home buyers from getting their dream home, and if so, how much of an impact does it create? NUS Computing researcher Assistant Professor Yair Zick shares his research insights on this topic.

Our brain can easily estimate the 3D position and the orientation of the objects we see. This task, however, is non-trivial for computers and robots. Computer scientists have been working on the problem of recovering the 3D position and orientation of objects in data captured from image sensors for years. This problem, formulated as the ‘pose estimation’ problem, is important because recovering the position and orientation of objects in a scene is often a necessary step to understanding the scene.

Mention “Bayesian Optimisation” to Professor Bryan Low Kian Hsiang and he begins to talk about baking cookies. That’s because to the uninitiated, concepts such as “distributed batch Gaussian process optimisation” and “decentralised high-dimensional Bayesian optimisation” can sound either downright intimidating or like pure gobbledygook.
