Explainable AI gets more human-centric — thanks to cognitive psychology

28 April 2022 Department of Computer Science , Faculty , Research , Feature , Artificial Intelligence

Imagine if Amazon Alexa could recommend a tub of ice cream or Siri could play a cheerful song if they hear sadness in your voice. AI voice recognition can now recognise emotions with very high accuracy. Yet it is not correct all the time, and this begs the question of how it make its decisions.

Walk, Watch, Learn: On-the-go video learning

20 April 2022 Department of Computer Science , Faculty , Research , Feature , Artificial Intelligence

 

As COVID crept across the world, confining people to their homes and chaining them to their desks — for work, school, and play — Zhao Shengdong was no exception. Involved in class after online class, the associate professor at NUS Computing and his PhD student Ashwin Ram soon began to wonder: What can we do to enhance the online learning experience? Instead of a static setting, could people learn dynamically on-the-go instead?

An AI that can read your emotions? Putting safeguards in place

21 January 2022 Department of Information Systems & Analytics , Faculty , Research , Feature , Artificial Intelligence

 

In recent years, some companies, including Amazon, JP Morgan, and Unilever, began asking prospective employees to do a curious thing — to film themselves answering a fixed set of questions. The firms would then run the videos through an AI-powered software, scanning faces and eye movements for signs of empathy, dependability, and other ‘desirable’ personality traits.

From scoring 109 at PSLE to earning honours degree at NUS: Man shares his learning journey

29 June 2021 Department of Information Systems & Analytics , News Media , Artificial Intelligence , Computational Social Science

 

Some believed Chan Wei Zhang would never succeed academically after he was placed in the lowest stream in primary five and later scored 109 for the Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE). However, they would be wrong. Chan, now 28, will graduate from the National University of Singapore (NUS) with honours next month. In his interview with Lianhe Zaobao, Chan said that he gets "looked at differently" by some people who know about his academic history in primary and secondary school and his ITE education. Therefore, after getting accepted into the NUS School of Computing, he made it his goal to graduate so that he could prove wrong those who believed in stereotypes of the less academically inclined. Chan told The New Paper that he was unsure at first if he could cope with the NUS curriculum given his academic background before adding that "it turned out to be a lot better than expected". During his time at NUS, Chan also volunteered to teach coding and networking basics to children from low-income families, he told Lianhe Zaobao. He will soon graduate from NUS and will be working as a software engineer at a multinational corporation.

Boosting creativity in the crowd with deep learning

04 June 2021 CSFEATURES Department of Computer Science , Faculty , Feature , Artificial Intelligence

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.

In 1961, something momentous happened at a squat, nondescript factory in the tiny town of Ewing, New Jersey. The Unimate, a robotic arm, was fired up for the first time, grabbing pieces of hot metal off an assembly line and welding them onto car bodies while onlookers cheered — the world’s first industrial robot had officially been put to work.

Quantum Physics Gets a Boost from AI

13 November 2020 CSFEATURES Department of Computer Science , Faculty , Research , Feature , Artificial Intelligence

Stéphane Bressan and Christian Miniatura grew up in rival neighbourhoods of the naval garrison town of Toulon in southern France. They went to the same high school and the same college only a few years apart, but never were acquainted until 2006 when they were both working halfway across the world, at the National University of Singapore. Miniatura and Bressan became fast friends, meeting regularly to “put the world to rights” over French food and wine.

“One of our favourite debates was whether artificial intelligence can be useful to quantum physics,” says Bressan, an associate professor at the School of Computing. He was convinced that AI could lend a helping hand in solving some of physics’ longstanding problems. But Miniatura, a quantum physicist by training and the director of the Franco-Singaporean physics laboratory MajuLab, remained perplexed albeit intrigued at the possibility.
