Nine awardees are selected in AY23 across all the NYU schools, and Dr. Sun is among the three awardees under the Social Science category.
Sound and music have always been a big part of Wang Ye’s life, guiding him through a career that has spanned being a research engineer at Nokia in Finland to an associate professor at NUS’s School of Computing. “Everybody, including myself, likes music,” says Wang, who leads the Sound and Music Computing Lab.
In the summer of 1983, the government organisation Atomic Energy of Canada Limited launched its newest radiation therapy machine. The Therac-25 was highly anticipated — it boasted a revolutionary dual treatment mode (employing either a powerful electron beam or X-rays to kill cancer cells), was more compact than its predecessors, and could be controlled entirely by a computer.
The past few years have been a mixed bag for facial recognition. In 2017, the technology stepped into the global spotlight as Apple launched the iPhone X — its first smartphone to rely on face, rather than fingerprint, scanning for authentication.
28 March 2023 – Lee Kong Chian Centennial Professor Ooi Beng Chin from the NUS School of Computing has been elected as Fellow of the prestigious Academy of Engineering, Singapore (SAEng) in February 2023. The SAEng serves as a think tank on engineering-related public policy and steers initiatives in the areas of strategic importance to Singapore so as to meet the challenges of the new millennium.
When Covid-19 came barrelling through the world, it upended nearly every aspect of our lives, forcing us to live, work, and play in completely new ways. We became accustomed to things we previously held off as a last resort or long resisted — things like face masks, Zoom, and having our movements monitored.
23 March 2023 — NUS Computing Assistant Professor Yang You and Ph.D. students, along with collaborators from Bytedance, has won the Distinguished Paper award for their paper on click-through rate (CTR) model training.
If you awoke this morning feeling a little more tired than usual, you might have glanced at your FitBit to see how many REM sleep cycles you clocked last night. Perhaps you then stumbled into the kitchen to grab an espresso (brewed fresh while you were getting dressed, thanks to a nifty app on your phone). And as you do, your smart fridge announces that you’re running out of milk, so you tell Alexa to add it to the weekly shopping list.
6 February 2023 – NUS Computing Ph.D. student Zhong Yuyi won second place in the Student Research Competition at the ACM SIGPPLAN Conference on Systems, Programming, Languages, and Application: Software for Humanity (SPLASH), for her paper on neural network verification.

19 January 2023 – Minister of State Gan Siow Huang recently officiated at the launch of the Centre for Nurturing Computing Excellence (CeNCE), a learning space established in February 2022 by the NUS School of Computing (NUS Computing) to develop core computing competencies among both pre-university and university students.
10 January 2023 – Associate Professor Goh Khim Yong and Ph.D. student Guo Yutong who are both from the Department of Information Systems and Analytics (DISA), won the Best Paper Award in the Digital and Mobile Commerce track and the Best Conference Paper Award at the 2022 International Conference Information Systems (ICIS).
4 January 2023 — Professor Xiao Xiaokui from the Department of Computer Science has been elevated to an IEEE Fellow for his contributions to data privacy and graph data management.
An IEEE Fellow is a prestigious position reserved for select IEEE members who have contributed immensely to the field of engineering, science, and technology. Less than 0.1% of voting members are selected annually for this member grade elevation.
As any Ph.D. student will tell you, paychecks at that level aren’t especially generous. “I was always trying to find cheaper alternatives for household items,” recalls Lim Shi Ying of her doctoral student days at the University of Texas at Austin.
Imagine that you’re a book publisher gathering feedback for a new novel that your firm has recently released. Sales figures are useful, but you’re keen to find out more about what people actually think of the book. So you gather Amazon-style reviews, asking respondents to rate it on a scale of one to five.
21 December 2022 — NUS Computing teams brought back great results from the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) Asia Ho Chi Minh Regional Contest 2022 held from 8 to 9 December 2022.
ICPC is the world’s oldest and most established algorithmic programming contest for university students. Teams of three university students race against the clock to solve as many of the algorithmic problems presented. Top-scoring teams from the ICPC regional contests will receive the opportunity to compete in the contest's annual global championship round—the ICPC World Finals.
For the most part, Henrik Huseby was an average, hardworking man — a small business owner making a modest living repairing iPhones and MacBooks in Ski, a tiny city in Norway with a population of roughly 20,000.
