In a contribution for TODAY’s Science section, Associate Professor Ng Teck Khim from the Department of Computer Science explains the benefit of computer-vision technology, which can be used to automatically process photographs or videos so that the physical measurements of objects in the scene can be computed and their 3D shapes recovered.
In a contribution for TODAY’s Science section, Associate Professor Anindya Datte from the Department of Information Systems writes that he and a group of scientists at NUS launched Mobilewalla, a media technology start-up venture. They invented an entirely new class of big-data techniques to measure app audiences. With this method, they are able to find mobile applications that have a high likelihood of possessing similar audience characteristics.

National University of Singapore researchers Yi Song, Associate Professor Stephane Bressan as well as Daniel Dahlmeier of SAP take a look at one of the big problems with so-called “anonymised” data: the way spatial correlations in mobile data can be used to re-identify individuals in large data sets. The paper which they wrote suggests that individuals can be easily re-identified from large mobile datasets, and that such detailed data poses ‘serious privacy risks’.
Mobilewalla, an NUS start-up co-founded by Associate Professor Anindya Datta from the School of Computing in 2010, was recognised as the “Enabling Technology Company of the Year in Mobile” at the Mobile Marketing Association’s 2014 SMARTIES APAC awards in early September.
