Learning Day Presentations and Workshops

To allow you to learn in different ways, our Learning Day has been designed to let you experience a variety of topics in three formats:

1) Presentations

Presentations will feature talks & panel discussions conducted by one or more experts. The presentations cover the key topics in the industry, where you will hear about the latest developments and how you can leverage on them.

2) Workshops

These hands-on workshops offer you a chance to put into practice the skills and techniques that you will learn, so that you can immediately apply them in your workplace. Workshops will be carried out in a smaller group settings as well.

Graduate Programmes Talks

For a deeper learning experience and to fulfil your aspiration of furthering your studies, you may want to join us for our Graduate Programmes Talks, where you can have a taste of the content that is covered in the programmes and have a chance to ask any questions you have on the programmes.

Panel Discussion: Artificial Intelligence – Humanising AI
Moderated by Dr. Leong Mun Kew, Deputy Director and Dr. Barry Shepherd, Chief, Master of Technology in Knowledge Engineering Programme

Panellists: Prof. Li Haizhou, Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering, National University of Singapore and Mr. Laurence Liew, Director, AI Industry Innovation, AI.SG, NUS

10 years ago, when we used to think of Artificial Intelligence (AI), it was a big computer with lots of lights and a black box of rules that tried to do the same kind of things that people do, just poorly. But today’s AI are driving cars, taking orders for our pizza, teaching English, composing music, and generally interacting with people and with society in ways that seem almost like science fiction. In this panel discussion, we will ask what it takes to be an AI interacting with people on a daily basis, what are some of the interesting (and perhaps ethical) issues arising out of this, and how this relates to Singapore’s vision of the Smart Nation.

Security Dynamics – Moving IoT and Beyond
By Dr. Woo Kang Wei, Executive Director, QuantumCIEL – Smart City Solutions

Moving IoT sits at the cross-road of two critical trends, viz. the IT/OT convergence and the cyber/physical security convergence. Drawing from different examples in wearable devices, (industrial) robots, bike-sharing/ride-sharing/asset-sharing apps, and drones/autonomous vehicles, this talk will highlight the new security challenges presented by IoT assets on the move (sometimes at high speeds) and the dynamic security context based on geolocation.

Towards Digital Manufacturing of Patient-Specific Medical Devices
By Dr. Matthew Chua, Associate Lecturer & Consultant, Medical & Cybernetics Systems

Digital manufacturing is an integrated approach to manufacturing that is centered around a computer system. Current limitations in bio-fabrication for medical needs includes long synthesis time, exceptional skilled labour and costs. We propose an intelligent digital manufacturing system that can perform patient-specific 3D modelling of implants, material selection and optimization. Lastly, a virtual reality (VR) manufacturing lab is proposed to evaluate the prototype manufacturing process and train new manufacturers.

Governance in the Age of Digital
By Mr. Nicholas Tan, Senior Lecturer & Consultant, IT Strategy & Management

Technology such as data analytics, mobility, social media and smart embedded devices are radically transforming businesses and government.  It is changing business-customer, business-business, government-citizen and people-people interactions.  It is changing business models, business processes, customer behaviours and government policies.  However, although technology presents new opportunities, it also creates new challenges.

To answer these challenges, a firm understanding and practice of enterprise digital governance mechanisms is needed.  The essence of enterprise digital governance enables the creation of a flexible system for maintaining accountability, roles and decision-making in the face of technological changes; and value from the effective and sustainable use of assets.  Practicing enterprise digital governance well disrupts gently, but practicing it unwisely will result in chaotic disruption.

Integrating Intelligence into Software Systems
By Mr. Heng Boon Kui, Lecturer & Consultant, Software Engineering & Design

With the recent proliferation and commodification of AI technologies like Machine Learning, it has become commonplace for software systems to incorporate components and algorithms that are responsible for the intelligence. Autonomous driving and purchase recommendation are two examples. While software developers may not be expected to design and build intelligent components, it is imperative for them to be equipped with the architectural and design skills to integrate intelligent elements into software systems.

This session introduces briefly the typical activities involved in engineering software systems. It then delves into the architectural and design activities, focusing on interfacing with intelligent components as well as the direct incorporation of algorithms. As with every well-engineered software system, emphasis given to good traits like extensibility and maintainability of the software system.

In this talk, we will also briefly share about the Master of Technology in Software Engineering programme.

Do You Want to Design A Great Mobile App?
By Mr. Chris Hampartsoumian, Technical Director, Asia Pacific, Accedo

Many of us are highly dependent on our smartphones and tablets for consuming media and accessing online service, such as for banking and shopping, at any time and from anywhere. The mobile application (app) software is downloaded to run on the smart device, but many ‘back end’ services are needed for it to work in a functional, secure, reliable and scalable way.  Many mobile apps need to ‘connect to the cloud’ to use services provided by cloud platforms.

This talk will explore how to design and develop a mobile app that consumes cloud services, including for application processing, data storage, authentication and authorisation. We will describe the steps needed to do test and deploy the app to users after meeting the platform’s compliance requirements.
