BioInformatics Research Centre (BIRC)
BIRC is the focus of the education, research and development, and human-resource training in bioinformatics at NTU.
The areas of research conducted in BIRC include Genomics, Protemics and Medical Informatics.
Research includes development of techniques and tools for computational analysis and visualisation of biomedical data and processes, leading to the understanding of biomedical phenomena and the discovery of novel therapeutic methods. BIRC also facilitates teaching and research projects of Master’s and PhD programmes.
Centre for Computational Intelligence (C2i)
Researchers in C2i investigate natural and artificial systems to comprehend principles that render intelligent behaviour possible in complex changing environments. The Centre’s core research is focused on devising intelligent machines capable of learning, understanding and reasoning about past actions, so as to provide creative solutions to real world complex problems. Specifically, C2i researches in the areas of
Cognitive and Neuro Systems and Decision Support Systems.
Centre for High Performance Embedded Systems (
CHiPES carries out use-inspired research using state-of-the art
tools and technologies to create intellectual property that
can spur sustainable growth in next-generation embedded
systems. It also relies on its state-of-the-art knowledge base
and research expertise to provide world-class training in
Embedded Systems Engineering for future engineers who can
contribute to product innovation and developer productivity.
Centre for Multimedia & Network Technology (CeMNet)
CeMNet is recognised for research work in three core areas, namely, Multimedia Understanding, Intelligent Environments as well as Network Technologies, Protocols and Services. The centre works towards ubiquitous computing where communications and media transcend devices, mobility and activities. Their works seek to enhance user experience which can be achieved through the deployment of network, effectors and location and context awareness technologies into our daily lives.
Cyber Security Lab
Researchers in the Cyber Security Lab study collaborative
security, security protocols, mobile security, collaborative
intrusion detection networks, web application security,
forensics and biometrics. Research is focused on integrating
new knowledge and technology to provide law enforcement
and security agencies with automatic devices and capabilities
to improve preventi
on, detection and solution of crimes, and acts of terrorism.
Data-Intensive Scalable Computing Lab (DISCO)
DISCO Research Lab was officially opened in September 2012 to explore fundamental problems in managing data and information that are of significance in the 21st century. It currently consists of 10 faculty members from the School of Computer Engineering in NTU. Specifically, research members of DISCO focus on the areas of data management, data analytics, information retrieval, and information privacy.
Emerging Research Lab (ER Lab)
The Emerging Research Lab (ER Lab) aims to nurture
new interdisciplinary research areas in human centered
computing, engineering, design and technologies that
show high research value as well as substantial commercial
seen the e.g Joint NTU-I2R Research Programme (ASTAR),
Temasek Lab Research Program, Medical Informatics, Herbal
Informatics (CRP), Game based Online learning (NRF/MOE
IDM programmes), Active Living for the Elderly (NRF/MDA
Joint NTU-UBC LILY Center).
Game Lab (
The gameLAB aims to develop technologies and techniques
for commercial and experimental digital art, animation and
games through research, innovation, education, training and
Our lab serves as a labyrinth for computer scientists and
engineers, artists and animators, storywriters and musicians,
and user-interface designers to create new algorithms, tools,
and systems to advance the state-of-the-art digital art and
animation productions, including interactive forms of
animation such as web based animation and games. As one of
its goals, the lab will engage key industrial players intensely
to accelerate the growth of the digital media industry in
IBM Research Collaboratory - Singapore
The IBM Research Collaboratory in Singapore was established in late 2010. Their mission is to further IBM's Smarter Cities research vision through the use of mathematical modelling and data-driven approaches for addressing Singapore's transportation/mobility, environment and energy challenges. In the 2011, the Collaboratory was very pleased to join the NTU community, under the hospitality of SCE. Currently, the centre is engaged in projects with Singapore's National Environment Agency and the Land Transport Authority of Singapore, and are seeking opportunities to collaborate with faculty and research institutes at NTU.
Multi-plAtform Game Innovation Centre (MAGIC)
Multi-plAtform Game Innovation Centre (MAGIC) is supported by the Interactive Digital Media Programme Office (IDMPO) hosted by the Media Development Authority of Singapore, and established in Nanyang Technological University on 1 Nov 2012. With MAGIC, the Singapore Game Sector will not only see more exciting high-quality games created and published but also cutting-edge game tools/services created from the industry-relevant R&D undertaken. MAGIC will be redefining game play for game development facilitation & solution innovation.
Parallel & Distributed Computing Centre (PDCC)
The mission of the Parallel and Distributed Computing
Centre (PDCC) is to form a centre of excellence in the areas of parallel and distributed computing. It has organised several leading international conferences in these areas. Particularly, it has gained an international reputation for its research on distributed simulation and collaborative technology. PDCC also strives to seek new industrial projects where parallel and distributed processing can provide a solution to real problems and foster research collaborations both nationally and internationally. PDCC has excellent computing equipment and network infrastructure including a CPU/ GPGPU cluster and several Linux clusters.
Rapid-Rich Object Search Lab (ROSE)
Rapid-Rich Object Search (ROSE) Lab is a collaboration among Nanyang Technological University, Peking University, and various industrial leaders. Their goal is to build the capability to be the largest collection of domain object databases in Asia for mobile image search in five years. ROSE's mobile search platform will be built upon cloud services. The lab's objectives are well aligned with Singapore’s long-term goal of becoming a global media capital by promoting the development of media ecosystem as well as media technology research.
Research Centre of Excellence in Active Living for the Elderly (LILY)
LILY aims to create a new cross-disciplinary paradigm, namely ageless computing, design and services to support active independent living for the elderly and turn the silver challenges into golden opportunities.
