The Fourth Industrial Revolution is changing how we live, work, and communicate - with technologies that blur the lines between physical, digital and biological spheres.
Our Tech Talk series explores some of these emerging technologies. Join us to discover how they impact or disrupt our lives, and stay abreast with the breakthroughs and developments of today.
This session will adopt a hybrid format with an in-person audience of up to 45 persons and a concurrent live stream via Zoom.
Self-driving vehicles are emerging in countries like the US and China, providing services such as transportation and product/food delivery for the consumer market. While the current technologies have given us a good start, there is still much room for improvement to extend the capabilities of current self-driving systems. This talk aims to discuss the basic technologies behind self-driving vehicles, their potential applications, and the future of self-driving vehicles involving state-of-the-art technologies like 5G.
Speaker: Dr Nicholas Ho (Engineering ’13)
Lecturer and Consultant, Artificial Intelligence Practice
NUS Institute of Systems Science (ISS)
Dr Nicholas Ho received his B.Eng and PhD degrees from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, NUS. Experienced in the mechanical engineering field, he specialises in state-of-the-art Industrial 4.0 technologies such as Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs), Internet-of-Things (IoT), Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Prior to joining ISS, he spent a number of years in research, whereby he assisted in the development of cutting edge CPS and IoT technologies, a novel VR training system, and groundbreaking optimisation models for biofabrication applications.
