To mark the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Singapore and China, three universities from each country signed MOUs with each other yesterday, building on existing strong collaborations between the universities in student and faculty exchanges, and joint research and development. The collaborations will be funded through a donation of S$33 million from the family of Mr Ng Teng Fong, with each pair of universities receiving S$11 million. NTU and Peking University will establish a joint research institute whose research areas include multi-modal big data analytics technologies for smart cities and human-centred technologies for healthy living and lifelong learning. It will work closely with NTU’s Rapid-Rich Object Search (ROSE) Lab, which is also an NTU-PKU collaboration that aims to pioneer next-generation visual and object search technologies, and the Research Centre of Excellence in Active Living for the Elderly (LILY), which develops digital solutions for the elderly.
