[A research team led by Professor Hong Minghui and Associate Professor Qiu Cheng Wei from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NUS Faculty of Engineering has developed a novel supercritical lens, which enable optical microscopes to capture images in real-time and with greater detail beyond diffraction limit. In addition, this technique does not require any pre-treatment of samples or post-processing of the image.

Prof Hong said, "Our breakthrough is achieved in a totally non-invasive manner, coupled with the capability of real-time imaging. This could potentially open up a wide range of applications in areas such as high precision failure inspection in the semiconductor industry, and will also contribute significantly to biological research."]


[Singapore must keep abreast of global trends such as 3D printing and online connectivity of production chains, said Ms Low Yen Ling, Parliamentary Secretary for Trade and Industry and Education, at the event yesterday.

"Besides investing in advanced manufacturing capabilities... we also need to invest in upskilling our people," she said.

"This will enable our workforce to take advantage of the new and exciting job opportunities in advanced manufacturing."

For example, in remanufacturing for the aerospace industry - which reduces waste by allowing parts to be repaired and reused instead of being replaced - robotics software engineers are needed, said Associate Professor Tan Sze Wee, who is the executive director of the Science and Engineering Research Council at A*Star.

AmpTec Industrial Heating director Ken Teng said that he hopes four of his 14 workers can hone their skills in robotics programming.

His company has developed a robot which is able to perform precision cleaning by shooting streams of dry ice.

"I believe robotics is a future tool of all manufacturing," Mr Teng said.

"It can put our workers into higher-skill positions."]

IES EECETC & SUSS proudly present: "A Quick Introduction to Deep Learning"

Deep Learning is a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) stemming from the abstraction of the functioning of brain cells.

The concept of Deep learning is analogous to the way a child learns about new objects/ things, namely through observations and the tweaking of the parameters of neural networks. Presently, the vast and affordable availability of computing power together with the availability of large volumes of data have surfaced earlier dormant neural networks to limelight.

This gentle unveiling of deep learning will introduce to the audience fundamental concepts of neural networks and illustrate the principles of operation of a simple neural network using the Python programming language.

The presentation will introduce the convolutional neural network (CNN) and will illustrate the coding of CNN using the keras framework in Python Programming.

As this Talk is only a basic introduction to deep learning and is suited for anybody who has an interest in deep learning, experience with Python coding is not necessary but useful.

IES Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering Technical Committee (EECETC) and Singapore Polytechnic proudly present: "Building an IoT Project". [In Singapore, Internet-of-Things (IoT) technologies are set to play a key role in the city-state's digitalization push and Smart Nation plan. IoT refers to a network of Internet-connected physical objects, vehicles, buildings and other items embedded with sensors, electronics, and software. These objects are able to collect data without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. Examples of objects that can fall into the scope of IoT include connected security systems, thermostats, cars, electronic appliances, vending machines and more. Businesses and individuals can leverage IoT applications to automate tasks, such as notify authorities when a fire extinguisher in a building is blocked, or automatically adjust a room's AC.]

1.Included in this talk are pointers, which have come to my mind based on my years experience and involvement in contracts of construction projects in Singapore and Malaysia. It is not my intention to discuss everything and every issue that one may come across in contracting of construction projects. Pointers given confine only to those issues and things that some practitioners seem to have overlooked, ignored or have not given due regard and attention to. Many of these issues and things are so simple and obvious and yet appear not to have caught the attention of some practitioners of the construction industry. It is not denied that more pointers could have been included. I have not done so because, I take cognisance of the fact that ways to contract construction projects are very much influenced and controlled by human behaviours, how the human mind works, and business practices of contracting parties, all of these are again dependent very much on contracting parties cultural background, business policy as well as strategy, traditional modus operandi, and the era circumstances and environment the contract is performed. Furthermore, a human mind could work in such a way that it could be beyond the imagination of ordinary people. I am an ordinary person. Giving due regard to the aforesaid, there could be no end to the list of pointers. Hence, I have therefore decided that pointers I will be discussing should confine to those related to only common issues and matters. Some pointers given herein may appear to be repetitions. It is really not so because, the issues and matters involved are somewhat related but different.2.It should also be noted that many pointers given herein involve not just one member of the project team [PT] (comprising the contracting parties, project professional consultant and the contract administrator) but all of them.3.It should be noted further that all opinions stated in these notes are mine, and NOT those of the organiser of this course, or any of his affiliated organisations.

IES Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering Technical Committee (EECETC) and Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) proudly present: "Efficient Development for Robust Systems Using Virtual Prototypes and Multi-Level Processors Models".

Robustness and reliability of Integrated Circuits (ICs) is essential for many important applications of ICs such as automotive or industrial control. At the same time, pressures on time to market and cost keep increasing. System-level design methodologies are therefore increasingly being utilized. Virtual Prototypes are valuable for fast system simulation, also allowing for concurrent development of hardware (HW) and Firmware / Software (FW/SW). Fault injection is an essential technique to verify integrated systems.In this Talk, Professor Dr.-Ing. Ulf Schlichtmann will describe the basic concept of Virtual Prototypes. Professor Schlichtmann will discuss how multi-level processor models enable an efficient combination of accuracy and performance in fault injection. Fault injection can also be extended to FW/SW in addition to HW. Cross-layer techniques are valuable in evaluating the robustness of complex integrated systems.The research described in this talk has mostly been developed in the context of large-scale public funded research projects in Germany, related to both industry 4.0 and automotive industry.
