ADDRESSING SOCIETAL CHALLENGES THROUGH COMPUTING RESEARCH & EDUCATION
As a computing school within a Management University, our research is uniquely defined by the twin emphasis of Academic Scholarship in Computing Technology and Practice Scholarship in Solution Development. Academic scholarships in 3 selected areas, mainly Artificial Intelligence and Data Science, Human-Machine Collaborative Systems, and Information Systems and Technology.
At the same time, we need to go beyond technology creation in order to achieve practical impact. We emphasise solution development which entails integrating different technologies, integrating with business models and processes, addressing usability, deployment and product management concerns, aligning with local ethical norms as well as legal and regulatory frameworks and ultimately, fulfilling user and organisational needs.
That is what we mean by Practice Scholarship. The application areas that we direct our Practice Scholarship to are: Education Pedagogy, Urban Systems and Operations, Active Citizenry and Communities, and Safety and Security. The following elaborates on our research areas and highlights some of our achievements.
