SINGAPORE: The Nanyang Technological University (NTU) on Friday (Apr 28) said it will invest S$8 million over the next three years in a new research centre for big data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI).

The research centre, named Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Research Centre (DSAIR), will have 60 scientists and researchers and will be jointly headed by Professor Chee Yeow Meng, chair of NTU's School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, and Professor Ong Yew Soon, chair of its School of Computer Science and Engineering, the press release said.

In fact, Prof Ong is leading a team that has developed a prototype software that allows individuals to develop "sophisticated and visually appealing" games without knowledge of computer programming.

The software, called IntelliK, has a simple drag-and-drop user interface and an automatic coding module that will work in the background to enable AI features. Using these, novice users can create games with avatars that have personalised sets of unique behaviours without doing any complex coding.
