The team bonded over countless hours of hard work, and pushed forward with a common goal in mind, i.e., to come up with an IT solution that would benefit St Luke’s Eldercare, and make their call for volunteers and donation operations more efficient. Through this competition, the team developed an invaluable trait–to be proactive and have initiative.

“Despite working tirelessly, we were able to have fun and enjoy ourselves during the process”, shared Ng Jin Wei as he commends his teammates for their tenacity.

Talking about the competition, team leader, Jason Gu Yaochen said, “This journey was not easy for us. We sacrificed a lot of our free time to develop this project. Through this journey, we’ve gained a lot, such as developing better design thinking skills, learning a new programming language and most importantly, and acquiring resilience.”

The winning team was composed of the final year students Jason Gu Yaochen (Module Prize winner, Network infrastructure, AY18), Tan Qian Ting (Module Prize winner, Internetworking Security, AY18), Eric Lim (Scholarship recipient), Ng Jin Wei (Director’s Roll of Honour), and Xiong Wenxi (RP Scholarship recipient).

Singapore Cyber Conquest 2019

Diploma in Information Technology Students win the Second Prize in the 2019 Hua Wei Developer Challenge - Atlas AI Track.

The duo presented the solution of creating a mediated learning environment system using Huawei Atlas DK 200. The students impressed the judges with their presentation and real-time demonstration of their prototype. The team’s solution included use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to analyse electroencephalogram (EEG) readings to manage and improve concentration levels of learners. The system also deployed Machine Learning to fine tune the algorithm for optimal management of concentration phases. Internet of Things (IoT) Technology was used to control lighting and other devices to create a conducive environment for studying.  Additionally, AI was used for facial recognition and facial expression classification which was then calibrated with data and text analytics of learners’ reflections and forum discussions to give feedback to learners and developers of their learning materials.

Health Innovation Technology (HIT) Challenge 2016

HIT Challenge 2016

A prototype healthcare solution co-developed by Assistant Director (Capability & Industry) Mr Seow Khee Wei and Senior Lecturer Mr Ng Tek Ming with Changi General Hospital nurses came in third in the Health Innovation Technology Challenge 2016.

The project was the only winning entry co-developed by a polytechnic in the competition, which was organised by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore, the National Healthcare Group and the Serious Games Association (Singapore). 

The prototype uses image processing and machine learning to identify and count medical instruments. 

The tool is envisioned to increase operating room staff efficiency, decrease the number of human errors and to ensure that nothing is left in the stomach after surgery. The team is currently exploring the possibility of testing and implementing their healthcare solution in actual operating rooms, with Eastern Health Alliance.
