Description: Singapore kickstarted a national initiative on Future Schools in 2008. In this webinar, I will first share my project FutureSchool @ Hwa Chong Institution. I will then discuss pedagogical innovation, and learning space innovation. This will be followed by EduTech innovation with an emphasis placed on Virtual & Augmented Reality Technology-enhanced Learning (VARTeL) my team has been developing over the years. Efforts will be made on the case studies on VARTeL for STEAM education with my partners from schools in Singapore, Europe and Africa. The presentation will end up with an update from the 5th VARTeL Network Conference on Simulation and Serious Games for Education I recently organised online.
Speaker: Professor Yiyu Cai directs the Strategic Research Program of VR & Soft Computing. He is also deputy director of NTU's Center of Augmented & Virtual Reality. He is principal investigators with numerous projects supported by National Research Foundation, Ministry of Education, Temasek Trust Funded Singapore Millennium Foundation, etc. Dr. Cai has over 20 years’ experience doing R&D in Virtual & Augmented Reality, Simulation & Serious Games, Artificial Intelligence, and their education application. He has 8 international patents co-invented, and over 200 technical articles published. Among 7 books he published with Springer, 《VR,Simulation and Serious Games for Education》is one of the top used publications on SpringerLink that concerns one or more of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). He has organised more than 20 international conferences. He has also given near 60 keynote or invited speeches including UNESCO World MOOC Congress 2020. He sits in the journal editorial boards of Interactive Learning Environments, International Journal of Serious Games, The Visual Computers, etc. He was former president of International Simulation and Gaming Association which was founded in Europe 50 years ago.

Description: The advent of internet enabled small form factor computational devices have already revolutionized the way we fetch information, envision intelligent systems by inferencing real-time analytics from these IoT devices. The current trend is focused towards enabling IoT edge gateways as intermediary computational resources contrary to the cloud model that performs all the heavy lifting in the cloud. It is estimated that billions of IoT devices will be deployed by year 2020, however, very little to no information is present on ease of device provisioning. Similarly, the IoT Edge based vertical markets concepts has begun to surface, however, very little information is available that discusses the merits and demerits of this newly envisioned network architecture. This research aims to implement a Health-care domain scenario by provisioning and connecting real-time device data from simulated as well as emulated virtual IoT devices on industry leading IoT platforms. The results provide a deeper understanding of system performance by evaluating network latencies with increased payloads which further signifies the role and need for deploying Edge IoT gateways within the network. Device provisioning, service profiling and the ease of group resource management is also presented which helps to build larger scalable networks on these IoT platforms.
Speaker: MOHAMAD KHAIRI ISHAK received the B.Eng degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the International Islamic University Malaysia(IIUM), Malaysia, the MSc. in Embedded System, from the University of Essex, United Kingdom and PhD from the University of Bristol, United Kingdom. He is a member of IEEE and a registered graduate engineer with the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). Currently, he is a Senior Lecturer in Mechatronics Engineering at School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). His background includes outstanding teaching experience at the Universiti SainsMalaysia, instructing students to stimulate engineering information interest and retention while invigorating classes through the use of new technologies and models.
