  • Predicting potential problems of persistent plastic particulates
    19 Oct 2023 Engineering Product Development Material Science

    Engineering Product Development Professor Yang Hui Ying has observed that the current literature on long-term ageing treatments of microplastics is inadequate. Most research only looks at short-term ageing, which may not fully reflect the environmental behaviour of microplastics.

  • SUTD researchers train AI with reinforcement learning to defeat champion Street Fighter players
    03 Oct 2023 Science, Mathematics and Technology Artificial Intelligence

    The research team created a new complicated movement design software based on an approach that has proven effective in board games like Chess and Go. In a single testing, the movements from the new approach appeared to be superior to those of top human players.

  • Smooth avatar-user synchronization for the metaverse
    02 Oct 2023 Information Systems Technology and Design Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence

    What if, instead of incorporating technology into our physical world, we assimilate ourselves into a virtual environment? This is what Assistant Professor Xiong Zehui hopes to achieve in his research.
