Limkokwing signs research MoU on new technology

Limkokwing University of Creative Technology has teamed up with Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) to undertake joint research into new technologies.

The two educational institutions recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) which also involves the other six Limkokwing universities worldwide.

They will collaborate to develop Augmented Reality (AR) technology that uses computer-generated data for real-world applications in industry, education, entertainment, military and emergency services.

Augmented Reality is described by Wikipedia as a live view in which the information layer lies atop the real-world scene, thus creating a mixed reality.

Currently, AR technology exists in real-time, like sports scores on the television screen during matches.

It is also interactive and digitally usable, as used in automobile GPS systems.

Unimas semantic technology and augmented reality director Dr Edmund Ng Giap Weng explained how this technology would benefit the education industry.

“Augmented reality aims to transform the physical paper book students normally use in classrooms into a book that can be viewed in a holographic way.”

Students are able to browse through pop ups, thus perusing information just as if they were reading the book.

“This technology will also support the film and television industry,” said Limkokwing University president Prof Emeritus Tan Sri Dr Lim Kok Wing.

With both universities having separate areas of expertise, Unimas will supply the technical know-how to create a market for multimedia products.

“Unimas is the only university in Malaysia which has great knowledge in the field of artificial intelligence. We currently have artificial intelligence departments in three different faculties,” said Unimas vice-chancellor Prof Dr Khairuddin Ab Hamid.

On the other hand, Limkokwing University will undertake consumer research, content creation and develop consumer applications, working towards getting final end products on shelves, he added.
