Yew-Soon Ong is currently President’s Chair Professor of Computer Science at the School of Computer Science and Engineering and Professor (Cross Appointment) of the School of Physical and Mathematical Science at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. He serves as Director of the Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Research Center (DSAIR@NTU) and co-Director of the Singtel-NTU Cognitive & Artificial Intelligence Joint Lab (SCALE@NTU).
The foci of Dr. Ong’s work is in the research and development of new concepts and theories in Memetic Computation that mimics biological evolution and cultural evolution (imitation & learning), otherwise known commonly as the new science of memetics which is the mind-universe analogue to genetics, stretching from anthropology, biology, cognition, psychology, sociology to socio-biology. The concepts and theories derived in the form of artificial and computational intelligence are then adapted into operational algorithms for solving real world problems in the field of arts, business & finance, digital media, education and science & engineering.
