NRF Fellowship

Congratulations to Dr Fernando Basura, Scientist from Social & Cognitive Computing at A*STAR's Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC) in receiving the Singapore National Research Foundation (NRF) Fellowship Award, Class of 2022.

Dr Basura's project involves the development of Artificial Intelligent (AI) models to process videos and learn “why do humans do what they do?” by reducing the gap between neural and symbolic representation through novel neurosymbolic AI. These neurosymbolic AI models can see what we do and then reason about our behaviour to interpret, justify, explain, and understand our actions. The computational understanding of “why do we do what we do” would help us to develop assistive robotics, AI for monitoring, virtual assistant AI, and technologies for smart homes.

The NRF Fellowship support potential breakthrough projects led by young investigators of the highest calibre. Read more about NRF Fellowship.
