NTU, Rice establish infodynamics institute
Date:1/27/2010

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Rice University (Rice), a leading United States research university, today agreed to jointly establish the Institute of Sustainable and Applied Infodynamics in Singapore. Led by NTU, the multidisciplinary bi-national institute will create new science and engineer sustainable media devices, autonomous medical decision systems and other radical new information technologies that are more cost- and energy-efficient.

NTU Provost Professor Bertil Andersson and Rice Provost Professor Eugene H. Levy announced plans for the institute today at the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU).

"Information and communication technologies are increasingly seen as drivers for global economic recovery, but this will only happen if fundamental physical, economic and societal barriers are overcome," said Krishna Palem, Rice's Ken and Audrey Kennedy Professor of Computing, who will be leading the new institute. "The Institute of Sustainable and Applied Infodynamics will respond to this challenge with technologies that transform, transmit and communicate information in pioneering ways."

NTU President Dr Su Guaning said, "Emerging information-based industries are a key part of a knowledge-based economy. One crucial barrier these industries face are limitations in density and power consumption. Three years ago, we set up the Institute for Sustainable Nanoelectronics (ISNE), in collaboration with Rice University, to develop an entirely new generation of high speed IC chips with drastically reduced power consumption. The new centre will expand ISNE's original mission to tap bigger opportunities in information and its transformation. NTU is happy to work with one of the world's premier universities to position Singapore to lead the way in creating new knowledge and new commercial opportunities."

Rice President David Leebron said, "Working hand in hand with a leading engineering university like NTU complem
