Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) and Peking University (PKU) have collaborated in the establishment of the Rapid-Rich Object Search (ROSE) Lab over the past three years. The ROSE Lab addresses the growing need to expand search beyond text’s limited capability in describing real-world objects. 

Over 60 full-time researchers at the Lab conduct research into visual search technology to support scalable real-time applications. Drawing upon each university’s strength in pattern recognition, computer vision, and machine learning technologies, ROSE is creating an innovation platform for media applications, and developing visual object search tools with industry partners.

Nanyang Technological University’s (NTU Singapore) Research Centre of Excellence in Active Living for the Elderly (LILY) is a university level research center established in 2012. LILY’s vision is to conduct innovative research towards a technology-empowered ageless aging society. 

Over 65 researchers from a variety of disciplines are developing cutting-edge technologies that effectively address the physical, social, emotional, cognitive and sustainable socio-economic development issues related to world population aging. The goal is to enable the elderly to enjoy a healthy, happy, dignified and active independent life, while ensuring long-term sustainability.
