Nurdianah Md Nur | Nov. 7, 2013
The new centres have a dual role: to research new technologies, and carry out early test bedding of these research outcomes with NTU’s industry partners.

To achieve its task, MAGIC will work with industry partners including NVIDIA, HP, GARENA and Nanyang Polytechnic's Games Solution Centre, and research collaborators like Singapore University of Technology and Design.

ROSE: Developing next-generation visual and object search technologies
In response to the growing trend of visual and object searches on the Internet and mobile devices, the Rapid-Rich Object Search (ROSE) Lab at NTU will develop innovative search technologies by leveraging on cloud services. ROSE will do so by working closely with the Peking University in China, as well as industry players including China's Internet service provider Tencent, and sever and cloud solution provider Inspur Group.

According to NTU, ROSE aims to have one of the largest structured object database of around 50 million domain objects in Asia for mobile image search in the next five years.

All three new centres will add to the university's existing cluster of three IDM International Research Centres — the BeingThere Centre, the Centre of Social Media Innovations for Communities (COSMIC) and the Fraunhofer IDM Centre@NTU.
