DST yesterday held its Future Meet Ups session for an audience of 50 students from several higher institutions under the Institute Brunei Technical Education (IBTE), public members and DST personnel.
Held at its headquarters, the event featured an enlightening lecture delivered by Dr Hussein A Abbas, a full-time professor with the School of Engineering and Information Technology from the University of New South Wales in Australia.
Future Meet Ups is one of the platforms under DST’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme ‘Future Series,’ which is an initiative to create platforms to nurture promising Bruneian ICT individuals. This involves investing in them to generate business opportunities aimed at driving innovation and creativity in Brunei.
Future Meet Ups allowed participants to connect and network with others, brainstorm together and share ideas, as well as download information and learn from the session.
The highlight was a lecture by Professor Dr Hussein with regard to research findings on the topic of ‘Next Generation Intelligence Systems.’
The professor opened the floor concerning his most recent research regarding the importance and value of next generation intelligent systems and currently upgraded system design called Computational Red Teaming (CRT) used to tackle problems in highly-competitive environments.
He also explained the Observe-Project-Counteract (OPC) Agent Architecture used within CRT and shared examples from Air Traffic Control and competitive games to demonstrate the power of this architecture in tackling decisions in highly-competitive environments.
