"By participating in building a smart city through the use of high-performance computing and big data, Fujitsu's goal is to develop new skills and practical experience, create the next generation of solutions, and establish new business models for global or ASEAN companies moving into Singapore," said Masahiko Yamada, president, Technical Computing Solutions Unit, Fujitsu Limited.
Other partners in this CoE include institutions and government agencies from both Singapore and Japan such as the National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore's National Research Foundation (NRF) and Fujitsu Laboratories Limited, Fujitsu's research and development organisation. The partners will convene across a series of workshops, projected to start in April 2013, to identify the research themes to be jointly studied by the CoE. The CoE is expected to undertake projects by the end of this year through a team of engineers and researchers from Singapore and Japan.
