On 15 January 2010, three students from Temasek Polytechnic School of Informatics & IT, Nguyen Quy Hoang and Lam Chi Fong from the Diploma in Cyber & Digital Security, and Yang Lee Wei from the Diploma in Mobile & Wireless Computing clinched top places at the Poly-ODAI Competition that was held at Temasek Informatics & IT School. Nguyen Quy Hoang took home the Champion’s title, while Yang Lee Wei and Lam Chi Fong were the first runner-up and second runner-up respectively.
The aim of the software programming competition was to challenge students to create a program to analyze personal lifelogs (a record of a person’s activity or experience), and to leverage on their creativity in creating new businesses in Singapore. The theme of the competition was “Who’s Who in Personal Lifelogs”. Participants had to develop a program to identify the characteristics of 10 individuals from a set of computer generated lifelogs, and their submissions were evaluated on how many persons their program could identify as well as how unique the identification algorithm was.
This competition was jointly organized by Hitachi Asia Ltd and Temasek Polytechnic School of Informatics & IT.
