IPAL in a few words
IPAL Scientific Objectives
IPAL is a French-Singaporean joint research laboratory, based in Singapore and formed in 1998. In 2007, IPAL became a UMI CNRS lab, the highest scientific ranking among CNRS labs overseas.
Today, IPAL partners (CNRS, I2R, NUS, UJF, IMT, and UPMC) are renewing their agreement for 4 years, from January 2015 to December 2018, with a focus on Inclusive Smart Cities and Digital Health, in line with the Smart Nation initiative launched in Singapore. Our research focuses on Digital health and Inclusive smart spaces to enhance the quality of life of ageing people, in close collaboration with Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.
While the main motivation and focus of our project lies in building an integrated knowledge exchange framework, the software infrastructure aims at solving the general problem of linking big data analytics with the internet of services in a smart city context. To provide useful services to urban stakeholders, it is crucial to enhance the data gathered from various sources, and derive value and insightful knowledge from it.
