Knowledge Management Research

Group (KMRG)


Knowledge

is

recognized

as

an

important

asset

in

organisations
.

Knowledge

is

the

basis

for,

and

the

driver

of,

our

post
-
industrial

economy
.

It

is

the

result

of

learning

which

provides

the

only

sustainable

competitive

advantage
.

In

today's

economy,

knowledge

is

people,

money,

leverage,

learning,

flexibility,

power,

and

competitive

advantage
.

Knowledge

is

more

relevant

to

sustain

business

than

capital,

labour

or

land
.

Despite

this,

knowledge

remains

the

most

neglected

asset

in

many

organisations,

unlike

other

tangible

and

physical

assets
.





Drawing

on

a

history

of

knowledge
-
based

systems

going

back

almost

two

decades,

the

importance

of

Knowledge

Management

(KM)

to

create

an

organisation's

competitive

advantage

has

been

widely

recognized

worldwide

in

the

government,

public

and

private

sectors
.





Our

KM

research

group

was

formed

in

2011

and

consists

of

academics,

research

associates

and

research

students

who

are

actively

involved

in

KM

research

and

related

areas
.

The

group

has

particular

interests

in

the

managerial

and

behavioural

aspects

of

KM

in

a

variety

of

organisational

contexts,

in

both

the

private

and

public

sector
.




The

research

group

focuses

on

investigating

and

identifying

existing

KM

management

and

delivery

processes

in

any

type

of

organisation
.

The

group’s

research

scope

includes

KM

strategy

and

design,

KM

transition

and

operation,

and

continuous

KM

improvement
.

Game Intelligence (GI) Group


The

GI

group

focuses

on

the

development

of

intelligent

systems

and

their

underlying

technologies

by

using

games

as

a

domain

of

research

and

investigation
.

At

the

discretion

of

the

coordinator,

the

group

includes



by

association

on

previous,

current

and

existing

projects



international

experts

in

artificial

intelligence

(AI),

psychology,

clinical

neurology

and

computer

gaming
.



Human

beings

are

usually

able

to

tackle

a

wide

variety

of

intelligent

tasks

such

as

evaluating

aesthetics

(beauty)

in

objects,

creating

such

objects

using

their

creativity,

and

devising

novel

strategies

and

tactics

for

use

in

computer

gaming

or

for

military

purposes
.

Existing

AI

technologies

may

not

always

be

suitable

or

even

applicable

to

these

areas

and

others

like

it
.

Our

goal

is

therefore

the

development

of

primarily

application
-
specific

computational

technologies

that

simulate

human

capabilities

in

such

areas
.

The

usual

advantages

are

increased

productivity/performance,

and

reduced

costs
.


The

GI

group

associates

have

obtained

many

external

research

grants

(both

as

individuals

and

as

a

group)

collectively

worth

millions

and

its

members

do

have

experience

collaborating

with

industry

players
.

We

also

have

an

extensive

list

of

top

tier

academic

publications

Mixed Reality and Computer Modelling

(
MiRComM
) Group

Computers

have

changed

the

way

we

live
.

The

diverse

application

of

computers

lives

can

be

attributed

to

the

ease

of

using

a

computer,

its

increasing

level

of

‘user

friendliness’,

the

decreasing

price

of

computers

and

the

ever

increasing

power

of

its

processing

ability
.

Advanced

computer

graphics

rendering

algorithms

which

harness

the

high

processing

power

of

Computer

Interaction,

photorealistic

rendering,

simulation

and

visualization,

computer

animation

and

gaming,

3
D

modeling

application,

and

Mixed

Reality

technology

with

the

intent

of

creating

interest

and

awareness

on

the

role

of

IT/CS

discipline

in

Embedded

Systems

Development

and

Programming
.

Embedded

System

is

an

area

that

overlaps

the

two

areas

of

Electronic

and

Computer

Science
.

Most

of

the

time,

computer

students

find

it

very

difficult

to

program

with

‘raw’

processors
.

By

having

an

active

research

group

of

embedded

researchers

in

the

College

of

Information

Technology,



it

is

hoped

that

would

spark

an

interest

in

the

students

as

well

to

see

the

area

of

embedded

systems

as

another

potential

area

in

computers

science
.

Embedded

system

is

a

rapidly

growing

industry

where

growth

opportunities

are

numerous
.

In

India,

the

subcontracting

of

embedded

software

development

to

Indian

companies

has

been

prevalent

for

the

last

decade
.

Embedded

systems

market,

which

is

one

of

the

key

drivers

of

Indian

R&D

off

shoring

and

is

currently

pegged

at

around

US
$

25

billion

globally,

growing

at

a

16
%

compound

annual

growth

rate
.

With

the

enormous

opportunities

in

embedded

software

development,

it

is

our

aspirations

that

Malaysia

would

one

day

be

a

serious

contender

in

the

field
.

Centre of Agent Technology

Research

in

intelligent

agents

has

progressed

over

more

than

a

decade

emerging

from

research

in

distributed

artificial

intelligence

and

distributed

computing
.

The

prime

motivation

for

developing

intelligent

agent

technology

stems

from

the

demand

for

agent

that

can

interoperate

by

exchanging

information

and

services

with

other

programs,

thereby

solving

problems

that

cannot

be

solved

in

isolation
.



Motivated

to

become

the

first

research

centre

in

the

area

of

Agent

Technology,

the

Centre

of

Agent

Technology

(CAT)

is

established

to

become

the

leader

in

the

development

of

a

new

agent

technology

based

on

intelligent

software

agents’

paradigm
.

This

includes

the

research

on

agent
-
based

systems

architecture

including

standards

for

agent

development

and

communication,

the

development

of

robust

and

agile

software

agent

framework

and

the

application

of

industry

standard

agent
-
based

software

systems
.



Headed

by

a

group

of

competent

and

dynamic

researchers,

coupled

by
