Kin-Choong Yow’s research interest is in Artificial General Intelligence and Smart Environments. Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is a higher form of Machine Intelligence (or Artificial Intelligence) where the intelligent agent (or machine) is able to successfully perform any intellectual task that a human being can. Kin-Choong Yow has published over 100 top quality international journal and conference papers, and he has served as reviewer for a number of premier journals and conferences, including the IEEE Wireless Communications and the IEEE Transactions on Education. He has been invited to give presentations at various scientific meetings and workshops, such as ACIRS, in 2018 and 2019; ICSPIC, in 2018; and ICATME, in 2021. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Advances in Information Technology (JAIT), a Managing Editor of the International Journal of Information Technology (IntJIT), and a Guest Editor of MDPI Applied Sciences. He is also a member of APEGS and ACM, and a senior member with the IEEE.
His pioneering work in Mobile and Interactive Learning won the HP Philanthropy grant in 2003 for applying Mobile Technologies in a Learning Environment. Only 7 awards were given to the 21 Asia Pacific Countries who were invited, and his project was the only one from Singapore to win it. Also, in 2003, he was one of the only 2 Singaporeans to be awarded participation to the ASEAN Technology Program on Multi Robot Cooperation Development held in KAIST, Korea.
He was the winner of the NTU Excellence in Teaching Award 2005, and he won the Most Popular SCE Year 1 lecturer for 4 consecutive years 2004-2007.
