SMU and PS Solutions signed software licence agreement for High-Speed Geofence Query Engine

 

Singapore. – “Singapore Management University (SMU), one of Asia’s leading universities, through its School of Information Systems (SIS), and PS Solutions Corp (PSSOL), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Japan headquartered telecommunications and Internet company, SoftBank Group Corp., have entered into a software licence agreement. The license provides PSSOL world-wide exclusive rights to use an SMU developed software module which implements high-speed processing of geofence* queries, and the application of the software module to solutions that require sophisticated spatial data analysis in real time.
The algorithms to determine the location via a geofence are already well established technological abilities. However, processing many simultaneous geofence queries on large-volume incoming streams of data, at high speed, is technically very challenging, and therefore, it is difficult to achieve high efficiency in processing big data at lower cost for commercial use.
A team of researchers at SMU SIS, led by Associate Professors Kyriakos Mouratidis and Baihua Zheng, collaborated with PSSOL for research and validation, and successfully developed an algorithm to process many simultaneous geofence queries on large-volume incoming streams of data, at very high speed, and in a highly efficient manner. Through this agreement, SMU grants PSSOL the software license for commercial use of the said algorithm.”
