Get to know Malaysia; Top 5 Malaysian Inventions of all time

Sharing is caring :)

It’s Merdeka month; August! This month is the month we appreciate our country a little bit more than we usually do. So how about we learn more about Malaysia in this entry?

Malaysians are known for their inventions that has become a basic necessity in our lives worldwide. A lot of people probably have no idea of anything that Malaysian have invented throughout the years that has contributed to our country’s image. You’re about to be in awe!

Top 5 Malaysian Inventions

1. Flash Drive

It all started one day in June 2001, Datuk Phua Khien Seng decided to make a research on flash memory technology during his third year of studying electrical and control engineering a year after his company was established (known as Phison Electronics Corp 2000); we probably will not be able to have a flash drive today if it wasn’t because of that. Imagine that.

Flash drive is defined as a data storage device that utilizes flash memory with an integrated USB interface — known for being removable, rewritable and it’s pocket-sized! It’s definitely much lighter and smaller compared to an optical disk or a floppy disk.

Until today, the flash drive has shipped over 600 million every year all around the globe! Not only that, it has reached USD 1.3 billion sales revenue; who would’ve thought?

2. Lytro Camera

Lytro camera is a ‘light field camera’ that enables you to pick the focus point in photos. 

Ren Ng has always been around cameras; he studied optic and had worked with electrical and mechanical engineering professors in creating cameras. He figured out the way to apply light field technology to cameras in compact-sized packages — and he continued researching even after his PhD, to produce light field cameras that people can take pictures with and it has now become the basic application in developing innovative digital cameras for future generations. Anyone here want to follow in his footsteps?

Nehemiah walls that are nearly everywhere in Malaysia, the ones you see when you’re driving; they’re used everywhere for a good reason. 

A Malaysian Engineer, Ir. Dr. Nehemiah Lee Chee Hai is the one behind the brilliant invention of Nehemiah Walls. Back in the 80’s, he worked at the Reinforced Earth Company. It was during his Master’s degree, he decided to research the design and the concepts– and he came up with a system to create retaining walls.

Nehemiah walls is a type of reinforced soil system that incorporates steel bars and precast concrete blocks. It saves costs, time and is more durable if you compare it to other types of walls. You can’t tell me that’s not efficiency at its best.

The Nehemiah Walls is now used worldwide in other countries — Singapore, Australia and Hong Kong. Impressive, right?

All the way from Penang, Ooi Seng Chye had come to Kuala Lumpur and worked at Wong Engineering Bhd; a Kuala Lumpur stock exchange company, as a purchasing manager.

Eager to try new things, he created a water dispenser and successfully obtained Cradle funding worth RM150,000 that made him the owner of about 500 RO water dispensing units around Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya under the brand Good Drink. I mean — how did he do that?

“Design adds value faster than it adds costs.” – Joel Spolsky

It’s difficult to imagine our lives and surroundings without the existence of Multimedia Design

Throughout our everyday lives, we encounter design everywhere; the advertisement on the billboard that caught your eyes when you’re driving on the highway,  the video you came across on social media that is easy on the eyes, even your phone and your computer interface — all of them, they involve design.

So how exactly are the ideas produced and who is in charge of designing them? Here’s a quick walkthrough on Multimedia Design.

What is Multimedia?

Multimedia is the field that revolves around computer generated integration of text, graphics, drawing, still and moving images, animation, audio and other media where information can be delivered, stored and processed digitally.

Basic Elements of Multimedia

  1. Text – Characters that are used to create words, sentences, and paragraphs. 
  2. Graphic – A digital representation of non-textual information, such as a drawing, chart, or photograph.
  3. Animation – Flipping through a series of still images. It is a series of graphics that create an illusion of motion.
  4. Video – Photographic images that are played back at speeds of 15 to 30 frames a second and provide the appearance of full motion. 
  5. Audio – Music, speech, or any other sound.

What are the Career Prospects of Multimedia Design?

Common Careers:

  1. Web Designer/Developer
  2. Animator
  3. Graphic Designer
  4. Game Designer

Top 5 Private Universities to study Data Science in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)
data science article

Oh to live in a generation where technology and humans meet; is indeed the revolution humans need.

“The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don’t really even notice it, so it’s part of everyday life.” – Bill Gates

What is Data Science?

Data science is the combination of tools, algorithms and machine learning components. It plays the role of extracting clean information from raw data for the planning of actionable insights.

Data Science continues to bring an immense number of benefits in business, research, even our daily lives. The things you search for in Google search bar, the posts you like on your Instagram, including your health data from a fitness tracker app you downloaded in your phone, all of them are important to data scientists depending on their project. The data scientists will look through millions of data and find the hidden pattern or connection in order to come up with breakthrough insights that will contribute to our convenience, especially in business. From there, analysts and business people will be generating the insights to create a tangible business value.

Data science mainly has a five-stage life cycle that consists of:

  1. Capture: Data acquisition, data entry, signal reception, data extraction
  2. Maintain: Data warehousing, data cleansing, data staging, data processing, data architecture
  3. Process: Data mining, clustering/classification, data modeling, data summarization
  4. Communicate: Data reporting, data visualization, business intelligence, decision making
  5. Analyze: Exploratory/confirmatory, predictive analysis, regression, text mining, qualitative analysis

The program costs listed are provided as a general guide only. They have been sourced from publicly available information or individual universities and business schools. In relying on the list below potential students should be aware:​

  • he program costs were sourced in July 2017 for students commencing in 2017 but may change in the future at each school’s discretion; and
  • Where schools have not provided full program fees MBA News has made a judgement on the full program costs based on information available. For instance, many schools provide on an indicative annual fee for a program which takes 1.5 years to complete. In these cases we have used current year indicative fees extrapolated over 1.5 years (ie $30,000pa x 1.5 years = $45,000); and
  • Current fees for units (variably called courses, subjects, credit points etc) may increase in the future before the completion of your program, increasing the overall cost of your program; and
  • The program costs listed may or may not include incidentals like textbooks and other learning materials. In the case of study tours, these additional program costs can be substantial.
  • program costs for local students may be different; and
  • While all care has been taken to ensure their accuracy please consult your school on your full fee liability before commencing your MBA.
