This paper reports three on-going research projects in Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the National University of Singapore. These three projects are (a) designing an expert system for computer performance monitoring, (b) machine translation projects involving three common languages in Singapore and (c) neural network systems providing an alternative to conventional computing to solve AI problems.
