The outcomes from this joint initiative with the EMA, NTU and Durapower on FXMS will enable better decisions based on data and analytics, facilitating optimal battery health, performance, and longevity.”

NTU VP (Industry) Teacher Lam Khin Yong, said the joint effort among NTU and Durapower shows the way that new innovation in the green economy can be spearheaded through areas of strength for an industry organization upheld by the Singapore government.

“NTU has a strong track record in working closely with leading industry players, to develop innovations that can meet the key challenges in their sector. Combining our deep expertise in areas such as sustainability, battery technology and deep tech like IoT and AI, with Durapower’s industry knowledge and experience, we can propel innovation quicker and boost the competitiveness of our local SMEs globally in fast-rising industries such as EVs and energy storage systems.”

Computerized Twins, which are virtual imitations of offices or articles in reality, are an essential improvement in the Infocomm business, as it empowers more powerful and more secure dynamic through simulated intelligence proposals. It is likewise an examination region firmly upheld by the NTU 2025 Brilliant course of action, under its Development and Business venture drive sent off recently.

On account of huge battery stockpiling frameworks like those utilized for environmentally friendly power lattices or server farms, the computerized twin considers the immediate administration of batteries, for example, rerouting electrical burden to draw out the existence of more vulnerable batteries or to briefly stop the utilization of a battery pack until it very well may be supplanted.

As battery packs age, for example, those in EVs, they are ordinarily utilized for second-life applications like energy stockpiling lastly be reused into new lithium-particle batteries. The ERI@N is at present creating answers for all parts of battery stockpiling, from battery the executives frameworks to the assembling of batteries.

Pushing ahead, the NTU group will work intimately with Durapower to preliminary their answer on bigger server farms and to modify it for various applications and battery frameworks.

Truecaller Launches AI Call Scanner to Combat AI-Based Voice Scams



To assist customers in identifying AI scam calls, Truecaller is launching a new tool that runs on artificial intelligence (AI). The AI Call Scanner function, which can distinguish between a human and an AI voice on a call, is being rolled out by the caller ID platform. The organization brought attention to the growing number of AI voice scams, in which malevolent actors utilize AI to impersonate well-known voices in order to trick others. Interestingly, the US will be the first to receive this capability.

The Truecaller AI Call Scanner feature has been launched

According to the company, the recently unveiled Truecaller AI Call Scanner tool can analyze a caller’s voice in real-time and communicate the results in a matter of seconds. The AI Call Scanner function records a caller’s speech for a few seconds and then uses an internal AI model to determine whether the caller is utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) to swindle the user.

According to Truecaller, their AI model has been trained to recognize the distinctive qualities of human speech and set it apart from sounds produced by AI. It went on to say that even though the entire process only takes a few seconds, precision is maintained at a high level.

Users of Truecaller Premium who have the most recent version of the app (14.6) on Android will be able to use this functionality. The function is now being rolled out in the US, and the business has stated that it will be made available in India and other significant regions in the near future.

The business brought to light the fact that a number of malevolent actors attempt to extract money from victims by imitating human voices with AI. After social media videos are used to train the AI, the voice is utilized to call victims who are connected to the persons whose voices have been cloned.

When calling their victims, the con artists employ a voice that sounds familiar to them; this trick fools them into believing that it is one of their family. According to Truecaller, these frauds were first discovered in 2019 and have been much more prevalent in the years that have followed.

How to Utilize the AI Call Scanner on Truecaller

  • Make Truecaller your go-to phone app.
  • When you get a questionable call, tap on Start AI Detection.
  • The AI will record the voice and momentarily put the call on hold.
  • Await the notification that reads “Analyzing…” to know that the caller’s voice is being examined by the AI model.
  • If the voice seems artificial, check the on-screen notification.
