Laurence Liew is a veteran of the open source, Linux and high performance computing, grid and cloud community and has been promoting the use of Linux/HPC/grid/cloud since 1998.
Laurence currently heads up industry and engineering development under the Singapore National Research Foundation’s AI.SG initiative and is, also, an Adjunct Associate Professor at the National University of Singapore School of Continuing and Lifelong Education (NUS SCALE).
Prior to joining NUS, Laurence introduced Singapore to advanced analytics and machine learning through companies such as Numascale where he architected an in-memory analytics appliance, and Revolution Analytics Singapore where he introduced enterprise R analytics to organisations in Singapore and Asia. In particular, he conceptualized and built the Revolution’s Centre of Excellence for Analytics in Singapore in partnership with the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) in 2013. He also ran Revolution's development team responsible for putting Revolution R in the cloud. Revolution was subsequently acquired by Microsoft in 2015.
Laurence was involved in building the very first commercial Linux supercomputing cluster for an A*STAR research institute in 1999 and has since implemented and consulted for many organisations in Asia Pacific, Japan, Europe and US, on HPC, grid, cloud and now big data analytics.
Laurence is a member of the Singapore IT Masterplan 2025 committee and mentor to several startups in Singapore and a long time Editor of Transactions on Computational Sciences by Springer Journal.
