Professor Norman Yeow Khean
VI class of 1961

This talk is a sincere contribution by Norman for VI and its ideals. He agreed to the talk promptly, and on short notice, upon being asked by a VIOBA committee member.


As Emeritus Professor and Honorary Scientist to National ICT Australia, Professor Norman’s current research in artificial intelligence encompasses:

  • Nonmonotonic Reasoning
  • Logics of Action
  • Logic Programming
  • Simulation and Modelling
  • Systems Theory
  • Emergence
  • Ontologies
  • Social Agents, Trust

He has published in these areas since the late 1960s, with about 60 papers published in the last 10 years alone.

Recently, on 14 July 2010, Norman gave a talk at University Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) titled "The Tragedy of the Commons" that examined ways of modelling behaviours using a number of formalisms ranging from game theory to behavioural economics. It then looked at measures than can be taken to alleviate such behaviours.

Personal background:

Although Professor Norman is now an Australian national, he was born in Ipoh, Malaysia and completed his high school at Victoria Institution, Kuala Lumpur. He obtained his Bachelor and Masters in Electrical Engineering, from the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1965 and 1966.

He then worked for Telecom Malaysia for four years as a communications engineer before resuming graduate study at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbour, USA, from which he obtained a PhD in Computer and Communication Sciences in 1974.

He then taught at SUNY Binghamton before joining the University of Sydney, at which he eventually held a personal Chair as Professor of Knowledge Systems. He moved to the School of Computer Science and Engineering of the University of New South Wales in August 1996 to assume its third Professorship.

He was seconded to set up the Knowledge Representation and Reasoning Program of the National ICT Australia (NICTA) research institute in 2003, the leadership of which he passed to his colleague Prof Toby Walsh in April 2005. He retired in July 2006, but continues his research in UNSW and NICTA as an Emeritus Professor. He has been Visiting Professor at IBM Systems Reseach in New York, the Universities of Birmingham and Bath in England, and the University of Patras in Greece.

Professor Norman has two sons, Kerwyn, a medical graduate who is an oncologist at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney and Lyndon, an IT graduate who is with Google in Singapore. He is married to Yoke Lin Tan, an economist who worked for the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners prior to retirement.
