Featured research projects
This study centres on how computer-based decision procedures, under the broad umbrella of artificial intelligence (AI), can assist in improving health and health care. The goal of this project is to develop computational models using text and images (and possibly other data modalities) to help medical experts to improve the quality of patient care.
The proposed project aims to develop new methodologies for developing NMT systems between extremely low-resource languages and English. Recent advances in neural machine translation (NMT) are a significant step forward in machine translation capabilities. However, "NMT systems have a steeper learning curve with respect to the amount of training data, resulting in worse quality in low-resource settings". This project investigates methods to enable high performing NMT in low-resource scenarios.
The purpose of this research proposal is to develop a system to assist forensic pathologists to identify ballistic fragments and their trajectories. Information about the bullets direction, trajectory and composition can provide important information about the type of ammunition, the range and direction of gunfire, and the type of weapon used. In addition it can assist with the identification of type of gunshot injury and the manner of death. Namely, whether the death was accidental, homicidal or suicidal.
This project aims to design effective and intelligent search techniques for large scale social network data. The project expects to advance existing social network search systems in three unique aspects: utilizing the geographical locations of queries and social network data to provide more relevant results; acknowledging and handling inherent uncertainties in the data; and exploiting knowledge graphs to produce intelligent search results.
In this project, we are interested in developing efficient query processing techniques for indoor location data considering textual keywords associated with objects, and data uncertainty.
This PhD project will explore novel methods for Nomadic Augmented Reality, a class of systems, applications and interaction techniques designed to support field workers with visual information on the go.
We are interested in Building Automation Systems security that utilize next-generation IOT approaches from the perspective of data security (privacy, secure access and storage, secure transmission and utilization) and control security (authorized access to and control of BAS-based features).
Assessing network vulnerabilities through partial pattern analysis - extending the self-securing software system
This project will investigate techniques to (i) detect particular vulnerabilities; (ii) mitigate them at run-time using appropriate techniques; and (iii) evaluate the efficacy of the detection and counter-measures on exemplar real-world applications.
We want to investigate how distributed ledger/blockchain technologies can assist in providing improved support for BPM contract agreement, BPM model development, and to support collaborative, inter-organisational BPM evolution.
The PhD student will work on the development of highly efficient techniques for automated vulnerability detection in large software projects.
The project will investigate the mechanisms of self-organised task allocation in insect colonies.
This project will investigate new approaches to modelling, designing and generating mobile eHealth apps for phones and wearables.
This project will explore different deep learning techniques for Android app analyses, e.g., to detect Android malware, to identify common vulnerabilities, or to pinpoint repackaged Android apps.
This PhD project will investigate the creative use of digital and networking technologies that go beyond automating and augmenting aging and antiquated systems.
Four projects: Virtual Heritage Project, Innovative Use of Contemporary Games Technologies, Ars Incognita – Interfacing Creative Research with Digital Cultural, Creating Digital Cultural and Heritage Experiences in the Public Realm
The dominant paradigm for interacting with computers now involves new media and multimodal input on cell phones, which involves speech, multi-touch, writing, gestures, images, gaze, and sensors.
