PBrowse – A Collaborative Genome Browser

In this project, we are developing a collaborative genome browser that allows a team of scientists to browse and annotate a shared genome data set collaboratively via a web browser interface, including a facility for text-based interaction (chatting).

Peer Recommenders for MOOCs

Lack of social relationships has been shown to be an important contributing factor for attrition in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). This project aims at helping students to connect with other students to alleviate this phenomenon, by enhancing MOOCs with a peer-recommender system to encourage interactions, thus improving learning and reducing attrition. It explores various recommendation strategies and different ways to integrate the peer recommender system into the MOOC learning process.… more

Remote Environment Demonstrator

This demonstrator is championed by Rafael Calvo and builds upon the Stanford Ocean Acidification study by researchers at the Virtual Human Interaction Lab (VHIL) at Stanford University. Australia is the guardian of the Great Barrier Reef ecosystem. Human activity is causing CO2 levels to rise and this is causing acidification of our oceans. Most Australians do not have first-hand experience diving among the coral and sea animals that will eventually… more

Smart Glass

The Smart Glass system is an automatic activity recognition system for cognitive aid of dementia and stroke victims. Based on sensors embedded in glasses and machine learning techniques, the system will automatically detect activities and provide feedback to sufferers, caregivers and rehabilitation professionals. Tailored treatment will improve rehabilitation. Poster more

Social Robotics: Exploring Human Touch

Robots are starting to come out of factories and in order to interact with untrained members of the general public they will need to behave in ways that are intuitive and readily understood. In this project we investigate whether human touch on a robot can automatically be recognized. more

SYMARE

Sydney York Morphological and Acoustic Recordings of Ears Database The SYMARE database supports research exploring the relationship between the morphology of human outer ears and their acoustic filtering properties – a relationship that is viewed by many as holding the key to human spatial hearing and the future of 3D personal audio. more
