    • NGL CSET: Next Generation Localisation
  • Summary
    • Localisation is the industrial process of adapting digital content to culture, locale and linguistic environment at high quality, speed, volume and low cost, and is the key enabling, value-adding, multiplier component of the global software and content distribution industry. This collaborative, multidisciplinary research project will carry out the fundamental and applied research underpinning the design, development, implementation and evaluation of the new localisation technologies. It will address the issues of volume of data, information access, and personalisation. Dr Luz coordinates the Systems Framework research track and acts as principal investigator in the areas of Automatic Annotation and Labelling of Natural Language Texts and Interaction Design.

    • ECOMMET: Enhanced Computing Support for Multidisciplinary Medical Team Meetings
  • Summary
    • Multidisciplinary medical team meetings have become an established practice in many hospitals. Teams of experts routinely come together to discuss cases and patient management decisions. Such discussions generate a wealth of information that is not captured in traditional medical records. Although recent technological and organisational developments have made digital recording of entire meetings a distinct possibility, the usefulness of this kind of audiovisual database is dependent on how effectively its contents can be accessed. This project will investigate human and technological issues involved in building advanced computing support for collaboration, production and access of electronic medical records in those contexts.

    • Temporal and Contextual Data Visualisation for Collaborative Meeting Memories
  • Summary
    • The goal of this project is to develop and evaluate basic techniques to support visualisation and retrieval of information from records of collaborative multimodal interaction. The project aims to develop techniques to be used in a large variety of organisational memory devices to support computer-mediated human interaction. It will build on a theoretical framework for data visualisation and retrieval based on pattern discovery which encompasses elements of artificial intelligence and human computer interface research. Extensive empirical evaluation and incremental prototyping will be used to test techniques and assess the validity of our theoretical assumptions.
