Research Expertise

Description

The overarching idea in my research is multidisciplinarity, specifically the transfer (and reinvention) of ideas and concepts between different disciplines, one of which is Computer Science. I have translated ideas from Computer Science into other disciplines and vice versa. To date, I have three bodies of work based on this approach: (a) The translation of ideas and models from Sociology (e.g., social network analysis metrics and Schelling's model) into Computer Science, specifically mobile and distributed computing. This work was done with PhD students Elizabeth Daly and Atul Singh. (b) The translation of ideas from Literature (e.g., Gothic narrative tropes) into Interactive and Locative Media with a view to improving audience immersion. This work was done in collaboration with PhD students Valentina Nisi and Natasa Paterson and with research assistants Tara Carrigy and Katsiaryna Naliuka. (c) The translation of ideas from Computer Science (e.g., process and procedurality) into Literature, Film and Art to form interactive digital narratives. Theoretical aspects of this work was done in collaboration with Hartmut Koenitz and others, and practical aspects in collaboration with Anne Holohan in Sociology through our Horizon 2020 project, "Gaming for Peace" where my team and I designed and developed a game to educate novice peacekeepers in soft skills, such as communication, cultural awareness and gender awareness. I fund my research through national (EI, IRC, NDRC) and European (H2020) grants and also through my TCD spin-out companies. My research output is in the traditional forms of PhD theses supervised and peer-reviewed papers, but also in the form of creative entrepreneurship, such as the award-winning TCD spin-out game development company Haunted Planet Studios, which I founded in 2010; and the Internet's premier true random number service RANDOM.ORG, which I created in 1998 and which receives over 4 million unique visits per month and as of January 2019 has received 403 scientific citations (Google Scholar).

Projects

  • Title
    • Viking Ghost Hunt (VGH)
  • Summary
    • A translational research project to develop a new type of location-based mobile game, initially based on the Dublin Vikings. The work uses augmented reality (visual and audio) to create a high degree of player immersion. The technology (now Viking-independent) is being brought to market by campus company Haunted Planet Studios Ltd.

    • Context-Aware Mobile Services (CAMS)
  • Summary
    • From October 2001 to December 2003, I was Trinity College's principal investigator on the CAMS project. A core idea in CAMS was that for a smart space to be truly smart, it must be able to react to the tasks which its occupants are pursuing rather than simply reacting directly to their actions. This involves integrating task- and space-level information into an application model taking inputs from a range of sensors. The CAMS Project explored these issues from two sides: the creation of novel smart artefacts to directly support particular tasks, and ways of relating the progress of tasks to the low-level cues obtained from these devices. CAMS was a joint project with NMRC and funded by Enterprise Ireland. Our work on CAMS (such as the smart couch and the smart sword) was widely covered by national and international media and has appeared for example on BBC World News.

  • Title
    • P2P Infrastructure Simulation Evaluation and Implementation Architecture (PISEIA)
  • Summary
    • The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) communications paradigm is emerging as the infrastructural basis for a new suite of Internet applications. Different applications deploy different topologies, i.e., ways of arranging the nodes to form a P2P network. I am Principal Investigator for the PISEIA project, which explores performance, security, privacy and other issues related to topology in P2P networks.

    • Software Infrastructure for Sensor-enabled Training and Entertainment Requisites (SISTER)
  • Summary
    • The SISTER project builds upon the ideas developed as part of the Context-Aware Mobile Services (CAMS) project. The specific aim of SISTER is to develop high-quality prototypes of specialised artefacts and dedicated middleware and applications in order to evaluate commercial potential within the two well-defined application domains: advanced sports/leisure training equipment and high-end toys.

    • Crossings: Electronic Journal of Art and Technology
  • Summary
    • Crossings is a peer-reviewed multidisciplinary academic journal published in electronic form on the Internet. The journal aims to explore the areas where technology and art intersect from a philosophical/academic angle. Currently, our editorial and advisory boards consist of mainly of academics from across Trinity College. I am co-founder of the journal and act as Editor-in-Chief. Five issues have been produced so far, featuring work by artists, technologists and academics from more than ten different countries.
