Biography

I am the Professor of Computer Science in the School of Statistics and Computer Science, Trinity College Dublin, University of Dublin, Ireland since 2005. He was Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Surrey, UK (1999-2005). I was the founding Head and Professor of Artificial Intelligence of the Department of Computing, University of Surrey, UK (1999-2005); Visiting Professor at the Copenhagen Business School (1998, 2013) and University of Surrey (2005-2008). I grew up in Pakistan where he obtained a first class honours degree in Physics and a Masters in Nuclear Physics with distinction from the University of Karachi: he obtained his PhD in Nuclear Structure Physics from the University of Surrey in 1975. My work seeks to emulate a key human trait of being able to use signals from different modalities (images, speech, texts) with other symbolic and numerical information where available, to learn, to make decisions, to plan, and to control complex systems. My research areas include artificial intelligence, neural networks, fuzzy logic, social media analytics and behavioural finance. Currently I am working on the automatic recognition of facial and voice emotion expression and we are (a) looking at the performance of well known emotion recognition systems; (b) developing a method for synthesising facial expressions with and vocal signals of emotions; and (c) to estimate the impact of these non-verbal emotions on the society at large. I have shown how to estimate the impact of sentiment expressed in texts, across a range of languages, on market movement and election outcomes. The human trait of using multi-modal systems was used by us in building systems that could be used to search for images given verbal cues and to find keywords for describing images. We have shown how such systems can be used in forensic science and diagnostic medicine. My other major projects include building a large-language models to investigate politico-historical questions like the emergence of states; cyber security of critical infrastructure; and, the impact of low-level wind shear at airports. I was trained as a nuclear physicist; in computing I have worked in areas such as forecasting, computer-assisted learning (Russian and German), engineering design, and information extraction from continuous information streams comprising texts, images and numbers. I have designed and implemented systems that learn to deal with the different modalities of communications and systems that learn language like children do. My collaborators have been diverse ranging from major EU and US universities, international banks and financial enterprises, National Gallery of Ireland, law enforcement and emergency management agencies, IT companies like Siemens AG, Cap Gemini, ATOS and others. He has published over 250 papers including 6 books; his most recent book is on the topic of Social Computing and the Law (Cambridge) and a five years before he published Affective Computing and Sentiment Analysis: Metaphor, Ontology and Terminology (Springer). He has supervised 45 PhD, 1 MPhil, and 21 MSc students successfully, and is currently supervising 2 PhD students and 6 MSc students. He is an elected Fellow of the British Computer Society and of Trinity College Dublin, and a Chartered Engineer of the UK Engineering Council.

    Governance, Risk and Compliance Competence Centre - GRC3 (2012-2013)
    Summary
    While regulators continue to drive the deployment of new regulations and standards in Governance, Risk and Compliance, industry spending on GRC continues to climb as the constant game of catch up drives complex and costly projects. The approach to regulations and their deployment timing varies greatly across different geographies/jurisdictions which further complicates life for financial services companies, software development organisations and Outsouring companies. GRC3 understands the dynamic nature of the forces influencing industry actions and will be flexible in all respects in order to ensure complete alignment with changes to the research agenda. In order to systematically and profitably conduct business within and across organisations, it is important that agents (people, machines, algorithms) are able to exchange data and that the data has meaning for all the agents involved in the exchange. There are sophisticated technological solutions for such a meaningful exchange for everyone involved. There are a number of systems that can help with the integration of business processes, and some are appearing in the financial industry. However, the standards are designed for different purposes and support different processes. Generation of a high-level ontology would provide means to enhance the interoperability between standards and support streamlined processes across the financial services sector.

    Reasoning in Risky Environments: Fuzzy Logic and Multi-criteria decision making
    Summary
    The treatment of risk generically is a complex and difficult issue. The aims of our project are (a) the identification of risk from numerical and textual evidence; and (b) the computation of the likelihood of a given risk event using aggregation operators, including Choquet Integrals. The project funding has been made available for Dr Andrea Zemankova to work under the supervision of Prof Khurshid Ahmad

    Faireacháin: A project for building a system for monitoring, evaluating and predicting behaviour of markets and of communities
    Summary
    The dynamics of financial markets rely critically on the sentiment of the stakeholders involved. Currently, the focus is on quantitative indicators of market dynamics - prices, volumes of shares or currency sold/bought. The objective of the Faireacháin project is to incorporate qualitative indicators of the dynamics - the sentiments articulated in news/blogs and in consumer confidence surveys - in decision making processes of the stakeholders. The proposed Faireacháin project brings together the methodology of Ahmad and Kearney (A&K) for studying volatility of markets caused by changing sentiments.. Since 1997, both researchers have published extensively in the fields of market volatility and sentiment and have received 4 EU/UK grants for their research in sentiment analysis. The A&K methodology will be used to empower Treocht Ltd.'s financial trading system for incorporating market sentiment in the reports and buy/sell signals generated by Treocht's system. The sentiment-enhanced system will generate revenue by using the click-ad model and by direct sales to individual and corporate clients. Market research shows a significant export potential for the Treocht's sentiment-enhanced trading system especially in the USA. The export-led revenue generation will help Treocht to employ up-to 20 high-tech professionals in Ireland. This is a collaborative project Prof K. Ahmad (School of Computer Science and Statistics) and Prof C. Kearney (School of Business). The spin-off company, Trecoht Ltd., has been awarded a High Potential Start-up status by Enterprise Ireland.

    Slándáil: Security System for language and image analysis
    Summary
    Project Slándáil will demonstrate a cost-effective and ethically-correct way in which social media information can be used by an emergency management system. The social media landscape consists of a range of digitized documents in a variety of formats, updated by a diverse and geographically distributed people and organisations. During an emergency, authorities use websites and the population, empowered by social media systems, can broadcast for help or to inform others of their well-being. The burden of search and interpretation in the social media space, however, is largely on the end-users that is the authorities and the citizens. Information obtained during emergencies may contain personal details and the details may or not be correct - there are no protocols for dealing with the ethical and factual provenance of such data. Social media users deploy different modalities of communications, including language, visual icons, and associated meta data. Human beings integrate the information in different modality seamlessly to infer meaning and to make decisions. There are no systems that (a) could aggregate the information in different modalities, and (b) deal with multi-lingual communications during an emergency. Project Slándáil is collaboration of emergency operatives, academics, ethics- and security-oriented NGO and four SMEs. Their common purpose is to make maximum ethical use of the information available in the social media to enhance the performance of emergency management systems. The Project will undertake research in text and image analysis, in ethical and factual provenance of data, together with SMe's specialising in selling systems for social media monitoring and for emergency monitoring. There are experts in human multi-lingual human communication working in the team. This is an Irish-led, Italian, German and British collaboration which will deliver next generation of emergency management systems. TCD is the co-ordinator of the Project
