Are you interested in programming maps, such as GoogleMaps or Open Street Maps? This project uses online maps extensively for visualising routes, and other objects of interest.

Multimedia content such as audio, image, and video are stored and transported in compressed forms. Various standards are designed to encode the content at the highest possible level while minimizing distortion. Some commonly used compression standards include MP3 for audio, JPEG for still image, H.264/AVC for video. Despite the vast differences in signal characteristics, most compression standards have two things in common: transformed-quantized coefficients and scale factor (quantization table in JPEG and AVC). The coefficients are usually coded as a product of sign_bit and magnitude.

Podcasts have become a very popular way for small communities to create content that is meaningful for them and reach a wider audience. However, many of the skills and equipment needed to produce a good podcast are inaccessible to non-professionals and there is often a learning curve attached to gain necessary skills. In addition, the production process is seen as an individual effort (one or two producers working in isolation to produce the final edit).

Radio is one of the primary modes in which communities across the world receive important information and build connection with wider society. Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) have long been leveraging radio, and in particular Community Radio

 

In many parts of the world, audio is the preferred interface for social interactions. There has been a huge push towards audio-based interfaces for engaging marginalised communities in rural and Developing countries contexts.

As part of this project, you will work closely with a community organisation or NGO (this can either be an organisation that you have existing links with or we will connect you with one of our partner NGOs). Working in collaboration with the org, you will find out challenges they face in giving voice to their communities/beneficiaries that can be addressed through social media (for instance, perhaps they want to run an awareness raising campaign about the difficulties faced by the community and they want the communities to be very involved in this).

Traditionally many organisations prefer to work with text-based reports based on quantitative data collection.

These reports are used to share their insights and practices within their organisation, with other organisations, with donors and with community members.

In recent years, community generated qualitative data, in the form of audio or video content is more widely becoming a mode of data collection for organisations.

This project is within the scope of the project “Artificial Intelligence in carDiac arrEst” (AIDE), which was led by Ambulance Victoria (AV) in Australia, involving a team of researchers at Monash University. This AIDE project has developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) tool to recognise potential Out-of-Hospital-Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) during the Triple Zero (000) call by using transcripts produced by Microsoft Automatic Speech Recognition service.

This project aims to extend the existing knowledge on emotion regulation, looking to detect the impact of extrinsic regulation experiences in immersive environments on players and spectators. We will apply a multimodal sensing approach to detect emotional changes in the player using biometric data (electrodermal activity, heart rate, speech analysis, eye movement, pupil dilation), movement signals, and conscious emotional experiences.

This is a research-heavy project, looking for students with an interest in human behaviour and data analysis.
