The brains of all bilaterally symmetric animals on Earth are divided into left and right hemispheres. The anatomy and functionality of the hemispheres have a large degree of overlap, but they specialize to possess different attributes. This principle is poorly understood and has not been exploited in AI/ML. Previously, we mimicked biological differences between hemispheres, and achieved specialization and superior performance in a classification task that matched behavioral observations.

Patient Registry

Are you interested in applying your database knowledge to a real project? This project aims to develop a patient registry for hospitals around Australia. This is a collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine, Monash University. We will be building a central database or a data warehouse repository to store patient admission to the hospitals.

Smart TV has become the dominant TV type nowadays. More and more users are switching from traditional TVs to Smart TVs. Despite the growing momentum of the smart TV industry (particularly in terms of the number of TV devices accessible in the Android ecosystem), the number of currently available TV apps is significantly less than the number of existing smartphone apps. There is an easily overlooked gap between the smartphone developers and smart TV (hereafter, TV) apps, leaving the prospect of TV apps behind the smartphone.

Background: Insects are vital components of natural and agricultural ecosystems that interact with plants in complex ways. Monitoring can help us understand these interactions to improve crop production, and to assist us to sustain our natural ecosystems as we change the Earth's climate. This technology is vital to inform our strategies to protect global food supplies and manage our national parks and forests.

Freedom of Information is an important tool for investigating a public authority or organisation. Subject to certain conditions, it creates an obligation to provide recorded information, provided an organisation is a public authority.

I am interested in supervising projects that make use of Freedom of Information as a tool for investigating information management practices within public-sector organisations. For example, this might include information security, policies around information retention, or any other topic that can be investigated using Freedom of Information.

In situ analysis of complex biochemical metrices, such as microbial fermentation products, has drawn substantial research interests in recent years. Compared to the commonly used chemical analysis technique, spectroscopic analysis has great potential for this purpose due to its advantages of being rapid, contactless, lossless, and solvent-free. The major obstacle for the further application of the spectroscopic technique in the analysis of biochemical samples is the lack of customized data mining methods for the highly complicated spectral signal of the organic mixtures.

Using relevant available data-sets, we compare appliance usage across households of different demographics.  We then use machine learning techniques to infer how different households use different appliances at different times, resulting in diverse energy consumption behaviours.
