RMIT wins $1.8million in ARC linkage funding

RMIT wins $1.8million in ARC linkage funding | RMIT Computer Science & IT - tech news and ICT updates | Scoop.it

RMIT University has been awarded more than $1.8million in Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Project Grants.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Innovation and Vice-President, Professor Calum Drummond, said the grants build on the University's ongoing success in collaborative research partnerships.

“RMIT is renowned for the strength of our national and international industry relationships and our researchers excel at developing new knowledge and technologies for industry applications,” he said.

The Linkage Projects Grants Scheme funds collaborative research and development projects between higher education researchers and partner organisations.

A success story in this round involves Associate Professor Lawrence Cavedon, from the School of Computer Science and Information Technology, who was awarded $394,000 for User-Adaptive search and evaluation for complex information-seeking tasks.  

The project brings together a team of world-leading Information Retrieval researchers who have collaborated extensively in the area of evaluation and user analytics.

They will be working with industry partner SEEK LIMITED to develop a new evaluation framework with the potential to reinvent the user experience for complex search tasks.


RMITComputer Science&IT's insight:

Congratulations to Lawrence and his fellow researchers, Professor Mark Sanderson and Dr Falk Scholer, for this major ARC Linkage grant with SEEK. A great result!

Well done also to Dr Flora Salim, who is co-Chief Investigator on another large grant looking at big data capture in sustainable city design.

Professor Xun Yi and Professor Zahir Tari were also named on grants investigating electronic health data (EHD) with Victoria University and private cloud data centres (CDCs) with the University of Sydney respectively. Great work!

New app Touchpoint from RMIT student and Pongolabs simplifies info sharing to the touch of your finger - and no downloads!

New app Touchpoint from RMIT student and Pongolabs simplifies info sharing to the touch of your finger - and no downloads! | RMIT Computer Science & IT - tech news and ICT updates | Scoop.it
RMIT University and Melbourne software company Pongolabs have developed new mobile technology for instantly sharing information with hundreds of people in a group situation.

Touchpoint (tch.pt) can instantly share documents, videos or music with large groups of people at once with no app downloads, usernames or passwords required.

Pongolabs researchers and RMIT students worked together to develop and test the unique “moment-in-time’’ networking algorithm.

RMIT University postgraduate student Yifeng Chen, who spent six months working on the project, said Touchpoint involved a “host” confirming a channel number, which was generated by server, with all participants.

“All participants touch down and let it go at same time, this motion creates a special pattern that allows the server to run an algorithm to match all participants,” said Mr Chen, who is now employed as an engineer and researcher at Pongolabs.

RMITComputer Science&IT's insight:

Excellent work by Yifeng Chen, who is still finishing his studies yet has already secured a job with Pongolabs on the strength of his work on Touchpoint. Well done to Barti Murugesan too, who manages student projects for CSIT and who liaised closely with Pongolabs throughout the project.

A New Rule of Law: Social intelligence, open rights - RMIT University

A New Rule of Law: Social intelligence, open rights - RMIT University | RMIT Computer Science & IT - tech news and ICT updates | Scoop.it

Explore the legal and ethical challenges of regulating the contemporary societies that emerged when Big Data encountered Web 3.0, in the latest instalment of RMIT's Centre for Applied Social Research seminar series.

With developments in the Internet of Things and Smart Cities, our world will soon be managed and possibly ruled almost automatically. A panel of experts, including CSIT's Professor Timos Sellis, will be discussing how we regulate a world that is no longer simply local or global, but informational, framed on automatically generated data that mechanically produces more data in iterative cycles. What sort of order will emerge? And with social intelligence – the common cognitive base for humans and computers – fostering agency in Multi-Agent Systems, how will we define what is and is not human? How will law, governance and regulations work in this new hybrid world?

Find out more on Friday 29 May at RMIT Storey Hall.

RMITComputer Science&IT's insight:

Our own Professor Timos Sellis will be taking time out before SIGMOD 2015 begins on Sunday to join a panel of experts for the latest in RMIT's Centre for Applied Social Research seminar series. While exploring what happened when Big Data encountered Web 3.0, including developments in the Internet of Things and Smart Cities, the panel will be discussing the social, ethical and legal implications for the emerging societies.

Mobile technologies from RMIT win four prizes at Victorian iAwards

Mobile technologies from RMIT win four prizes at Victorian iAwards | RMIT Computer Science & IT - tech news and ICT updates | Scoop.it

Four mobile applications created by staff and students from RMIT won prizes at the 2015 Victorian iAwards.

Selected from a field of 80 nominees, the four winning entries from RMIT was the largest prize haul of any Victorian university or other organisation.

Celebrating new innovations in Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) for more than 20 years, the iAwards recognise new technologies with actual or potential impact on the wider community.

Selected across a range of iAward categories, RMIT’s prize-winning apps deal with business warehouse management, travel planning, and instantaneous information sharing, as well as a children’s game showing the value of reducing carbon footprints.

Vice-Chancellor and President, Martin Bean CBE, was guest speaker at the Cocktail Reception for the official awards announcement, at RMIT’s Storey Hall.

The University’s winning entries came from the School of Computer Science and IT and Head of School, Professor Athman Bouguettaya, said their success reflected the strength of its teaching and research culture.

“These awards show the level of expertise, as well as the creative, innovative capabilities, that our staff and students possess in a whole range of areas, such as mobile technologies and smartphones, artificial intelligence and machine learning, or programming and development,” he said.

“No other university or other organisation won as many awards as our school did alone – quite a remarkable achievement!”


RMITComputer Science&IT's insight:
With the National iAwards just around the corner in August, RMIT's four State winners - all from the School of Computer Science and IT - will be preparing to present their pitch to the judges over two days of intense assessment on Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th August 2015.  The judges will finalise the winners and merit recipients in each category, to be presented at the iAwards Presentation and Gala Dinner on Thursday 27th August at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. To attend register here - it could be an excellent networking opportunity. Anyway, in the meantime, Andy Song's iAward-winning SmartPicker warehouse app for SMEs has been selected by CIO as a highlight from the State iAwards, and is also featured in Computer World.  Good luck to all our School's iAward winners for the finals in August! Highlights from the 2015 state iAwards
