Medical selfies and patient generated health data

Smartphones and wearable technologies provide exciting opportunities for patients and health professionals to transform healthcare.Patients can benefit from photos (“medical selfies”) taken on their smartphone to record a condition that they want to discuss with a health professional. Wearable devices allow patients to semi-automatically collect data about their physical activity, sleep, mood, diet, etc.This data can help patients to better understand a health concern, its underlying causes and the impact of treatments.Clinicians, on the other hand, can benefit from medical …

Robotic Process Automation

Recently, there has been a strong interest in industry in a specific area of automation Robotic Process Automation (RPA). This term includes:robotics - software agents acting as human beings in system interactionsprocess automation - either workflow management systems or systems that are process-aware.RPA is a relatively new technology comprising of software agents called `bots'. These bots mimic the manual path taken by humans through a range of computer applications when performing certain tasks in a business process. The tasks that …

Privacy-preserving process analytics

Modern organisations consider data to be their lifeblood. While the importance of data science and the potential benefits of data analytics are widely acknowledged, many people have grave concerns about irresponsible use of their data.Negative publicity surrounding large collections of personal data (including location, videos, pictures and emails) by corporations such as Google and Facebook and subsequent breaches have resulted in people losing trust in, and becoming more suspicious about, how their personal data is being used.Process mining is a …

Internet of Mobile Energy

The emergence of the two-way communication model and Distributed Energy Sources (DES) is transforming traditional power systems from largely centralised energy production to more decentralised and connected management systems. This is called the 'smart grid'.As the smart grid evolves, electric vehicles (EVs) are emerging as unconventional and highly-disruptive participants in the grid that can add significant benefit and flexibility. Notably, EV’s are equipped with a relatively high capacity battery that stores energy to power the vehicle.EV batteries, coupled with the …

Augmented sociality and enabling a participatory experience of augmented reality

We're seeking brilliant and highly motivated students to work on an Australian Research Council-funded project.Our goal is to transform augmented reality (AR) from a hyper-specialised tool for power users, into an enabler of creativity, socialisation, and new forms of community.We want everyday users to be able to augment reality as they wish and share such newly-created experiences with their friends, family, and community.

VR research analytics platform

The use of user data in games and immersive environment analytics is now pervasive. These software frameworks enable the sampling of embodied user data from the immersive VR environment, such as head movements, controller movements, audio data, and other data. In addition, toolkits are provided to analyse the extracted data. Such resources are also required for non-commercial Computer Human Interaction research.

MyFootCare - designing technology with people with diabetic foot ulcers

Every day in Australia:50,000 people are suffering with a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU)1,000 are in hospital because of a DFU12 will undergo an amputationfour people will die with a DFU.A key challenge to healing DFUs is effectively engaging people in their independent self-care away from the clinic. To date, self-care of people with DFU has been reported to be universally low. This project seeks to address the challenge of low adherence to self-care amongst patients with DFUs.The main innovation of …

Avatar customisation for diversity training in virtual reality

Avatar representation is found to be crucial for user engagement in various types of applications and user identifications with avatars. This project aims to design and develop an environment where users can customize their avatars by looking at a virtual mirror. In this project, where users will be trained in diversity awareness, it is crucial for them to feel like the character who is in the scenario. The outcome of the project will be used in experiments to test the …

Virtual reality and QUT Esports

Esports is the spectator-oriented form of competitive computer games and has recently emerged as a major sporting and cultural phenomenon. Millions of dollars are spent in sponsorship, drawing in large crowds as a marketable spectator sport. Universities around the world are developing esports as campus student activities and as representative sporting teams.QUT is home to the first university esports centre in Australia, including its own nationally competitive team, the QUT Tigers. The QUT esports arena is the training ground for …

Designing active play technologies with families

The aim of this project is to design and study digital technologies that enable and support active play in families with young children.To promote healthy growth and development, children aged 1-5 years should be physically active for at least three hours each day. This may include running, jumping and playful activities. With the current COVID-19 pandemic, many playgrounds, childcare facilities, and sports clubs are closed, which means that families look for alternatives to stay active.In this project you'll explore:how parents …

Discovering causal relationships between events in device logs

While advanced industrial control systems (ICS) attacks use multiple phases to launch their final attacks, existing security devices can only monitor local data without considering the consequence of attacks on other components. Identifying the causal relationship between events in device logs can provide comprehensive and system-wide visibility in industrial networks.Changes in a device log may trigger changes in other logs. Therefore, the analysis of causal relationships can be used for the prediction of causal interaction in networks. For example, it …
