Transforming media industries

The Transforming Media Industries research program in the Digital Media Research Centre investigates how the business practices and cultural dynamics of media industries are adapting to profound transformations in the production, distribution, consumption, and regulation of media content in local and global contexts. We examine the operations of power and the potential for innovation, focusing especially on the implications they pose for media makers, the media they make, and their social consequences across the film, television, games, music, news, and …

Understanding international governance in Antarctica through cooperative game theory

Antarctica is governed by a coalition of 29 countries ('consultative parties') who must agree unanimously before a law can be passed. This project will apply theories from social network analysis and cooperative game theory to map relationships between the different parties, and to predict their behaviour on a series of important environmental issues.

The insufficient informativeness of measurements in Bayesian detection problems

Shiryaev's Bayesian Quickest Change Detection (QCD) problem is to detect a change in the statistical problems of an observed process. This is an important signal processing problem with application in a diverse range of areas, including:automatic controlquality controlstatisticstarget detection.Recently a critical deficiency in Shiryaev's QCD problem has been identified to occur due to the insufficient informativeness of measurement in low signal-to-noise (SNR) to overcome geometric prior assumption on the change event.These deficiencies are due to the non-ergodic nature of the …

Feasibility of mapping individual electroencephalography to neuroanatomical sources across children and adolescents

Aims and MethodologyBackgroundSource reconstruction of electroencephalography (EEG) in adults has become a widely used technique to derive estimated electrophysiological signal representations occurring at specific anatomical locations. Yet there remains a dearth of source-based EEG techniques in paediatric populations which feasibly and accurately capture the same representations. The availability of a streamlined source based EEG framework would provide an essential platform for neuroscientists in the paediatric research space to analyse their EEG data with respect to neuroanatomy.AimTo assess the feasibility of …

Macromolecular barcoding for tracing plastic materials for the circular economy: a game changer for recycling

The reduction and management of plastic waste is perhaps the most critical challenge facing modern economies and plastic pollution cannot be resolved by generic approaches to research or to problem-solving. The Soft Matter Materials Team aims to resolve the anonymity and ubiquity of plastics by pioneering a simple optical readout system that can identify the uniquely coded information in macromolecules that have been embedded in plastics.In this project, optically readable macromolecular barcodes based on a system of excimer fluorescence switch-on …
