Contributions and risks of smart urban technology-driven approaches to sustainable development

The prospects of smart urban technologies range from expanding infrastructure capacity to generating new services, from reducing emissions to engaging the public, from minimising human errors to improved decision-making, and from supporting sustainable development to improving performances of commercial enterprises and cities. The most popular technologies in the context of cities include, but are not limited to:internet-of-things (IoT)autonomous vehicles (AV)Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS)bigdata5G/6Groboticsblockchaincloud computing3D printingaugmented and virtual reality (AR/VR)digital twinsartificial intelligence (AI).These disruptive technologies are critical in transforming our cities into smarter …

AI-Based Data Analysis on Multiple Imaging Modalities

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is estimated CVD takes 17.9 million lives every year. In Australian, the statistical data from the Australia Heart Foundation shows CVD is a major cause of death in Australia. It occupies 26% of all deaths, responsible for an average 118 deaths every day. Four of the main types of CVD are coronary heart disease, strokes and transient ischaemic attack, peripheral …

Advanced artificial intelligence based ultrasound imaging applications

Our research in the space of advanced quantitative medical imaging is investigating how to use ultrasound as a real time volumetric mapping tool of human tissues, to guide in a reliable and accurate way complex medical procedures1. We have developed several novel methods which make use of the most cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology2. For example, to show where the treatment target and the organs at risk are at all times during treatments in radiation therapy3, 4; or to inform robots …

I want to move it, move it: framing and enabling children's active play using novel technology

We're interested in exploring how tangible, embodied and embedded interactions (TEIs) can be used to facilitate active play in young children (age 3-5 years old). In this project you’ll explore how existing technologies are used to provide children with opportunities for active play, be involved in the design and development of new TEIs, and evaluate how these TEIs might facilitate sustained engagement with active play.This student project is part of a larger research project at QUT, which means you will …

Comparison of output from collocated solar systems of different technology

Solar panel efficiency is calculated using standardised testing conditions, allowing like-for-like comparison of systems under the same conditions. However, data collected over a three year period from two collocated solar systems of different technologies are showing unexpected results. The most efficient system's yearly output is comparatively lower. Initial data analysis explains some differences from the operational conditions, but further investigation is required.

SleepBeta: co-designing technology with young adults to promote healthy sleep

The aim of the SleepBeta project is collaborate with young adults to promote healthy sleep. Sleep, together with healthy diet and exercise, is a key pillar for a healthy lifestyle. It is important to feeling well and to performing well at school and in university. However, young adults often have unhealthy sleep habits due to stress caused by exams, leisure activities and work commitments, and digital technologies used at night-time. Over the last few years, we explored different sleep and …

Foundations: speculative imaginings of law and technology

This project is located within the 'Jurisprudence of the Future' project which is an international collective exploring the intersections and connections between science fiction and law. At this stage of the project the overarching focus will be on a volume with Routledge edited by Mitch Travis and Kieran Tranter.You will work directly with myself and coauthors on an original chapter for that volume that connects and works through an aspect of the speculative imaginings of law and technology. The precise …

Culture and corruption risks in local government: the role of technology in detecting fraud

A recent investigation by the Crime and Misconduct Commission found serious fraud and corruption across a number of Queensland city councils. This included inappropriate relationships between the Council and the private sector, in particular property developers and improper use of power and influence for personal benefit by elected councilors.This project investigates how council employees and councillors avoid detection under existing accounting controls, and how they can be strengthened. We will focus on the latest technologies for detecting financial misconduct and …

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 …

Exploding shallow marine volcanoes: investigating the petrology of the 2019 pumice raft-producing eruption from Volcano 0403-091, Tonga

More than 21,000 km of submarine volcanoes front subduction zones, many of which lie in shallow water close to inhabited areas. Eruptions at these volcanoes can be explosive and may have significant impacts on nearby communities, or generate pumice rafts that prolong impact at remote locations. For the first time, samples of a shallow marine explosive eruption have been collected from the buoyant pumice raft and from the seafloor at the vent of Volcano 0403-091, Tonga.

Develop point-of-care microfluidic technologies for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases

Excessive clotting (thrombosis) leads to the cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke, killing one Australian every 12 minutes. It has long been recognized that platelets play a central role in thrombosis and are unique in their ability to form stable adhesive interactions under conditions of rapid blood flow.We've recently discovered a new ‘biomechanical’ prothrombotic mechanism that highlights the remarkable platelet sensitivity to the shear stress gradients of blood flow disturbance. Importantly, we've found that current anti-thrombotic drugs, such …

Value-based design of artificial intelligence technologies (AI) for service delivery

Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are being increasingly deployed across a range of services. However, embedding public values (e.g. effectiveness, efficiency, fairness, and privacy) in theDesign of these technologies is often complex. Not sufficiently supporting these values leads to service delivery failure and ethical and societal issues affecting service applicants. The project will outline and validate guiding principles for the design of major types of AI technologies to support generating public value through these technologies. The project will need to use …
