Hi, I am Tom Gedeon, Professor of Computer Science and Head of the Human Centred Computing (Hcc) Research Area of the Research School of Computer Science in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at The Australian National University in Canberra.
I am currently BIT Convenor, so please see this page on the BIT
My research is focused on the development of automated systems for information extraction, from textual as well as eye gaze and physiological human data, and for the synthesis of the extracted information into humanly useful information resources, primarily using neural network, deep learning and fuzzy logic methods. This is human centred computing. For papers see my google scholar page.
I am teaching COMP1710/COMP6780 Web Development and Design in 1st semester, and COMP4660/COMP8420 Bio-inspired Computing: Applications and Interfaces, also in 1st semester. I was also course co-ordinator for COMP3900/COMP6390 Human Computer Interface Design and Evaluation / HCI and Usability Engineering in 2nd semester.
- Human centred computing: AI on human physiological/biometric data to predict internal states such as stress, depression, emotion veracity, doubt.
- Biologically inspired computing: neural networks, deep learning, fuzzy systems, evolutionary programming.
- Deep learning for affect from images, video and thermal data.
- Neural networks for feature selection, rule extraction, explanations, architecture related to tasks, cascade correlation
- Fuzzy logic: fuzzy interpolation, fuzzy signatures.
- Eye gaze inference.
- Interactive evolutionary computation in New Media or games, generation of art.
- Natural and Novel interfaces.
I was involved with the following conferences:
- ABCs 2019 - 2nd ANU Bio-inspired Computing conference in Canberra, 20-21 July 2019.
- ICACI 2019 - 11th International Conference on Advanced Computational Intelligence in Guilin, China, 7-9 June 2019.
- 26th International Conference on Neural Information Processing in Sydney, Australia, 12-15 December 2019.
