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 for current students
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 and fuzzy logic methods. This is human centred computing.
I taught COMP1710/COMP6780 Web Development and Design, and COMP4660/COMP8420 Bio-inspired Computing: Applications and Interfaces, in 1st semester 2016. I was also course co-ordinator for COMP3650/COMP6365 System Architectural Understanding and the Human Brain in 1st semester 2015. In semester 2, I will be course co-ordinator for COMP3900/COMP6390 Human Computer Interface Design and Evaluation.
- Biologically inspired computing: includes neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary programming.
- Neural networks for feature selection, rule extraction, explanations, architecture related to tasks, cascade correlation
- Fuzzy logic: fuzzy interpolation, fuzzy signatures.
- Interactive evolutionary computation in New Media or games, generation of art.
- Eye gaze inference.
- Natural and Novel interfaces.
I ran the 17th International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICONIP2010) in Sydney 22-25 Nov 2010.
I ran the Australasian Computer Science Week of Conferences (ACSW2016) in Canberra 2-5 Feb 2016.
