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 and fuzzy logic methods. This is human centred computing.
I am teaching COMP1710/COMP6780 Web Development and Design in 1st semester 2018, and COMP4660/COMP8420 Bio-inspired Computing: Applications and Interfaces, also in 1st semester 2018. I was also course co-ordinator for COMP3650/COMP6365 System Architectural Understanding and the Human Brain in 1st semester 2016. In 2nd semester 2017, I was 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 am strongly engaged with the following conferences:
- JCSG 2018 - Joint Conference on Serious Games 2018 in Darmstadt, 7-8 November 2018. The 30th Australian Conference on Human-Computer Interaction "digital, physical, interactive, human," in Melbourne, 5-7 December 2018.
- AI 2018: The 31th Australasian Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Wellington, 11-14 December, 2018.
- 25th International Conference on Neural Information Processing in Siem Reap, Cambodia, 14-16 December 2018.
