Information Technology Research
The Information Technology staff and research students are engaged in a variety of research projects, many of which are in collaboration with other researchers around the world including France, China, Singapore, Sri Lanka, UK and the US. More recently, IT staff initiated the formation of a research group known as the Applied Informatics Research (AIR) Group.
AIR’s primary focus is to find solutions to real-world problems through applied informatics. Such research can potentially be of benefit to a range of sectors including e-business, health, computer gaming, energy efficiency and online security.
Some of the exciting recent projects undertaken by AIR include:
- Analysis of heart rate variability using multi spectral entropy measures
- Use of pattern recognition to identify mild cognitive impairment
- Finding patterns in large scale disturbances of the US electricity network
- Intelligent pattern analysis for household power appliances monitoring
- Integration of Cloud technologies into teaching
- Integration of business intelligence for medical based digital ecosystems
- Authentication and security protection in a digital environment
- Information, perception, and cognition in multi-sensory computer games
- Designing sound in computer games
- The Virtual Pharmacy
