UNSW Canberra awarded six ARC Discovery Projects
Research into big data analytics, planning problems in dynamic enviroments and evolutionary computation framework are among six UNSW Canberra projects awarded more than $2.4 million in Australian Research Council (ARC) funding.
Seven academics from UNSW Canberra’s School of Engineering and IT were awarded the ARC Discovery Projects on Tuesday.
The Discover Projects scheme provides funding for research projects that can be undertaken by individual researchers or research teams.
The objectives of the scheme include: supporting excellent basic and applied research by individuals and teams; encouraging high-quality research; enhancing international collaborations in research and expanding Australia’s knowledge base and research capabilities.
UNSW Canberra 2018 ARC Discovery Project grant recipients
Associate Professor Daoyi Dong aims to develop new theories and algorithms to enhance system identification capabilities in quantum cybernetics.
Professor Jiankun Hu has proposed a framework on energy big data analytics from security and privacy perspectives.
Professor Mark Pickering project involves motion and shape estimation tools that allow video content to be predicted at any point in time using frame data.
Professor Tapabrata Ray’s project presents a novel approach to solve optimisation problems involving iterative solvers.
Professor Ruhul Sarker and Dr Daryl Essam’s project aims develop a framework for solving planning problems in dynamic environments with uncertainties.
