Departmental Team wins BCS Machine Intelligence Competition!

 

The Research Group on Development of Intelligent Environments, headed by Prof Juan Carlos Augusto from the department of Computer Science, won the first prize in this year British Computer Society (BCS) Machine Intelligence Competition which took place at BCS Headquarters in London during the 4th of October. The Middlesex University team won by a big margin against other finalist entries from Imperial College, Manchester Metropolitan, Southampton Solent/Algobroz and the University of Lincoln.

The team gave a live demonstration transmitted from the Smart Spaces Lab, currently hosted in Mdx Farmhouse, showing real advances in ambient intelligence and context-aware intelligent support. This research particularly aims at supporting vulnerable people and their carers at home. The technology uses sensors and actuators in a home automation setup, supported by a sophisticated AI architecture that reasons by analysing sensor data and provides intelligent analysis and services based on context and personalisation in real time.

The team who presented the system during the competition consisted of: M. Ali, J. C. Augusto, O. Benes, J. G. Manuel Gimenez, G. Ogbuabor, Ch. Oguego, and M. Quinde. However the team of MDX colleagues who contributed to the system one way or another was much larger. The following colleagues contributed with technical advice: Jill Stewart (S.L. in Housing & Environmental Health), Mark Springett (S.L. in CS, Interaction Design Centre), Carl James-Reynolds (S.L. in CS) and Ralph Moseley (S.L. in CS).

And the team wishes to specially thank the Department of Computer Science, the Faculty of Science and Technology management for the sustained support, as well as technical support from our university infrastructure, without all of which this achievement would not have been possible.

The team photo shows (anti-clockwise from left to right): Chimezie Leonard Oguego (PhD student), Mark Springett (S.L. in CS, Interaction Design Centre), Murad Ali (PhD student), Godwin Okechukwu Ogbuabor (PhD student), Jose Gines (MRes student), Ondrej Benes (MRes student), Juan Augusto (Head of Research Group on Intelligent Environments and of Smart Spaces Lab) and Mario Jose Quinde (PhD student).

Studentships offered as part of the Gamification to Increase Physical Activity project

The Research Group on Development of Intelligent Environments is developing Gamification solutions supported by GLL and as part of that are offering three studentships suitable for UK/EU students.

These grants are for :

  •  Master by Research (one year, full time) on a Gamification app for people with Special Needs
  •  PhD (three years, full time) on improving strategies and producing Gamification technology to attract and retain more people into phsyical activities
  •  PhD (three years, full time) on improving visual resources and using them to benefit current and future Gamification technology

Funding: for the Master by Research project the grant covers only the study fees for UK/EU students. For the two PhD grants it covers the study fees for UK/EU students and a monthly stipend of £1,000 for living expenses.

Deadline to submit your application: Monday 10th of June at 1 PM.

Contact for enquiries: Professor Juan Carlos Augusto, Head of the Research Group j.augusto@mdx.ac.uk

Women students attend BCS Lovelace Colloquium and win prize!

The Women in Computing group at Middlesex was founded in 2014. The purpose of this group is to bring together Middlesex-affiliated women who are studying or interested in Computing and to share common interests, concerns and ambitions. We have 58 members. We post events or interest and communicate via the following facebook group (closed group). Please feel free to join if you are interested.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/womenComputingmdx/

One of our aims is to help undergraduate students participate in the BCS Lovelace Colloquium, which is an annual one day conference for women students of Computing. The colloquium provides a forum for undergraduate and masters students to discuss their own work in the form of a poster contest, with cash prizes provided by industry sponsors. Also, it provides a series of inspiring talks from women in computing in industry and academia and a chance for networking and obtaining career advice.

This year, the 12th annual BCS Lovelace Colloquium was held on the 17th April at the University of Salford, Manchester. We had 6 undergraduate students participating from Computer Science, one from the first year, three from the second and two from the third. The topics of the posters were varied, e.g. one showed how to build MIRTO robots using augmented reality, another discussed technologies that help disabled learners, while another explored how big data can save our planet. This year Kristen Rebello, a third year student, won the People’s Choice Award (where all attendees vote for their favourite posters) for her poster titled “Blank is the new exciting”. The poster is about Augmented Reality as an effective medium in poster presentations, business proposals and in-class lectures, to enhance the attention and experience of the audience on augmented reality.
