WEDNESDAY 30 MAY – LUNCHTIME SEMINAR WITH DR SUVODEEP MAZUMDAR (LECTURER IN COMPUTING)
The essence of a city is its citizens and communities. A city’s infrastructure and associated services play a vital role in citizens’ day to day living and their overall quality of life. Gathering data in a traditional approach, i.e. using precise physical sensors, is a highly expensive task, involving procurement, installation and maintenance of a number of sensors.
The wide adoption and availability of smartphones, Internet-enabled devices, IOT sensors and increased accessibility to information has paved the way for large numbers of citizens and communities to contribute toward decision-making. In this spirit, crowdsourcing information from citizens and communities is a growing topic of interest, where authorities, decision makers enlist the help of citizens in solving complex societal, environmental and technological challenges in a collaborative manner. This talk will discuss findings from several projects over the past few years exploring a variety of engagement mechanisms and crowdsourcing technologies.
Dr. Suvodeep Mazumdar researches Big Data Analytics, conducting inter-disciplinary research on highly engaging, interactive, and visual mechanisms in conjunction with querying techniques for the navigation, exploration and understanding of complex datasets. He employs iterative user centered design techniques to implement and evaluate interactive user interfaces and has an extensive experience collaborating and co-designing solutions with various user communities. He has worked within a variety of application domains such as Aerospace Engineering, Emergency Response, Sports Informatics and Metropolitan mobility. Dr. Mazumdar was PI on Crowd4Sat and BD4M (European Space Agency projects investigating Big Data and crowdsourcing)and has extensive experience in large European projects.
