Assoc Prof Andrea NanettiDr. Andrea Nanetti, a scholar—who started his research vocation in historical studies at the advent of computer operating systems with graphical user interfaces—he has always been fascinated by the exponential growth of interdependencies between artificial actions (i.e., made by humans) and computational operations, in terms of both quantity and quality (i.e., actions completed by electronic devices able to store and process data, typically in binary form, according to instructions given to them in a variable program or machine learning, which allows algorithms to learn through experience, and do things that we are not able to program). With this interest, he is proposing the theoretical need to direct traditional disciplinary knowledge towards a formal science of heritage, which will focus on how data and information—now encoded in complex interactions of written, pictorial, sculptural, architectural, and digital records, oral memories, practices, and performed rituals (i.e., the treasure of human experiences)—may be inherited by machine learning algorithms. This state-of-the-art science pioneers integrated action plans and solutions in response to, and in anticipation of, the exponential growth of emerging needs in our increasingly complex human society. In practice, the research uses multidisciplinary and trans-disciplinary methods to identify case studies for interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary teamwork investigations. Since 2007 my main research project is EHM-Engineering Historical Memory (started on http://www.engineeringhistoricalmemory.com and migrated to http://ehmazure.cloudapp.net in 2015). EHM is both an experimental methodology and an ongoing research project for the organization of historical information in the machine learning age. I first theorized it as a Visiting Scholar at Princeton University in 2007. EHM develops and tests new sets of shared conceptualizations and formal specifications for content management systems in the domain of Heritage Science (how to engineer the treasure of human experiences to serve decision making, knowledge transmission, and visionarios). I mainly work on history of historiography and new ontologies for the semantic web, inspired by Derrida notion of trace, Ginzburg's "thread and traces" theory, and last but not least Umberto Eco's semiotics (e.g. 2007 Dall'Albero al Labirinto, published in English in 2015 as From the Tree to the Labyrinth). What sets this research apart from other approaches is a focus on developing and applying computationally intensive techniques to achieve this goal (e.g. pattern recognition, data mining, machine learning algorithms derived from other disciplines, interactive and visualization solutions).

Assoc Prof Arul Indrasen ChibDr. Arul Chib pursues action-oriented research in varied cross-cultural contexts. His research agenda focuses on the impact and role of mobile phone in (a) healthcare systems in resource-constrained environments of developing countries, and (b) transnational migration to developed countries. He investigates the key factors influencing the adoption of technology for positive health outcomes, and has engaged in the design and development of healthcare technology systems spanning online and mobile platforms. He increasingly interested in issues of power, with one research trajectory focusing on the intersection of gender with technology, and the role of agency and appropriation in the achievement of goals ranging from socio-economic development, human well-being and empowerment, and societal change. He has published over 50 research articles. Global collaborations with IDRC, Red Cross Red Crescent, UNICEF, UNFPA, World Vision have led to research grants of S$ 5Mn. At the Singapore Internet Research Center, Dr. Chib has led the SIRCA programme (established 2008), mentoring 30 emerging country researchers in Asia, Africa and Latin America, with mentoring events in Atlanta, Bangkok, Cape Town, Jamaica, Mauritius and Singapore. The SIRCA III programme is currently focused on theory-building in the area of Open Development, and runs till 2017. Dr. Chib's contributions have led to a number of research awards, including the 2011 Prosper.NET-Scopus Award for the use of ICTs for sustainable development. This award was accompanied by a fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, one of the highest honours within the European scholarly tradition. He has been awarded fellowships at Ludwig Maxmilians University and University of Southern California, and the Best Graduate Student Award of S. I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University. He serves on the editorial boards of Human Communication Research, Communication Yearbook, and Mobile Media and Communication, and is Senior Editor of The Electronic journal for Information Systems in Developing Countries. Dr. Chib’s research in as many as nine countries has been profiled in the media ranging from the United Nations Chronicle to the Singaporean press. He has lectured at numerous global events and presented the keynote speech at the Media Health Communication Conference 2012 in Munich Germany. He is the General Conference Chair for ICTD2015, and a member of the organizing committees of the IFIP 8.6 2013 and ICTD 2012. He has been an expert speaker at events organized by UNESCO, UN-APCICT. Dr. Chib has worked at the local level with non-governmental agencies such as INPPARES, Nyaya Health, Text to Change, Udaan, UNICEF and World Vision, securing external grants worth over S$ 5 million. Arul has lived and worked extensively in India, Indonesia, China, Peru, Singapore, Thailand, and the United States of America. Most recently, Associate Prof Arul Chib has released the SIRCA II co-edited volume ‘Impact of Information Society Research in the Global South’ (New York: Springer; ISBN 978-981-287-380-4). The international scholarly community has taken a variety of approaches to question the impact of information society research on populations in the Global South. This book addresses two aspects-Impact of research: How is the research on ICTs in the Global South playing a role in creating an Information Society? (for example, policy formulation, implementation in practice, and shaping of public opinion), Secondly, what does the Research on Impact reveal: What is the evidence for the impact of ICTs on society? The volume brings together a multiplicity of voices from developing countries and approaches within the social scientific community to address these vital questions.
