Vg Asst Prof Andrea Nanetti
All results of my research career convey into Engineering Historical Memory (EHM) (http://www.engineeringhistoricalmemory.com). EHM is both an experimental methodology and an ongoing research project for the organization of historical information in the age of data revolution, that I theorized when I was Visiting Scholar at Princeton University in 2007, to develop and test new sets of shared conceptualizations and formal specifications for content management systems in the field of heritage science. What sets it 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, and visualization solutions). The preliminary sets of formal specifications and results of tests on highly cross-linked historical data have been published in Italy in 2008 (local urban historical memory transmission), 2010 (world views and networks), and 2011 (regional man-heritage-landscape systems) when I was Adjunct Lecturer in the Faculty of Cultural Heritage Conservation of the Alma Mater Studiorum-University of Bologna (Italy). For details, see the publications list on my personal homepage http://www.andreananetti.com The master plan designing and the Web strategies of EHM are developed by Meduproject Ltd. (a company that I established in 2002 as academic spin-off of the Department of History and Methods for Cultural Heritage Conservation of the University of Bologna, after having been awarded in 2001 a prize in the first Italian business plan competition devoted to projects with high content of knowledge and having been financially supported by the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Environment). Research teams and fundraising are working in Venice, People's Republic of China, Australia, USA, Turkey, Russia, Egypt, India, and Singapore. Using English as lingua franca, heritage science scholars of all countries are invited to use EHM to organize and share literary, documentary, art historical, cartographical, archaeological, photographical, oral, and musical data sets. EHM, as a research project, is based on the question “What shall the historian do having all data available in a digitalized form?” What the implications will be for studying the past when ALL archival materials will be digitized and available in any language? From a media perspective, the challenge is to let the system work on a visual base for art historians interested in investigating technological intercontinental networks: data mapping and visualization of the diffusion of technologies related to art (ceramics/porcelain, silk, glass, paper, lost-wax casting bronze production, pottery kilns, and so on). If the general spirit is shared with Wikipedia, Wikimapia (where users and guests mapped over 20'000'000 objects on an interactive global map), and other collaborative databases, what makes the difference here is the application of the highest standards of scholarly edition and publication for each different typology of historical source. The most recent engagement of the project is to develop and test tools (technologies and processes) that can be readily adopted by all users to visualize high volumes of data through maps, timelines, tag clouds, and/or interconnected graphs on different scales. Because, not only historians and art historians, but also artists, students, and all sorts of other users will be welcome to create and share their own narratives, by tagging, connecting and recognizing links among elements of the historical landscape.

Assoc Prof Arul Indrasen Chib
Dr. Arul Chib focuses on mobile phone healthcare systems, and pursues action-oriented research in varied cross-cultural contexts, particularly in resource-constrained environments. 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. Global collaborations with IDRC, UNICEF, and UNFPA have led to research grants of S$3.7Mn. His work with Acehnese midwives has led to great interest in the field of mobile health (mHealth) technologies. Of note is that the original JAVA application for mobile phones was developed in 2006, well in advance of the latest innovations in mobile-based applications. This ground-breaking technology to improve maternal and infant health was developed for 223 rural midwives based in the tsunami-affected region of Aceh Besar, Indonesia, impacting as many as 600 villages. This ICT project, facilitated by cell phones and data sending mobile technology, uses the existing pool of knowledge in the rural health system to bolster local resources. Prior to working on tsunami relief, Dr. Chib collaborated with a Peruvian NGO, Instituto Peruano de Paternidad Responsable, to develop an interactive computer-based multimedia game to deliver information about sexual and reproductive health, particularly about HIV/AIDS. Dr. Chib is currently extending his work in mHealth by examining issues of power and influence caused by the mobile phone usage amongst community healthcare workers in Papaua New Guinea, Thailand, India, and China. 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 and Communication Yearbook, the flagship publications of the International Communication Association. Chib has published in the best refereed journals, such as the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, ranked first amongst Thompson Reuters communication journals, the Journal of Health Communication, ranked first amongst health communication journals, and Information Technologies & International Development, ranked first amongst journals in the field of information and communication technologies for development. He has contributed to book chapters from leading publishers such as Cambridge Scholars, Hampton Press, Springer, and Taylor & Francis. In 2012, along with Dr. Roger Harris, he released the edited volume, Linking Research to Practice (2012, ISEAS Singapore). His research papers have been adopted as syllabi in institutions in Copenhagen, Geneva, Manila, and Virginia. He is currently working on the authored book, mHealth in Developing Countries (forthcoming, Taylor & Francis UK). Dr. Chib’s work in as many as nine countries has been profiled in media outlets ranging from the United Nations Chronicle to the Singaporean press. He has been a guest speaker at numerous global events, and in 2012, gave the keynote speech at the Media Health Communication Conference in Munich. He is a member of the organizing committees of the IFIP 8.6 2013 and ICTD 2012 conferences. As Assistant Director at the Singapore Internet Research Center, Dr. Chib leads the Strengthening Information Society Research Capacity Alliance programme.

Assoc Prof James Patrick Williams
Professor Williams is trained in the symbolic interactionist tradition of sociology, a social-psychological perspective that foregrounds language and meaning as key dimensions of understanding the everyday life. Prof Williams' research focuses on two specific areas of interest: youth sub/cultures, and digital media cultures. Much of Prof Williams' publications in recent years have centered on the construction of subcultural selves/identities among young people who feel in some way separate from mainstream society. His main contributions to sociology have been theorizing (1) the role new media technologies play in facilitating the development and diffusion of subcultures and subcultural identities and (2) theorizing the social construction of subcultural authenticity. His second interest relates to the increasing salience of fantasy and digital games in everyday life. He has co-edited two books related to fantasy and video games and is interested in issues of role-identity and deviant behavior within digital environments.

To investigate Design, Digital Media and Media Arts from the interactive and embodied media perspectives. To investigate Artistic, Aesthetic and Technological impact of digital media on humans under the following paradigm: As digital media, pervasive and ubiquitous computing are increasingly being part of our every day life, the researches focus on the human - the role of the body - at various levels of the digital domain experience. Beyond the sole paradigm of Human Computer Interfaces (HCI), these researches will analyze and implement projects across the spectrum of Art & Design while correlating those to the spectrum of being close to the body -objects-, to a broader sphere -space- and finally to a global container -culture-.

Animation has been of interest to me since I did my undergraduate work at Arizona State University where in 1980 I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts focusing in Drawing. At that time, I experimented with animation doing short clips with clay figurines. I went on to study animation at the University of California Los Angeles Film School doing most of my academic studies in the 1980’s with a focus on Animation. Immediately I began to experiment with interactive technologies doing my MFA thesis work in laser light. It was projected onto the Federal Building in Westwood, California during the 1984 Olympic Games. I went on to other experimentation in interactive works at Philips Interactive developing CD-I or hypermedia/interactive games. Part of the attraction of doing animation research in industry was the ability to develop ground-breaking techniques. At that time I experimented with the Symbolics Corporations Graphic System. That work led me to work in Japan at Tokyo Broadcasting System Vision, and finally to Acclaim Entertainment where I worked developing methodologies for use with motion capture technologies. As senior artist we created the first use of motion capture in a computer video game. I joined DreamWorks Feature Animation shortly thereafter doing crowds for the “Prince of Egypt” as well as other feature films, later I joined Rhythm and Hues Studios Los Angeles though there the work was mostly production related. My academic research is concerned with exploring animation production and popular thematic trends. In 2008 I received funding that enabled research that resulted as a final result of inquiry a short animated movie (18mn 27sec) called [Vengeance+Vengeance]. Although the movie is authored in a game engine it is designed to have interaction primarily in visual styles. Initially these designs were morphed in real-time in an interactive playback system. Our interactive version also blended stylistically different audio tracks. The movie was made with a custom authoring system. The final outcome of research is a complete short film where during authorship the visual design of the characters and sets change dynamically to manipulate the viewer’s experience. The final is baked out into a rendered format and plays as any movie plays. In what ultimately ended up being a director driven system, the characterization was varied between three design targets: extreme, standard and cute. Cute-style targeted cartoon-like rounded shapes and colorful though soft tones. This style was used to draw empathy from the audience making the character appear more child-like and vulnerable. Standard-style targeted assumed naturalistic proportions and colors, this was our heroic action setting. Extreme-style attempted a more film-noir look with sharp, exaggerated though human-like proportions. This style used more texture detail and contrasting tones within the scene and was used portray danger and threat. I call the toolset/methodology of the research an Active Cinema movie system. The research process included an examination of the impact images and imagery to emotion. The work was completed in July of 2012.
Asst Prof Martin Constable
I am deeply fascinated by the way that compositing technologies (like Photoshop and Nuke) have changed the shape of our culture. The role of the artist has been completely re-defined by these technologies, a change that is comparable to the change wrought upon painters by the invention of photography. In my work as an artist I try to cross-breed the disciplines of photography, painting and visual effects. My other line of research is in the field of computational aesthetics. I have been working in collaboration with computer engineers on problems relating to the automatic and semi-automatic augmentation of the aesthetic attributes of photographs. One key aspect of this work is the realization of how important contrast is in determining the key style aspects of an image. Though this work is ongoing, I can say that image contrast is not what most people think it is. One of my first projects in NTU was to design a Blackboard tool ('Visual Acuity') to aid the grading of visual art assignments. This was such a success that it was instituted by the university as a permanent fixture. Currently I am completely hot for the possibilities offered by the Lightfield camera (Mark Levoy et al: http://graphics.stanford.edu/papers/lfcamera/). I doubt that many people fully realize how much this technology can cnage the way that we think about images and the way that we edit them. Some wikis: (eratic server, please be patient) - My teaching Wiki on Photoshop use: http://opticalenquiry.com/photoshop - My teaching Wiki on Nuke (compositor) use: http://opticalenquiry.com/photoshop - My Wiki covering ther work produced by my artists collaborative 'Grieve Perspective': http://http://grievethink.com One of the most exciting things about working at NTU is the wonderful possibilities available for collaboration with engineers. Any form of inter disciplinary collaboration is difficult, and science and art collaboration even more so. However the rewards are substantial. One of my heros in this regard is Albert Munsell (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Henry_Munsell) an artist whose asked a few simple and fundamental questions about color. In exploring these questions he developed the Munsell Color System which in turn became the Lab color space.
