Adam FlaxEvent detection using social mediaSteven SchockaertDavid W WalkerBSc
Note that the student is on the HPC course, so this project must contain an HPC element! Twitter data, Flickr photos and social media in general, are increasingly used to understand and analyse what is happening in the world around us. For this purpose, it is especially useful that many tweets and Flickr photos have explicit meta-data associated with them, such as geographical coordinates, a time stamp, or (in the case of Flickr) descriptive tags. The aim of this project is to analyse data fr...[more]
Ahmad MoosaISOLDE - Energy prediction systems for TATA steel UKHelen R PhillipsMatthew J W MorganMSc
ISOLDE stands for Integrated Site Optimisation of Supply and Demand of Energy. Tata Steel Group???s business objectives are to reduce its operational costs and to become the benchmark in terms of energy efficiency and CO2 emissions. The reduction of energy consumption and energy costs is therefore very important. An advanced energy management system will contribute to this objective. The overall objective of the project is to build and implement an energy management system. This system will de...[more]
Aled O MasonVisualising Malicious Network ActivityOmer F RanaMichael DaleyBSc
My aim for this project will be to build a software tool to visualise network data provided by INSRV, specifically to analyse the behaviour of malicious network packets. Additionally I would like to enhance this software to visualise network activity in real-time.[more]
David J HarrisonBuilding a taxonomy of tweet types and automatically classifying tweets into these typesIrena SpasicAndrew C JonesBSc
People use Twitter for different reasons, e.g. business, personal, sharing information or emotion, etc, and broadcast tweets of different nature. You will analyse data on Twitter to develop a taxonomy of the basic types of tweets. You will then collect tweets that belong to the classes in your proposed taxonomy and investigate the language usage across different types (e.g. personal messages probably start with pronouns such as 'I' or 'my'). After collecting an initial set of lexical (words) and...[more]
Gwenno H HughesSports and Surveillance Video Analysis and AnnotationDave MarshallFrank C LangbeinBSc
There a good few potential projects in the area of Video Analysis available: 1. Sports Video: This work builds on an on going collaboration with the Welsh Rugby Union and Swansea University. Every game of Rugby Union (both International and Region/Club) is annotated by hand by expert sports coders employed by the Welsh Rugby Union. Key events like Tries, Kicks, Scrums, Lineouts, Tackles etc. are annotated using specialist software (www.sportstec.com/Products_Sportscode). This is outputted in X...[more]
James J CohenMachine translation of guitar audioDave MarshallXianfang SunBSc
Polyphonic transcription of guitar audio with an aim to capture this data in real time for use in a guitar training tool.[more]
James WhitePredicting future crime activity utilizing machine learning and Flickr metadataSteven SchockaertIrena SpasicBSc
Flickr photos and social media in general, are increasingly used to understand and analyse what is happening in the world around us. For this purpose, it is especially useful that many Flickr photos have explicit meta-data associated with them, such as geographical coordinates, a time stamp, or (in the case of Flickr) descriptive tags. The aim of this project is to relate publicly available crime statistics to Flickr metadata associated with photos taken in a particular demographic. This infor...[more]

Matthew A NunesParallel performance study of scientific codes using CUDA and OpenCLDavid W WalkerXianfang SunBSc
This project is aimed at comparing the performance of OpenCL and CUDA on a variety of algorithms. The algorithms that will be implemented are: 1) The Matrix Multiplication algorithm 2) The Laplace equation 3) An image blurring algorithm 4) A molecular dynamics algorithm 5) A cellular automata algorithm The main variable being measured and compared is the runtime. Data will be gathered by varying the problem sizes and language specific variables (such as chunk size, number of threads per block ...[more]
Nabeel AmirRacing GameFrank C LangbeinYukun LaiBSc
The project that I have decided to develop is a 2D, top-down racing game for Android devices. A player will race against other computer players from one side of a city to the other, in a car. The computer player will require some form of artificial intelligence so they are able to move around and eventually finish the level, the intelligence of the computer players will vary to make the game more enjoyable. Map could be pre-generated with buildings, pavements and grass. Cars will not be allow...[more]
Robin H S HawkinsMassively Collaborative Composition of Music by EvolutionKirill SidorovRalph MartinBSc
Musical compositions are usually written by one person, or a small group of individuals. It is very difficult to involve large numbers of people in the writing process. For a large group of individuals to compose music together, each individual will only be able to make a small contribution to the whole. Non-musicians are not able to contribute to a composition with complex musical information. The input of all composers in such a scenario will have to be a series of simple, incremental refineme...[more]
Sam Douthwaite-RobinsonLift Share ApplicationDavid W WalkerAlun D PreeceBSc
Public transport fares for long distance journeys are on the rise, and although environmentally friendly they???re not always economically friendly. For many journeys the car remains to be the most convenient way of travel; however not always the most affordable when paying for a journey alone. From personal experience alone sharing a lift is far cheaper than making a journey alone. ICT is able to help people this situation. With an ever growing of people turning to online services for day-to-d...[more]
Thomas J EdwardsDeveloping a video plugin for OBO-Edit to support physiotherapy applications of this open-source ontology editorIrena SpasicFrank C LangbeinBSc
OBO format emerged as a "biologist friendly" alternative to OWL, a Web ontology language, and has quickly become widely accepted in the biomedical community (see OBO Foundry). OBO format has been used to represent a wide variety of biomedical ontologies. It is typically used with OBO-Edit, an open source ontology editor written in Java. One contribution to this open source project is Term Image Plugin, which enables users to view an image that is connected to an ontology term. As part of ongoing...[more]

Victoria R GreenIPad application to aid learning within primary schoolsAlia I AbdelmotyStuart M AllenBSc
As many primary schools are bringing iPad's in to classrooms as part of children's learning I will build an iPad app for use by children to learn, and for teachers to gather statistics on their progress within specific subjects. The project would require me to research into the subjects children are learning at year 6, and design an interface and system which is usable for both the children and teachers.[more]
