Keynote 2: "U are happy life": telling the future's stories

Speaker: Genevieve Bell, Intel Labs

Abstract: To be announced

Bio: Bell joined Intel in 1998 as a researcher in Corporate Technology Group's People and Practices Research team — Intel's first social science oriented research team. She helped drive the company's first non-U.S. field studies to inform business group strategy and products and conducted groundbreaking work in urban Asia in the early 2000s. Bell has been the driving force behind Intel’s emerging user-experience focus: over the last decade, she has fundamentally changed how Intel envisions, plans, and develops its platforms.
Bell currently leads an R&D team of social scientists, interaction designers, human factors engineers, and a range of technology researchers to create the next generation of compelling user experiences across a range of internet-connected devices, platforms, and services. She will drive user-centered experience and design across the compute continuum.
Prior to joining Intel, Bell was a lecturer in the Department of Anthropology at Stanford University. She has written more than 25 journal articles and book chapters on a range of subjects focused on the intersection of technology and society. Her book, "Divining the Digital Future," co-authored with Prof. Paul Dourish, will be released by MIT Press in spring 2011.
Raised in Australia, Bell received her bachelor's degree in anthropology from Bryn Mawr College in 1990. She received her master's and doctorate degrees in anthropology from Stanford University in 1993 and 1998, respectively.

Title:  When was the last time your project made you smile?: Doing Computer Science that builds Social Capital”, 
Speaker: Svetha Venkatesh, Curtin University, Australia

Abstract: In this talk, Professor Ventakesh describes her close encounters in pursuit of early intervention technology for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. ASD affects 1 in 150 children at an estimated cost of $3.2 million per sufferer, a figure that pales beside the cost to sufferers and parents in anxiety, anger, stress, and depression. Fast and reliable early intervention is critical, but current approaches are laborious and costly, and waiting lists are long. In response, she has partnered with Autism West and psychologists at the cutting edge of therapy to build early intervention software based on evidence-based learning theory that delivers stimulus of increasing complexity and adapts to learner performance. She shows why it changes the landscape of early intervention, and demonstrates the first iPad-based Waitlist program. She describes her journey, its challenges and when it made her smile.

Bio: Dr. Svetha Venkatesh holds the Inaugural John Curtin Distinguished Professorship. Venkatesh was elected a Fellow of the International Association of Pattern Recognition in 2004 for contributions to formulation and extraction of semantics in multimedia data. She is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering. She is on the editorial board of the both premier multimedia journals: IEEE Transactions on Multimedia and ACM Transactions on Multimedia, and a program member of several international conferences such as ACM Multimedia. Venkatesh has developed frontier technologies in large scale pattern recognition exemplified through 346 publications including 2 books, 12 book chapters, 78 journal and 254 conference publications. She has won over $12.1 million in competitive research funding since 1992. Venkatesh and her colleagues have filed 9 patents, of which 3 are full patents. One start-up company, spun out of these patents is Virtual Observer and based on the paradigm shifting methods that leverages mobile cameras to deliver wide area surveillance solutions. The technology won the Runner up in both the WA Inventor of the year (Early stage) and Global Security Challenge (Asia-Pacific) in 2007. A recent spin-out company is iCetana and is based on novel methods to find anomalies in video data. iCetana won the Broadband Innovation Award at the prestigious Tech23 in 2010.

November 30, 2011, 11:00-11:30                   Talk 2
Title: “Multimodal Situational Awareness for Societal-scale Emergency Response”,
Speaker: Nalini Venkatasubramanian, University of California, Irvine, USA.

Abstract: In this talk, Professor Venkatasubramanianshows how technology and research can help save lives and property by responding effectively to natural and manmade disasters. Situational information is critical in disasters –effective response relies on extracting actionable awareness from multiple sources in crises.  Multimedia information sources provide rich content (e.g. speech, audio, images, video, text, social media) regarding the evolving state of the disaster – this information is vital for creating awareness that leads to improved decision making and response.  She will describe her research experiences in developing and deploying multimodal situational awareness technologies for emergency response. She will highlight key fundamental scientific research problems and solution strategies for the collection/dissemination of situational content and walk through the process of translating this to validation and deployment of real world system artifacts for the emergency response community.  This work opens up new possibilities for the design of resilient, adaptive and scalable societal scale systems of the future.

Bio: Dr. Nalini Venkatasubramanian  is currently a Professor in the School of Information and Computer Science at the University of California Irvine. She has had significant research and industry experience in the areas of distributed systems, adaptive middleware, pervasive and mobile computing, distributed multimedia and formal methods and has published extensively in these areas. As a key member of the Center for Emergency Response Technologies at UC Irvine, Nalini's recent research has focused on enabling resilient, scalable observation and analysis of situational information from multimodal input sources, techniques for dynamic adaptation of the underlying systems to enable information flow under massive failures and the dissemination of rich notifications to members of the public at large.  Many of her research contributions have been incorporated into software artifacts which are now in use at various first responder partner sites. She is the recipient of the prestigious NSF Career Award, an Undergraduate Teaching Excellence Award from the University of California, Irvine in 2002 and multiple best paper awards. Prof. Venkatasubramanian has served in numerous program and organizing committees of conferences on middleware, distributed systems and multimedia and on the editorial boards of journals. She received her M.S and Ph.D in Computer Science from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. Prior to arriving at UC Irvine, Nalini was a Research Staff Member at the Hewlett-Packard Laboratories in Palo Alto, California.
