- CNGL/CSET: Systems Framework and Integrated Language
- The Centre for Next Generation Localisation (CNGL)
is a Centre for Science, Engineering & Technology (CSET) funded
by SFI to carry out the fundamental and applied research
underpinning the design, development, implementation and evaluation
of the new localisation technologies. It will address the issues of
volume of data, information access, and personalisation. I
coordinate the Systems Framework research track and act as principal
investigator in the areas of Interaction Design and Automatic
Annotation and Labelling of Natural Language Texts.

- ECOMMET: Enhanced Computing Support for Multidisciplinary Medical
- Multidisciplinary medical team meetings have
become an established practice in many hospitals. Teams of
experts routinely come together to discuss cases and patient
management decisions. Such discussions generate a wealth of
information that is not captured in traditional medical
records. Although recent technological and organisational
developments have made digital recording of entire meetings a
distinct possibility, the usefulness of this kind of
audiovisual database is dependent on how effectively its
contents can be accessed. This project investigates human and
technological issues involved in building advanced computing
support for collaboration, production and access of electronic
medical records in those contexts.

- Temporal and Contextual Data Visualisation for Collaborative
- The goal of this project is to develop and
evaluate basic techniques to support visualisation and retrieval of
information from records of collaborative multimodal
interaction. The project aims to develop techniques to be used in a
large variety of organisational memory devices to support
computer-mediated human interaction. This research builds on a
theoretical framework for data visualisation and retrieval based on
pattern discovery which encompasses elements of artificial
intelligence and human computer interface research. Extensive
empirical evaluation and incremental prototyping has been used in
order to test techniques and assess the validity of our theoretical
