Projects

The Emotion and Pain Project (2012-2014)

The Emo&Pain project aims to develop an intelligent system to support chronic pain patients with pain management. Specifically the system will monitor chronic pain patients during physical activity, assess their emotion and activity, and provide feedback and encouragement.

Project funding: £1.5 Million
Funded by: Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), UK.

Mobile App Ecosystems (2011 to current)

The project involves developing AppEco, a multi-agent model to simulate mobile app ecosystems. AppEco is used to investigate Apple’s iOS ecosystem and answer questions such as: which is the most successful app development strategy, and how should developers market their apps.

IT Future of Medicine (2011-2012)

The ITFoM project aims to provide worldwide individualised patient care by combining genomics, ICT, and medicine. The first phase of this project involves coordinating academic groups from a range of research backgrounds and industry.

Project funding: €1.5 Million
Funded by: European Commission, Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagship Scheme

Social Robots for the Elderly (2010 to 2011)

The project involved conducting focus groups and home studies with the elderly to elicit requirements for social robots that can promote their psychological wellbeing. It also involved designing a social robot that meet the requirements.

Project funding: £7,000
Funded by: UCL Crucible

Stakeholder Analysis for Large-Scale Software Projects (2009-2011)

The project involved developing methods and tools for stakeholder analysis and requirements elicitation in large software projects. The following methods and tools have been developed:

  • StakeNet: A method that uses social networks for stakeholder analysis
  • StakeRare: A method that uses collaborative filtering for requirements elicitation
  • StakeSource: A tool that uses “crowdsourcing” for stakeholder analysis and requirements elicitation

Project funding: ~£100,000
Funded by: University of New South Wales, NICTA, University College London, UCL Business PLC
