Dr. Tian (Frank) Feng - Urban Modelling and Understanding with Machine Learning
Date: Tuesday, 25 September 2018 Time: 6:00pm - 6:30pm: Refreshments 6:30pm - 7:30pm: Lecture 7:45pm onwards: Dinner (at a nearby restaurant) Venue: Room 430, Level 5, Building 4, University of Technology Sydney (this room is also known as the Maths Grid Room CB[masked]) Dr Tian (Frank) Feng University of New South Wales Urban Modelling and Understanding with Machine Learning Urban modelling and urban understanding have been two active research topics for years in the communities of computer graphics and computer vision. Their applications benefit a wide variety of areas such as entertainment production, urban planning and city management. Although conventional approaches have gained considerable successes on resolving relevant problems, there still exist critical gaps about how to deal with high-dimensional solution spaces due to the complexity of a city. The rise of machine learning, however, provides a new perspective for addressing such concerns, and a number of works have shown the potential of machine learning methods for resolving problems of urban modelling and understanding. In a context of urban modelling and understanding, this talk reviews the mainstream approaches and focuses on the application of machine learning. A brief introduction to the EPICentre’s latest achievements on visualisation is also included. Biography Dr Tian (Frank) Feng is currently serving as a postdoctoral fellow at the UNSW Art & Design, Expanded Perception and Interaction Centre (EPICentre). He received his PhD degree in Information Systems Technology and Design from the Singapore University of Technology and Design in 2017 and his BSc degree in Geographic Information Systems from Zhejiang University (China) in 2008. Prior to joining the EPICentre, he worked as a software engineer on digital arts at TeamLab Inc (Japan). His research interests focus on Computer Graphics, Computer Vision, and Geographic Information Systems.

What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in the theory and practice of statistical modelling and data analysis. While the group is organized by the NSW Branch of the Statistical Society of Australia, anyone is welcome to attend our events. We hold a seminar most months and participate in various relevant conferences and workshops. We also hold occasional workshops and short courses. Our members include students and academics from various NSW universities as well as people working as statisticians and data analysts in government and industry. Our seminars are generally given by people who are well known in the field and we emphasize applied work likely to be of broad interest.
