Tilburg center for Cognition and Communication (TiCC)

We study how people communicate with each other and how computer systems can be taught to communicate with us.


TiCC Colloquium: Roberto Martinez-Maldonado

What: Multimodal and writing analytics research at the Connected Intelligence Centre, UT Sydney
Where: DZ 10
When: Thursday, 20 July 2017, 12:45 - 13:45 hours


The Learning Analytics research and practice field has been steadily growing in the last few years. Will this translate into a real shift in education? In the Connected Intelligence Centre (CIC) at the University of Sydney, we are working on making the most of student's data by applying data science techniques, from providing minimalist visual to student to generating meaning using machine learning algorithms. The principles underpinning our work include student-centred design, democracy, inclusion and ethical values. This talk is aimed at showcasing the kind of research currently unfolding at CIC, with a particular emphasis on Multimodal Learning Analytics across Physical Spaces.
