Multimedia technologies constitute a multi-disciplinary field that extends beyond engineering to reach the arts, sciences and humanities. The main contributive areas include engineering, computer science, artificial intelligence, communications, design, ergonomics and human factors, cognitive psychology and philosophy. The impact of multimedia applications is tremendous – it can range from medicine to entertainment; from bridging the societal digital divide to remote space exploration. In short, our imagination is the limit. At the Faculty of Engineering, many professors and students are dedicated to advancing the frontiers of multimedia technology. The research teams have acquired more than $45million from the Industry Support Fund and Innovation and Technology Fund over the past decade to support various kinds of multimedia research and development projects, a strong indication of the strength and commitment in this important area. The mission of the Institute is to spearhead, conduct, promote and co-ordinate research in advanced engineering topics. There is no end to the list of areas to be explored and the plan is to give priority to research topics that are both exciting and innovative. The Institute is also aspired to transfer its research results to industry for practical application and to put across to the community at large the role of engineering as a driving force for human development through educational activities. Multimedia Research Centre is overlooking multiple ongoing projects like: Managing and Analyzing Big Graph Data. It boasts of a large number of successful projects as well like: Face Recognition Across Ages Through Binary Tree Learning, Amplify-and-forward Schemes for Wireless Communications, Time Critical Applications over a Shared Network, Semantic Analysis for Image Resizing, Security and Detection Protocols for P2P-Live Streaming Systems.
The following is the list of proceedings by scholars from Multimedia Research Centre that are published in OMICS International journals and conferences.
