Dr. Jian Zhang is an associate professor in Faculty of Engineering and IT and research leader of Multimedia and Media Analytics Program in UTS Advanced Analytics Institute (AAi).
Big Data has ushered in an exciting new age in data exploration and utilization and offers a unique opportunity to identify new trends and patterns in diverse and emerging types of data. Every day, around 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are generated. In fact, 90% of the data in the world today was created in the last two years!
Are you sick and tired of wasting time in the shops, looking for that perfect outfit, trying on an endless number of different ensembles in different fitting rooms in different stores only to find that the garment you have chosen is either not flattering, the colour doesn’t suit you or you simply don’t like it?
Formally opened by NSW Minister for Innovation the Hon Victor Dominello MP, the sensory augmenting capabilities of the UTS Data Arena allow researchers to observe interrelationships, patterns and anomalies not normally seen in data portrayed in a 2D format. This interactive 3D visualisation system enables the exploration and visualization of data.
Led by A/Prof Jian Zhang, AAi’s Multimedia and New Media Analytics research group demonstrated their intelligent video surveillance and multimedia search project at the 2015 Sydney CeBIT event on 6 May.
