Professor Panos Louveiris and I (collaborating with Dr Audrey Guinchard from the University of Essex ) have received £850K of funding from the EPSRC to investigate how novel trading platforms are able to facilitate the use of personal data. The project is titled Digital Personhood: Digital Prosumer — Establishing a ‘Futures Market’ for Digital Personhood Data and will involve the design and implementation of the legal, technical and business underpinnings for such ventures.
I will be looking for a couple of programmers over the summer – June and July – to work on mobile and Web applications. I am looking for developers with experience of Android, HTML5, PHP – see Brunel’s job shop in a few days time for the advertisement. These projects could lead on to FYP projects (if you are in DISC L2).
Myself and Professor Terry Young have received £350K of funding from the
Technology Strategy Board (TSB) to investigate how novel mobile and Web based
knowledge platforms are able to support the economic modelling and co-design of
medical diagnostic devices. The project is titled TEA-PoCT (Tools for
evaluation around point of care testing) and will extend models developed by
the MATCH Programme (www.match.ac.uk) with collaborators at the University of Birmingham.
