Data Fusion Through Matrix and Tensor Decompositions: Uniqueness, Interpretability, and Diversity

December 10, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm
Unimelb – EEE Building, Level 5, Newton Room, Wilson Ave, Carlton
Melbourne, VIC 3053 Australia

In many fields today, multiple sets of data are readily available. These might either be multimodal data where information about a given phenomenon is obtained through different types of acquisition techniques resulting in datasets with complementary information but essentially of different types, or multiset data where the datasets are all of the same type but acquired from different subjects, at different time points, or under different conditions. Joint analysis of such data—its fusion—promises a more comprehensive and informative view of…

Information Warfare

December 10, 2018 @ 6:00 pm
Unimelb – Doug McDonell Building, Level 8, Doug McDonell Building, The University of Melbourne Melbourne 3010 Australia + Google Map

Information warfare is a core part of the rapidly emerging area of cyberwarfare. Australia like many other countries is looking to develop capabilities in this area and last year a new Information Warfare Division was created within the Australian Defence Force. This talk will introduce information warfare and related aspects of online public diplomacy and examine two case studies, the 2010 Gaza Flotilla incident and the Russian interference in the last US presidential elections. As Australia seeks to engage with…
