Biography of Speaker 
Professor Lee-Xing YANG (National Chengchi University, Taiwan)
My name is Lee-Xieng Yang and I am now an associate professor in the department of psychology of National Chengchi University in Taiwan. My research basically can be summarized as two parts. The first part includes cognitive psychology and mathematic psychology. Specifically, I am particularly interested in understanding how people learn categories and form concepts with laboratory experiments and mathematical models, such as neural network models and Bayesian models. In addition to the on-going studies on human categorization, recently, I also start to examine how to attenuate or eliminate the continued influence effect of misinformation (or fake news) in respect of the encoding and retrieval of memorized materials. The second part is more relevant to developing research methods for social media study. As most of the contents on social media are textual, developing the methods of text analysis becomes my main concern. Specifically, I put emphasis on applying the Dirichlet process in Bayesian methods to develop mixture models to summarize texts by representative topics. Recently, I also try to improve the sentiment analysis for texts via examining the possibility of using verbs together with adjectives to identify the sentiment of a text.

 

Dr. Sam HUTTON (SR Research Ltd)
Dr. Hutton studied Experimental Psychology at the University of Sussex, UK. His first encounter with an eye tracker was during his post-doctoral fellowship at Imperial College School of Medicine. He was based in the Neuro-ophthalmology unit for 6 years, and learned to use an ancient infrared eye tracking system to measure basic oculomotor function (prosaccades / antisaccades / smooth pursuit etc.) in patients with neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders. This experience led to a lifelong interest in oculomotor function and its relationship with cognition, and Dr. Hutton has been actively involved in eye tracking research in one way or another ever since. He has published over 50 papers on a wide range of topics - from the effects of nicotine on smooth pursuit, to the impact of implicit causes and consequences on gaze during spoken language processing. He currently works with SR Research, supporting EyeLink users across the world in a variety of ways. He takes a particular interest in issues involving eye tracking in clinical settings language research and pupillometry. He regularly teaches eye-tracking workshops on a wide range of topics, in which he tries to make sure that researchers don't make the same mistakes he did.

Break Out series will invite world-renowned poets to lead readers out of the perceived hopelessness. Poetry has the potentials to give expression to this complex global trauma through connecting elevated words to knocked-down worlds, to break us out from psychological isolation by liberating imagination, and most of all to heal the soul of humanity.

Abstract:

 

In recent years, the line between different artistic disciplines is increasingly blurred. New forms of cultural events and exhibitions - together with the emergence of communication technologies - have provided unique avenues for artists to explore unprecedented ways to broaden their artistic horizons and ways to communicate with audiences by adopting an interdisciplinary approach to their artistic practice. These artistic projects often involve multiple sensory modalities, engaging audiences with smell, touch, sound and visual through complex interactions. The emerging culture of artists employing various interdisciplinary and inter-sensory strategies has raised questions about how rapidly the meaning and function of art are changing. This talk will examine how four artists and researchers from the fields of visual arts, music, performance and curatorship have sought to open possibilities of integrating knowledge and methods from different disciplines to foster audience engagement and inter-sensory experience.

Why Inequalities in Film and Technology Matter

Ep3 13Mar Poster

 

Abstract:

 

We are all experiencing inequality in some way or other. The talk is going to look at how inequality can be studied in different ways across two disciplines, Cinema Studies and Applied Linguistics. Prof. Elmo Gonzaga from the Department of Cultural and Religious Studies will explain how the worldbuilding of the spy and sci-fi movie franchises, such as James Bond, Jason Bourne, Transformer, and Pacific Rim, contrasts Northeast Asian global cities with Southeast Asian megacities. While so-called “advanced and industrialised” cities like Tokyo, Shanghai, Seoul, and Hong Kong are extolled as affluent, orderly, and dynamic, “developing” or “emerging” cities like Bangkok, Jakarta, Manila, and Ho Chi Minh City (commonly known by its previous name Saigon) are debased as poor, guilty of crime, and violent.

 

Prof. Ron Darvin from the Department of English will discuss how digital inequality is not just about whether you have access to devices and connectivity. The types of devices you use, the contexts in which you use them, and your access to different cultural and social resources can shape different digital practices that are valued unequally. At the same time, the design and the algorithms of some platforms like Zoom and Instagram can also structure behaviour online and position users in unequal ways.
