Inactive Research Projects

Principal Investigator: Hal Duame
Spearheading the development of new technology that will aid translators - providing automatic interpretation that is displayed for the translator and is particularly valuable for translating nuanced content.
Principal Investigator: Jennifer J. Preece
Engaging members of low-income and minority communities in environmental projects that are meaningful to their lives and can promote informal STEM learning. The researchers will look at how these projects impact participants and identify the key factors that influence the development of such community projects.
Principal Investigator: Katie Shilton
Delving into why app developers have a low rate of prioritizing user data protection by looking at how developers define privacy and security, what would encourage them to prioritize data protection, and how can development tools encourage developers to implement more security features during design.
Principal Investigator: Niklas Elmqvist
Proposing a comprehensive new approach called ubiquitous analytics (ubilytics) for harnessing ever-present digital devices into unified environments for anywhere analysis and sensemaking of data. Looking at applications for scientific discovery, classroom learning, and police investigation.
Principal Investigator: Katie Shilton
Looking at mobile and wearable app development to discover factors that encourage discussion and action on ethical challenges amongst developers. Findings will be incorporated into curriculum for students in mobile app courses, and the impact on ethics education will be evaluated.
Principal Investigator: Katie Shilton
Examining how computer security researchers navigate ethical dilemmas when using big data and shared network resources to expose vulnerabilities - from ethical self-regulation to the sharing of ethics expectations in research communities.
Principal Investigator: Douglas W. Oard

Funder: Other
Exploring highly innovative technologies to automatically analyze a wide range of speech, text, and document data in multiple languages.
Principal Investigator: Keith Marzullo
Developing design guidelines for wearable technology that will aid people who need assistance with regulating emotions in the workplace and everyday life. The project is also exploring the impact of breathing interventions in real-world settings that were successful in the laboratory.
Principal Investigator: Paul T. Jaeger, Ana Ndumu
The University of Maryland iSchool is seeking $101,593 to host the Counted In: National Forum on Libraries, Census 2020, and New Americans, a one-day pre-conference event on promoting census participation among immigrants.
Online communities, from question and answer sites to general-purpose discussion forums, are increasingly working to solve hard problems together, often through a process of open sharing and discussion of ideas and information.
Principal Investigator: Susan Winter
The project aims to find out how local communities can benefit from the advances in big data and data analytic technologies and how such technologies can create an innovation-supporting environment to stimulate economic growth in recovering communities.
Principal Investigator: Susan Winter
Dr. Susan Winter and Andrew Fellows will lead the effort to bring advanced data analytics and business intelligence services to public libraries in Prince George’s County.
Principal Investigator: Richard Marciano
UMD held a workshop to create the building blocks of a Master's level educational curriculum to educate the next generation of librarians and archivists in the computational treatments of collections.
Principal Investigator: Amanda Lazar
This is funding to support a Doctoral Consortium (workshop) of approximately 15 promising graduate students (up to 10 from the United States, who will be funded by this award), along with about 5 distinguished research faculty.
Principal Investigator: Douglas W. Oard, Katie Shilton
Today's search engines are designed principally to help people find what they want to see. Paradoxically, the fact that search engines do this well means that there are many collections that can't be searched.
