Redesigning Files to Embed Concise Provenance Metadata
Data provenance in cloud storage is a solution to enable users to regain control and knowledge over their own data. Existing approach to tracking data provenance fails to address the problem completely as the provenance data is stored separately from the data, while the vendor still has complete control over the provenance logs. The research aim is to redesign files to embed concise provenance metadata, assuring correctness and completeness in provenance data.

JuryRoom: How do we achieve consensus
JuryRoom is a system developed at Waikato, in collaboration with the University of Maryland, that provides a platform for individuals to conduct discussions on a given topic and we observe whether, at the end of the discussion, consensus is achieved on a viewpoint about said topic. It is of interest to see if we can perform an analysis that can characterize discussions that seek agreement and identify properties that distinguish between those that succeed or fail at reaching consensus. The system may also support cross-culture and interlingual studies. This project seeks to use Natural Language Processing, computational linguistics and machine learning techniques to identify certain sentence structures or keywords that can be distinctly identified to affect a person into reaching consensus. We ultimately aim to provide the JuryRoom platform with an analytical backend that can be used by researchers in the future to perform similar analyses on the discussion data.
