Teaching

Big Data Processing (Undergraduate)

Parallel computing, which implies the simultaneous execution of several processes for solving a single problem, is a mainstream subject with wide ranging implications for computer architecture, algorithms design and programming. The UK has been at the forefront of this technology through its involvement in the development of several innovative architectures. Queen Mary has been actively involved with Parallel Computing for more than a decade. In this module, you will be introduced to parallel computing and will gain first hand experience in relevant techniques. Laboratory work will be based on the MPI (Message Passing Interfaces) standard, running on a network of PCs in the teaching laboratory. The module should be of interest to Computer Scientists and those following joint programmes (eg CS/Maths, CS/Stats). It is also suitable for Chemistry and Engineering students and all those who are concerned with the application of high performance parallel computing for their particular field of study (eg Simulation of chemical Behaviour). The 12-week module involves two hours of timetabled lectures per week. Laboratory sessions are timetabled at two hours per week, normally spanning half the semester only. The module syllabus adopts a hands-on programming stance. In addition, it focuses on algorithms and architectures to familiarise you with messagepassing systems (MPI) as adopted by the industry.

The 12 week module involves 2 hours of timetabled lectures per week. Laboratory sessions are timetabled at 2 hours per week for 6 to 7 weeks only. The module syllabus adopts a hands-on programming stance. In addition it focuses on algorithms and architectures to familiarise students with message-passing systems ((MPI) as adopted by industry.

In this module, students will be introduced to parallel computing and will gain firsthand experience in relevant techniques.

Image Processing (Postgraduate/Undergraduate)

This course gives students an introduction to image processing. Areas covered include image representation, and image transforms, image enhancement using point and spatial operations, image filtering, image restoration, image compression and image segmentation.
