Information Analysis of Multi-channel Data with Measure Theory
Getting information from high dimension and multi-channel data is a big challenge for clustering and pattern recognition problem. In order to process multi-channel data such as multi-channel electromyography (EMG), feature extraction and classification process are needed. Different absolute mean value (DAMV), different absolute standard deviation value (DASDV), mean absolute value (MAV), and Zero crossing (ZC) methodology were used to get feature extraction. For classification, neural network (CNN) and other heuristic approach were applied. However, to get better performance hybrid structure with analytic approach is required. Euclidian or Manhattan distance and heuristic method showed effective, and design of similarity measure with two characteristics was effective in previous research. Research output on multi-channel data can be applied to more complex system such as security business including fingerprint and iris identification, and image processing enhancement, and the others recently. In a broad range of application areas including engineering and business, data is being collected at unprecedented quantity. Program is desired to undertake further investigations on the following research topics:
- Analysis of uncertain data Data uncertainty analysis needs mathematical backgrounds such as real number analysis, integration, statistics and related topic. Based on these fundamentals, we aim to provide a general result of data analysis methodology by means of similarity measures and entropy design.
- Multi-channel data analysis with measure theory, and retrieve characteristics form data sets. It is evident that the size and the numbers of experimental data sets available are increasing exponentially as the technology advances. In order to solve classification and clustering problems, similarity measures and data processing techniques are needed.
- Design of similarity measure and application to data. Finally, similarity measure and analyzing identifying measure is verified by applying to multi-channel data or artificial data.
Research progress and outcomes will be accomplished through providing academic opportunity such as regular seminar, paper submission to conference/journal, and external collaboration.

The PhD studentship is available for three years subject to satisfactory progress by the student. The award covers tuition fees for three years (currently equivalent to RMB 80,000 per annum) and provides a monthly stipend of 3500 RMB as a contribution to living expenses. It also provides up to RMB 16,500 to allow participation at international conferences during the period of the award. It is a condition of the award that holders of XJTLU PhD scholarships carry out 300-500 hours of teaching assistance work per year.
The scholarship holder is expected to carry out the major part of his or her research at XJTLU in Suzhou, China. However, he or she is eligible for a research study visit to the University of Liverpool of up to three months, if this is required by the project.
