Professor Xue Li, from the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at UQ, was selected as one of “the top 50 most powerful people in Australia” on Big Data by the AFR – the Power Issue 2015.
Gathering extremely large amounts of data that can be analysed is becoming a powerful force in society; identifying patterns and trends, providing insights into societal behaviour, and predicting outcomes. This was evident when a team led by Dr Xue Li used an algorithm to analyse more than 14,922 tweets and used word cloud associations to accurately predict the outcome of the 2014 Queensland election.
Professor Xue Li’s major areas of research interests and expertise include: Data Mining, Social Computing, Database Systems, and Intelligent Web Information Systems.
