Who’d have guessed that a concept sparked by the Covid-19 outbreak would gain this young man a significant award?
Arawinkumaar Selvakkumar, a Subang Jaya native, has been awarded by the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) School of Computer Science with the Best Paper Award.
The proposal, titled “Addressing the Challenges and Impact of Adversarial Machine Learning Attacks on Smart Healthcare Systems,” is intended to create a cyber-secure intelligent healthcare system.
The Covid-19 outbreak spurred Arawinkumaar’s interest in the healthcare industry and how it might adapt to satisfy the massive demand for its services.
The 23-year-old lad spent hours and hours observing tutorial videos and reading over 30 research papers on artificial intelligence and smart healthcare before developing a standard that can benefit the healthcare system.
Arawinkumaar, who graduated from QUT in Brisbane with a Master of Information Technology majoring in Cyber Security and Networks last month, said his paper highlighted the different types of adversarial attacks and their impact on smart healthcare systems, as well as proposing a model to examine how such attacks affect machine learning classifiers.
Arawinkumaar’s work, which focused on defensive measures and how hospitals may utilise intelligent healthcare systems to satisfy demand and address health-care crisis.
His work was presented at the 14th International Conference on Sensing Technology (ICST 2022), which took place from 17th to 19th January at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras in Chennai.
His university had also asked him to submit his research for publication in a journal and he plans to work in the IT industry in Australia.
Congratulations Arawinkumaar for winning a prestigious award and good luck for your future works!
