Dr. Stephen Roddy is an Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Research Fellow investigating Auditory Display for Large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) Networks, and AI-driven Human-computer Interaction (HCI) solutions for Smart City data at The CONNECT Centre, Trinity College Dublin. Stephen holds a Ph.D. from Trinity College Dublin in Auditory Display, an HCI discipline concerned with the use of audio to represent data and display information. His research explores novel strategies for representing, understanding, leveraging and interacting with complex data. Stephen adopts an empirical approach to multidisciplinary research, undertaking investigations in both Computer Science and the Arts. His research spans HCI, IoT & Smart Cities, applications of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) in the arts, Computational Creativity and Generative Music Systems, Data Analytics, Auditory Display and Sonification. His work has been widely disseminated through peer-reviewed journal publications, book chapters, and conferences.
Stephen also develops interactive digital media systems for the creative and cultural industries. This involves the creation of augmented/mixed reality experiences, generative and live music performance/composition systems,
interactive installations and musical compositions. These systems are developed in collaboration with artists, dancers, choreographers and musicians. His work in this field has been described as “raw, rhythmic, primal yet playful” and “searingly powerful and a sheer joy to behold”. Recent projects debuted at the Helicotrema Recorded Audio Festival in Venice, the Contemporary Music Centre’s Salon Series at the National Concert Hall of Ireland and Dublin Dance Festival's Embodied at the GPO and the Sonorities Contemporary Music Festival.
