Computer Science and Informatics
The subject area is centred around the Computing and Informatics Research Centre and the five Research Groups that sit underneath it.
The Computer Science Subject Area provides researchers with an exciting environment for undertaking high-quality, interdisciplinary work. We provide expertise in advanced computer science topics to partners from both academia and industry. Members of the research team continue to apply computationally intelligent methods and techniques to real-world applications that can make a difference to lives and society.
Groups and Centres
The Computing and Informatics research activity is centred around the Computing and Informatics Research Centre. The Centre is comprised of four research groups:
- Interactive Systems (IS) – technologies for the cognitive and physical rehabilitation of users within the real world, and the promotion of their mental wellbeing.
- Computational Intelligence and Applications (CIA) – research on computationally intelligent methods and techniques to real-world applications targeting enhanced living and society.
- Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics (CNCR) – research into computational intelligence techniques that takes inspiration and learning from medicine and neuroscience.
- Network Infrastructures, Computing and Cyber Security (NICCS) – research into network technologies that underpin today's connected world with emphasis on middleware technologies, cloud-based systems, classical and quantum computing, and security and mobile systems.
