Secure Connected Intelligence – AI and the Data Revolution

Secure Connected Intelligence – AI and the Data Revolution

Researchers at Queen’s are on a mission to make the changing global digital space both safer and faster. Our world leading teams in cyberspace resilience and networks and connectivity are breaking new ground in the digital sphere, as our teams in geographical information science are doing in the physical.

Novel computer systems and changing computing paradigms require agile and cutting age research which can be translated quickly and effectively into real world practice. Using data fusing enabling technologies will assist in socio economic development, but will also act as a positive driver for the health of populations in the future, and for their safety and security.

Working within and across disciplines, we are excited by the prospect of understanding and pursuing digital breakthroughs which can act as a catalyst for new and creative cultural practices.
