Computational methods based on real intelligence
- Artificial Intelligence techniques borrow from various aspects of our understanding of how human intelligence works in order to tackle computing problems which, because of complexity or scale, are very difficult to solve by conventional programming techniques. Advances in recent years have come through the availability of greater computing power, the development of new AI techniques, and the application of ideas to new problem areas. AI technologies are strongly addressed within the School.
- Machine learning is at the heart of much of our research. Instead of working out rules to tell a computer what to do in every possible situation, it is presented with a large number of examples that it learns from.
MAIN RESEARCH AREAS
- Machine learning is applied to: video and image processing, for example for person re-identification or analysis of medical images; analysis of other data including medical; cognitive neuroscience and natural language and speech processing.
- We work on improving core AI methods, for example: fair and explainable AI; clustering algorithms; scheduling algorithms.
- In conjunction with the Computing Systems Research Theme we investigate high performance computing techniques for training and inference in machine learning.
