Research and Development Expertise
"The aim of our research is to extend the range of tasks that computers can usefully perform"Research in computing is interested in expanding the range of tasks computers, networks and devices can usefully perform. This is done by making new use of existing technology and by developing new technology when nothing appropriate exists.
For example, our computational intelligence research group is interested in improving computers' ability to learn from experience, to make educated guesses, and to make predictions about things that have not yet happened. Our care technology group is looking for ways to allow computers to monitor and control the homes of the elderly or frail to allow them to stay independent for longer.
We carry out research for companies, governement bodies and charities. Much of our research is in the public domain and available for use under licence. We also carry out bespoke research for individual clients, but this work obviously remains private. Some of the application areas for our research are listed below.
