Professor Leslie S. Smith: Home Page
I was head of the Computational Intelligence (was Natural/Neural Computing) Research Group in this Department until I took over as Head of Department in August 2008. My own primary interests are in early auditory processing, spike-based computing and the interconnection of real (cultured) neurons and electronics. I am chair of the UKCRC Grand Challenge GC-5 Architecture of the Brain and Mind.

In semester 1, 2011-12, I am teaching on
- CSC9A1, 1st semester Computing (rewritten this year!), entitled Introduction to Computing Science
CSC9YE Artificial Intelligence (which is an honours half-module, and also forms part of the Advanced Computing M.Sc. module ITNP4A.
I have also organised the Digital media (DGM901) course, which runs in the Spring Semester, jointly organised by this Department, English Studies, and Film, media and Journalism.
I am also involved with recruitment of students for our courses.
Yes, I am a person with other interests too. For example the Allan Jazz Five.
Here is a not very recent photo (March 2004). I have less hair and more wrinkles now.
