Research areas

Our vision is to undertake fundamental research that allows us to address real-world challenges and is organised into four priority areas which reflect emerging, critical trends.

Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

Artificial intelligence and data analytics

Our research explores how computers can effectively perform tasks previously only possible for humans, and potential solutions to ambitious, far-reaching challenges.

Cybersecurity and privacy

Our research focuses on the fusion of data science/analytics and AI methods and explores what our approach to human and technical cyber security can tell us about cyber risk, threat intelligence, attack detection and situational awareness.

Human-centred computing

Our research explores how computers can computers better support our daily lives, and how emerging systems might impact on individuals, communities and society at large.

Computer vision

Visual computing

Our research looks at the images which are captured everyday and how computers can analyse them effectively and extract the meaning that will add value and make a difference.
