Research Centre Details

The intelligent systems research group was formed in academic year 1999/2000. In the academic year 2001/2002 the Intelligent Systems Group obtained the Centre status, 'Intelligent Systems Research Centre (ISRC)'. The ISRC has one overall aim to improve the quality of any products, services and security issues by incorporating Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning techniques to those products, services and security issues. The Centre has improved a wide variety of IT-based systems, devices and software in domestic, medical and industrial products. Some examples of the Centre's research activities are outlined below.

  • Bioinformatics research: Applications of AI and ML techniques to biology and medicine.
  • IT security research such as steganography, penetration testing, identity resolution, cryptography, identification of malicious website from non-malicious website, DoS attacks, IT security policy for small businesses, to name a few.
  • Applications of AI and ML techniques to big data research such as crowd-sourced data and geocomputation.
  • Data-mining and data warehousing, virtual learning environments (VLE), pattern recognition, natural language processing, cognitive science, biometrics and GIS database performance, parallel distributed systems, and agent based approach for building data warehousing.
  • Advanced web technology and its applications (ie e-commerce, CMS, semantic web, and web services, linguistic thesaurus).
  • Applications of AI and ML techniques to robotics.
  • Neuro Linguistic Programming and Natural Language Processing.
  • Applications of AI and ML techniques to assisted living.
  • Modelling of the hydrodynamical flow in the UK Rivers.
