The AI research group is committed to the investigation and development of new modelling, optimisation and decision support technologies, which bridge the gap between the theory and practice of optimisation.
The work of the group covers the areas of quantum computing, discrete mathematics, space science, theory of elasticity, probability theory, statistics and reliability. The group has a very high international profile and collaborates with many universities worldwide.
The mission of the Electronics, Communications and Information Systems Engineering Research Groupis to advance awareness and understanding of telecommunications engineering through addressing global research challenges, transferring knowledge and developing world-wide strategic partnerships.
The strategic aim of the group is building on research in Power Electronics, Power Systems, Intelligent systems, and Communications systems to develop a systems view of energy generation, transmission, distribution, and consumption, particularly seeking to develop SMART Grid technology. The SMART grid theme brings together a number of different disciplines with the objective of increasing system efficiencies whilst also encouraging market forces to participate.
The Future Ubiquitous Networks (FUN) Research Group has an international reputation in networking research in part cular integrated communications architectural design, radio resource management, protocol design, network security, middleware design and embedded systems. A high proportion of our research is conducted in collaboration with indus ry and other EU universities and research institutes.
The NetPEn (Networks and Performance Engineering) Research Group conducts advanced research towards the creation of novel analytic techniques and related algorithms for the performance modelling, evaluation and engineering of convergent multi-service networks of diverse technology, such as IP, ATM, MPLS, WLAN, Optical Networks, GSM, GPRS, UMTS & 4G Mobile Systems and the Next and Future Generation Internets (NGI & FGI).
The group has over 20 years' research experience in the areas of antennas, propagation model, Radio Frequency design and electromagnetic computational techniques. The group has an impressively strong industry and academic track record, being well known through novel patent inventions and original research articles that are noticeable through profiles of the individual group members.
Visual Computing Research Group is involved in the development of Computer Vision Systems for processing multi wavelengths satellite images, Medical Engineering (Confocal Corneal Imaging Analysis, PET Tumour Analysis, Mammography, and Intelligent Analysis of EEG/ECG Signals) and General Imaging and Machine Learning (3D facial representation, Arabic OCR, Watermarking, data mining, etc).
