Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics Research Cluster

The Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics (AIDA) Research Cluster carries out and promotes high-quality research in information processing, machine learning, computational intelligence, and information security and privacy. 

Our team solves problems of vital importance to communication networks, critical infrastructure protection, multimedia systems, bioinformatics, intelligent machines and digital forensics.


Major research areas

Information processing

Smart information sensing and processing

Our research includes compressed sensing, statistical signal and image processing, statistical data analysis, blind estimation, and time-frequency analysis.

Data mining

Data mining research includes classification, regression and clustering from various perspectives: development of new robust and application-tailored methods, knowledge discovery, casual discovery and reliability.

Computational intelligence

Aggregation operators and fuzzy systems

We research various means, triangular norms and conforms, fuzzy measures and integrals, intuitionistic and interval-valued aggregation, fuzzy implications and applications in image processing and regression.

Numerical optimisation

Our research covers global optimisation methods, branch-and-bound techniques, integer programming, and their applications.
