Our aim is to create a vibrant, enthusiastic and forward-thinking community, where world-leading academics and talented students work closely together to research world-leading inventions.
Current research within the Institute focuses on:
The four pillars of research within this area are:
This research area encompasses the intelligent control of soft and physical systems by way of sensing, perceiving, and predicting future events and reacting to the data.
The specific research areas include:
Reference number: 2019/IDT/LUL
One of the key challenges is how to apply advanced machine learning techniques to the sensed multi-modal data through various types of IoTs to understand the behaviours of ‘human-human’, ‘human-machine’, and ‘machine-machine’ interactions. The project expects to make strides towards understanding and applying the AI technology to the real-world problem by investigating machine and deep learning algorithms on realistic and consumer based IoT scenarios to model the used systems with reliability, accuracy, effectiveness, scalability, transferability and robustness.
Ideal candidates will have the chance to conduct innovative research with leading researchers in the following sub-areas in a loop:
