Project Description

Currently a massive amount of datasets in relation to medicine and healthcare are available. There is an increasing demand for effective and efficient methods to discover new knowledge and derive new insights into the data.

This research project aims to develop novel methods and algorithms for information mining from data resources available in public (e.g. UK healthcare data, national and local environmental data, among many others) or privately (e.g. accessible for use through our established research collaborations). The final goal is to make contribution to public interest (e.g. improvement of healthcare, rehabilitation, policy making) through research disseminations (academic research reports and publications, algorithms and software, patents, etc.)
