ADvanced hEalth intelligence and brain-insPired Technologies (ADEPT)

The research group use brain technologies that can contribute to a better health, while through the process the group is able to develop new and advanced brain-inspired technologies.

Our research is directly connected to industrial applications and aims to develop new technologies contributing to better health. 

At the same time, based on that knowledge, we would like to create new technologies within the RRI requirements.

We use machine learning and artificial intelligence methods to analyse our data. 

Hopefully, the results of our research will contribute to development of innovative methods for the future advanced robotics and AI-technologies.

Our research focus with respect to brain activities is categorized into two main activities, which further is divided into three subgroups: 

Brain Health:

Brain-Inspired technologies:

  • More about the research group

    ADEPT is a cross-disciplinary research group consisting of members from the Faculty of Technology, Art and Design, The Faculty of Health Sciences, The Work Research Institute and The Simula Garage. In addition, the group has members from national and international companies and institutions. 

    We will expand our ongoing research projects through the ADEPT partnership at national and international levels to build multiple innovative projects involving PhD and master’s programmes at Faculty Technology, Art and Design, Faculty of Health Sciences, Work Research institute and The Simula Garage, and, in addition, national and international industrial and academic partners. 

    We offer projects to students at Bsc, MSc and PhD levels. Currently, ADEPT researchers are supervising several students.
