The group belongs to the Faculty of Technology, Art and Design and conducts research activities in the following areas:
- Machine learning: supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning.
- Evolutionary computation, bio-inspired computation.
- Complex systems, multi-agent systems, game theory, statistics.
- Deep learning, recurrent neural networks, reservoir computing, neuro-evolution.
- Robotics and artificial Life.
We apply AI methods to a variety of disciplines, such as healthcare and neuroscience, design and art, Internet of Things, computer vision and speech processing, imaging and 3D data, education and learning, climate, economy and finance.
