Intelligent Systems covers our research in intelligent computation, from algorithmic and fundamental computational techniques through to the implementation of those techniques in software and hardware in some very demanding environments.
One of the most challenging such environments is space, where radiation and high cost of failure make robust communications and reasoning systems essential. The Intelligent Systems group developed SpaceWire in collaboration with international spacecraft engineers. It is now is used by European Space Agency in Europe, RosCosmos in Russia, JAXA in Japan and NASA in the USA.
The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 – the UK-wide scheme to benchmark the strength of the work conducted by the higher education sector – found that our work in this area had created a considerable impact in the world outside of academia.
Intelligent Systems at the Computing comprises of the following areas of research (click any theme for more information):
