Intelligent systems are concerned with the theories and techniques for building computer systems which exhibit some form of intelligent behaviour. The area has had an active and exciting history and is now a relatively mature area of computer science.
Many of the research discoveries have reached the point of industrial application and products, and many companies have made and saved millions of dollars by exploiting the research results in this area. However, many challenging research problems remain. The two main focus areas of the group currently are intelligent agents and evolutionary programming.
There is also work in linear logic and associated areas. Research topics include agent learning, planning, complex reasoning, agent oriented software engineering, open systems, logics, evolutionary multi-objective optimisation, evolutionary algorithms, data and web mining and neural and evolutionary approaches to object recognition.
