Computational Intelligence Group
The RPLOT program provides an informative way of analysing 15N relaxation data
This group brings together interdisciplinary researchers investigating the interface between computer science and the domains of bioscience and cognition. In terms of applying computation to other domains, we have experts in investigating the modelling of gene expression and modelling of human attention, emotions and reasoning. From the perspective of applying biological metaphors to computation, we research new computational methods such as genetic algorithms and swarm intelligence.
The group also develops novel techniques for data mining, visualization and simulation. These use the results of interdisciplinary research to find solutions for computationally expensive problems. The methods we develop are also applied to the bioscience and cognitive domains to model systems and to explore the data within them.
