Research within the School is organised into research themes combining strengths by working together on major projects, in many cases in collaboration with key technology companies.
The research clusters combine strengths by working together on major projects, in many cases in collaboration with key technology companies.
HPDC has been successful in attracting substantial DTI funding for projects (around £3-4m), which have produced exemplary demonstrations of Grid technology in real applications. ECIT brings together internationally recognised research groups specialising in key areas of advanced digital and communications technology.
SIVS carries out research in intelligent video surveillance, 3D medical imaging and speech processing. This cluster has also attracted several million pounds in funding for both fundamental and applied speech, image and video applications within the framework of the ECIT institute, a major new cross-disciplinary development in conjunction with Electronic Engineering.
CSIT brings together research specialists in complementary fields such as data security, network security systems, wireless-enabled security systems, and intelligent surveillance systems, and serves as the national point of reference for knowledge transfer in these areas. As well as collaborating to widen perspectives in the other clusters, KDE has used external funding to produce substantial research outputs and technology transfer in the areas of adaptability, optimisation, reasoning under uncertainty, data mining, and knowledge integration.
