Strategic Aim: Developing fundamental theory and applications relating to the generation, distribution, analysis and use of information in engineering and biological systems.
The Information Engineering Division’s research focuses on the generation, distribution, analysis and use of information in engineering systems. As such, it straddles the boundary between traditional Computer Science and Engineering Departments. The Head of Division is Professor Bill Byrne.
The Division is organised into four main research Groups.
The Control Group carries out research in the theory and practice of control engineering with applications including automotive and aerospace control.
The Machine Intelligence Laboratory leads research in the areas of speech recognition systems, computer vision, bio-robotics and medical imaging.
The Signal Processing and Communications Group performs a wide range of signal and image processing projects with diverse application areas.
The Computational and Biological Learning Group uses engineering approaches to understand the brain and to develop artificial learning systems.
