We have an international reputation for the outstanding quality of our research which is grouped into two themes: artificial intelligence and communications systems. In the most recent UK Research Excellence Framework, more than two-thirds of our computer science research was classed as 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent' (REF 2014).
Our research is organised around two main themes: artificial intelligence (including intelligent systems, brain-computer interfaces, artificial intelligence for decision making, natural language and information processing, and robotics) and communications (for example, future networks and optoelectronics).
It is complemented by our research centres (Centre for Computational Finance and Economics Agents, Computational Intelligence Centre, and the interdiscplinary Institute for Analytics and Data Science) and supported by our extensive range of research laboratories and facilities.
From the impact of big data on personal privacy to using crowd sourcing for evidence of human rights abuses, our research is interdisciplinary and has the potential to improve lives across the globe.
