DATSCI is led by Prof Amir Hussain and is a group of inter-disciplinary scientists exploring, developing, and applying brain-inspired computational techniques, search and optimisation methodologies to a range of real-world data-driven problems.
Cognitive data science and optimisation
Our research focuses on real-world problems. It addresses data-centric problems of national and institutional importance, including the underlying ethical and privacy issues.
Techniques are derived from operational research, heuristic optimisation, machine learning and cognitive science. Application targets include financial technologies, industrial and cloud resource scheduling, health and social care, biological, environmental, sports and clinical sciences etc.
Security and networking
Part of our research explores data-driven security (including cyber-security), networking and systems.
We address associated challenges of safeguarding anonymity, and preserving privacy, trust and security.
