Brunel Creative is a gateway to our work in the use of digital technology across the arts, sciences and engineering.
Social, economic and strategic effects of AI and associated technologies. Impact of AI and related technologies on societies, organisations and individuals.
Promoting all sides of empirical and formal investigations of software artefacts – code, formal models and human aspects.
Developing and applying novel methodologies for computational modelling, simulation and analysis of biological systems
Our group works with partners in the Global South to lead and promote interdisciplinary research in the field of computer science and social good. We focus on investigating and developing new ways and innovative technologies to address challenging socio-economic problems.
Multidisciplinary research at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (machine learning), serious and fun gaming, and cognitive modelling to simulate a physical world either as a virtual, augmented or mixed reality environment.
Focusing on international digital economy research capability in areas including cyber security, trust, identity and privacy challenges, and big data analytics.
Investigating ways in which humans and computers can interact through intuitive interface design, understanding of human factors and multimedia.
Brings together digital science and technology innovation and advancement, aligned with the Grand Challenges of the UK’s Industrial Strategy, thereby enhancing the global citizen’s quality of life.
Concerned with effective analysis of data involving artificial intelligence, dynamic systems, image and signal processing, optimisation, pattern recognition, statistics and visualisation.
