The members of the Intelligent and Distributed Systems Laboratory bring together multi-disciplinary research interests and substantial experiences in the fields of Computer Science and Informatics. The Laboratory aims to facilitate research endeavour into Intelligent and Distributed Systems and their applications.
The Laboratory has been recognised as an established Research Group within the University. Members have collaborative links with researchers at other national and international Universities. The underlying philosophy motivating the research of the Laboratory is to apply, besides traditional computing techniques, soft and other novel computing techniques to problems that have hitherto proved to be intractable, complex, highly nonlinear and difficult to solve.
One of the main inspirations for problem solving is based on natural or biological systems that tend to be decentralized, adaptive and environmentally aware, and as a result they have survivability, scalability and flexibility properties. In addition to work on traditional serial computers, the laboratory exploits methods of efficiency with parallel computing techniques and tools.
1. To further strengthen the research culture in the Business & Computer Science Deanery (BACS) by improving deanery, group, and individual research profiles
2. To feedback research into the current MSc in Computer Science programme
3. To further establish links with other research groups
4. To disseminate the group’s research and to extend regional, national and international links
5. Create further opportunities for scholarly staff development
