Intelligent Systems Research Group

The Intelligent Systems Research Group (ISRG) undertakes internationally leading research in carefully chosen areas based on the group expertise in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) systems. Specifically, the group has expertise in AI and ML for Video Surveillance, digital media Forensics and Security Imaging, stock market manipulations and swarm theory.

The group objectives are three-fold: Firstly, to focus on developing world-leading algorithms and applications for biometric data, digital media (video and images), data security and swarm application problems. Secondly, to integrate and coordinate our capabilities to deliver novel, robust computer and electronic security systems that can operate in real time, and thirdly to work alongside industry to solve real world problems for maximum impact.

Our group members have been investigators on projects funded by EPSRC, Innovate UK, Qatar QNRF, KSA NPST, alongside several UK companies.
