- Natural computing is the study of computational systems that borrow ideas from a large variety of natural systems such as Darwinian evolution, the immune systems of vertebrates, the nervous system, or the foraging behaviour of ants. Birmingham Fellow Dr Christine Zarges' research in this field is in particular concerned with the theoretical analysis of artificial immune systems and evolutionary algorithms used for optimisation.
- Of the estimated 150,000 people annually in the UK who have a stroke, a significant number will suffer Apraxia or Action Disorganisation Syndrome (AADS). This impairs their ability to complete simple daily tasks, like making a cup of tea, and obstructs independent living. In the EU CogWatch project, featured in The Guardian, EECE staff work with psychologists to develop technology to retrain patients to overcome this problem.
