Artificial Intelligence

image of globe, with computer code patterns of countriesArtificial Intelligence (AI) is the design and use of computer systems to understand and generate human-level decision making. These systems represent, reason with, and learn from, different descriptions of knowledge and uncertainty. It is also the design and use of such computer systems, and their associated algorithms and architectures, to solve practical problems in different domains. AI research at Birmingham is organised into four themes:

 

Theme Lead

Professor Ata Kaban

Professor Ata Kaban

School of Computer Science

Ata Kaban is Professor in Computer Science working in statistical machine learning and data mining in high dimensional settings. The two major problems of her focus are the `curse of dimensionality’ and the gap between theory and practice.

 Ata Kaban is also an EPSRC Fellow (Jan 2017- Jan 2022) with the project “FORGING: Fortuitous Geometries and Compressed Learning”, and ...
