Learn more about the Applied Computing Research Group

The Group focuses on the application of computing to real-world problems through research and industrial projects. 

Applied Computing Research Group was established in 2010 by Prof. Dhiya Al-Jumeily, led by Prof. Abir Hussain and currently, is led by Dr Hoshang Kolivand. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented/Virtual Reality(AR/VR) are changing everything with the help of Data Science and Machine Learning. We are going to face a new world that AI will be the heart of, and AR/VR its eyes. The Group is a multidisciplinary team that develops novel approaches and applications in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Machine Learning and Visualisation. By developing these novel approaches and applications, the Group is able to facilitate personalisation and interpretation of data for specific user needs and to minimise the cognitive burden of information overload.

The Group develops software and hardware solutions for a variety of domains, from commercial and industrial solutions to experimental evaluation. The Applied Computing Research Group also enhances the Faculty’s knowledge of software engineering.

The Applied Computing Research Group attracts research funding from various sources in the UK and the European Union, including from industry, research councils and charitable foundations. For example, the Group received substantial grants from the British Council Research Grant, KTPs, Newton funds, International funds and the Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service.

The Group supports a wide range of research interests and the number of research students who have joined the Group’s vibrant community has grown steadily.

Research achievements

The group is active in several research project and organising conferences and events. In August 2017, the group organised the leading International Conference on Intelligent Computing in Liverpool for the first time. In 2018 organised 5th International Conference on Interactive Digital Media in Liverpool and several other conferences word-widely.

Another key success for the Applied Computing Research Group is the International Conference Series on Developments in eSystems Engineering DeSE, which the Group founded and has organised since 2007.

Although medical research is advancing at a rapid rate, governments and budgets are not. So there is a need for developing systems that can support health care and streamline the health care process. Researchers within the Group have published many papers within this area of research, in particular at the International Joint Conference on Neural Networks in Ireland and an International Conference on Intelligent Computing.
