Developing fundamental theoretical and practical solutions to real world problems


Inventing and exploiting computational intelligence techniques to address organisational issues

The Centre for Computational Intelligence (CCI) exists to develop fundamental theoretical and practical solutions to real world problems using a variety of computational intelligence paradigms.

This centre produces high quality, industrially relevant research into intelligent systems. This provides theoretically sound solutions to real world, decision making and prediction problems.

With an established international reputation, its work focuses on the use of fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks, evolutionary computing, mobile robotics and biomedical informatics. CCI offers a number of benefits to the data management, defence, health, logistics, security and video gaming sectors.


  • To be one of the leading national and international sources of expertise on fuzzy logic, data mining and biomedical informatics
  • To play a key role in enabling the University to develop an international reputation for leading edge computational intelligence research


The Centre has been in existence since 1995. Throughout these years it has had a consistent strategy of only carrying out strong fundamental research with quality publications, knowledge transfer and industrial relevance being our primary purpose. We have grown to a substantial size with a large core of staff and PhD students working in neural computing, fuzzy logic and evolutionary computing.

Areas of expertise

CCI covers a diverse range of computational intelligence areas including:

  • Bespoke embedded hardware and software solutions
  • Crowd models and simulations
