Mobile Cognitive Systems (MCS) Research group
Mobile Cognitive Systems Research Group is to combines the efforts of DMU Faculty of Technology staff in two areas that are currently enjoying exciting technological advances and the support of funding bodies, namely Mobile Computing and Cognitive Systems. These two areas are identified as growth areas of computing in the next 5-15 years with the increased use of mobile phones, intelligent interfaces, and social media in what is becoming the “internet of things”.
The group objectives are therefore to:
- Develop base technologies for mobile applications with cognitive (human-like) intelligence,
- Develop novel tools and methods for mobile devices and networks (e.g., optimisation of mobile computing codes),
- Innovative solutions and applications in other fields, e.g., healthcare, elearning, big data analytics, etc., and
- Distinguish itself by deploying innovative agent technologies.
Mobile and Cognitive Systems are multi-disciplinary and have many controversial ethical issues from data storage to psychological and social effects. Thus MCS research group members always seek active collaboration with scholars in relevant areas of research such as ethics and morality, cognitive psychology, sociology, linguistics, philosophy and neuroscience.
There are three major themes running in the research group. Within each theme there are several areas of expertis.
Data and Text Mining
Big Data and Data/Knowledge Management
Agents-based Knowledge Engineering
Ad hoc Networks
Mobile Devices and Mobile Applications
Information Security and Immune-based Systems
Emotions Modeling and Recognition
