Engineered and Artificial Systems

Centre of Excellence in Computational Complex Systems Research


Modern technology research is building novel artificial systems. In nanotechnology this emphasises the need to understand the fundamental behaviour of materials (solid, soft or biological) and devices, which show intrinsic complex phenomena such as pattern formation, self-organisation and self-assembly. These nanoscale systems are well-suited for computational modelling studies, which form the basis for applying them in nanoscale bioinformatics, biomedical analysis and in imaging systems. In the area of information technology, we develop computational models of cognitive functions, such as learning and perception, which are central issues in many research topics throughout the CoE. We apply the results in computer vision and object recognition, and in robotics to study task-driven modelling of cognitive functions from computational neuroscience perspective.
