Computing is a critical part of every modern organisation. From the hardware used to network across the globe, to the software and applications that make complex tasks more simple, the modern world runs on computing power. It's vital that the processes, systems, and digital infrastructure we rely on is as efficient as possible.
And with our reliance on computers only increasing, it's important for organisations and individuals to ensure their assets – whether they're digital themselves, or accessible digitally – are properly protected. Cyber attacks are increasingly used to leak sensitive information, to commit crime, and in warfare – so investigating cyber security is more crucial than ever.
We're also exploring how computational paradigms and algorithms can be used to make a positive difference in a variety of human-machine systems – and our research in computational intelligence is already making an impact in areas such as robot-enhanced therapy, limb motion recognition, and autism spectrum disorders intervention.
There's also a greater demand for organisations to be more productive, efficient and connected, and expertise in information systems (IS) is needed to support and develop the strategic, managerial and operational activities that can help a business grow.
Through our Computing – and our Health Informatics research – we're exploring each aspect, and developing methods of implementing information systems that can positively impact organisations, while at the same time, ensuring their cyber security.
