Machine learning and artificial intelligence

Machine learning describes a collection of statistical and computational techniques for identifying patterns within data. More generally, other artificial intelligence techniques such as evolutionary algorithms, neural networks, and deep learning play an important role in identifying large scale networks or bioinformatics problems with small data.

Our expertise

  • Advanced machine learning
  • Attractor reconstruction methods for physiological data combined with machine learning
  • Bayesian machine learning
  • Ensemble learning and drop-out learning
  • Evolutionary multi-objective machine learning
  • Evolutionary optimisation
  • Neural networks and deep learning
  • Secure machine learning
  • The identification of classifiers/predictors of clinical outcomes.
