Scientific Research at DAI
Research activities at DAI are chiefly focused on the the areas of computer graphics and computer vision, artificial intelligence, computational logic, theory of programming, and bioinformatics. Researchers collaborate within informal working groups focused on more specific topics.
Computer Graphics and Vision
Two groups at DAI work on graphics and vision problems:
- Computer graphics – computer animation, navigation and cooperation in virtual environments, methods of volumetric graphics.
- Computer vision – face recognition and tracking, medical applications of computer graphics and computer vision.
Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science
Research in artificial intelligence and cognitive science has a broad scope and a long history, reflected by the number and diversity of working groups:
- Knowledge Representation – logic-based theory of knowledge representation, non-monotonic reasoning, logic programming (especially answer set programming), description logics, ontologies, semantic web; reasoning under uncertainty; logical aspects of multi-agent systems.
- Artificial Neural Networks and Cognitive Science – computational modelling of cognitive processes, experimental research based on EEG measurement, brain-computer interface (BCI).
- Complex dynamic networks – models of evolving complex networks and modelling of real situations with complex networks.
- Fuzzy systems
- Robotics and Evolutionary Computing
Theory of Programming
- Theory of programming. Declarative programming, code verification, code transformation techniques, rewriting systems and constraint systems. Theory od concurrent processing, formal models and their applications on system specification, verification and information security.
- Computational Biology. Applications of algorithmic, probabilistic modeling, and machine learning techniques to the molecular biology problems, especially to the analysis of DNA sequences. Collaboration with biology researchers on common projects.
