The School of Computer Science (SoCS) has a rapidly growing international reputation for its research. We pursue a blend of fundamental, applied and interdisciplinary research and have particular strengths in computer vision, robotics and autonomous systems, and human computer interaction. Some recent achievements include: PRaVDA’s proton computed tomography being represented in “The 100 engineering ideas that changed the world” exhibition at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET); hosting the 7th European Conference on Mobile Robots (ECMR’15); and the award-winning Twitter garden (Gold Medal: Royal Horticultural Society, Chelsea Flower Show 2013)

Research Centres & Groups
L-CAS specialises in perception, learning, decision-making, control and interaction for autonomous systems, such as robots, and the integration of these capabilities in applications including personal robotics, healthcare, agri-food, security, and intelligent transportation.
Specialises in the capture, transmission, processing and understanding of image, video and other high-dimensional data. The Centre focuses on several application areas, including healthcare, scientific, security and environmental monitoring.
The intLab at the University of Lincoln establishes quality of life as its central concern, aiming to promote better living through, and with, technology. Research interests range from human-computer interaction, games and wellbeing, to sustainability, critical design, and fine art.
The MLearn Group will specialise in artificial and computational intelligence, focused on the design, development and study of machines that are able to reason, predict and adapt to changing environments, and assist humans in their activities and interactions.
