Dr Vassilis Cutsuridis - Programme Leader
Dr Vassilis Cutsuridis is an expert at the interface between AI and Neuroscience. He is broadly interested in reverse engineering how the brain and mind work in order to understand the neural circuits and systems that give rise to mental experience and to extract the neural algorithms for the design and development of more efficient intelligent methods and systems for complex data analysis. After a 10 years in the software industry, he returned to academia in 2006 to hold research and teaching positions in Europe, UK, US, and China.Academic Staff List Make an Enquiry

How You Study
Research Areas and Topics
Recent students have tackled business process reengineering, hybrid information systems management, computer games engines, and using bio-inspired neural networks to prevent collisions with pedestrians. Current students are looking at topics including automated analysis of the game play in video games, development of a low-cost machine vision system for automatic identification of potato blemishes, electronic portfolio support in higher education, and text mining in health-related applications.
Example Research Areas:
- Robotics and Autonomous Systems
- Device and System Design
- Computer Vision and Image/Video Analysis
- Medical Image Analysis
- Data Analytics
- Social Computing
- Games and Serious Games Applications
There is a range of equipment for loan, including Raspberry Pi devices, smartphones, robots, and virtual reality equipment such as HTC Vive and Oculus Quest. Researchers in the School of Computer Science include Marc Hanheide, Professor of Intelligent Robotics and Interactive Systems, and Nigel Allinson MBE, Distinguished Professor of Image Engineering, who has been supported with a £3.3 million grant from the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council for advances in medical imaging.
