Innovative Computing Group @ Durham University
The Innovating Computing
Group (ICG) had been one of the two research groups of the School
of Engineering and Computing Sciences at the University of Durham
until 2021, when, with the division of the School into two
independent departments, a new group structure was
introduced for Computer Science.
ICG comprised 20 staff members and 45 PhD students with wide-spanning research interests and overlapping strengths in artificial intelligence, machine learning (deep and shallow), data analytics, and novel applied research. ICG established strong industry connections (e.g., Microsoft, NVidia, Boots, P&G, Dyson) and generated spin-offs (e.g. Intogral). It received funding from industry, RCUK, and others (e.g. IOC). Its main research areas included image processing, data science, natural language processing, adaptive technologies, human-centred computing, health informatics, software engineering, software design, and high-performance and scientific computing.
I was the Head of the
ICG leading its successful submission to the UK REF2014.
