Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Discovery

The Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Discovery laboratories focuses on issues relating to the discovery, modelling, interpretation and use of information and knowledge. While the emphasis is on applied research and the group strives to develop solutions to real-world data-rich problems, the laboratory is also interested in fundamental technologies, particularly in artificial intelligence and information theory.

In terms of application domain, the laboratory particularly (but not exclusively) applies it work to two major domains:

Our experience has shown that there are a number of commonalities between these two domains and the technology developed for one is often transferrable to the other. Moreover, both domains are extremely challenging which we find attractive.

Technically, we have six overlapping research programs. These are (in alphabetical order):

Some of our work, particularly that applied to health and medical systems, is covered by Flinders strategic emphasis on Medical Devices and Technologies (FMDAT). This research aggregation represents a substantial strategic research investment for Flinders University and includes over 70 academics and a similar number of postgraduate research students.
