The next generation of electronic technology will be smaller, faster and smarter than ever before. Our research into intelligent systems and robotics is driving this revolution.
The strategic view of the group is to balance adventure with continuity in interdisciplinary research in order to make tangible impact.
Much of our research links engineering with nature. Learning from biological processes, the group’s research is involved in the development of novel biologically-inspired electronic, computational and robotic systems and programs, endowed with capabilities such as adaptation, evolution, growth, healing, replication and learning.
These technical developments are applied to a variety of real-world applications areas, including VLSI technology design and fabrication, autonomous intelligent robots, novel computational structures, and smart energy conversion.
