Staff and students at the School of Computing are involved in a range of research activites across a number of research groups.
Specific research interests at the School include the following:
The Applied Intelligence Research Centre (AIRC), a recognised R & D centre of the Dublin Institute of Technology, engages in researching the application of computational intelligence technologies to real world problems. The AIRC brings together the diverse research interests of its members which cover areas such as machine learning, robotics, computational linguistics, data and text mining and security. The AIG have projects funded by SFI, Enterprise Ireland and various internal DIT funding schemes, and have an active postgraduate student body.
PhD projects available in the AIRC are available here.
Experimental Gaming Group (EGG)
EGG is a cross faculty research group for digital games in the DIT. EGG has members from the School of Computing, Digital Media Centre and the Learning TechnologyGroup. Our aim is to develop courses and research on digital games, seriousgames, robots and toys. Some of our recent activities include the hosting ofthe 9th International Conference on Computer Games: AI, Animation, Mobile, Educational & Serious Games. We have received funding from Microsoft Ireland, the Irish Computer Society and Enterprise Ireland.
DIT Robotics Group
The DIT robotics group is a cross-faculty research group with members from theSchool of Computing, the School of Control Systems and Electrical Engineering, and the School of Manufacturing and Design Engineering. The group's research activities focus on human-robot interaction, audio and vision based perception, cognitive-systems and architectures, and the integration of robotics and assistive technology.
