Professor of Computational Neuroscience & Neural Engineering

University of Sheffield, UK
Department of Computer Science
Head of the Machine Learning group. Machine Learning aims to develop algorithms which automatically learn to recognize complex patterns in data, and use these to make intelligent decisions. The Machine Learning group forms part of the Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield. It has gained an international reputation for research into the development of machine learning techniques and their application to a diverse range of modelling tasks. Major research themes in the ML group include: Artificial Intelligence, Brain Imaging, Computational Systems biology, Computational Neuroscience, Gaussian Processes, Personalised Health, Optimisation, Tensor Analysis and Learning
