Artificial Intelligence and Integrated Computer Systems (AIICS)

The main focus of interest for the AIICS division is intelligent artifacts. Intelligent artifacts are defined as man-made physical systems containing computational equipment and software that provide them with capabilities for receiving and comprehending sensory data, for reasoning, and for rational action in their environment.

Examples of such artifacts range from PDAs and software agents to ground and aerial robots (UAVs and UGVs). An equally important focus is the development of integrated systems which include hardware, software, sensors and human users.

The Artificial Intelligence and Integrated Computer Systems Division (AIICS) has circa 20 members and three research laboratories which include five (research) groups. The director of the division is Professor Patrick Doherty who may be contacted at
