Intelligent Systems

About the Group

This group conducts basic and applied research to develop intelligent systems for solving problems across a wide range of application areas including optimization and logistics, ambient intelligence, web semantics, healthcare, forecasting and business intelligence, among others.

The investigation focuses on the development of innovative heuristic, metaheuristic and hyper-heuristic algorithms based on computational intelligence and other techniques to model and understand the complexity of the interaction between problems and algorithms with the intention to develop an automated and adaptable computational platform to efficiently solve a variety of real-world problems.

The group also explores strategies such as multi-agent systems, web semantics and data mining for integrating models and methodologies to trace a path toward intelligent organizations and more personalized systems.
