Academics from the Department of Informatics are conducting world-leading research with measurable impact: 1) an AI planning tool that makes drilling safer, faster, and more environmentally friendly, 2) the development of robotic therapy devices for the treatment of lower limb injuries, 3) pioneering 5G research that impacts global telecommunications industry and 4) research on provenance, a fundamental data governance technique that provides a reliable account of a system's actions and the data it altered.
Last September, Women PhD students from the Department of Informatics' research groups were invited to attend the 8th ACM Celebration of Women in Computing in Europe. Cristina, Mackenzie and Tanja represented their research groups of Algorithms and Data Analysis, Distributed AI, and Reasoning and Planning at the conference.
