This project is supported by the European Commission (ASI/B7-301/97/0126-08). 1/7/2001-30/6/2002. The project coordinator is Professor Xin Yao and partners are Dr. Hans-Michael Voigt and Professor Kalyanmoy Deb.
The project addresses natural computation techniques that include neural networks, evolutionary computation and various artificial intelligence techniques (e.g. expert systems). The project will provide eight taught courses at the postgraduate level in the university context. The courses will be designed, developed and delivered by leading international experts. They aim to provide the very latest ITC technologies to people in the manufacturing industry. The courses cover a number of topics in neural networks , evolutionary computation, molecular and quantum computation and artificial intelligence techniques.
