Researcher awarded prize for work on artificial intelligence

RESEARCH NEWS 15 February 2016 Tweet A computer science researcher from the University of the Strathclyde in Scotland, UK, has gained recognition for his PhD research into artificial intelligence. From interpreting huge streams of data at CERN, piloting autonomous vehicles, or predicting medical conditions such as heart failure – artificial intelligence and other sub-fields such as machine learning offer possible solutions for some of the most complex challenges facing the scientific community. Damien Anderson, who is from Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire, stated: ‘My research looks into ways to enable computers to figure out something on their own, whatever’s been programmed into them. For example, in computer games, AI could be used for the computer to work out why its performance has gone up or down and apply this to its strategies…
