Funded Research Projects
[*] EU H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie IF (MSCA): Intelligent Applications over Large Scale Data Streams (INNOVATE); 2018-2020.
PI: Dr C Anagnostopoulos
Abstract: INNOVATE proposes novel methodologies and solutions adopting a pool of computational intelligence schemes and ensemble learning models for fusing local pieces of knowledge in a timely and efficient way. Distributed stochastic optimization techniques will be developed to provide efficient solutions that can support large-scale data steam-based predictive analytics.
[*] EU H2020 FIRE+: Glasgow Network Functions for Unmanned Vehicles (GNFUV) 2018-2019.
PI: Dr C Anagnostopoulos
Abstract: Glasgow Network Functions for Unmanned Vehicles (GNFUV) is an extension of the Glasgow Network Functions (GNF) framework that operates over UxV infrastructures being particularly well-suited for operating over resourced-constrained and mobile Internet of Things (IoT) environments. GNFUV aims to showcase the capabilities of UxVs as hosting platforms for (virtualised) tasks, ranging from always-on monitoring and network topology self-management, to in-network, contextual information processing algorithms for edge-computing predictive analytics.
[*] UK EPSRC: Closed-Loop Data Science for Complex, Computationally- and Data-Intensive Analytics (CLDS) 2018-2022
co-PI: Dr C Anagnostopoulos
Abstract: Progress in sensing, computational power, storage and analytic tools has given us access to enormous amounts of complex data, which can inform us of better ways to manage our cities, run our companies or develop new medicines. However, the 'elephant in the room' is that when we act on that data we change the world, potentially invalidating the older data. In this project we will look at the overlap between the challenge someone faces when coping with all the choices associated with booking a flight for a weekend away, and an expert running complex experiments in a laboratory.
[*] EU Erasmus+ KA2: Personalised Recommendations and Internationalisation for MOOCs in European Schools (PRIMES), 2016-2019.
co-PI: Dr C Anagnostopoulos
Abstract: PRIMES aims to produce a novel e-learning platform, combining the wide reach and popularity of MOOCs with advanced artificial intelligence and data summarisation algorithms, to provide a truly personalised learning experience, fitted to the needs and characteristics of teenager (secondary school) students. PRIMES will further include pilot science, ICT and history courses, to be used, evaluated, and improved by students and teachers in the partnered schools.
