Autonomous and Advanced Systems

Advanced computing underpins everyday life across the globe in a way that affects us all. Our research seeks to understand, build, and apply human-agent collectives to symbiotically interleave human and computer systems with a view to realising the tremendous potential of intelligent systems whilst avoiding the pitfalls that come with dependence. We are using our world class scientists, engineers and facilities to develop the next generation of autonomous systems.
