Research Interests

My main area of research is Artificial Cognitive Systems. Essentially, how to use inspiration from natural intelligence to enable computers/machines/robots to behave usefully. This includes:

Industrial and business links have been through doctorate studies (four years with British Steel/Corus), postdoctoral work (three years with British Aluminium/Alcoa) and applied research work (Knowledge Transfer Partnerships). Experience and expertise in Rolling Mills, along with application of Artificial Intelligence techniques, heuristics and modern information technology systems to real-world problems has led to successful project outcomes. Blue skies research includes analogues of emotions, abstraction, memory systems, small worlds phenomenon, confusion/dissonance and machine consciousness.
