Biomimetics and Intelligent Systems – BISG
Strategic research project of the University of Oulu
Focus Institute: Infotech Oulu
Faculty: Information Technology and Electrical Engineering
The Biomimetics and Intelligent Systems Group (BISG) is a fusion of expertise from the fields of computer science and biology. In BISG, our bread and butter is intelligent systems, and our research areas include data mining, machine learning, robotics, and information security. More precise research topics vary from data mining algorithm development and optimization of industrial manufacturing processes all the way to environmental monitoring with mobile robots. In addition to the group’s long term research strands, it also aims to provide concrete new openings for the purpose of reacting to fundamentals and novelties to integrate better ICT and biotechnology/biomedicine. The rapid development of ICT and Bio has opened up new unexpected ways to achieve better and concrete synergies and integration of these research fields.
