Research Groups, Centres and Institutes
The AVS group investigates theoretical approaches to coping with computational intractability as well as their applications to real-world tasks such as software verification and scheduling. Our methodologies include parameterisation, approximation, randomisation, heuristics, satisfiability encodings, and the use of neural networks.
The Birkbeck Institute for Data Analytics was founded to develop interdisciplinary research in Data Analytics and Data Science. It provides the focus, and a platform for research, that combines expertise in Computer Science with domain-specific requirements and knowledge arising from across all areas of research at Birkbeck, including the Sciences, Social Sciences, Economics and Humanities.
The Birkbeck Knowledge Lab is a unique collaboration of experts from computer science, education, psychology, language, museum studies, cultural heritage, information systems and organisational psychology, exploring the ways in which digital technologies and digital information are transforming our learning, working and cultural lives.
