Research Trust Areas

Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

They play a prominent role in most conversations about the future of technology, business, the workplace and even humanity itself.

Image and Video Analytics

Image and video analytics are important computer vision technology with the aim of making sense of image and video content in order to ultimately understand ubiquitous and rich source of information. It has been used in diverse multimedia applications, including visual surveillance, healthcare, smart cities, and security.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is a dynamic global network infrastructure consisting of uniquely identifiable physical and virtual things with self-configuring capabilities. The thinks may refer to items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity. Researches are currently focusing on providing support for IoT Architecture, Identification, Communications, Network Technology, Network Discovery, Security and Software solutions.

Data Analytics

data analytics examines different analytic techniques against very large, diverse data sets that include structured, semi-structured and unstructured data, from different sources, and in different sizes from terabytes to zettabytes.

Networks and Information Security

Network Security refers to the measures taken by any enterprise or organization to secure its computer network and data using both hardware and software systems. This aims at securing the confidentiality and accessibility of the data and network

Distributed and Cloud Computing

Distributed Cloud Computing generalizes the cloud computing model to position, process, and serve data and applications from geographically distributed sites to meet requirements for performance, redundancy and regulations.

Mobile Computing

Mobile Computing is a technology that allows transmission of data, voice and video via a computer or any other wireless enabled device without having to be connected to a fixed physical link.

Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality

Virtual reality uses a headset to place you in a computer-generated world that you can explore. Augmented reality, on the other hand, is a bit different. Instead of transporting you to a virtual world, it takes digital images and layers them on the real world around you through the use of either a clear visor or smartphone.
