Swansea University computer scientists have worked in a broad range of subjects in the areas of visual computing. Since 1992 when it was first established by Professor Min Chen (now Oxford) and Professor Peter Townsend (retired), the group has grown to a team of 10 academics (Dr Daniel Archambault, Dr Jingjing Deng, Dr Mike Edwards, Professor Mark W Jones, Dr Ben Mora, Dr Alma Rahat, Dr Gary Tam, Dr Thomas Torsney-Weir, Dr Sean Walton, Professor Xianghua Xie), and around 35 researchers and PhD/MPhil/MRes.
The group has contributed a large collection of novel techniques and significant breakthroughs in the fields of Data Visualization, Computer Vision, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, Visual Analytics, Data Science, Computer Graphics, Interaction and GPU programming.
The group follows an ambitious and curiosity driven programme to develop new algorithms and methods, as well as advanced software techniques and tools, for these areas. It has a number of on-going collaborative research projects with scientists from around the world, and is actively involved in knowledge transfer and industrial applications.
