The Centre for Planning, Autonomy and Representation of Knowledge covers research in Artificial Intelligence, including Automated Planning, Knowledge Engineering, Knowledge Representation and Reasoning and machine learning. We are interested in solving foundational problems such as learning and reasoning with large amounts of data, automated learning and engineering of action knowledge for input to plan generation engines. And we are applying our AI expertise to the areas of autonomy, transport, machine calibration, health informatics and ambient intelligence.
Our Centre brings together experienced researcher leaders and many young, dynamic researchers. We are extremely proud that one of the younger scientists, Dr Mauro Vallati, received the highly competitive and prestigious UKRI Future Leadership award.
We have strategic partnerships with external bodies like the National Health Service, Kirklees Council and British Telecom. Our research is supported by agencies such UKRI, European Commission NIHR and Research England, as well as through direct research contracts with organisations and local industry.
