University of Leicester Joins ULTRACEPT as Project Coordinator

Following the relocation of ULTRACEPT project lead Prof Shigang Yue from University of Lincoln (UoL) to the University of Liecester (ULEIC), ULEIC joined the consortium as a project partner and took over the role as Project Coordinator from the 15 June 2023.

ULEIC’s School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) has dedicated research groups conducting world leading research in artificial intelligence, computer vision, medical image processing, visual neural systems modelling, autonomous systems, cyber security, big data analytics, and evolutionary computation. The school has up-to-date modern computing equipment and facilities fostering cutting edge research, all based in the newly refurbished Ken Edwards building with world-leading research equipment.

The school currently has more than 60 academic staff and over 130 post-doctoral and PhD students, and school staff have attracted multiple millions of external funding from EU FP7, ERC, Horizon 2020, EPSRC, UKRI and industrial projects.

ULEIC has close collaboration with several leading research groups on experimental visual neurobiology worldwide. ULEIC has modern facilities to host seconded researchers to work on complex visual neural system modelling, testing, and FPGA implementation. ULEIC team is the developer of Colias® micro swarm robots. The seconded researchers hosted by ULEIC will be well supported by host supervisors and with resources such as offices, labs, equipment, library access, and other benefits as a member of CMS.
