Computational intelligence algorithms: smart and embedded applications

20 February 2018, 14:00 - 16:00
Chelmsford campus

ARITI is delighted to welcome Dr Ioannis Kypraios from our Department of Computing & Technology at Anglia Ruskin University.

Dr Kypraios's presentation followed by a Q&A session will take place from 2-3pm. Refreshments and networking will take place from 3-4pm.


Recent advances in Science and Technology have brought into our everyday life several smart devices and gadgets which claim to help us complete our daily tasks easier and more efficiently. From autonomous self-driving vehicles to smart health monitors, the common theme behind them has been the computational intelligence. Computational intelligence involves at least one or more algorithms which can be applied for usually solving a real-life problem or completing a real-life task. Significant algorithm developments the past few years in computational intelligence and, more specifically, in emerging areas of Computer and Machine Vision, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence have produced some exciting applications which would have been almost unimaginable until a few years ago.

In this seminar, real-life applications of computational intelligence developed by the author are discussed. The main technical challenges are described and the implemented solution is demonstrated each time. Dr. Ioannis Kypraios presents a variety of computational intelligence algorithms, such as a holistic scene segmentation, cognitive clustering and classification, stochastic decision trees, human pose recognition, photoplethysmographic imaging, and advanced robust object recognition systems. Dr. Kypraios aims to demonstrate some of the current trends in computational intelligence technologies in public rail transport safety, smart cameras for homeland security, remote sensing and classification, anti-spoofing mobile security, and autonomous driving amongst others.


Dr. Kypraios is the author of over 35 scientific articles in peer-reviewed International conferences and journals, including IEEE Proceedings, EURASIP, Optical Society of America Applied Optics Journal and SPRINGER Informatics and Multimedia Special Series, over twenty Technical Reports, two Patents and he has presented his research results at several public exhibitions and invited seminars including IET Special Seminar Series. In February 2013 his book “Advances in Object Recognition Systems” by Intech featured in a University of Oxford e-news page. Previously, he has organised and chaired a special session in “Advances in Image Processing” hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. In February 2012, Dr. Kypraios was appointed an IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) GOLD Subcommittee Member. In August 2012, he presented his work in human synthetic movement tracking for an international symposium sponsored by the Russian Academy of Sciences. In August 2013, Dr. Kypraios presented his work in cognitive hybrid robust object recognition systems at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden.

In overall, Dr. Kypraios has over 15 years of experience in conducting scientific research in Computational Intelligence and Embedded Computing with cross-discipline work at Neuroinformatics. From 2008-2009 he was a full-time Research Fellow at University of Sussex. In 2010, he became a visiting Senior Research Scientist at MMLAB of the University of Gent in Belgium. In January 2011, he became Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the Department of Engineering and Informatics, ICTM (assoc. London South Bank University), London, and in April 2012 he joined APEM’s Computing Labs as Senior and then Principal Computing Scientist at Begbroke Science Park of University of Oxford. In March 2014, Dr. Kypraios moved to Industry working as Senior Research Scientist and Project Leader at Continental ADAS SV Systems in East Sussex. In December 2015, he became Senior Research Scientist at FotoNation (Tessera Technologies Group/xPeri). In November 2016, he received a 6-months Industry Fund by FLIR Intelligent Systems. In September 2017, Dr. Kypraios joined the Department of Computing and Technology as full-time Senior Lecturer in Computing and Networking.
