We carry out internationally leading research across a range of areas in computer science, artificial intelligence and cognitive science. Our research spans the theoretical and applied, often crossing traditional discipline boundaries.
Our research is organised around the following four research groups:
Our research often entails collaborations between the groups, as well as with other departments at Sussex and external academic, institutional and commercial partners. Funding for research projects comes from UK research councils (EPSRC, BBSRC, ESRC, AHRC, MRC), Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board), the European Union, charities, industrial contracts, and philanthropic donations.
