Research interests

  • Artificial Intelligence, Datamining, Optimisation, Modelling, Simulation


Professor Aickelin has worked for more than twenty years in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Optimisation and Datamining. He is particularly interested in the 'modelling' stages of problems with a focus on 'robustness'. During this time he has authored over 200 papers in leading international journals and conferences (Google citations 8000, H-index 48) and participated in over 100 international Conference Programme Committees. His YouTube videos on Datamining have been watched by more than 400,000 people. He has been an associate editor of the leading international journal in his field for ten years (IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation). Recently Computerphile has produced a number of clips about his work: Nuggets of Data Gold Illegal Immigration & the Known Unknowns How does GCHQ classify security? What is Machine Learning? Anti-Learning – So bad it’s good Why missing data is the most interesting
