About

The PATRAS research group is working on the following research aspects:

+ Pattern recognition in various security and safety applications
+ Cyber security
+ Data mining and pattern extraction,
+ Challenges in machine learning (e.g. lifelong learning, concept drift)
+ Big data analytics and visualisation
+ Image processing (e.g. biometrics, object detection and identification)
+ Data analysis and correlation
