Intelligent information, telecommunication, computer, and control and operation technologies (PRA 6)

Research conducted as part of PRA 6 encompasses a wide scope of application of intelligent systems, including but not limited to those carried out as part of CERN experiments: TOTEM, CMS, and ALICE. The studies focus on FPGA systems, large data collection analysis, parallel and dispersed computing, and artificial intelligence. One of the results of the TOTEM experiment was the discovery of odderons – quasiparticles comprised of an odd number of gluons. The ALICE experiment resulted in the development of a novel measurement method of interactions between hadrons that can be used to study the physics of strongly interacting matter. Other types of research work include metaheuristics, hybrid and agent-based algorithms, and their concurrent and dispersed versions. During their research, the AGH UST scientists use the abundant infrastructure of the Academic Computer Centre CYFORNET AGH, as well as cooperate intensely with partners from other Polish universities and foreign institutions. Other important areas comprise inferences from knowledge based on graph representations, the use of graph grammars to model and solve Smart City problems, the design and control of technical city infrastructure, as well as investigation of pedestrian dynamics for the purposes of behaviour identification, architecture optimisation, or crisis management. Intelligent information, telecommunication, computer, and control and operation technologies also focus on research into ultrafast and stable solvers for B-spline simulations, into computer vision, and into data fusion collected from various sensors (e.g., cameras, IMU, lidars, radars). As part of PRA 6, interdisciplinary research is conducted by specialists in engineering and technical fields in the following disciplines: automatics, electronics, and electrical engineering, technical computer science and telecommunications.
