The Adaptive and Cognitive Systems Lab investigates architectures and frameworks for self-learning cognitive systems that are able to adapt to an evolving environment.
Cybersecurity is one of the most pressing problems experienced in almost all industries. The focus of this group is on the combination of the two disciplines, Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence.
AI for development include topics such as Applied AI within Information Systems (IS), AI in Data Science, AI and socio-technical development; AI supporting sustainable end environmental development, AI for business innovation, and lastly, semantic technologies and applied ontology within information systems.
Representation learning underpins forecasting, prediction and control for optimising data-driven decision-making. The lab explores sequential (time series), similarity and rank, surrogate models and lifelong learning tasks.
The CAIR node at NWU studies machine learning, with a specific emphasis on the theory and application of deep learning. The group has a longstanding interest in the theoretical analysis of these networks, including their interpretability and generalisation behaviour. The group also applies these techniques to various domains.
The CAIR group at UKZN conducts research in machine learning in general and deep learning in particular. The group focuses on deep learning neural network and Bayesian deep learning approaches to solving problems in recommender systems, natural language processing, self driving cars and image processing and computer vision.
CAIR at Stellenbosch University conducts research in knowledge abstraction and representation, including symbolic modelling, computational logic, algorithmic problem solving, and related aspects of computational thinking for AI.
This research group is located at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Pretoria.
KRR is a research group based in Computer Science at the University of Cape Town, working on various aspects of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning.
Speech Technologies is a research group affiliated with the Telkom Centre of Excellence for Speech Technology, located at the University of Limpopo in the Department of Computer Science
The goal of the group is to conduct applied research in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, with a focus on Mathematical and Computational Statistics.
The research group at the Sol Plaatje University is a CAIR Development Initiative. The group has a strong emphasis on applied research and is currently working on the identification of nature-inspired swarm intelligence techniques for various applications including autonomous robotics.
