A listing of UITM institutes where research is conducted:
Research in Information Technology
Research teams from the UITM are involved either in basic or applied research. Currently, two big projects, financed by Polish National Science Center, are implemented:
1) A new approach for effective training of complex intelligent systems (2016-2019)
Successful results of the project can solve many scientific and practical problems by replacing the traditional project approach with a new learning-based approach. This alternative method may have a wider meaning, allowing to find solutions to many problems that until now were impossible to solve by traditional methods.
2) Developing of effective mechanisms for robot perception using motivated learning and self-organizing associative memory (2017-2020)
The main objective of the research is to develop new effective perceptual mechanisms using generalized idea of motivated learning (ML), and new mechanisms for associative learning and inference. In order to use perception to acquire knowledge by interacting with the environment, the associative object recognition and scene representation system, supported by activities of a robot, will be refined. A test an innovative visual and acoustic perception system for a robot, based on the mechanisms of episodic memory, will be built.
In cooperation with Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Centre (Polish Academy of Science) and Emerline Ltd. the UITM conducts currently two other projects, financed by the EU funds within Regional Operational Program of Mazovia Region:
1) IVA service platform of virtual voice agents for emergency call hotlines automation (2017-2018)
The project aimed at creating the specialized system – Intelligent Virtual Agent – that applies speech recognition technology in dialogue process automation for emergency call hotlines.
2) Automatic Intelligent Customer Service System “AISOK” using speech recognition, voice biometrics and “Big-Data” data analysis (2018-2020)
The project is funded by PGNiG Polish Oil and Gas Minig and National Centre of Research and Development. The aim of the project is to develop and prepare for the implementation of the prototype of the Automatic Intelligent Customer Service System for PGNiG hotlines, using innovative mechanisms for speech recognition, voice biometry and artificial intelligence.
In a period of 2013-2016 researchers from UITM participated in a reseach project financed by the 7th EU Framework Programme, coordinated by University of West England: Physarum Chip: Growing Computers from Slime Mould. The main objectives are to design and fabricate a distributed biomorphic computing device built and operated by slime mould Physarum polycephalum.
Research results gained by UITM’s academics from the project Intelligent nonlinear systems with shallow and deep architectures were pointed by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education as one of the most important achievements of Polish scientists in 2016.
Research results of UITM’s teams in Information Technology were published e.g. in: IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INDUSTRIAL ELECTRONICS, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INDUSTRIAL INFORMATICS, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON NEURAL NETWORKS AND LEARNING SYSTEMS, INFORMATION SCIENCES, JOURNAL OF BUSINESS VENTURING, IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, ENTROPY, MEASUREMENT SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY.
