Research Activities pursued at the organisation
The research activities of the Department of Computer Science are focused
to the following fields:
- Hardware equipment for distributed systems, parallel systems and computer
networks. Methods and means of data communication in distributed systems;
means of formal specification of network protocols, their implementation
and testing. Performance and reliability models; experimental
verification of distributed algorithms in quasi-parallel and parallel
environments, and fault tolerance of these algorithms.
- Methods and means of information and database system design; integration
of database and knowledge systems; translation of declarative languages
into SQL. Object oriented analysis and design of information systems.
Knowledge representation in deductive databases. Problems of parallelism
in distributed database systems.
- Application of artificial intelligence, knowledge--based systems, and
visual information processing concepts and methods in pattern recognition.
Development of an effective human-machine communication system based
on multimedia interaction. Speech recognition and natural language
processing, development of a multi-lingual information retrieval dialog
system. Application of pattern recognition methods in fingerprint
- Development of general methods and algorithms in computer graphics and
their application in CAD systems. Application of dual representation
in solving intersection of geometrical figures in E(n). Multimedia
systems and data visualisation.
