Intelligent Technology Innovation Lab (ITIL) group

We conduct research in developing smart technology that can solve contemporary social problems of our daily life to achieve a better living for community.

The group’s major strength is Artificial Intelligence (AI) that can use machine comprehension to extract semantic meaning. Our application areas include cyber security, healthcare, smart city, tourism and domestic violence.
