Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Computer Vision Research Group

Artificial Intelligence is a field that deals with the development of intelligent machines and software. We are working on the solutions of optimization problems with metaheuristics, Swarm Intelligence methods and especially Genetic Algorithms.

Within the scope of Machine Learning, we provide solutions to problems by using Artificial Neural Networks as well as other estimation methods and classifiers. We also apply Machine Learning methods in computer vision / image processing fields. Deep learning models, which have achieved serious success as a sub-field of machine learning in recent years; We also continue to work on intelligent systems that combine two or more artificial intelligence methods.
