Advanced Cognitive systems and Data Science (ACSAD)

The vision of the research group ACSAD is to be recognized as a leading organization linking academics and business communities in order to address societal issues based on interdisciplinary innovative approaches including systems engineering, cognitive applications, robotics, data science, mathematics, and management sciences. Our mission is to promote transdisciplinary research and education, by creating new knowledge, practical and innovative solutions addressing needs for various applied domain such as health, industry, energy ect.


New technologies, growing number of data and  speed of computers have reshaped new ways on how to address lifecycle of product, process or service development fulfilling requirements of people and business leading new possibilities for applications within various domains.

We define advanced cognitive systems and Data science as the applied research arena encompassing the following disciplines:

  • AI and Machine Learning
  • Cognitive systems design
  • Big data
  • Knowledge and Robotics
  • Signal processing and communications
  • Applied mathematics

Industrial and Research Projects

The ACSAD’s research group members participated in numerous projects.

Ongoing projects:

  • “Machine Learning for error diagnosis in Network” in collaboration with BlueeTree AS
  • “Machine Learning for proximity sensors” In collaboration with IPR, Germany
