Personal profile

Biography

Dr. Faiyaz Doctor is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Engineering and Computing and associate head of the Intelligent Information Modelling and Retrieval research group at Coventry University. He has previously worked jointly in industry and academia to develop novel artificial intelligence solutions for addressing real world problems related to smart environments, energy optimisation, predictive analytics and decision support. His work has resulted in high profile innovation awards (Best KTP Regional Finalist 2011, Load Stafford Award for Innovation) and an international patent on improved approaches for data analysis and decision-making using hybrid neuro-fuzzy and type-2 fuzzy systems: WO/2009/141631.

His research interests include ambient intelligence, pervasive computing and applications of affective computing, computational intelligence with an emphasis on fuzzy logic, applications of type-2 fuzzy logic and hybrid systems. Dr. Doctor has published over 50 papers in peer reviewed international journals, conferences and workshops. He is co-organiser of the International Workshop on Applications of Affective Computing in Intelligent Environments (ACIE) in conjunction with the International Conference on Intelligent Environments and is the current vice chair of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society’s Emergent Technologies ‘Affective Computing’ Task Force. He is also and member of the IEEE and IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.

Vision Statement

To develop novel real world ambient intelligent and pervasive systems using computational intelligence techniques for providing learning, modelling and smart recommendation capabilities in user centred environments. Current focus is on how affective and physiological computing can impact our everyday lives by monitoring, recognising and acting on information and signals from the body. Understanding these sensing modalities in context of ambient aware and ubiquitous computing environments will reveal a richer picture of how our physiological responses and affective states (emotions) and trajectories are a reaction to or influence how we implicitly or explicitly interact with the environment and computing artefacts within.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the persons scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
