AI Research Group

This is the website for the Artificial Intelligence Research Group at the University of St Andrews. Find out who our members are on the People page. Have a look at some of our Research Projects. Or take a look at all the papers published by our members on the Publications page.

The Artificial Intelligence Research Group’s work in artificial intelligence and symbolic computing is concerned with how we can make use of computers to augment human mathematical and logical capabilities and in investigating how to automate human capabilities such as face recognition. We are very active in the field of Constraint Programming, where our interests are constraint modeling and design of efficient constraint solvers – such of Minion.

Science and Innovation mission to Japan


Sue Kinoshita, Minister Counsellor economic affairs and Professor Quigley

This week Professor Quigley joined a mission to Japan with other academics from the University of Oxford, Edinburgh, UCL and Manchester. The week long event was organised by the UK’s Science and Innovation team in Japan, part of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Over five days the delegation visited and presented at seven companies along with three seminars and workshops. Across nine presentations Professor Quigley presented to hundreds of people and introduced some of the Human Computer Interaction research in SACHI, along with research from the AI research group. This mission has the goal to strengthen research collaboration and innovation partnership between the UK and Japan.

During his talks, Aaron provided examples from our engineering doctorate program, our MSc program, work on research interns, PhD students and academics from across Computer Science.
