Research Interests

I read physics at Oxford, took an MSc in Computer Science at London, and subsequently obtained a DPhil at University of Sussex for research on neural net models of brain function. After several years working as a neurophysiologist I made a career change back to computer science in 1980. Since then my primary research interest has been in various aspects of machine learning, with a secondary interest in applied artificial intelligence. These two aspects of my work have now converged and most of my current research activity is concerned with data mining. However, I remain actively interested in a number of other topics including cognitive science (particularly models of memory and attention) and philosophical aspect of AI.
