intelligent systems research
Intelligent systems include computers, robots and sensors that perceive, reason and act in ways that are similar in function to humans. Advances in intelligent systems support industrial development in harsh environments and in applications where it is not feasible for humans to manufacture products or process materials efficiently.
The J.I. Clark Chair has extensive experience in the development and application of these technologies for the mining, oil & gas, fisheries & aquaculture, and forestry industries. In partnership with C-CORE, the Chair has developed a telerobotics and computer vision laboratory (aka The Romper Room) which provides for the development and validation of proof-of-concept systems for industrial collaborators.
The J.I. Clark Chair provides graduate and undergraduate research opportunities for students who are interested in applied R&D with C-CORE’s industry partners. Following their studies, the students follow different career paths as a result of their experiences here and some go on to further studies (click here), to form companies based on their research results (click here) or to bring their expertise to already established companies working in areas related to the field of intelligent systems.
Clark Chair is active in the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Systems
and AquaNet, which are both funded through the Networks of Centres of
Excellence Programmes. The Chair is also positioned to play a role in the new
and Gas Development Partnership at Memorial University.
