Increased research collaboration is beginning between UTS and Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) through a joint research centre in Intelligent Systems.
The new centre was formally launched on 2 November 2011. Based in China, the centre will provide the ability for exchange for academics and students of UTS.
Professor Chengqi Zhang, Director of UTS's Centre for Quantum Computation & Intelligent Systems (QCIS), has been announced as a Co-Director of the centre. The centre will provide the ability for exchange for academics and students from UTS. A key goal of the centre is to strengthen research training for research students in both institutions, through increased capacity and availability of exchange programs and supervision opportunities.
QCIS is expanding its collaborative strength, with the recent signing of a joint research centre with Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT). The Centre for Data Mining and Service Technology will further encourage student and researcher exchange.
A five-professor-per-side team will bring together the world class research strengths from each institution to work intensively on developing new strategies and approaches to data mining and service technology.
