Amorphous Computing, Random Graphs and Complex Biological Systems

Artificial Neural Networks, Complex Networks

This interdisciplinary research collaboration arose within the Simple Models of Complex Networks research cluster funded by the EPSRC through the Novel Computation Initiative. Here, leading groups from the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, Nottingham, Southampton, Royal Holloway and King’s College and industrial partners BT are brought together for the first time to develop novel amorphous computation methods based on the theory of random graphs. In particular we focus on new models with particularly relevant structural features, and on network models in a broad range of biological (neuroscience, epidemics and regulatory networks) and communication (telephone, internet) domains.
