Knowledge Abstraction, Representation and Reasoning

The CAIR node at Stellenbosch University conducts research in knowledge abstraction, representation and reasoning as it relates to Artificial Intelligence. Our focus is therefore on the study and use of AI techniques in problem and domain representation and algorithms, both within the host Department of Information Science and across departments and faculties at the University. At present, CAIR­-SU conducts research in the the following fields:

­- Algorithmics — the study and invention of accurate, efficient and correct algorithms;

- Data Analysis — the transformation of data into useful information to support decision­ making;

- Knowledge Representation — the study of formal domain modelling and reasoning;

- Machine Learning — the study of algorithms that can learn from and make predictions on data;

­- Visualization — the study of visual representations of abstract data to reinforce human cognition.
