Areas of Expertise

The institute's expertise in software engineering encompasses the entire development lifecycle, and we focus on developing the approaches and tools to improve the engineering process of both emerging and widely used software systems.

Projects

A Semantic-Driven Cloud Migration Framework
Cloud computing is a fast emerging ICT technology to achieving an innovative and sustainable digital economy. It is expected to be a dominating model and technology of the ICT sector for the next 15 years. In the current practice, the migration of existing software to cloud(s) and the remigration...
Pro-talk
This IIDI project led by Alistair Lawson, Pro-talk, is investigating the development of an online analysis software API to enable feedback to be given aimed at helping learners of English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) to improve their pronunciation and understanding of English prosody.
