A professor at the German University of Technology, Oman (GUtech) has received the National Research Award from The Research Council (TRC) for his published AI research for the year 2017.
Professor Dr Aydin Azizi, Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at GUtech conducted his research over the past three years and recently published it in an international, Q1 ranked, peer-reviewed engineering journal.
Prof. Aydin has introduced a novel hybrid artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm to analyse and calculate the optimised number and the position of RFID antennas needed to be deployed in the network in order to track and identify materials, products, and even live subjects.
“Artificial intelligence includes the design of intelligent agents to solve real-world every-day problems, and nowadays it is in high demand in most companies. My AI research can be applied in the different sectors such as telecommunication, transportation, energy, industry and even health care, for example through network of tracking identification cards, pattern recognition of rescue robots and more,” he said.
His results claim that the proposed new algorithm is a high performance and accurate technique to solve the complex problems involved in the above sectors.
Prof. Azizi is the investigative focal point of the Research Council of Oman (TRC). His main research interest is mechatronics, focusing on developing and investigating different AI research techniques to model, control and optimise the complex nonlinear systems for industrial applications.
