Bio-mimetic Research Group


  • Artificial immune systems
  • Evolutionary computation and evolutionary robotics
  • Particle swarm optimisation
  • Soft computing
  • Swarm intelligence
  • Metaheuristic Optimization Algorithm

The BiRG is a research group that focuses on research activities related to artificial intelligence and more specifically in evolutionary computing methods and its applications in manufacturing.
BiRG outshines in the field of evolution and optimization particularly for robotics, gaming and metaheuristic cognitions (e.g., game AI design, aircraft wing design, robot morphology) 



  • To conduct state-of-the-art research in artificial intelligence from the perspectives of evolutionary computing, as well as to provide postgraduate training in the field of evolutionary computing for human capital development to the nation.
  • To provide industries with more efficient EC-based algorithms to increase their productivity.
  • To produce a highly-trained workforce with EC knowledge to support local industries that requires AI methodologies.
  • To develop and consult on high-level EC-based biometric security systems.
  • To increase awareness on the importance of EC research, development and innovation.
