Dr Kofi Appiah BSc, MSc (Oxon), MSc (SoC),PhD, PGCHE, FHEA, MIEEE

Lecturer in Computer Science


Experienced in the use of computational intelligence techniques for the analysis and modelling of large video datasets for finding patterns and extracting knowledge. My current research focuses on the interface between embedded computer vision, machine learning and neuroscience; mainly to understand and model the biological vision system on parallel architectures like Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA). I have developed several neural network and image processing algorithms for FPGA and ARM processors. I have also published over 40 peer-reviewed academic papers including journals on various real-time image processing algorithms for security surveillance and biologically plausible neural network models.
