University of Liverpool computer scientist Professor Mike Wooldridge, from the School of Electrical Engineering, Electronics, and Computer Science, has been awarded a £2million grant from the European Research Council (ERC).
The grant is to develop the theory and tools to understand how economic factors and self-interested behaviour affect the way that computer systems function. Current tools for analysing computer systems fail to take into account economic factors, which are prevalent in settings such as e-commerce which makes this area of research both timely and necessary.
Professor Wooldridge said: “This research grant confirms the international reputation of the Department of Computer Science for fundamental and applied research particularly in the area of artificial intelligence.”
The ERC supports high-quality research in Europe through a competitive, peer-reviewed funding programme.
The prestigious ERC Advanced Grant scheme, under which this project is funded, is intended to support internationally leading researchers.
The University of Liverpool currently hosts two other ERC Advanced Grants, held by Professor Matt Rosseinsky in the Department of Chemistry, and Professor John Dainton in the Department of Physics.
