The GOAL research group, standing for Group on Optimization And Learning focusses on the design of innovative methods for artificial intelligence and their application to complex real world problems. Our activity is currently mainly focussed on optimization (continuous, combinatorial, dynamic and static, single- and multi-objective, exact algorithms, metaheuristics, parallelism,..), machine learning (SVMs, deep learning, neural networks, regression techniques), sustainable computing (autonomous programming, automatic generation of energy-efficient SW, efficient resources management), and intelligent transportation systems.
