The Research Institute of Computing Science and Technology (the Institute) is composed of the Intelligent Software Research Institute and a research team on new computer. Through developing itself as a first-class research center for computing science and cutting-edge technology as well as a platform for the transformation and promotion of high-level intelligent software achievements, it aims to create a special zone for cultivating professionals in computing science research and artificial intelligence.
There are four research institutions under the Institute: the Intelligent Software Research Institute, the New Computer Research Institute, the Bioinformatics Processing Research Institute and the Graph and Combination Optimization Research Institute. Research involves many cutting-edge scientific research fields such as computing science, mathematics, bioinformatics, new type of computer, intelligent software and artificial intelligence.
In accordance with the requirements of the Ministry of Education Engineering Center and the target of higher level platform, the Institute has built laboratories to include "new type of computer laboratory", "intelligent mathematics laboratory" and other laboratories.
The Institute currently has 18 full-time teachers, to include 11 professors, 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2 chief scientists of national project, and 1 provincial outstanding youth.
Academician Zhang Jingzhong, a well-known computer scientist, serves as Honorary Dean of the Research Institute of Computing Science and Technology. The team is led by Academician Zhang Jingzhong who is responsible for the establishment of the Guangdong Engineering Technology Research Center and the establishment and operation of the municipal key laboratory of the Guangzhou Municipal Science and Technology Commission.
With Academician Zhang Jingzhong at its core, the team undertook the establishment work of the Guangdong Engineering Technology Research Center and the establishment and operation of the municipal key laboratory of the Guangzhou Municipal Science and Technology Innovation Commission.
The team is in charge of National Key R & D Plan Projects, National High-tech Research and Development Plan (863 Plan) Projects, a number of National Natural Science Foundation Projects of China, and several Natural Science Foundation Projects of Guangdong province. In addition, the team has a deep research foundation in the field of new computing and intelligent software research.
