Our group is very dynamic. The main contributions to our research come from visitors and long-distance collaborations.

Project: "Prototype Selection from Streaming, Drifting and Partly Labelled Data Using Classifier Ensembles" sponsored by The Leverhulme Trust (RPG_2015_188).
Project: "Classifier Ensembles for Changing Environments" sponsored by EPSRC 2005-2007, (# EP/D0404X/1).
