Computer Science Research Areas and Disciplines
One area of current research is that into computer vision. Researchers are equipping robots with the sensory feedback necessary to help automate tasks. It finds applications in product inspection, material sorting, and quality assurance. It has important environmental applications such as satellite remote sensing and environmental monitoring. Another use of computer vision includes improving the use of robots in hostile environments such as in search and rescue, humanitarian de-mining, hazardous waste clean up, and space exploration.
Another hot area of research is that of information security and data management. Scientists are investigating ways to improve language-based security, access control, and protection technologies for social computing such as Facebook. Other researchers are investigating the use of biometrics for security purposes, from biometric identification and recognition to multi-modal systems design, and biometric data synthesis.
Research in computer science is far ranging in other areas as well: see the articles on software engineering, computational mathematics, cryptography, and computer engineering for more information on current research. As well, computer science research frequently overlaps with research in other fields such as physics, biology, mechanics, and electrical engineering.
