Students are prepared for creative application of basic as well as advanced intelligent techniques to practical applications in all major application areas.
The main research topics at the Department are intelligent methods and algorithms for control and modeling of large-scale systems, risk-sensitive diagnosis of uncertain systems, computational intelligence techniques for modeling of intelligent systems and miscellaneous applications, intelligent decision support systems, pattern recognition, knowledge discovery, knowledge technologies for information retrieval and knowledge management.
The predecessor of the Department was founded in 1964. Department of Cybernetics and Artificial Intelligence was adapted in 1989. Currently it has 23 staff members, 20 internal and 20 external Ph.D. students. There are 3 sections within the department: Cybernetics, Artificial Intelligence, and Automation. Within the

Department there are active two research Centers: Centre for Cybernetics and Centre for Intelligent Technologies (www.ai-cit.sk).
The Department is involved in a number of research and educational projects. The following types of projects were under way in 2007: 7 European IST projects (2 integrated projects, 2 STREPs, 2 Networks of Excellence and 1 Specific Support Action), 1 Socrates thematic network, 1 bilateral USA-Slovak research project, and 1 bilateral Slovak-Czech project, 3 grants awarded by Cultural and Educational Grant Agency, and 5 grants awarded by Science Grant Agency.
