Major Research Collaboration News

Cybula Ltd and the University of York
have won over £4.3 million pounds of collaborative research under two 3-year


The DAME £3M project is a flagship e-Science
project to build a distributed diagnostic system in collaboration with
Rolls-Royce plc, Systems and Solutions, The Universities of Sheffield, Leeds,
Oxford and York. A major part of the project will extend the AURA pattern
matching engines to operate over distributed networks, allowing multiple engines
at different sites to operate as one large engine.


The FEDAURA project is funded by DTI and EPSRC in collaboration
with the Benefits Agency, SEMA, EDS and Sun Microsystems in a £1.3M project
supported by the DTIs management of
information programme
. The project will use Cybula’s AURA technology to
combat benefit fraud and the development of the technology for fraud
