Areas of Interest

University of Edinburgh, UK
Jonathan Corney has been investigating innovative, industrial applications of computing technology since the 1980s. He graduated in Mechanical Engineering in 1983 and then worked as a ‘junior robot designer’ for the Westinghouse Electric Corp. He subsequently became a researcher at Edinburgh University’s Department of Artificial Intelligence, before joining Heriot-Watt University as a lecturer, where he researched topics in mechanical CAD/CAM (e.g. feature recognition, 3D content based retrieval). He took up the chair of “Design and Manufacture” at the University of Strathclyde in 2007 where he investigated manufacturing applications of crowdsourcing; cloud interfaces for manufacturing, the interactive search of digital media and, most recently, the creation of ‘predictive CAD systems’ by leveraging data analytics. Currently he is Professor of Digital Manufacturing at the University of Edinburgh School of Engineering. He has published two books and over 80 papers on various aspects of CAD/CAM and advanced manufacturing. Software and algorithms resulting from his research have been incorporated in the commercial products of three different companies. His interests in CAD/CAM are complemented by research into various metal forming processes (e.g. Near Net Shape and novel Cold Forming Technologies) and his work as Co-Director of the ‘Scottish Institute of Remanufacturing’.
