Historically, the field was centred around biologically inspired models and the long-term goals of much of the community are oriented to producing models and algorithms that can process information as well as biological systems. The field also encompasses many of the traditional areas of statistics with, however, a strong focus on mathematical models and also prediction. Machine learning is now central to many areas of interest in computer science and related large-scale information processing domains.
