In our Knowledge Society, the vast amount of information that drives organizations and communities' activities imposes drastic changes on markets. It becomes emerging to automate the capturing, exploitation and dissemination of information coming from different sources, being in different grain size and in different modalities, in ways that are seamless to the performance of everyday activities in complex, unpredictable and dynamic environments.
In this setting, the goals of the AI-Lab include:
Empowering humans to perform collaborative activities in complex and dynamic settings
Exploiting and integrating information coming from different, possibly heterogeneous, information sources
Discovering knowledge from unstructured or semi-structured data
Designing and implementing distributed cognitive systems for information exploitation and collaboration
