I lead the Intelligent Systems and Data Science research group in KMi, which carries out research in a variety of areas relevant to the development of user-centric, intelligent, data-intensive solutions. These include Artificial Intelligence (AI), Intelligent Systems, Data Science, Semantic Web Technologies, Visual Analytics, Cognitive Robotics, Machine Learning, Human-Computer Interaction and others. Application domains include (but are not limited to) Smart Cities, Scholarly Data, Media Analytics, and Digital Humanities. In March 2019, I also took up a Professor II position at the University of Bergen, to contribute to the development of the MediaFutures Centre and progress a novel research line on the application of AI technologies to Computational Journalism and Media Analytics.
Since 2014 my group has been collaborating closely with Springer Nature, a very successful strategic partnership that has enabled us to ground our research in concrete business requirements, leading to several highly innovative techniques, applications and resources. Another key area of current research concerns the development of intelligent robots, able to integrate state of the art machine learning techniques with knowledge-based reasoning, to improve their visual intelligence and make sense of their environment. A current application context for this work concerns the use of cognitive robots for in-house healthcare assistance.
The OERxDomains Conference took place online on April 21-22 as a special edition of the 12th annual conference for Open Education research, practice and policy.
