Intelligent Interactive Information Access

Intelligent Interactive Information Access (IIIA) addresses all the areas of data management and engineering, including storage, indexing, querying, search and recommendation, personalisation and user adaptation. IIIA leverages machine learning and neural methods to exploit user interaction signals and provide an intelligent and adaptive experience in seeking for information.

We deal with multimodal and multilingual information with various levels of structure ranging from structured (databases), to semi-structured (document stores), and unstructured information (Web and social media). We develop IIIA algorithms, methods, systems, and applications, and we benchmark the proposed solutions.
