We perform research in advanced information technologies aimed at acquiring, storing and managing knowledge to be used in the development of an information and knowledge-based society. Established areas include intelligent data analysis (machine learning, data mining, and knowledge discovery in databases), semantic data mining and the semantic web, language technologies and computational linguistics, decision support and knowledge management, while computational creativity is a novel research area.
