Smart ICT innovations can help solving the issues deriving from the increasing complexity of our society and economy. The Center aims to contribute to these innovations by focusing on three related worldwide primary research challenges, which are recalled in the Center’s name.

Specifically, the activity of the Center will revolve around the following three areas:

  • Data-intensive information systems, data and web Mining
  • Multimedia information and interaction design
  • Pattern recognition, machine learning, computer vision

The Center’s mission is to advance the state of the art in these areas building on the tremendous advances made in various individual disciplines in the last decade. New computational tools will be built and disseminated, and a new generation of researchers will be trained to solve large-scale real-world problems with relevant economic and social impact.
