Information management and data mining

The field of information management and data mining focuses on the collection, management and intelligent analysis of large-scale data repositories. Our research aims to help realize the dream of making data, and the associated knowledge hidden within, available anywhere, anytime and in any possible format. We are studying best practices concerning organization of and control over the structure, processing and delivery of information, especially within an e-commerce framework. Furthermore, our research aims to extract useful knowledge from these sources, by developing new techniques to seamlessly mine complex databases.

This research has applications in a variety of areas, including e-commerce, health care systems management, anthropometry, and bioinformatics, among many others. Our research includes the simulation of a complete data warehouse at a major teaching hospital and three major health care processes. We are also developing a location-aware data management and mining system, that aid users by providing them with personalized recommendations as they travel.
