Information & Computing Lab seeks experimentation and development at the edge of data analysis techniques and ICTs as engines of this new economy and digital society. Besides the simple use of the ICTs and the application of data analysis to closed problems, we try to solve problems of increasing complexity in changing environments, enabling the decision-making process as a guarantee of sustainability in various areas.

 

Research topics

  • Crowd sensing: Monitoring of activity in urban areas and early detection of anomalies.
  • Diffusion of information in distributed networks and without infrastructure.
  • Application of LA (Learning Analytics) in mixed teaching environments (Blended-learning).

 

Keywords
