SPARKS is an acronym for Scalable and Pervasive softwARe and Knowledge Systems
Head : Andrea G. B. Tettamanzi deputised by Jean-Paul Comet and Marco Winckler.
The team investigates the organization, the representation, and the distributed processing of knowledge, as well as its extraction from data and its semantic formalization. A particular attention is dedicated, on the one hand, to large-scale architectures and massive data and, on the other hand, to the design of human- and knowledge-centered, evolutionary and adaptive software systems.
The team’s scientific objectives are therefore naturally structured around four main research themes:
The keywords that best describe the areas of interest of the team’s members and their field of activity are the following (sorted by order of importance):
The SPARKS tream includes a “common project-team” between I3S and INRIA : wimmics: web-instrumented man-machine interactions, communities and semantics
