SPARKS is an acronym for Scalable and Pervasive softwARe and Knowledge Systems
Head : Andrea G. B. Tettamanzi deputised by Johan Montagnat
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
