Information Integration
Research Group

  ISI's Information Integration (II) research group combines artificial intelligence and database integration techniques to solve complex information integration problems. We leverage general research techniques across information-intensive disciplines, including medical informatics, geospatial data integration and the social Web.  
  The II group currently is pursuing automatic discovery and semantic modeling of online information sources, interactive data integration, information mediators for bioinformatics, and learning from online social networks, among other techniques. Our work focuses on solving real-world problems to bridge research and relevant applications.
