Big data and Web Intelligence represent two areas of expertise of the EFREI Paris AlliansTIC research laboratory. These two areas of research and development are strategic targets for the development of companies and the economy as a whole.
The exponential growth in recent years of disseminated and harvested data has legitimately led to the question of what are the best tools to deal with, understand, classify, characterize and usefully exploit such data. The advent of big data is thus a critical field of research for the AllianSTIC.
With the rapid development of the Internet, and the new generation of Web-based products, systems, services and activities, Web Intelligence (WI) is an area of increasing research activity. This new and expanding area of research focus aims to explore the fundamental role and practical impact of advanced information and artificial intelligence technologies (knowledge representation, knowledge discovery, data mining, intelligent agents, and social networks).
