PeWe Family

What we do?

PeWe (Personalized Web) is a research group at the Institute of Informatics, Information Systems and Software Engineering, Slovak University of Technology, Faculty of Informatics and Information Technologies (FIIT STU) established in 1999. It is concerned to the new trends in design and development of adaptive social web-based systems with semantics, which allow personalized presentation of information in various domains. We concentrate on data analysis and machine learning in various domains including text mining and text processing, recommendation, user feedback analysis. For user implicit feedback we use also various sensors, mainly eyetrackers. Everybody interested in is welcome.
