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 in Bratislava, Faculty of Informatics and Information Technologies (FIIT STU) established in 1999. It is concerned to the new trends in adaptive social web with semantics, which allow text and data analysis, processing and personalized presentation of information in various domains. We research methods of text and data analysis, strongly focused on 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.
