Knowledge Discovery Lab FI MU

Research in KD lab focuses on theory of inductive inference for learning from various data (multirelational, text, biomedical, streams) and to applications (spatio-temporal data, educational data). See lab pages for more information.

KD Lab tightly collaborates with INESC-LIAAD Porto and Universidade do Porto.
