The JSI Research Centre in Ljubljana


The Jožef Stefan Institute is the leading Slovenian scientific research institute, covering a broad spectrum of basic and applied research.

Founded in the late 40's to serve as an atomic weapons research centre, JSI today has more than 900 employees, specializing in natural sciences, life sciences and engineering.

In late January 2013, I had the pleasure to visit the Department of Knowledge Technologies, with which we collaborate on  various research initiatives.  The department  performs research in several "hot" information technoloy  areas, such as intelligent data analysis (machine learning, data mining, knowledge discovery), text and  web mining, semantic web, social network analysis, language technologies and computational linguistics.

During the visit, collaboration opportunities where identified, between University of the Aegean / Information Systems Lab and JSI / Knowledge Technologies Department in the areas of data and text mining,  advanced information systems for complex societal problem solving, social media and electonic governance.
