HPC Lab carries out research on algorithms and information systems dealing with computational, data-intensive problems in business, social, and knowledge-based applications. HPC Lab research areas include information indexing and retrieval, large-scale distributed and cloud systems, big data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, mobility analysis and semantic enrichment.

We develop state-of-the-art solutions for the efficient management and retrieval of large amount of data. Our (distributed) information systems scale far larger than most others and can provide in near real-time effective answers to complex queries by possibly using a limited amount of computational resources. We study space/time-efficient solutions to deal with scale and latency constraints, and quality/efficiency trade-offs exploiting the peculiarities of the specific application domain.

The group is composed of about 20 people and has very close collaborations and exchanges with outstanding international partners from both industry and academia.
