The IKR3 Lab


The Information and Knowledge Repersentation, Retrieval, and Reasoning Laboratory (IKR3 Lab), previously Information Retrieval Lab (IR Lab), was established in 2005 at the Department of Informatics, Systems, and Communication (DISCo), University of Milan-Bicocca

Today the huge amount of content (including user generated content) available on the Web has increased to a point that the need for effective systems that allow an easy and flexible access to information relevant to specific user’s needs is motivating a big deal of research. By flexibility is meant the capability of the system to both manage imperfect (vague and/or uncertain) information, and to adapt its behavior to the user context.

The research activity undertaken by the IKR3 Lab is aimed at defining models and techniques that improve the limitations of current systems for the Information Access. In particular, Information Retrieval and Information Filtering task are considered. The research activity undertaken by the IKR3 Lab also addresses the issues of Text Mining and Social Media Analytics.

The Information and Knowledge Representation, Retrieval, and Reasoning Laboratory has been hosting several visiting Ph.D. students and visiting professors.
