About DISA

There are huge amounts of digital data all around us…

…that need to be effectively organized!

In the Laboratory of Data Intensive Systems and Applications (DISA), we study and develop modern techniques for effective and efficient data management:

  • Similarity-based indexing and searching
  • Content-based multimedia processing
  • Distributed data organization
