Currently, we work on the following projects:

  • Big Data Analytics for Unstructured Data
    Czech Science Foundation, 2016 – 2018
    Development of new foundations for Big Data Analytics requires an effective and efficient content-based access to data that is prevalently unstructured. For this data, to achieve the needed integration of large-scale knowledge discovery techniques with statistical modelling, it is necessary to first uncover descriptive knowledge of complex and heterogeneous objects to make them findable. Then, scalable search structures are needed to efficiently execute similarity access operations, considering also simultaneous execution of multiple queries. More information
  • Center for Large-Scale Multi-Modal Data Interpretation
    Czech Science Foundation, 2012 – 2018
    This project aims at exploiting large collections of unlabeled multi-modal data, mainly video footage, to further state-of-the-art in video, audio and natural language understanding, interpretation, annotation and retrieval by combining unsupervised and semi-supervised learning. It will address problems that are very difficult (some probably impossible) to solve in a single modality by adopting an interdisciplinary approach. More information
