KIWI is part of the department "Complex Systems, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics" of the LORIA laboratory
The KIWI team is interested in automatic analysis of digital traces, either to build predictive behavior models or to design personalized recommendation systems. Such work has many application domains.
Our goal is to provide students with adapted pedagogical resources, and teachers with feedback (learning analytics).
We design models to early diagnose pathologies (sports accidents, neurodegenerative diseases).
Digital media services
We help users to come up with personalized music, movies, and TV shows.
Recommender systems may be used to find relevant items, and to make users' decisions easier.
We improve the visitor experience in physical spaces by computing adapted pathes (museums, smart cities, ...).
Information and social networks
We improve the interactions between users and information systems / social networks.
