Artificial intelligence and data analytics

Our research is aimed at developing novel methods for capturing, modelling and processing information that is encoded in natural language or in structured form.

Our primary focus is on knowledge representation and reasoning, computational argumentation, natural language processing and data analytics.

We also have a particular interest in research that crosses the boundaries of the aforementioned fields, including neuro-symbolic reasoning, commonsense reasoning and representation learning.
