SCIENTIFIC WORK

Our researchers come from the research teams of some of the major universities in Lombardy (Italy) and today they make their expertise and method available to C2T’s clients.

 

Our ICT laboratory has a growing team of researchers within it, to integrate – where needed – the consolidated experience of developers with innovative approaches and in step with the latest technologies, on system integration projects for small and large enterprises.

The main research areas considered by the ICT Lab are:

  • Knowledge Management & Extraction
  • Information Retrieval
  • Fuzzy Based Systems
  • Machine Learning
  • Databases, Data Mining, Data Extraction & Data Management
  • Business Process

Application areas

The currently active research and development lines refer to the following areas:

  • Design and development, together with Find Your Doctor S.r.l., the education department of the University of Milano-Bicocca and the IT department of the University of Milano-Bicocca, of analysis tools for the evaluation of the professional profile of researchers and of an information retrieval tool based on machine learning techniques to allow automatic matching between the needs of companies/organisations and the experiential and motivational paths of researchers
  • Design and development of algorithms for the extraction of information in the financial field, as well as study and prototyping of innovative software for FinTech. In this regard, C2T is one of the promoters of a special session at the international congress DSAA 2018, The 5th IEEE International Conference on Data Science and Advanced Analytics, entitled “Opportunities and Risks for Data Science in Organizations: Banking, Finance, and Policy”.
  • Study of innovative metrics for the evaluation of Personalized Information Retrieval (PIR) systems. In this regard, C2T has been one of the promoters of the CLEF Laboratory “Personalized Information Retrieval” since 2017. The 2018 edition of CLEF, Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum, was held in September in Avignon, France.
  • Study of the problems related to the description of semantics in the Big Data collections. Project in collaboration with the University of Milan and part of the participation of C2T in the IFIP Group.
  • Machine Learning techniques used in the implementation of an approach to support histological analysis conducted by pathological analysis institutes.
