Member of the Steering Board:

Elena Baralis, Full Professor – DAUIN

Her current research interests are in the field of database systems and data mining, more specifically on mining algorithms for big databases and sensor/stream data analysis. Her research activity focuses on the study of algorithms for diverse data mining tasks on Big Data, including association rule mining to discover correlation among data at different abstraction levels, the extraction of knowledge for performing predictions (classification task), grouping of similar data (clustering task) and extracting summaries from textual data (summarization task). More information are available here
