Current Research Projects

DM Lab's Research Initiatives

The main aim of this research initiative is to document the spread of COVID-19 cases worldwide on a daily basis and to analyze the available data with the use of Business Intelligence. Furthermore, hoping that the spread of the epidemic will eventually decrease, the research team is planning to collect data on various aspects of daily life and discover correlations between the datasets to evaluate the effects of the coronavirus spread.

The primary aim of AGORA initiative is to create an effective scouting mechanism for young talented scientists and give an end to the brain drain in Greece. Currently, the research team is in the process of creating several software artifacts and smart services around the labor market. These will form the building blocks of a digital ecosystem to accommodate all services around AGORA.

A major problem when engineering an algorithm to solve an optimization/decision making problem is the effort required to select and tune generic algorithms to solve the specified instances efficiently. The research effort aims to combine multi machine learning algorithms to automatically generate the correct algorithms and parameters combination to efficiently solve new problem instances without the need for expert intervention.
