Information Systems

The Information Systems group carries out world leading research in Databases and Semantic Technologies. Topics of interest include query languages and optimisation, factorised and probabilistic databases, knowledge representation formalisms and ontology languages, including Datalog, and reasoning systems. A common focus is the area of Big Data, and in particular “data wrangling” — the process of organising, preparing and accessing complex and heterogeneous data. As well as foundational research, the group also maintains strong links with industry, and has applied its research results in areas as diverse as oil and gas, engineering, business analytics, real estate, medicine and life sciences.
