Research Interests
Prof. Dejing Dou focuses on artificial intelligence, data integration, data mining, information extraction, and health informatics. Information resources distributed across the Internet are hard to process automatically for knowledge acquisition because their data are structurally and semantically heterogeneous. Also, most current AI or machine learning systems are hard to scale to efficiently process large size of data and knowledge. Prof. Dou's research combines knowledge-driven and data-driven approaches to address three critical challenges in processing and managing real world data and knowledge: heterogeneity, reusability, and scalability.
