The rapid growth of the Web has generated a wealth of information for individuals and organizations, to the extreme of overloading its users with information. This phenomenon has created the pressing need for turning this information into actionable knowledge according to the requirements of each individual. This need represents the major motivation behind the R&D activities of SKEL, since its establishment at the beginning of '90s. SKEL researchers combine their efforts to develop knowledge technologies that will enable the efficient, cost-effective and user-adaptive management and presentation of information. SKEL work focuses on intelligent systems and services for the Web and the Semantic Web, and more specifically: web content collection and extraction for specific thematic areas, knowledge discovery from web usage data, creation and maintenance of ontologies to support the collection and extraction tasks, natural interaction with web-based information systems.
