Information Engineering Laboratory

Flexible information solutions to solve unpredicted problems

The Information Engineering Laboratory’s goal is to build technologies that enable virtual enterprises to respond rapidly to unforeseen information needs across data, documents, and streaming information. We develop better tools for information workers – tools which are intelligent, adaptable and fit for purpose.

Our vision is of a future where users can integrate information technologies to achieve a more valuable result than they would by using the technologies in isolation.
