Multimedia, Knowledge and Web Technologies Research Area


The Multimedia, Knowledge and Web Technologies research area, following the emerging paradigm of cross-disciplinary research in the media and web worlds, masters education, research and development activities that build upon and innovate through the synergy of web (Semantic Web/Web 2.0/Web 3.0) technologies and knowledge engineering practices with multimedia technologies, aiming at devising next generation intelligent, self-aware/self-adaptable rich media interactive web applications and services deployed and validated in a number of application areas, such as:

  • E-learning, edutainment, serious/educational games
  • Entertainment through gaming (multi-player, online, mobile)
  • DTV/iTV and digital cinema, VoD, web TV, IPTV, video on the web
  • Multimedia archives and digital libraries, rich media web portals, multimedia information systems and search engines, recommender systems
  • Social networking applications, social media (Blogs, YouTube, Flickr, Delicious, Facebook, etc.)
  • Virtual/mixed reality worlds in digital entertainment, art, culture, education, collaboration spaces, etc.
  • E-commerce, e-business, e-government, e-publishing, etc.

Through research in this area we envision to build a solid research base in the areas of multimedia, knowledge and web technologies, so as to elicit from innovation new applications and services, and, by exploiting synergies, prove the synergetic concept in carefully selected application areas.

Students' Views

"My days in Athens and at AIT were more than pleasant and definitely an important milestone in my life. This stay helped me in many things: a) the privilege to live in a small international community gathered in one place, b) gave me the basic skills and expertise to enter the community and daily life’s work. On the other hand, I got the opportunity to meet some great people from different backgrounds who share the same passion with me, I enjoyed very much living with them, the souvlakis in the Lab, not to forget the late night discussions with my colleagues."
