The Artificial Intelligence Laboratory conducts sophisticated information systems research and has made significant contributions in machine learning, visualization, knowledge management, and many other areas. Our current work includes:

Current Research Projects

Cybersecurity: Hacker Web and AZSecure research Cybersecurity: Hacker Web + AZSecure 
With a highly inter-disciplinary team, the Hacker Web project aims to answer the important questions about hacker behaviors, markets, community structure, communication contents, artifacts and cultural differences.
Smart Health and DiabeticLink Research and SilverLink Smart Health and DiabeticLink Research
A major goal for healthcare-related IT is to develop trusted healthcare systems that offer relevant decision support to clinicians and patients, and in particular, provide “just in time, just for me” advice at the point of care.
Data Infrastructure Building Blocks for ISI DIBBs for ISI
This NSF-funded Data Infrastructure Building Blocks pilot demonstration project is intended to make available a wide range of data sets useful for the study of intelligence and security informatics.
Business Intelligence and Analytics Business Intelligence and Analytics
E-commerce applications present unique challenges and opportunities for developing various data mining, text mining, and web mining techniques for business intelligence and knowledge management purposes.
Knowledge Management for Nanotechnology Research and Development Knowledge Mapping for Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology holds the promise of revolutionizing a wide range of application areas and has been recognized by most countries as critical to a nation's future technology competence.
Intelligence and Security Informatics Intelligence and Security Informatics
The development of advanced information technologies, systems, algorithms, and databases for national security-related applications, through an integrated technological, organizational, and policy-based approach.


Previous Research Projects

 Dark Web and Geo Web research Dark Web and GeoPolitical Web Research
The AI Lab Dark Web project is a long-term scientific research program that aims to study and understand the international terrorism (Jihadist) phenomena via a computational, data-centric approach.
