LASIGE

LASIGE

LASIGE is a research unit at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, in the field of Computer Science and Engineering. LASIGE gathers experts from several areas of the computing field, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, concurrency, distributed computing, embedded and cyber-physical systems, human-centred computing, information systems, information retrieval, security and privacy, software validation and verification, and applied computing to life and medical sciences. LASIGE’s activities are organised around six lines of excellence supported by key quality indicators.

Accessibility and Ageing

Accessibility and Ageing

LASIGE presents a longstanding record of research contributions in the area of accessible computing, in assessing, designing, and developing technologies for people with different abilities. The Accessibility and Ageing (AA) research line gathers all the contributions that seek to evaluate or design interfaces for people with disabilities, older adults, or people suffering from situational impairments.

Cyber‐Physical Systems

Cyber‐Physical Systems

The LASIGE research line Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) investigates the functional, human, trustworthiness and timing aspects of cyber-physical systems. This research line focuses on system solutions for offline verification and online monitoring of security- and safety-critical embedded real-time systems, mechanisms for efficient and adaptive interactions among entities in specific scenarios, protocols for autonomous driving scenarios, and visual analytics techniques and tools for exploring heterogeneous datasets from cyber-physical and smart systems, making them more transparent to end-users.

Data and Systems Intelligence

Data and Systems Intelligence

The research line on Data and Systems Intelligence (DSI) strives to devise innovative solutions for large‐scale data problems and complex systems. DSI intersects areas of recent high visibility and impact, such as machine learning and data mining, but also the general fields of artificial intelligence. This highly multidisciplinary research line aims at advancing research and knowledge in the recent flagship application and research domain of data science, web science, and network science.

Health and Biomedical Informatics

Health and Biomedical Informatics

LASIGE presents a longstanding record of research contributions in the area of Health & Biomedical Informatics (HBI), by providing innovative solutions for processing biological and medical data, and for supporting the discovery of new biomedical insights. This research line aims to encompass all the scientific work in LASIGE where informatics plays a fundamental role in creating new knowledge in life and health sciences.

Resilient Distributed and Networked Systems

Resilient Distributed and Networked Systems

Resilient Distributed and Networked Systems (RDNS) investigates models, protocols and architectures that are suitable for applications with strong dependability requirements, namely applications that needto remain operational despite accidental faults or malicious attacks. The solutions being developed cover a diverse set of objectives, enforcing the prevention, detection and tolerance of failures. The kind of environments that are being contemplated include cloud deployments, highly dynamic and geographically distributed networks, mobile distributed computing, web systems and applications, smart grids and other critical infrastructures.

Reliable Software Systems

Reliable Software Systems

Reliable Software Systems (RSS) focuses on modelling techniques and formal analysis approaches to software system structure and behaviour. It aims at enhancing the software engineering practice and particularly the quality of the software.
Its activity ranges from developing theoretical models, languages and techniques to the development of tools that can be used in the real-world software development process, with a clear impact on the workflow of developers and the industry in general. RSS centers its attention on the verification and validation of software, increasing the confidence of developers in their code, especially in complex and error-prone scenarios, such as concurrent and distributed programs.
