The Intelligent Data Analysis lab

IDA is a research team at the Department of Computer Science of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, CTU in Prague.

In IDA, we try to make computers discover knowledge in data. To this end we develop data mining and machine learning algorithms helping us detect regularities (frequent patterns, strong associations), construct predictive models, and ultimately identify the phenomenon that generated the observed data.

Our expertise includes the strong paradigms of inductive logic programming and relational data mining, overcoming the deficiency of traditional data mining tools which constrain their analysis to a mere single table of a multi-relational database. Our main application area is bioinformatics, mainly genomics.
