Welcome to the DATAi Research Group

The Intelligent Data Analysis (DATAi) research group has been formed in 2014, and is based at School of Engineering of the Pablo de Olavide University of Seville (Spain). The mainly research areas of the group are big data, machine learning and systems for data management. We participate in different projects such as the development of a support decision system within a project run in collaboration with the PigChamp Pro Europa company. We are also actively collaborating with research groups from both the Pablo de Olavide University, as well as from other national and international research institutions.


The mission of DATAi is to carry out ground breaking research in the field of data analysis.

Developing algorithms for extracting knowledge from massive, and possibly unstructured data.


We seek to advance in the field of data management, with the aim of providing tools for efficiently storing and accessing such huge amount of data.


In order to achieve the above stated objective, we use and develop Machine Learning techniques, and pursue collaborations with relevant stakeholders.


Nowadays, the need to extract knowledge from data is of tremendous importance. In fact, there are numerous fields that produces massive amount of data. Examples of such fields are astronomy, chemistry, genomic, credit card transactions, Internet traffic, social networks or information processing, only to name but a few. To add complexity to this scenario, in many cases, the data generated do not have a homogeneous representation.

In order to face this reality, many resources are being invested with the aim of finding solutions to the this phenomenon. The term “Big Data” is the one that best describes of all this unstoppable grow, availability and use of information. Due to the characteristics of this data, its management and analysis becomes almost impossible with traditional methods.

From this observation, it becomes evident that there is a need of developing solutions that would allow to both manage the data in an efficient way and to extract useful knowledge from such a huge amount of information. These two aspects represent our main research focus.
