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

"Away from AIT, life in Greece is a combination of the East and the West. The beautiful seaside, the wide variety of islands, the northern forests, the ancient monuments, the Greek food, the Greek culture, the warm hearted Greeks and the nice weather around the year all form an enjoyable experience of Greece. All of that made me feel as though I was on a long vacation, side by side to my studies at AIT."

Osama Alrabadi, MSITT 2007 (Jordan)
