The selection of the participating institutes aims mainly at the aspect of complementarity. While the FIIT STU is active mostly in the field of methods of data analysis and machine learning and focuses on the web as the main information space, the FEI TUKE focuses among other things on the natural language processing. The researchers from the FiF UK are competent in empirical processing of data about human behaviour and its interpretation and they are equally well skilled and experienced with live experiments. Hence the participating institutes reinforce each other in some topics and complement each other in the rest.

This multidisciplinary project is solved by three partner institutes:

Faculty of Informatics and Information Technologies, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (FIIT STU)

Faculty of Informatics and Information Technologies (FIIT) is one of the seven faculties of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (STU).

In spite of the fact, that FIIT is a new faculty, STU has long-term experiences in the area of IT and has achieved several substantial results in this area.

Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics of the Technical University of Košice (FEI TUKE)

The main objective of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics is to provide higher education based on creative scientific research, particularly in research areas such as computer science, cybernetics and artificial intelligence, telecommunications, electronics, electrical engineering, automotive electronics and electrical power engineering. These activities are ensured by 157 university teachers including 29 professors, 35 associate professors, 89 assistant professors and 4 researchers. To this day, the faculty has educated more than 14,000 graduates.

Faculty of Arts, Comenius University in Bratislava (FiF UK)
