Stan Matwin, Ph.D.
I am a Distinguished University Professor and Director of the Text Analysis and Machine Learning (TAMALE) group, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Ottawa. I am also affiliated with the Institute for Computer Science, Polish Academy of Sciences.
My broad research interests include: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Text Mining, Bioinformatics, and Data Privacy.
Another field of interest is technology transfer: the process of interaction between university-based research and the industrial R & D. I am involved with the Centre of Excellence for Communications and Information Technology, a leading Ontario technology transfer organization.
With the other co-founders of Devera Logic, we are working on an exciting startup in the area policy management. We have have developed patented technologies that help remove some of the complexities of managing access policies, and alleviate the difficulties of using XML-like policy representations.
I am a Fellow of the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence and of the Canadian Artificial Intelligence Association. I am committed to the idea of international cooperation in research and education. As an example, with colleagues in Brazil we are building a system in which advanced data mining technologies will assist local fishermen in their daily work.
