Social Data Management

While progress has been made in the area of personalized search in social applications, more remains to be done in order to address users' needs in practice. The social Web blurs today the distinction between search, recommendation, and advertising (three paradigms for information access that have been so far considered mostly in separation). Our research in this area strives to find better adapted and scalable ways to answer information needs in the social Web, often by techniques at the intersection of databases, information retrieval, and data mining.
