I am an Associate Professor at the University of Piraeus, and a Research Associate at the National Centre for Scientific Research (NCSR) "Demokritos", leading the Complex Event Recognition group. My research interests lie in the fields of artificial intelligence and distributed systems. Most of my work has been on complex event recognition and (norm-governed) multi-agent systems.
For details about my research, please visit the web page of the Complex Event Recognition group.
VesselAI (2021-2024) aims at realising a holistic, AI-empowered framework for simulating and predicting vessel behaviour and manoeuvring, ship energy design optimisation, autonomous shipping and fleet intelligence.
ARIADNE (2019-2022) is a H2020 project bringing together a novel high-frequency radio architecture, and an Artificial Intelligence network processing and management approach, in order to allow for continuous reliable High Bandwidth connections in the Beyond 5G era.
INFORE (2019-2021) is a H2020 project that aims to address the challenges posed by huge datasets and pave the way for real-time, interactive, extreme-scale analytics and forecasting.
Track & Know (2018-2020) is a H2020 project with a mission to research, develop and exploit a new software framework for increasing the efficiency of Big Data applications in the transport, mobility, motor insurance and health sectors.
datACRON (2016-2019) was a H2020 project that introduced novel methods for detecting threats and abnormal activity in very large numbers of moving entities, operating in large geographic areas.
SPEEDD (2014-2017) was a FP7 European project that developed a prototype for proactive event-driven decision-making: decisions were triggered by forecasting events-whether they correspond to problems or opportunities-instead of reacting to them once they happen.
REVEAL (2013-2016) was a FP7 project that discovered what is being said in social media, and determined how trustworthy that information is, based on predicting contributor impact and how much or to what extent this affects reputation or influence.
RTEC is an open-source Event Calculus implementation optimised for stream reasoning.
