Welcome to AIRWiki!
AIRWiki is the wiki supporting AIRLab, the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Laboratory at the Department of Electronics and Information of the Politecnico di Milano, the Technical University of Milan (Italy).
AIRWiki was born as a tool for teachers, researchers and students to share information about projects in an easy and quick way. However, it rapidly evolved into a display of all the activities of AIRLab too: you are invited to browse this wiki, to discover what we work on.
Work (generally speaking) is done somewhere, using something and to reach some goal ;-) For the AIRLab, the following links tell you...
At the AIRLab we work on a very broad range of topics, organized in these areas:
- Affective Computing
- Agents - Multiagent Systems - Agencies
- BioSignal Analysis
- Computational Intelligence and Games
- Computer Vision and Image Analysis
- Machine Learning
- Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence
- Social Software and Semantic Web
Research work in the above areas is done within projects. Details about active and finished projects are available at the Projects page. Ongoing projects are covered as soon as enough - and structured enough - information about them is available.
Information about how to set up and manage a project page can be found at Projects - HOWTO.
Many proposals of course or thesis projects for students are currently available at the Project Proposals page. Look there for details.
How can I use this wiki?
AIRWiki is composed of two layers:
- a public layer, readable by everyone on the internet and modifiable by AIRWiki's registered users;
- a private layer, reserved to the registered users (who can read and edit its contents).
The public layer of AIRWiki is relatively stable. The private layer is used by the people working on AIRLab's projects as a repository of all the information related to such projects. Eventually, much of the information in the private layer will be suitably formatted and moved to the public layer.
More information about how to access the private layer and how AIRWiki's layers actually work is available in this page.
How can I contribute?
Contribution to the wiki (i.e. creation and modification of pages) is limited to registered users.
If you are a registered user and have information you want to share (description of what you do, links to useful sources of information, HOWTOs, and so on) just publish them on AIRWiki: it's easy and - dare we say it? - fun! As a guideline, consider putting on AIRWiki everything you would have liked to find there... instead of being forced to find out the hard way. And everything future students who will build upon your work would like to find.
At Projects - HOWTO you can find instructions and guidelines about how to set up a page for the project you work on and how to add new information to it.
Moreover, a wiki always needs help in terms of maintenance, linking between pages, shaping of a structure and so on. And well, in this very moment it also needs a logo ;-) If you want to help please send an email to either migliore (at) elet (dot) polimi (dot) it or eynard (at) elet (dot) polimi (dot) it.
How can I use this semantic wiki?
The page SMW Project Workflow shows all the steps that have to be performed from the creation of a project proposal to the creation and management of a new user account and a project page, using semantic forms.
In the page Dynamic_Page_Generation you can find some directions to use semantic queries, to enrich page content with automatically generated lists and tables.
If you want to know more about how data are organized in this semantic wiki, see the AIRWiki Ontology page.
Things to know for AIRLab users
Especially if you are a new user, don't forget to read the AIRLab survival guide. While we are on the subject of survival (i.e., how to avoid hurting yourself or others): remember that to work in the AIRLab you must know the Safety norms and comply with them.
