The Knowledge & Data Engineering Systems Group (KDE) is affiliated with the Research Section Information, Data and Analysis (IDA) in the School of Computing Science. KDE group meets the challenges of data-driven and knowledge-driven large-scale intelligent systems for real-world applications. KDE group expertise spans several core areas of data management and intelligent systems.

KDE consists of two Research Labs: Essence and IDEAS.
