Our scientific activity is focused on finding, within very large data bases, those objects and data that are better suited to fulfill the information needs of non-expert users. This leads us to consider both effectiveness (i.e. "quality" of results) and efficiency aspects of the search process, in order to scale it to large data volumes. Moreover, we also take into account the need to provide the user with simple but powerful tools, able to smooth the processes of query creation/customization and of result interpretation.

Until now, we applied our techniques to a plethora of different media types (images, videos, text documents, time series, etc.), to genetic data and to patterns obtained through Data Mining processes (associative rules, clusters, etc.).
