Multimedia Knowledge and Social Media Analytics Laboratory

Nikolopoulos Spiros

Dr. Spiros Nikolopoulos received his diploma degree in Computer Engineering and Informatics and the MSc degree in Computer Science & Technology from university of Patras, Greece in 2002 and 2004 respectively. He also holds a PhD degree on Semantic multimedia analysis using knowledge and context, Queen Mary University of London (2012). He is currently a post-doctoral research fellow in Information Technlogies Institute (ITI) at the Centre for Research & Technology Hellas (CERTH). His research interests include image analysis, indexing and retrieval, knowledge-assisted multimedia analysis, social media analysis, smartcity applications and augmented reality. His scientific work has been published in peer-reviewed journals, international conferences and book chapters.
