-The expertise group on Databases (DB) studies ​the design, implementation ​and analysis of Web-based information systems ​and applicationsThis includes a study of basic supporting technologies ​such as storageindexing and querying of semi-structured ​data (often represented as xml or rdf)user modeling ​and adaptive hypermediato create automatically personalized web experiencesweb analytics, data mining ​and interactive visualization ​of data extracted from web usage. Some successes from recent years include Adaptive Hypermedia Application Model (AHAM)later followed by the Generic Adaptation Framework (GAF) and the Adaptive Hypermedia Architecture (AHA!) followed by the Generic Adaptation Language and Engine (GALE). Adaptive Web-based systems have been applied in different application areas including e-learninge-businesse-culture ​and e-entertainment. Some noteworthy projects were the NWO CATCH project CHIP on Cultural Heritage Information Presentation and Personalization (a collaboration with the Telematics Institute and the Rijksmuseum),​ the ITEA Passepartous project on innovations in television ​and the GRAPPLE EU FP7 project on the integration ​of adaptive learning environments with learning ​management systems. Our most noteworthy recent industrial collaboration is with the company Adversitement BV with which we study Web Analytics ​and the optimization of web experiences by analyzing web log dataOther recent activities include studying Learning Analytics through educational data mining and learning dashboards, and indexing and querying over big dataThe WE group is at the core of the new Data Science initiative ​of the TU/e. The DB group is headed by dr. George Fletcher.+ 
 +Data-intensive systems are crucial in modern computing, analytics, and data science.  ​The expertise group on Databases (DB) studies ​core engineering ​and foundational challenges in scalable ​and effective management of big data ​Current research in the DB group focuses primarily on problems in the management ​of massive graphs ​such as social networkslinked open data, financial networks, ​and biological networks. ​ Expertise within the group includes query language design and foundationsquery optimization and evaluationdata analytics, data integration, ​and personalization. ​ In addition to dissemination ​of research results in the leading scientific venues in the data management field, the DB group impacts ​the broader community through open-source software developmenttraining and mentoring of early-career scientists, industrial R&D collaborations, and serving ​on international efforts such as the LDBC Graph Query Language Standardization Task Force. 
 +DB group investigations into both the theory ​and engineering ​of data management systems ​are inspired by real-world application scenarios in close cooperation ​with public-sector ​and industrial research partners ​Academic partners of the group range across leading research groups in Europe, Asia, and North America ​Recent collaborators include Oracle Labs, Neo4j, University ​of Toronto, National University ​of Singapore, University of Lyon 1, and TU Dresden.
