Welcome to WSL

The Web Science Lab (WSL) at IIIT Bangalore focuses on building models to extract semantics and understand the impact of the web on different facets of human life.

Typical research pursuits of WSL include the following:

  • Mining semantic associations from text and social media data
  • Building computational models for various socio-cognitive phenomena on the web (like formation of collective opinions, creation of celebrities, etc.)
  • Semantic integration of formal web data

WSL is part of the global Web Observatory grid established by the Web Science Trust.

WSL was earlier called the Open Systems Lab (OSL) which had a much broader research scope.

WSL is part of the Center for Data Sciences (CDS) at IIIT Bangalore.
