Our Mission

Collibra Research was formed with a mission to advance state-of-the-art computing and solve wicked problems through technological innovation. Its key responsibility is to continuously envision and develop research capabilities such as talent, technology, financing and knowledge.

Research Areas

Human-computer Interaction

Human-computer Interaction

Design and use of computer technology, such as augmented reality and conversational bots, focused on enhancing the interfaces between people (users) and computers.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence

Harnessing the explosion of digital data and computational power with advanced algorithms to enable collaborative and natural interactions between people and machines that extend the human ability to sense, learn and understand.

Human Language Processing

Human Language Processing

Advancing the state of the art in natural language processing, dialog systems and spoken language understanding to help computers master the nuance and complexity of human communication, the currency of collaboration.

Behavioral Data Economics

Behavioral Data Economics

Studying the production, distribution, and consumption of data services and products. Data Economics focuses on the behavior and interactions of data-economic agents such as data subjects, -owners, and -processors) and how data economies work and how it contributes to cost, value and risk creation.

Decentralized Systems

Decentralized Systems

Studying how complex behavior emerges through the work of lower level components operating on local information, not the instructions of any commanding influence, to drive consensus, trust and risk-free data sharing at very high scale; and evaluating technologies that can help generate such systems such as blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, smart contracts and forensics analysis.

Science is in Our DNA

Collibra is a world leader in technological innovation, building some of the most important platforms for data and AI governance, Collibra Data Governance Center. Over the past ten years, Collibra has been committed to academic research and its application in industry. As a spin-off from the Laboratory for Semantic Technology and Applications Research (STARLab) at the VUB university in Brussels, this commitment continues today. Our unwavering desire to push the boundaries has shifted our focus to systems of engagement and systems of intelligence that can ignite network effects on our platform.

Partnering with Academia

Partnerships enables us to scale and expand our research capabilities across multiple areas, including human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, human language technologies, data behavioral economics and decentralized data systems.

Science-as-a-Service

Being a university spin-off, Collibra Research can rely on a proven network of research institutes and universities to collaborate and deliver excellent research to our innovation-seeking customers.

Activities

Collibra

Collibra to launch new BlockLAB, a new blockchain research laboratory (September 2018)
In collaboration with the San Diego Supercomputer Center and other leading technology providers (AEEC, Dell Technologies, IBM and Intel), Collibra has launched BlockLAB, a new blockchain research laboratory formed to explore and evaluate the principal technologies and business use cases in blockchains, distributed ledgers, digital transactions and smart contracts. The BlockLAB initiative is part of Collibra’s broader research efforts around rapidly evolving spaces like AI/ML, IOT, Data Skills Gaps, and Cloud to guide customers in driving responsible data consumption and business value. Investing in the BlockLAB allows Collibra to stay ahead of industry trends, identify cutting-edge technologies that could be incorporated into our solutions, and guide our customers along the way.

ODBASE 2018

ODBASE 2018 | The 17th International Conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics (October 2018)
Pieter De Leenheer, cofounder and Chief Science Officer at Collibra will deliver the keynote for 2018 edition of this scientific conference.
Title talk: “Data governance: the new imperative to democratize data science”

We live in the age of abundant data. Through technology, more data is available, and the processing of that data easier and cheaper than ever before. Data science emerged from an unparalleled fascination to empirically understand and predict societies businesses and markets. Yet there is an understated risk inherent to democratizing data science such as data spills, cost of data exploration, and blind trust in unregulated, incontestable and oblique models. In their journey to unlock competitive advantage and maximize value from the application of big data, it is vital that data leaders find the right balance between value creation and risk exposure. To realize the true value of this wealth of data, data leaders must not act impulsively, but rethink assumptions, processes, and approaches to managing, governing, and stewarding that data. And to succeed, they must deliver credible, coherent, and trustworthy data and data access clearing mechanisms for everyone who can use it. As data becomes the most valuable resource, data governance delivers an imperative certification for any business to trust one another, but also increasingly sets a precondition for any citizen to engage in a trustworthy and endurable relationship with a company or government.
