Milan earned his PhD in Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) at Sorbonne University in Paris in 2012 with highest distinctions (Convergence entre Web Social et Web Sémantique. Application à l’innovation à l’aide du Web).
He authored numerous publications and participated in international research collaborations exploring different Artificial Intelligence topics, mostly the use of Data, Semantic Web and different forms of intelligence in the domains of Travel, Personalization, Human Resources and Innovation. My main focus is getting computers to become smarter companions to humans; going beyond basic reasoning and using user-generated, social media data and knowledge graphs to reach the next level of computer intelligence.
Milan participated in organization of parts of A-Level international conferences in his domain, as a Challenges Coordinator at ESWC 2014 et 2015, and as co-chair of the Making Sense of Microposts Workshop, an event that attracted researchers-participants from all around the world ( in 2011 at ESWC, and from 2012-2015 at WWW – the largest conference dedicated to the Web). In 2018, he was invited to give a keynote speach to the research community at ESWC.
Milan serves as a member of program committees of distinguished intonational conferences such as: World Wide Web / The Web Conference (2017, 2018), International Semantic Web Conference – In Use Track (2011,2012,2013,2014), Web Science Conference (2012), ACM Hypertext and Social Media (2012), Extended Semantic Web Conference (2011,2012,2013,2014), The 7th International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM) 2013, I-SEMANTICS (2009-2014), IADIS Information Systems (2009,2010), Workshop on User Profile Data on the Social Semantic Web (2011), Workshop on Trust and Privacy on the Social and Semantic Web (2010), Interplay between Conceptual Modeling and Human-Computer Interaction (2013)
