Data analytics, where huge amounts of data are analyzed in order to extract useful and actionable information, has become a crucial activity for many organizations. The aim of the project Data-driven technologies for marketing, information, news and enterprises (DATAMINE) is to develop efficient data-driven techniques for automatically generating personalized content of high-quality.


Datamine is part of the regional research programme, which is a collaboration between Jönköping University, Region Jönköpings län och the business sector.

For high-tech and innovation-driven companies, data analytics is a vital component in several processes driving long-term success. A key aspect of these processes is the ability to efficiently store, process and analyze data.

Increased data collection and analysis capabilities present unique challenges and possibilities, and successful integration of data analytics into different processes enables competitive advantages to be gained and maintained. The project is addressing industry-relevant problems, as identified by the three industrial partners Hall Media, Stena Line and Pdb to empower novel and cutting-edge services.


The purpose of this research project is to develop efficient data-driven techniques for automatically generating personalized content of high-quality, both in the form of news and adverts. The project will also address key questions related to company strategies when deciding to employ data analytics for decision support.

Expected results

Research findings, typically manifested as algorithms or methods, will be deployed as software solutions and evaluated at the partnering companies: Hall Media, Stena Line and Pdb.
