Projects

Visual Analysis of Large Semantic Graphs

COMET project 2012

The main goal addressed within the project includes the development of visual analytics methods, i.e. algorithmic and visual techniques, for visualization, navigation and analysis of large semantic graphs. Particular focus is on addressing the issue of scaling to large data sets, for example through aggregation and level of detail techniques,…

WIQ-EI: Web Information Quality Evaluation Initiative

EU project 2011

The mission of WIQ-EI is to develop mechanisms for estimating the quality of textual Web documents and to evaluate these mechanisms for their effectiveness and efficiency. This will be done on a global scale by organising researcher exchanges between renowned organisations from European and third countries which have their expertise…

DIVINE

national project 2011

Content providers and analysts increasingly rely on combining multiple data sources to build comprehensive, up-to-date, interlinked information spaces. Techniques for integrating data sources and tracking their evolution are crucial for achieving these goals. DIVINE (Dynamic Integration and Visualization of Information from Multiple Evidence Sources) focuses on developing such techniques, where…

MIRROR – Reflective Learning at Work

EU project 2010

MIRROR will enable employees to learn lessons from their own and others experiences. Dr. Stefanie Lindstaedt from the Know-Center is the scientific leader of this innovative project. MIRROR is an EU funded project in the Technology-Enhanced Learning Unit. Its duration is four years (July 2010 – June 2014) with a…

Semantic Network Analysis in Large Heterogeneous Repositories

COMET project 2010

The goal of this project, which is performed in cooperation with m2n, is to enable the retrieval, analysis and visualisation of large, heterogeneous, strongly interlinked data repositories. To achieve this, extraction methods were developed which, under consideration of existing knowledge bases, enable semantic enrichment of large heterogeneous data sets. Using…

Topic Seismograph

COMET project 2010

The User Generated Content (UGC) Seismograph project aimed to provide for Kabel TV Wien, a local information provider, a pilot system for analysis of UGC with regional focus. Within the project a number of Web sources, such as Standard Online and ORF Online, have been crawled and analyzed, whereby the…

Innovation and Knowledge Services for eConsulting

COMET project 2009

The objective of this project was to develop, implement and roll out a working Web2.0 prototype of a community-based innovation services platform. Focus of these services is to offer contextualized information, people recommender services and contextualized collaboration services for community members. Additionally, the community shall be able to provide their…

Corporate Web 2.0 – Socio-Technological Impacts

COMET project 2009

The present strategic research project is a cross-section project which prepares results that are relevant for all other Web 2.0 related technological or conceptual activities at the Know-Center. Its focus is on monitoring web 2.0 trends, evaluations and the systematic classification of web 2.0 applications in enterprises. Several case studies…

Dynamic Ontology Matching

COMET project 2009

The goal of the MIMOS – Know-Center cooperation project is the development of semi-automatic methods for ontology mediation. In ontology mediation appropriate concepts from different ontologies are matched with the goal of enabling interoperability between these ontolgies. A client-server based solution, the Semantic Mediation Tool (SMT), should serve as a…

MISTRAL- Measurable Intelligent and Reliable Semantic Extraction and Retrieval of Multimedia Data

Kplus project 2006

Multimedia data has a rich and complex structure in terms of inter- and intra-document references and can be an extremely valuable source of information. However, this potential is severely limited until and unless effective methods for semantic extraction and semantic-based cross-media exploration and retrieval can be devised. Today’s leading-edge techniques…

Software Reuse

Kplus project 2005

The goal of the project was to analyze the internal knowledge exchange in a small software development company, and to find ways to improve it. The focus was on knowledge exchange in software development and in customer support. Three instruments were used in the analysis phase: KnowFlow - developed by…

KnowMiner - Multipurpose, Cross-media, Knowledge Discovery Framework

Kplus project 2004

The KnowMiner framework is developed further by integrating new retrieval, classification and clustering methods, as well as different processing modules for text, picture and audio data. As in the past year the focus is on hierarchically structured data repositories, enrichment of knowledge entities with metadata and development of techniques for…

E-Learning as a Completion of Traditional Training Methods in Computing Instruction

Kplus project 2004

This project continues the past three years work which focused on the upgrading and consolidation of TDSP as a provider of high-level, broadly ranged courses based on blended learning. In 2004 two different fields are in the centre of attention. Emphasis in this year’s project was on analysing expert-level training…
