Projects

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…

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…

Visual Navigation and Manipulation of Process Knowledge Repositories

COMET project 2010

Our collaboration with AutomationX involves the development of various components for the visualization and manipulation of process-knowledge-spaces that are applied in AX Indigo 5. The problem-space allows for the exploration of different aspects of visualization, e.g. the simultaneous processing and rendering of thousands of objects within the process-knowledge-space or 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…

Brockhaus Planetarium 07

Kplus project 2007

In 2006 a software component enabling visualisation of astronomical information was developed and integrated into the product ”Brockhaus Multimedial”. This component provides many functions for interactive navigation and exploration of diverse celestial objects. The goal of the project is to extend the existing functionality with with several new features while…

Analysing semantic quality of collectivly created knowledge

Kplus project 2007

A buzzword in the Web 2.0 community is collective intelligence. Folksonomies, i.e., collectively created descriptions of different resources, as well as Wikipedia, an online encyclopaedia, owe their success a huge community that creates and maintains information and knowledge within these existing structures. Naturally, these communities possess a high potential regarding…

Graph Mining and visual analysis of graphs

Kplus project 2007

Relations between information objects represent a valuable source of knowledge and information. Special algorithms taking these relations into account, are necessary to exploit this new knowledge. The application areas are diverse, ranging from ranking of retrieval results to social network analysis, to name a few. The described project is a…

Gyro- 3D Knowledge Web Visualisation

Kplus project 2004

"Der Brockhaus" is probably the most famous german encyclopaedia. In its multimedia edition, it offers recherche in 240.000 articles for 320.000 keywords. Information types include images and audio files as well as videos, animations, geographical data and many more. A knowledge web can be displayed for each encyclopaedia entry, showing…

AD-HOC Learning

Kplus project 2003

Teaching and Learning are generally seen as conscious processes. At work these processes are rather unconscious: Experts don't have time to provide their know-how in a structured and advisory form. And novices just want to get information that is necessary to accomplish tasks fast and efficiently. The objective of this…

InfoSky: Visualisation of Hierarchical Knowledge Spaces

Kplus project 2002

Employing today’s standard means of navigation and visualisation for large knowledge spaces, the identification of trends, relations and similarities between documents or search results is no trivial task. Knowledge Management Systems add to the problem by structuring documents in hierarchies, which are even less suited for explorative analysis in standard…

DocClass - Market Study

Kplus project 2002

Main target of this project was to compare the text categorization systems from different companies and the last year developed prototype Know-CAESaC (Classification by Automatic Extraction of Semantics and Content). Focusing on the evaluation for adoption in Knowledge Management Systems, all aspects of text categorization regarding Knowledge Management are covered.…

Meta Knowledge Management

Kplus project 2002

Today's research activities in the area of knowledge management examine how tacit knowledge can be appropriated and codified for organizational memories. The objective is to make people's tacit knowledge explicitly available for the organisation. The other way around - how organizational knowledge can be efficiently used by people is regarded…

Recommend - People-Locator and Recommender Systems

Kplus project 2002

The objective of the recommend project is to meet retrieval needs of users in complex knowledge spaces. Experience has shown that it is important for users to be able to assess which knowledge carriers within the system are "similar" or "complementary" to others. Knowledge carriers can be users as well…

MPEG-4-Technical Study

Kplus project 2001

The rapid convergence of mobile communication, digital broadcasting and network infrastructures calls for rich multimedia content that is adaptive and responsive to the needs of citizens, businesses and public organisations. Context based approaches to production, management and exchange of digital content, together with higher levels of interactivity, are a key…
