Community Projects

ALOE: The aim of the ALOE (Assisted Linked data cOnsumption Engine) project is to provide an engine for the semi-automatic generation of consumption configurations.
BOA: The “BOotstrapping linked datA” (BOA) project aims to provide means to extract RDF from text by using natural-language patterns learned from the Linked Open Data cloud.
BorderFlow is a general-purpose graph clustering application that computes a soft clustering of the input graph according to the Border Flow algorithm.
CVK: The Clustering and Visualization Kit (CVK) is a graph clustering and visualization framework that allows the rapid development and evaluation of novel graph clustering algorithms via a simple yet efficient plugin architecture.
DISCO is an interactive online application for the extraction of domain-specific corpora for tagged data sources. The current implementation works with the english version of Wikipedia as background data.
FOX: The Federated knOwledge eXtraction Framework uses ensemble learning for the generating high-quality RDF out of unstructured datas sources.
LIMES: The “LInk discovery framework for MEtric Spaces” (LIMES) is a time-efficient and lossfree matcher for instances from SPARQL endpoints. It relies on sampling to run signifcantly faster than conventional mappers.
SAIM: The idea behind SAIM is provide means for the automatic discovery of link specifications for Link Discovery. For this purpose, it combines stable matching, supervised machine learning and active learning approaches.
SIUQ: This project aims at providing approaches to keyword queries for the Semantic Web.

Financed Projects

LInk discovery framework for MEtric Spaces (LIMES++, 2011)

  • General Information: LIMES is a link discovery framework for the Web of Data. LIMES++ is facilitated by an Amazon and aims at implementing a cloud version of the LIMES framework.
  • I am the principal investigator for this project for InfAI

Semantic Content Management Systems (SCMS, 2009–2012)

  • General Information: The aim of SCMS is to integrate Semantic Content and Knowledge Engineering into CMS and to deploy these solutions in real-world use cases including news mining in the energy and tourism sectors.
  • I am the principal investigator for this project for InfAI

Pre Built Information Space (PreBIS, 2002–2006)

  • General information: The project sponsored by the German Ministry for Education and Research and was concerned with developing strategies for the context-dependent information supply of knowledge workers.
  • I worked on the conception, design, implementation and testing of the project including the intelligent information retrieval kernel, semantic query expansion, implicite feedback, ...

Haus der fünf Kontinente (HFK, 2003–2004)

  • General information: The goal of the project is to give general information on the various steps involved in the process of gaining admission to study at a German university.
  • I was mainly involved in the conception and implementation of the web-based information server.

Personalisierte Interaktive Audio-, Voice- und Video-Informationen für Portal- und Auswertungsanwendungen (Pi-AVIda, 2002)

  • General information: The project was sponsored by the German Ministry for Education and Research and was concerned with the development of techniques for the segmentation and classification of multimedia data streams for portal applications. Important aspects were the personalization and the device-dependent streaming of retrieved data.
  • I was involved in the project during my internship at the Fraunhofer IAO and was charged with research work on Information Retrieval strategies and standards for multimedia metadata
