Medienbruchfreies Artefaktmanagement (ART-e-FACT 2013 – 2014)

  • General Information:
  • The project aims for avoiding media discontinuities, i.e. the manual copying of lists into other formats, for the music industry
  • I work on collecting the business processes of the music industry, extracting the used data and metadata and create a exchange format to be used by interfaces of business software for the music industry
  • I work on extracting knowledge from the semantic web and provide these information for the use in other programs as well to create the possibilities, to feed data into the semantic web

Prozessmodellierung Campusfestival Leipzig (ProCamp 2013)

  • General Information:
  • I supervise the enquiry, modeling and creation of process descriptions for organizing the Campusfestival Leipzig. This process models shall be used to lighten the complex work to organize this festival and to help new participants into the job.
  • I work on creation of the wikisite, which shall be host to many process models of different Festivals to share the experiences of the individual organizations.
  • The project is funded by the Open Innovation Initiative of the city of Leipzig

Produktivitätssteigerung durch komponentenbasierte Dienstleistungen (KoProServ, 2010 – 2012)

Domain Specific Corpora (DISCO – in preparation)

  • General information: This projects aims at satisfy the need for domain-specific corpora of certain fields of research like linguistics and natural language processing.
  • The corpus shall be extracted automatically or semi-automatically from the articles of Wikipedia. To identify articles that belong to a certain domain, we calculate the similarity of categories and create a graph from this similarities. This graph is clustered by using the Border-Flow graph clustering algorithm. All articles that belong to categories that are contained in the resulting cluster form the domain-specific corpus.
  • Prototype:

Energieeffiziente Stadt Leipzig (EnEffLE, 2009–2010)

  • General information: This project is part of Wettbewerb Energieeffiziente Stadt, an advancement initiative of the BMBF. The project aims for an integrated implementation concept for an energy efficient city with respect to the demographic change – exemplarily for the eastern part of Leipzig.
  • I work on the conception and creation of a prototype that visualize the “energy truth” to allow a general overview over energy usage and pollution creation. Furthermore it allows to simulate the energy saving potentials from modernization of the buildings in the area.

Cat-e-dia – A browser for wikipedia categories

Pre Built Information Space (Pre BIS, 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 projects document segmentation (chunkifikation) including the belonging browser based segmented document viewer (chunkviewer)
