Alle Themen können, sofern nicht explizit anders angegeben, im Rahmen einer Bachelorarbeit, Projektarbeit oder Masterarbeit bearbeitet werden. Der Umfang wird entsprechend angepasst. Die genaue Aufgabenstellung kann in der Regel an Vorlieben und Vorwissen der Interessenten angepasst werden. Es können auch gerne eigene Ideen vorgeschlagen werden. Ansprechpartnerin ist, sofern nicht anders angegeben, Birgitta König-Ries. Die hier […]

 

According to the Oxford Dictionary, provenance is defined as “the source or origin of an object; its history or pedigree”. Provenance of a data product is its description along with the explanation of how and why it got to the current state. Machine Learning (ML) is an emerging tool currently being applied in various application […]

 

We are looking for a new colleague to join the group as soon as possible. The position is addressing the interpretability and interoperability of field data using Semantic Web techniques and is offered in the context of a joint research project of the Fusion group at the Heinz Nixdorf Chair for Distributed Information Systems at […]

 

This position is part of the Cluster of Excellence “Balance of the Microverse”. It will focus on the development of software and tools for the management of multimodal data in the Cluster. The position will be jointly supervised by Prof. Dr. Birgitta König-Ries and Prof. Dr. Christoph Steinbeck and will be associated with the Michael-Stifel-Center […]

 

BEXIS 2 is a free and open source software supporting researchers in managing their data throughout the entire data life cycle. BEXIS 2 has a lot of core data management features supporting the FAIR data principles. Beside data management features additional functionalities could enhance the system usage. Some modules with additional components are already developed. […]

 

Exploratory Search Approaches go beyond the classical keyword search and allow users to search for relevant data interactively by using different filters or additional incorporated sources. Given is a semantic search over biological (meta) data with search results including ontological concepts, e.g., Schima Superba (a subtropical tree in China) is linked to the NCBITAXON ontology, […]

 

Semantic Annotations are additional information on textual or structrued data that link terms to ontological concepts. This helps to incorporate additional information into the textual context. This text mining technique is getting increasing attention since it is required in text mining applications, semantic search or question answering systems. A main issue in creating semantic annotations […]

 

Query results have traditionally been represented in tabular form. This is mainly because queries are dominantly used to operate on relational data. Also, visual appearance of these tabular representations make them easier to understand. In scientific data-intensive researches where data changes frequently, queries are ad-hoc, and selecting the right portion of the incoming data to answer the research […]

 

Everybody dealing with the Semantic Web repeatedly comes across the terms IRI, URI, URL and URN. Nevertheless, I frequently observe that there is some confusion about their exact meaning. And, of course, others noticed that as well (see e.g. [RFC3305] or search on Google). To be honest, I even was confused myself at the outset. […]

 

One of the biggest issues of our publication culture is that our publications only publish a summary of the final result of a long project. This means that we only put well-polished graphs describing (some) of our experimental results into our publications. However, the algorithms, input datasets, benchmarks, raw result datasets, as well as scripts […]
