- Database management, machine learning and data mining became central issues in recent years. The laboratory covers a wide range of relevant topics and systems, from relational database management systems, over cloud-based big data systems to data curation, business intelligence and machine learning tools. The lab infrastructure supporting includes a high performance server, a storage server and powerful workstations.
- Concerning the application areas, our long-term vision is supporting the self-organisation of (local) small communities and positive social contacts by technology, especially community media systems. Therefore, cooperation with sociologists, psychologist and media professionals is crucial for us. We have been involved in assessing the effect of an audio-based social media system on (offline) social networks and the analysis of social networks among clinical pastoral care professionals. Currently, we are working on speech-music playlist generation, a technical precondition for customized, audio social media.
