Knowledge & Data Engineering
Chair donated by the Hertie Foundation
The research unit Knowledge & Data Engineering in the Department of Electrical Engineering/Computer Science was new created in connection with the introduction of a course of studies in Computer Science and started on April 1st, 2004 with the establishment of a donated chair of the non-profit Hertie Foundation.
The research unit deals with the organizational and technical support of knowledge processes. Our vision is the Ubiquitous Web, where user-generated knowledge from the Web 2.0 and observations of the physical and social environment of the user are integrated, then enriched by means of Knowledge Discovery methods, and finally formalized within the Semantic Web, in order to support the human in all his purposes.
The research unit Knowledge & Data Engineering is member in the Interdisciplinary Research Center for Information System Design (ITeG) at the University of Kassel and in the L3S Research Center.
