I studied Computer Science at the University of Applied Sciences in Frankfurt (FH) from 2005 until 2009. In 2009 I joint the masters program, Intelligent Systems, again at the same University of Applied Sciences, and I completed this in September 2011.

Since February 2012, I have worked in Text Technology Lab at the Goethe University in Frankfurt as a scientific staff member.

Machine learning, especially neural networks and learning-classifier systems, artificial intelligence, graph theory, Semantic Web, data privacy, programming…

    [Abstract] [Poster][BibTeX]

    We present Resources2City Explorer (R2CE), a tool for representing file systems as interactive, walkable virtual cities. R2CE visualizes file systems based on concepts of spatial, 3D information processing. For this purpose, it extends the range of functions of conventional file browsers considerably. Visual elements in a city generated by R2CE represent (relations of) objects of the underlying file system. The paper describes the functional spectrum of R2CE and illustrates it by visualizing a sample of 940 files.

    [Abstract] [BibTeX]

    BIOfid is a specialized information service currently being developed to mobilize biodiversity data dormant in printed historical and modern literature and to offer a platform for open access journals on the science of biodiversity. Our team of librarians, computer scientists and biologists produce high-quality text digitizations, develop new text-mining tools and generate detailed ontologies enabling semantic text analysis and semantic search by means of user-specific queries. In a pilot project we focus on German publications on the distribution and ecology of vascular plants, birds, moths and butterflies extending back to the Linnaeus period about 250 years ago. The three organism groups have been selected according to current demands of the relevant research community in Germany. The text corpus defined for this purpose comprises over 400 volumes with more than 100,000 pages to be digitized and will be complemented by journals from other digitization projects, copyright-free and project-related literature. With TextImager (Natural Language Processing & Text Visualization) and TextAnnotator (Discourse Semantic Annotation) we have already extended and launched tools that focus on the text-analytical section of our project. Furthermore, taxonomic and anatomical ontologies elaborated by us for the taxa prioritized by the project’s target group - German institutions and scientists active in biodiversity research - are constantly improved and expanded to maximize scientific data output. Our poster describes the general workflow of our project ranging from literature acquisition via software development, to data availability on the BIOfid web portal (http://biofid.de/), and the implementation into existing platforms which serve to promote global accessibility of biodiversity data.

    [Abstract] [Poster][BibTeX]

    We present the Stolperwege app, a web-based framework for ubiquitous modeling of historical processes. Starting from the art project Stolpersteine of Gunter Demnig, it allows for virtually connecting these stumbling blocks with information about the biographies of victims of Nazism. According to the practice of public history, the aim of Stolperwege is to deepen public knowledge of the Holocaust in the context of our everyday environment. Stolperwege uses an information model that allows for modeling social networks of agents starting from information about portions of their life. The paper exemplifies how Stolperwege is informationally enriched by means of historical maps and 3D animations of (historical) buildings.

    [Abstract] [BibTeX]

    Text corpora are structured sets of text segments that can be annotated or interrelated. Expanding on this, we can define a database of images as an iconographic multimodal corpus with annotated images and the relations between images as well as between images and texts. The Goethe-Museum in Frankfurt holds a significant collection of art work and texts relating to Goethe’s Faust from the early 19th century until the present. In this project we create a database containing digitized items from this collection, and extend a tool, the ImageDB in the eHumanities Desktop, to annotate and provide relations between resources. This article gives an overview of the project and provides some technical details. Furthermore we show newly implemented features, explain the challenge of creating an ontology on multimodal corpora and give a forecast for future work.

    [Abstract] [BibTeX]

    This paper provides a theoretical assessment of gestures in the context of authoring image-related hypertexts by example of the museum information system WikiNect. To this end, a first implementation of gestural writing based on image schemata is provided (Lakoff in Women, fire, and dangerous things: what categories reveal about the mind. University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1987). Gestural writing is defined as a sort of coding in which propositions are only expressed by means of gestures. In this respect, it is shown that image schemata allow for bridging between natural language predicates and gestural manifestations. Further, it is demonstrated that gestural writing primarily focuses on the perceptual level of image descriptions (Hollink et al. in Int J Hum Comput Stud 61(5):601–626, 2004). By exploring the metaphorical potential of image schemata, it is finally illustrated how to extend the expressiveness of gestural writing in order to reach the conceptual level of image descriptions. In this context, the paper paves the way for implementing museum information systems like WikiNect as systems of kinetic hypertext authoring based on full-fledged gestural writing.

    [Abstract] [BibTeX]

    Challenged by the growing societal demand for Ambient                    Assistive Living (AAL) technologies, we are dedicated                    to develop intelligent technical devices which are able                    to communicate with human persons in a truly human-like                    manner. The core of the project is a simulation                    environment which enables the development of conscious                    learning semiotic agents which will be able to assist                    human persons in their daily life. We are reporting                    first results and future perspectives.
