“Let there be neither dissatisfaction with oneself – for that would be pusillanimity; – nor self-satisfaction, for that would be stupidity.”

– Baltasar Gracián

Projects

As governments worldwide continue to release vast amounts of textual information, the need for efficient and insightful tools to extract, interpret and present this data has become increasingly critical. Towards solving this issue, we present the Bundestags-Mine: an environment that periodically retrieves pertinent data from the German parliament, parses and analyzes it using pipelines for natural language processing, and then displays the results in a web application that is publicly accessible. Bundestags-Mine helps to extract key information from parliamentary documents in a visually appealing matter for many use cases. For instance, the tool can be leveraged by journalists for news detection, lawyers for compliance checking, linguists for discourse analysis, and the broad public to inform themselves about the positions of political party members on a topic.

Viki LibraRy, is a first implementation for generating and exploring online information based on hypertext systems in a three-dimensional environment using virtual reality. Thereby a virtual library, based on Wikipedia, is created, in which Rooms are dynamically created with data, which is provided via a RESTful backend. In these Rooms the user can browse through all kind of different articles of the category in the form of Books. In addition, users can access different Rooms, through virtual portals. Beyond that, the explorations can be done alone or collaboratively, using Ubiq.
