Smart Data Analytics

The Smart Data Analytics (SDA) research group, led by Prof. Dr. Jens Lehmann, has members from the Institute for Computer Science III at the University of Bonn, the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems (IAIS) and the Institute for Applied Computer Science Leipzig. At its core, the group investigates machine learning techniques ("analytics") using structured knowledge ("smart data"). The group aims at covering the full spectrum of research including theoretical foundations, algorithms, prototypes and industrial applications.

Distributed Semantic Analytics

The research group develops scalable analytics algorithms based on Apache Spark and Apache Flink for analysing large scale datasets by distributing the computational tasks in memory.

Knowledge Graph Analysis

The group focuses on research over knowledge graph, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Semantic Data Management

The group's research focus is on knowledge and data representation, integration, and management based on semantic technologies.

Semantic Question Answering

The use of Semantic Web technologies led to an increasing number of structured data published on the Web. Despite the advances on question answering systems retrieving the desired information from structured sources is still a substantial challenge.

Software Engineering for Data Science

The group researches on how data and software engineering methods can be aligned and how those two closely related areas can benefit from each other.
