Data & Knowledge Engineering Group
The main focus of the research group Data & Knowledge Engineering is the development of methods for interactive information retrieval and exploration. Besides the design of adaptive user interfaces, one research topic is the development of methods to adapt a retrieval system dynamically to the needs and interests of the user. This involves the development of methods, that monitor and analyse the behaviour of individual users to obtain information about their needs and interests. This information will be used to reorganise the structure and the presentation of the considered document collection and search results in order to support users individually. In our offered courses we convey students a basic introduction in used technologies and offer manifold possibilities for collaboration in current research projects.
The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Human-Machine Systems (ICHMS) will be held in Magdeburg, Germany during September 8-10, 2021. ICHMS will provide opportunities for the academic and industrial communities to address new challenges, share solutions, and discuss future research directions in the important area of Human-Machines Systems. ICHMS specifically covers contributions on research related to integrated human/machine systems at multiple scales, and includes areas such as human/machine interaction; cognitive ergonomics and engineering; assistive/companion technologies; human/machine system modeling, testing and evaluation; and fundamental issues of measurement and modeling of human-centered phenomena in engineered systems.
