Projects using DynaQ technology
ADIB - Adaptive Information Support (2005-2007)
Based on an integrated task management system, ADIB aims to develop and test a tool which adaptively and pro-actively provides information and know-how for knowledge intensive tasks.
ADIB uses DynaQ for achieving a task-specific, dynamic query environment for user in his knowledge intensive task. Users start their search from the task management system and explore the results in their task context. Found documents can be attached and used queries can be saved to the respective task.
Topics of the project AIM (Adaptive, Interactive, and Multi-Perspective Document Management & Knowledge Navigation) are the design and implementation of a framework for the support of adaptive, interactive and multiperspective knowledge management as well as the application of this framework to different domains. AIM is part of the DASMOD (Dependable Adaptive Systems and Mathematical Modeling) Cluster of Excellence at the University of Kaiserslautern (funded by the Government of Rhineland-Palatinate). Participating research groups are the DFKI "Knowledge Management" group and the Fraunhofer ITWM "Adaptive Systems" section.
Human thinking and knowledge work is heavily dependent on sensing the outside world. One important part of this perception-oriented sensing is the human visual system. It is well-known that our visual knowledge disclosure – that is, our ability to think, abstract, remember, and understand visually – and our skills to visually organize are extremely powerful. The overall vision of @VISOR is to realize an individually customizable virtual world which inspires the user’s thinking, enables the economical usage of his perceptual power, and adheres to a multiplicity of personal details with respect to his thought process and knowledge work. @visor was funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
A L O E - The open platform to share any kind of digital resources!
ALOE allows you to
- upload and share arbitrary types of digital resources,
- share and organize your bookmarks,
- find resources with different types of search filters,
- rank search results according to different criteria (most recent, best rated, most viewed, etc.)
- tag, rate, and comment on resources and bookmarks,
- initiate groups and communicate with other users,
- publish information as private, public, or only for certain groups,
- associate arbitrary metadata (e.g., Dublin Core, LOM) sets with resources,
The project aims at developing a visual configuration tool to aggregate weblogs. The manual usage of blog search engines, the subsequent scanning of postings according to structural preferences (short postings, audio included, etc.) and the aggreagtion via standard RSS readers will be obsolete by using the AMPLOG configuration. Furthermore the resulting topic-related metablogs may be converted to portable formats such as podcasts. Amplog was funded by the Foundation for Innovation Rhineland-Palatinate (SIRP (german only))
Aperture is a Java framework for extracting and querying full-text content and metadata from various information systems (e.g. file systems, web sites, mail boxes) and the file formats (e.g. documents, images) occurring in these systems. It has a flexible architecture and can be extended with custom file formats, data sources, etc., with support for deployment on OSGi platforms. Data exchange based on Semantic Web standards (e.g. RDF, SPARQL, ...).
The aim of the CoMet project is to develop a platform that serves as a hub for arbitrary resources and metadata, and that allows to collabratively share and exchange this information.
The vision of iACT is to research, develop and evaluate tools, strategies and metaphors to better understand and support ways to interact effectively with large, immersive displays. Thus, the project aims at providing users with new, intuitive ways to make sense of normally unstructured and hardly comprehensible information, to share their insights with others and develop new ones by working as a team. To achieve this goal, a large part of research will be to develop intuitive visualization metaphors for large displays and explore more natural techniques to interact with information represented on a large scale display.
NEPOMUK aims at empowering individual knowledge workers to better exploit their personal information space and to maintain fruitful communication and exchange within social networks across organizational boundaries.
NEPOMUK brings together researchers, industrial software developers, and representative industrial users, to develop a comprehensive solution for extending the personal desktop into a collaboration environment which supports both the personal information management and the sharing and exchange across social and organizational relations. This solution is called the Social Semantic Desktop.
Mymory will lead to a personal memory for knowledge workers which is not only a passive storage, but also proactively supports context-driven structuring of its content and user-perspective interpretation and incorporation of arriving information. One of the main areas of research in Mymory is concerned with using attention evidence data collected by unobtrusive user observation in information retrieval. The general idea is that the precision of information retrieval methods can be enhanced when the current interests and task of the user are estimated with the help of user observation.
The aim of the project PEEK - funded by Hitachi Central Research Laboratory, Tokyo - is to develop an intelligent tool for searching and navigating through a document pool. Here search and navigation do not only take into account properties like author, full text, etc., but also handwritten annotations that have been made to documents. The latter are created by using Hitachi's Digital Pen technology.
Thus new technologies are combined for a "Personalized Semantic Desktop" application.
Ricoh Demo Room
The Ricoh Demoroom is part of the Competence Center "Virtual Office of the Future" (CC-VOF) at DFKI. In a cooperative project with Ricoh, the VOF designs and tests innovative software solutions that effectively support knowledge-intensive work processes. The Ricoh Demoroom lets visitors experience new methods for work in the office of the future and, simultaneously, serves as an experimental test lab for new concepts in office procedures. The focus of research is on support to knowledge-intensive office work with a combination of DFKI's intelligent assistance systems and Ricoh's multi-functional office equipment (Multifunctional Product - MFP) that combines printer, copier, scanner, and fax in one device.
