Welcome to the Professorship for Data Modelling & Interdisciplinary Knowledge Generation
The modeling of data, their preparation as well as their efficient processing by means of custom-fit algorithms, e.g. in the field of social network analysis, machine learning and text mining, are the focal points to which the Junior Chair for Data Modeling and Interdisciplinary Knowledge Generation is dedicated.
This professorship is located at the interface between the humanities and social sciences on the one hand and computer science on the other. The greatest challenge of cooperation among these disciplines is to operationalize the common research question in an understandable way and to translate it into a suitable data model. Interdisciplinary knowledge generation can only succeed if all participants gain a common understanding of the data, the data model and the result of the algorithms.
We are a member of the cluster of excellence: "africa multiple" in the digital research environment ...more
