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 group develops horizontally scalable analytics algorithms for analysing large scale knowledge graphs by distributing the computational tasks in the main memory of individual nodes.

Knowledge Graph Analysis

The group focuses on machine learning over knowledge graphs, in particular by computing embeddings and by learning description logic concepts.

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 group focusses on querying knowledge graphs using natural language using both machine learning as well as rule-based natural language processing techniques.

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.
