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. This research group works on the development of scalable analytics and distributed algorithms for tasks like similarity assessment, multilingual matching, anomaly detection. classification, optimization, and clustering. The major tool used for implementation is Apache Spark for scalable processing of large scale datasets and distribution of computational tasks in memory. Another research focus of the group is semantic modelling and developing scalable solutions for handling heterogeneous data and long-tail data, applied to data management, multimodal analytics and data harmonization. The group also works on the development of big data infrastructures and platforms for scalable computing and heterogeneous data management.
