Collaborative Research Center SFB 876 - Providing Information by Resource-Constrained Data Analysis


The collaborative research center SFB876 brings together data mining and embedded systems. On the one hand, embedded systems can be further improved using machine learning. On the other hand, data mining algorithms can be realized in hardware, e.g. FPGAs, or run on GPGPUs. The restrictions of ubiquitous systems in computing power, memory, and energy demand new algorithms for known learning tasks. These resource bounded learning algorithms may also be applied on extremely large data bases on servers.



Think Big: Professors of computer science talk about Big Data at nrwision

Journalism students from the TU Dortmund University spoke during the media talk "Think Big" with various experts on the topic of "Big Data". In the series Prof. Kristian Kersting (projects A6 and B4), Prof. Christian Sohler (projects A2, A6 and C4), Prof. Katharina Morik (projects A1, B3 and C3) and Prof. Michael ten Hompel (project A4) were guests of the students at the TU Dortmund University. They discussed questions of large data collections, their analysis, forecasts on them and even more. The questions discussed were for example how data mining influenced our life, which conclusion is possible due to our social network on facebook or how data mining influenced the medicine. They also talked about the risks arising with data mining. Another topic was Industry 4.0, for example warehousing could be automated by seonsrs and data mining, on long-term there could be self-organizing systems. This format was created under the direction of journalism professor Michael Steinbrecher, whose research area also deals with the topic "Big Data".

Katharina Morik at the bestowal of the certificate

Katharina Morik, speaker of the collaborative research center SFB 876, has been appointed as a new member of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts for the group Engineering and Economic Science. The academy puts its focus on fundamental research. It provides a platform for discussion via regular public events and bridges the gap between research, government and industry. The certficate of appointment will be granted at the yearly academy ceremony on 11th of March 2016.

By the appointment of Katharina Morik does the acadamy acknowledge her outstanding resarch profile, her achievements as speaker of the research center SFB 876 and her international reputation and research in machine learning.

Big Data - Small Devices: Panel discussion video online

On March 7 the panel discussion on Big Data - Small devices has been held in New York. The video including presentations and discussion is now available online. The collaborative research center SFB 876 has been represented by Katharina Morik (Resource-Aware Data Science), Wolfgang Rhode (Science for Science) and Kristian Kersting (Not so Fast: Driving into (Mobile) Traffic Jams), while a as a local presenter Claudia Perlich (Dstillery) gave her view on big data analysis. The discussion itself was moderated by Tina Eliassi-Rad (Northeastern-University/Rutgers University). The event has been organized by the New York German Center for Research and Innovation and co-sponsored by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and University Allicane UA Ruhr.
