The Data Science (DICE) group develops methods, algorithms and applications for the extraction, integration, storage, querying, access and consumption of large-scale datasets. In contrast to most other groups, DICE focusses on knowledge-driven methods. We hence rely and extend on knowledge representation standards developed for the Semantic Web. The area of application of our research include but are not limited to solutions for federated queries on the Web, knowledge extraction from text and other types of datasets, knowledge integration and fusion, keyword-based search and question answering.

We are dedicated to open-source software and open publications. Have a look at our tool page to find a list of the open-source frameworks we offer. These tools and frameworks implement our innovative approaches to the problems aforementioned and are designed to facilitate their swift integration into industry projects. Our project page gives you an overview of the projects we have worked or are working on. Interested in working with us? Please click here to contact us.
