elab2go - Mobile Engineering Lab is an online platform of the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern and part of the joint research project Open Digitization Alliance Palatinate (ODPfalz). We present changing demonstrators that illustrate technological trends in a simple project setting. The demos are interesting for engineers and computer scientists, especially for prospective students and students who are planning their professional career and have to decide between programs. The demonstrators are published on our website: elab2go - Mobile Engineering Lab.

Past projects, to which I contributed while with Fraunhofer ITWM and ontoprise GmbH, focused on applications of Semantic Web technologies and optimization algorithms.


2010 - 2012 MappingAssistant. Interactive Maintenance and Diagnosis of Data Integration Rules.
Data models from heterogeneous data sources can be mapped by using integration rules. Mapping is done either manually or in an automated process and has to be repeated when the underlying data models are changed. Mapping errors are introduced either by human mistake or by the automated process and need to be checked manually. Within this project, we developed a semi-automated process and a tool for maintenance and diagnosis of data integration rules.


2010 - 2012 EU-funded project ONTORULE.
Main result of the project is a showcase platform, describing how to implement applications using business knowledge in the form of ontologies and business rules. As contribution to the workpackage Execution and Inference, we developed a new reasoning component for the ontology language OWL and tested it within an industrial scenario.


2010 - 2012 THESEUS-Texo. Infrastructure for Web-based Services.
The THESEUS programme developed technologies for the Internet of Services, specifically semantic technologies able to analyze, classify and link information based on content. As part of the Texo service marketplace we developed a ontology-based recommendation system for a B2B services platform.
