The technology division consists of different research groups:
- Analytical Information Systems
Analysis and further development of processes for the automatic textual information analysis (text mining) with special focus on the extraction of opinions (opinion mining).
- Cyber-Physical Systems
Research on the integration of the production lines’ embedded systems with the company-wide IT-system and evaluation of the transmitted and collected data.
- Empirical Research and User Experience (ERUX)
The ERUX research group carries out user-related market research projects. One focus is on the analysis and evaluation of digital systems with regard to their usage and interaction possibilities from the user's perspective. In addition, ERUX conceives user-optimised product and process designs as well as user-oriented human-machine interfaces, e.g. for (partially) autonomous systems.
- Multimedia Information Systems
Support of structured and unstructured data in information systems as well as search and linkage of such data with focus on the administration of relational, textual and geographic data.
- System Integration
Technical linkage of information systems by using service-oriented architectures and relating the contents to semantic technologies.
- Systems and Network Security (SNS)
The research group deals with various topics of applied system and network security. Among the research topics of the group are Software security, DDoS amplification, secure distributed systems, anonymisation services, vulnerability assessment, privacy
- Visual Analytics
Research issues in the scope of intelligent user interfaces, particularly interaction and communication between human and computer for visually analyzing large and complex data sets.
