  • Cosmin Basca, recent DDIS graduate, joins ORACLE labs

    Cosmin Basca, who just recently defended his thesis, will be joining ORACLE Labs in Zurich. This is a great success for Cosmin, who was researching federated triple-stores. Well done Cosmin!More...
  • Lorenz Fischer’s joint paper with Yahoo! Labs published at ISWC

    Lorenz is on a roll. His paper “Timely Semantics: A Study of a Stream-based Ranking System for Entity Relationships ” was accepted to be presented at the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) in Bethlehem, PA, this fall. The paper discusses the possibility of using stream processing rather than a batch-based system to ensure the recency/freshness [...]More...
  • Lorenz Fischer Defends his thesis

    On June 29 Lorenz Fischer successfully defended his thesis “Efficient Distributed Stream Processing: Optimization Approaches and Applications.” In his thesis Lorenz explores new, highly-efficient approaches for managing stream processing systems. You can find a number of his papers announced in this blog… Congratulations Lorenz!More...
  • Lorenz’s Fischer’s paper at Cluster 2015 nominated for Best Paper Award

    The paper “Machines Tuning Machines: Configuring Distributed Stream Processors with Bayesian Optimization” by Lorenz Fischer, Shen Gao, and Abraham Bernstein was nominated for best paper award. Way to go Lorenz!More...
  • Lorenz Fischer published his paper on automated configuration of distributed stream processing systems at Cluster 2015

    The paper “Machines Tuning Machines: Configuring Distributed Stream Processors with Bayesian Optimization” by Lorenz Fischer, Shen Gao, and Abraham Bernstein was accepted at the IEEE Cluster 2015 conference. The paper presents an approach based on bayesian optimization that automatically tunes the myriad of parameters that a distributed stream processing system exposes. The paper will soon [...]More...

Welcome to the home-page of the Dynamic and Distributed Information Systems Group

We focus on research in the areas of:

  • Semantic Web / Linked Open Data
  • Machine Learning
  • Human Computer Interaction

and the combinations of the above. 

Please explore our new home-page using the menu on the left or look at the news on the right.

We will try to port incerasing amounts of our old home-page, which is available here.
