Current Activities

Currently, I am project leader of the Mymory project which deals with attention-oriented IT support for Knowledge Management. I was resonsible for the ontology aspects in FRODO and its successor project EPOS.
As co-chair of the ontology taskforce, I could transfer (and elaborate) some of these ideas to the Nepomuk Semantic Desktop project.
I also co-ordinated DFKI-KM´s Ontology Discussion Group and a DFKI-KM reading and discussion group on Ben Shneiderman´s book “Leonardo´s Laptop”.
