Ricoh Demoroom

I'm taking part in the "Virtual Office of the Future" (here is the VOF DFKI website), a joint research effort of DFKI, IESE and RICOH Software R&D Group, Tokyo Japan.
See Ricoh's R&D activities .
I'm responsible for the Ricoh Demoroom (you can visit us and get some demos ... see Ricoh Demoroom homepage for more details)
The RICOH Demoroom lets visitors experience new methods for work in the office of the future and, simultaneously, serves as an experimental test lab for new concepts in office procedures. The focus of research is on support to knowledge-intensive office work with a combination of DFKI's intelligent assistance systems and Ricoh's multi-functional office equipment (Multifunctional Product MFP) that combines printer, copier, scanner, and fax in one device.

ForgetIT - Concise Preservation by combining Managed Forgetting and Contextualized Remembering
Enabling Personal Preservation with our Semantic Desktop approach. Find the project web-page here: ForgetIT. Our Personal Preservation Pilot including motivation and videos of the Semantic Desktop approach and the PIMO can be found in the ForgetIT Personal Preservation Pilot online documentation

since 2017

From our research we developed CoMem. CoMem is an ecosystem based on evolving knowledge graphs integrating information silos and legacy systems as well as (personal) information sources of knowledge workers and teams. Embedded in their office environment, CoMem supports daily work with knowledge services to form a bottom-up Corporate Memory.
As both a long-term, multi-project spanning research endeavor, as well as, an operating software prototype, CoMem transfers state-of-the-art research to the real world. Find more details at
