01 | Forschungsinteresse

Maschinelle Sprachverarbeitung und Informationsabruf

Mein Forschungsinteresse liegt in der Schnittstelle zwischen Information Retrieval (IR) und Natural Language Processing (NLP). Diese Schwerpunkte behandeln das computergestützte Abrufen von Informationen und komplexen Inhalten, die maschinelle Verarbeitung der natürlichen Sprache sowie die Implementierung solcher Techniken in reale Anwendungen. Bei dem Projekt Intelligent Directory Request Assistant (YPA) spielt die Extraktion von Informationen aus teilsstrukturierten Daten zusammen mit technischen Problemen eine wichtige Rolle, um YPA zu einem nutzbaren Online-System zu machen.

Dialogsysteme, Gamification sowie datenschutzrechtliche und ethische Problemstellungen im Information Retrieval sind weitere Forschungsthemen, die ich untersuche.

Industrie und Wissenschaft näher zusammenbringen

Ich war außerdem an erfolgreichen gemeinsamen Universitäts- und Industrieprojekten beteiligt, die NLP- und IR-Forschung in praktische kommerzielle Anwendungen umwandelten, beispielsweise als PI in einem Projekt der Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) mit Signal Media. Die Zusammenarbeit wurde beim InnovateUK-Event „Best of the Best 2015“ mit dem Preis für das beste Wissenstransfer-Partnerschaftsprojekt des Jahres ausgezeichnet. Ein weiteres KTP-Projekt mit Signal Media hat gerade begonnen. Ich habe großes Interesse daran, Industrie und Wissenschaft näher zusammenzubringen. Dafür habe ich eine Reihe von Veranstaltungen (mit-)organisiert, z. B. die Branchentage bei Top-IR-Konferenzen. Außerdem bin ich Teil des Organisationsteams der Search Solutions-Veranstaltung, die alljährlich bei British Computer Society's London HQ stattfindet.

Zudem habe ich in Regensburg das Meetup Data Science @ Regensburg ins Leben gerufen, an dem regelmäßig nationale und internationale Referenten aus Industrie und Wissenschaft teilnehmen. Schauen Sie vorbei und machen Sie mit!

COURAGE

COURAGE wird von der VolkswagenStiftung
finanziert und strebt einen virtuellen Begleiter an, der
Jugendliche in die Nutzung sozialer Netzwerke
einführen soll. Dieser virtuelle Begleiter wird das
Bewusstsein für die potenziellen Bedrohungen schärfen,
denen junge Menschen in sozialen Netzwerken
ausgesetzt sind.

Zusammenarbeit mit SIGNAL

Ein äußerst erfolgreiches Projekt der Knowledge
Transfer Partnership (KTP) (2013-2015) war der
Ausgangspunkt für eine kontinuierliche Zusammen-
arbeit mit Signal Media.
Ich freue mich, dass Miguel Martinez-Alvarez, der
als KTP Associate zu uns gestoßen ist, jetzt als Leiter
der Forschungsabteilung bei Signal tätig ist. Derzeit
bin ich als leitender akademischer Berater tätig.             

Nachfolgend finden Sie aktuelle News zu unserer
Zusamenarbeit:

November 2014: Miguel wird zum Business Leader of Tomorrow ernannt.

April 2015: Beste Demo-Auszeichnung auf der ECIR 2015 für die Signal-Demo und noch aufregender:
Signal hat gerade bekannt gegeben, dass es 1,8 Mio.
USD Wachstumskapital von erstklassigen Investoren gesammelt hat (siehe Techcrunch).

November 2015: Signal project gewinnt
Best KTP Partnership Award 2015.

Februar 2016: Projekt Features wieder auf der
Homepage von InnovateUK's.

Weiterer Meilenstein: Signal schließt 16 Mio. USD
Series B funding round ab.

Dezember 2018: Neues KTP Projekt Start für Januar
2019 bestätigt.

Phrase Detectives

DALI

Das Projekt "Creating anaphorically annotated
resources through semantic wikis (AnaWiki) (EPSRC)"
hat zur Entwicklung von Phrase Detectives geführt,
einem Annotationsspiel, das auf die Erstellung
semantisch kommentierter Korpora abzielt.

Das DALI ERC Projekt baut auf den Erkenntnissen
von PhraseDetectives auf.

SENSEI

Conversational interaction is the most natural and
persistent paradigm for business relations with
customers. In contact centres millions of calls are
handled daily. On social media platforms millions of
blog posts are exchanged amongst users.
Can we make sense of such conversations and help
create assets and value for private and public
organizations’ decision makers? And indeed for
anyone interested in conversational content?

The overall goals of the Horizon 2020 project
"Making Sense of Human-Human Conversation
Data (SENSEI)"
are twofold. First, SENSEI will develop
summarization/analytics technology to help users
make sense of human conversation streams from
diverse media channels. Second, SENSEI will design
and evaluate its summarization technology in real-
world environments, aiming to improve task
performance and productivity of end-users.

Lebenslauf

Seit Juli 2019 ist Udo Kruschwitz der Inhaber des Lehrstuhls für Informationswissenschaft an der Universität Regensburg.

Zuvor war er als Professor an der School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering der University of Essex tätig.

Sein Forschungsinteresse liegt in der Schnittstelle zwischen Information Retrieval (IR) und Natural Language Processing (NLP). Er leitete Forschungsprojekte, in denen Algorithmen entwickelt wurden, um unstrukturierte und teilsstrukturierte Textdaten in strukturiertes Wissen und Benutzer-/Kohortenmodelle zu überführen, die in einer Vielzahl von Einsatzfeldern, einschließlich der Suche, Navigation und Zusammenfassung, angewandt wurden.
