Agile Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web (AKSW)

The Research Group Agile Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web (AKSW) is hosted by the Chair of Business Information Systems (BIS) of the Institute of Computer Science (IfI) / University of Leipzig as well as the Institute for Applied Informatics (InfAI).

Goals

  • Development of methods, tools and applications for adaptive Knowledge Engineering in the context of the Semantic Web
  • Research of underlying Semantic Web technologies and development of fundamental Semantic Web tools and applications
  • Maturation of strategies for fruitfully combining the Social Web paradigms with semantic knowledge representation techniques

AKSW is committed to the free software, open source, open access and open knowledge movements.

Jobs

We are always glad about seeing new people in our group. AKSW currently has some open job offers. Please find further information on our Jobs-Resource.

Projects

AKSW has launched a number of high-impact R&D projects. Please look at the projects page for a comprehensive description of AKSW's funded as well as community, open source and past projects.
