Foundational and applied research in the area of information systems enabled by Semantic (Web) technology
Prof. Dr. Marta Sabou (F), is a Full Professor for "Information Systems and Business Engineering" at the WU. She focuses on research at the intersection of Semantic Web technologies and Human Computation and Crowdsourcing. She is an accomplished academic (over 100 peer-reviewed papers, h-index=45) and has extensive project work and management experience.
Dr. Fajar J. Ekaputra (M) is an Assistant Professor at the WU on the topic of Semantic Web for Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management. He has a vast research project experience on the topic of the Semantic Web and its applications in several domains, including Industrie 4.0, Smart Cities, Smart Grid, and Personal Data management.
Laura Waltersdorfer (F) is a PhD student researching Auditable Semantic AI Systems in the medical science and environmental context. She has gained research experience in information systems and data integration approaches in industrial informatics, including quality assurance and process analysis.
Stefani Tsaneva (F) recently graduated from the master's program Business Informatics and has now joined the team as a research assistant. She has experience in the areas of Human Computation and Ontology Evaluation. In her master thesis, she investigated human-centric Ontology Evaluation tasks that can’t be yet solved using AI algorithms and how Human Computation and Crowdsourcing techniques can be applied for solving them.
Majlinda Llugiqi (F) studied Logic and Computation Master’s Program at the Technical University of Vienna. In her master thesis, she worked on improving learned decision trees with knowledge in domain ontologies. She now joined the team as a Project Staff Member.
Katrin Schreiberhuber (F) holds a bachelor’s degree from WU Wien and a master’s degree in Data Science from TU Wien. Her master thesis focused on applying Knowledge Graph Embeddings to derive Event Explanations in a Knowledge Graph and serves as a basis for her PhD studies at WU Wien on the Intersection between Semantic Technologies and Machine Learning within the FFG SENSE project.
Mevludin Memedi (M) holds a PhD degree in Information Technology and MSc degree in Computer Engineering with specialization in Artificial Intelligence. His research focuses on developing and evaluating information systems containing modules for data collection (e.g., sensors), exploratory analysis (e.g., machine learning), and interactive visualizations (e.g., dashboards). He joined WU as a project staff member in February 2023.
Guntur Budi Herwanto (M) is a PhD student in Computer Science with a focus in the integration of privacy aspects into agile software development through the use of intelligent systems. He has experience with both general software development and the creation of machine-learning-enabled software.
Ayu Irsyam, B.Sc (F), held a Bachelor's degree in microbiology and had recently obtained a Zertifierter Fachfrau Buchhaltung qualification. She speaks both German and English, with work experience in marketing communications and accounting. In her current role, she will support the Semantic Systems lab with project administration tasks and data management.
