Software Campus: Data Driven Decision Recommendation for Administrative Bodies Based on Collective Intelligence

The enormous amount of data created by people using every day mobile devices with increasingly sensing capabilities, such as image, location and other data, has led to the establishment of a new crowdsourcing concept called Participatory Sensing. It describes people voluntarily sensing their local environment and sharing this data using mobile phones and the web, more…

Prosperity4All

The world is increasingly being “technified”, yet many people can’t use modern ICT  due to Disability, (Digital) Illiteracy,  or Aging: We don’t have solutions for all. It’s too expensive for many. People don’t know what exists that would help them. Access to ONE device is no longer sufficient: access to all encountered devices is needed… more…

MobileDust

Particulate Matter has a serious impact on health, well-being and the life expectancy of people. Today, only few stationary or mobile sensing stations are available for the monitoring of large areas, e.g. a city. This project aims to develop mobile particulate matter dosimeters that can be used for distributed Fine Dust Monitoring, e.g. through Participatory more…

The Envboard is intended to be generically suitable for various application scenarios. more…

TIMBUS: DIGITAL PRESERVATION FOR TIMELESS BUSINESS PROCESSES AND SERVICES

Digital Preservation (DP) is traditionally understood as the management of digital information over time. The digital preservation problem is well-understood for query-centric information scenarios but has been less explored for scenarios where the important digital information to be preserved is the execution context within which data is processed, analysed, transformed and rendered. A primary motivation more…
