Forschergruppe Informationsfusion



Given the steadily increasing volume of information available worldwide leads to a need of possibilities for discovering, integrating, and processing the heterogeneous data bases. The goal of the information fusion is thereby the extraction of information of a new, higher quality. Therefore mechanisms are required for efficient access to heterogeneous sources as well as technologies for various fusion and analysis tasks. It is the vision of the project to develop a workbench as an implementation of efficient information systems with application oriented fusion technologies. Starting with selected application profiles a library of methods for the analysis of data and documents, criteria for the application of these methods, techniques of user interaction with the fusion process and therein gained information spaces, as well as elements of the infrastructure of efficient information systems is to be developed.
