Data Mining

Many applications, e.g., in biomedicine, the web and sensor networks generate tremendous amounts of data. We have unprecedented opportunities to find profound answers to complex questions, e.g., "what is the best way to get to the airport?" Or: "is this drug suitable for me?" However, having more data not automatically means gaining more knowledge.
To exploit the opportunities in Big Data, we need intelligent and efficient algorithms translating the information in data into understandable knowledge. The research group Data Mining headed by Prof. Dr. Claudia Plant investigates methods comprehensively supporting the process of knowledge discovery from Big Data.

Currently, we focus on the following topics:
