Welcome on the homepage of the chair "Internet Technologies and Systems" of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel and his team. We like to inform you about our teaching and ongoing research activities in security, knowledge engineering, innovation and design thinking research.
The chair of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel offers courses in the following disciplines: Internet and Web Technologies, (Discrete) Mathematics and Logic, IT Security and Internet Security, Complexity Theory and Information Security as well as Design Thinking.
The research of the team of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel in the field of knowledge management and engineering focus on the challenging question, how to manage the mass of digital data, so-called "big data", from Internet and other sources in order to generate new knowledge.
Germany’s 30,000 libraries, museums and archives contain an incredible wealth of knowledge in the form of millions of books, images, tapes and films. Researchers involved in CONTENTUS are exploring how these cultural assets can be made available to as many people as possible and preserved for future generations.
One of the major challenges facing the knowledge society is to provide easy access to knowledge and cultural assets through multiple media channels. In particular, the HPI is involved in the design and development of an innovative user interface that supports pin-point access and exploratory search within large collections of texts, images or video and audio recordings.
