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.
In Security and Trust Engineering our research and development work is mainly focused on: Network & Internet Security, Cloud and SOA-Security (SOA - Service Oriented Architectures) and Security Awareness.
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.
In recent years the Semantic Web has emerged as one of the most essential achievements for the future of the World Wide Web (WWW). Semantic Web technology extends the WWW but also enables to improve applications which are related to other fields such as communication, information, knowledge, media, and interaction technologies. Semantic Web provides not just new technologies and tools but also new paradigms and ways of thinking, to make information processing more efficient and more structured.
Our research is focussed on the devolpment and improvement of 'semantically supported multimedia retrieval and search technologies'.

Linked Open Data has become one of the driving forces for the emerging Semantic Web, which enables interlinking and integrating former proprietary data to the global linked data by using RDF as a standard data format. In this paper we show how to integrate the database of the open academic video search plattform yovisto.com with the linked open data cloud and how to augment yovisto video search by including semantically interrelated linked open data
THESEUS/CONTENTUS Project The purpose of CONTENTUS is to develop basic technologies with which to access, archive and search for multi-media cultural assets and works of art.
YOVISTO Yovisto is a video search engine specialized in academic content. Yovisto's search index is based on the combination of automated content based video analysis with user generated collaborative annotation (collaborative tagging, discussions, and comments). In difference to traditional video search engines, Yovisto enables pinpoint access within video data by providing fine-granular, time-dependent metadata.
Semantic Games Games with a purpose that are dedicated to create and curate semantic content.
