During lecture time, we have our Lunchtime Seminar each Tuesday from 12.15-12.45. During this seminars, researchers of the Department or invited guest provide us with insights into their research.

Datesort ascending Title Abstract
12.01.2021 Lunchtime Talk: Process Science

The first Lunchtime-Seminar in 2021 will be about “Process Science”. Process science, as introduced in a keynote at the BPM 2020 Conference in Sevilla for the first time, is an exciting new field of science, which is about the interdisciplinary study of processes aiming to understand, influence and design the evolvement of processes. The talk explains why it is timely and important to establish process science as an individual field. Also, a theoretical foundation for process science is... more

15.12.2020 CLAIRE: Challenges for Creating a Unified European AI Community with a Human-Centred Focus

The Confederation of Laboratories for Artificial Intelligence Research in Europe (CLAIRE, https://claire-ai.org) is an organisation created by the European AI community that seeks to strengthen European excellence in AI research and innovation with a strong focus on human-centred AI. CLAIRE aims to ensure that societies and citizens across all of Europe, and beyond, benefit from AI as a major driver of innovation, future growth and competitiveness, and to... more

08.12.2020 Big Satellite Data: Opportunities and Challenges

Machine learning techniques aim at extracting knowledge in an automatic manner and have been identified as one of the key drivers for future discoveries and innovation in in this field. Processing and analyzing the massive amounts of data can, however, still become extremely challenging from a computational perspective. The presentation will cover some of our current research activities that are related to this line of research. In particular, I will sketch the potential of modern deep... more

01.12.2020 Critical success factors of data management in intra-organizational settings

Data management consists of the planning and execution of policies, practices, and projects that acquire, control, and enhance the value of data. Many organizations approach data management in a holistic manner, focusing on several data assets at once. However, a holistic approach comprising a large data scope and several data decision domains can lead to slow relative progress which can lead to an unwillingness of senior management to adopt and invest in data management. Therefore, it is... more

24.11.2020 Practitioner-centered Assessment of Socio-technical Innovations in Crisis Management: Insights from the DRIVER+ Demonstration Project

The scale and pace of crises pose enormous challenges for the crisis management (CM) community, with new threats emerging all the time. An already complex field must strive to integrate new technologies and methods; cope with a rapidly changing infrastructure; understand evolving risks; be effective across cultural, administrative and national boundaries as well as engage with populations to enhance their resilience. In this context, crisis management innovation must be capable of meeting... more

17.11.2020 Credit default prediction from user-generated text based on deep learning

Dr. Johannes Kriebel will present a project on the use of natural language processing to predict credit risk from user-generated text data on peer-to-peer lending platforms.

09.07.2019 RISE_BPM: Experiences from a 4-Years Horizon 2020 Researcher and Staff Exchange Project

RISE_BPM was the first favourably evaluated project proposal submitted by the University of Münster in cooperation with ERCIS partners within the Horizon 2020 EU funding programme. The RISE_BPM project aimed at networking research institutions and corporate innovators to develop new ideas for Business Process Management (BPM). The project consortium, besides the University of Münster as the coordinator, included partners from Australia, South Korea, Brazil, Austria, Spain, the Netherlands,... more

02.07.2019 Artificial Intelligence is a trending topic in computer science

Autonomous systems rely on AI to make decisions and adapt to changes. What role do security considerations play when designing such systems? This talk will give an overview of the interaction and combination of IT security with artificial intelligence.

25.06.2019 The value of practical and academic partnering – the case of ERCIS & Arvato/Bertelsmann

While digitization and digitalization require substantial organic change (1) and often times M&A (2), partnering represents a 3rd lever for strategy execution. Partners can come from multiple backgrounds. Some working for-profit, such as software vendors, consultants or incubators. Yet there are interesting players from the non-profit arena, such as governmental institutions or universities. Universities among others focus on education but also on research that ideally... more

18.06.2019 Test-Case Generation for Java Programs

Java is still one of the most popular programming languages and widely used to develop enterprise, mobile, and web applications. This talk presents an automated approach to generate unit tests for Java programs. The approach is based on symbolic execution, a popular program analysis technique that is able to explore all execution paths through a program.
