Stefanie Nowak (Alumni)Visiting Researcher
I was a research visitor at KMi between October 2009 and January 2010 and used my time there to learn and work on my PhD. Normally I am employed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology in Ilmenau, Germany. The project I am there working on is called THESEUS. In THESEUS I am concerned with the evaluation of multimedia analysis and retrieval approaches.
In my PhD I am concerned with the combination of ontologies with automatic annotation algorithms for photos and investigate how far these machine learning approaches can benefit from the additional incorporated knowledge.
