Our lab is glad to welcome Dr. Avleen Malhi as a visiting postdoc researcher for September 2019 at Trinity College Dublin Ireland. During Avleen’s stay at Trinity College Dublin, her research will be focused on automated machine learning (AutoML) and exploring Siamese neural networks (SNN) for algorithm selection in our recommender-system as-a-service for digital libraries Mr. DLib.

The second Freeplane/Docear Developer Conference: User Friendliness, Collaboration and Scripting

Last year in July we met the core developers of the mind mapping software Freeplane in Munich (Docear’s mind mapping component is based on Freeplane). At that meeting we decided that Freeplane and Docear would closely cooperate. Now, more than a year later it was time to meet again and discuss the next big steps in the development of Freeplane and Docear. So we met this weekend in Magdeburg, Docear’s “headquarter”. And while last year six people attended the meeting, this year we were nine participants (three from Docear, three from Freeplane and three students from HTW Berlin) plus one Freeplane developer attending via video. In the following I would like to provide a brief overview of the discussed topics and results.
