HiWi - Mediabase Commander

Job type HiWi
Extent 15-19h
Status Closed
Contact Dr. Michael Derntl

We are looking for a student interested in Web 2.0 tools and services development for a large EU project

The Mediabase commander is developed within our chair as a tool for operating and analyzing media resources of Web 2.0 communities (e.g. blogs, websites, forums, mailing lists). These media resources are stored and are updated every day in our media database.

A huge number of resources may create information overload for a community, thus it is beneficial to provide aggregated information about resources. In the context of the TEL-Map project the main objective of using the Mediabase is to provide the stakeholder communities with easy-to-use tools and services for offering this kind of aggregate information through social network analysis, text mining, topic mining and visualizations. The results will be displayed in widgets and on the TEL-Map portal.

Your task will be to support the implementation of these tools which operate on the Mediabase data. You will be offered to work and learn in a stimulating environment, and the tools you will develop will be publicly available on the Web to a large community of users all over Europe.


* Expected skills (at least to some degree): Javascript, AJAX, SQL, Java
* Expected interests: Web 2.0, Widgets, Social Network Analysis, Visualization
* English is a benefit
