Analyzing distributed ledger data structures for the immutable persistence of transactions and tamper-secure execution of processes
Posted on 31. Aug 2018; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Rose; Advisor(s): Thomas Osterland
Often only noticed as a technology that enables the digital currency Bitcoin, blockchain is a novel protocol that allows the distributed and secure storing of information and untampered execution of program code in trust-less environments. As part of a broader range of technologies that allow the immutable storage of information in decentralized networks, where network participants build a consensus about the correctness of persisted information, the classical blockchain is only one specific implementation of distributed ledger technologies. Other ledger technologies are based on directed acyclic graphs (DAGs). Topic of this thesis is the exploration and implementation of a DAG based ledger in the existing blockchain framework Labchain (https://github.com/putschli/LabChain).
Master
Automatic Provenance Generation for Serverless Computing
Posted on 14. Oct 2019; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Stefan Decker; Advisor(s): Lars Gleim, M. Sc.
In the context of this work, the student should extend the Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) paradigm of serverless computing with concepts for the automatic tracking of provenance information (information about data origins, uses, actors and involved processes over time, similar to a GIT revision history for data) and implement a corresponding framework using a readily available FaaS platform, such as Kubeless, OpenFaaS or the Fn Project.

Master
Interactive Support for Business Modelling
Posted on 21. Jun 2017; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Rose; Advisor(s): Thomas Osterland
A business model is an abstract model of the business of one or more cooperating organisations. It is a conceptual and architectural implementation of a business strategy and the foundation for the implementation of business processes and information systems. The research objective of this thesis is the design, implementation and evaluation of an interactive tool for the engineering of a business model.
Master
Measuring coherence accross media in learning environments
Posted on 28. Sep 2017; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR, Prof. Dr. Marc Spaniol
Multimedia content based indexing delivered a lot of models for the analysis of multimedia materials. In modern educational platforms, e.g. MOOCs and self-regulated learning platforms. In consequence, multimedia materials are produced by educational designers but also by the learners during their learning processes. Coherence is a semantic measure for the local and global connectivity of e.g. sentences, paragraphs, videos, slides among others. Computer linguistics has provided impressive results for measuring the quality of writing, e.g. for automatic essay scoring. To measure the coherence of multimedia materials many computational methods reaching from natural language processing to machine learning needs to be combined in a common coherence model. Goal of this master thesis is to co-develop a coherence model for cross-media coherence and to prototypically combine these computational methods for a webinar.

FIT and Bosch offer in collaboration two Master Theses: Combination of different application specific blockchains and registry of services governed by blockchains
Master
Process model-oriented creation of smart contracts
Posted on 31. Aug 2018; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Rose; Advisor(s): Thomas Osterland
Often only noticed as a technology that enables the digital currency Bitcoin, blockchain is a novel protocol that allows the distributed and secure storing of information and untempered execution of program code in trust-less environments. Did you ever feel the intense desire to write a thesis about blockchain or do you have a slight hope that blockchain is the one-and-only topic that touches your heart? Use your chance now! We are looking forward to hear from you.
Master
Simulating the dynamics of interacting blockchain nodes
Posted on 31. Aug 2018; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Rose; Advisor(s): Thomas Osterland

Master
Simulation tools for the Assessment of Emergency Management Processes
Posted on 12. Sep 2018; Supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Rose; Advisor(s): Thomas Osterland
Large scale disasters represent a major challenge for any medical service. Typically such disasters, be they founded in terrorism, natural or technical catastrophize, generate a significant number of casualties (MASCAL – Mass Casualty) with severe and unusual injury patterns. Many processes are supported by Standard Operating Procedures as common practice, but any catastrophe requires a change of processes due to the nature of the disaster and thus furnishes a major challenge for hospital operations. As of now, hospitals and medical services are designed for a specific workload that has been agreed among different stakeholders. Hence, processes and their resources are designed in light of best practices for patient care as well as anticipated workload.
Master
User Digital Assistant Dialog Service
Intelligent user assistant agents and chatbots provide task based interactions and functionality to the user. The objective of the thesis is the user interaction analysis for a given set of tasks, the design of a suitable dialog service based on a semantic knowledge model, and the implementation and evaluation of a functional prototype.
Master
Utilize Chat Interfaces for Social Bot Creation
Social Bots (software robots) are computer algorithms that automatically produce content and interact with humans on social media. This thesis will utilize chat interfaces and a social bot framework to create social bots. It will also extend the framework to support various social bot types (e.g. chatbots, crawlers, transactional bots or informational bots).
Bachelor, Master
Versioning and Access Management in Web-Based Collaborative Model-Driven Web Engineering
Modern collaborative development practices use agile principles to structure and organize the development process. The tool support for this includes source code management, with the large majority of development teams using Git. While collaboration patterns and access management of cooperation on source code is studied quite well, for MDWE (Model-Driven Web Engineering) processes, where collaboration happens on models instead of (only) source code, this is not yet the case. The thesis should investigate possibilities of versioning and access management for an existing MDWE platform.
Bachelor
Web-based Cluster Deployment for a Large-Scale Distributed Infrastructure
Nowadays, agile development processes use cloud container orchestration platforms for continuous integration, deployment and delivery. Technologies like Docker and Kubernetes are used here as the state-of-the-art cloud-native infrastructures the software is deployed on. However, deployment of heterogeneous service environments, developed by multiple teams with different technical proficiency levels, is not a trivial task. The thesis should investigate possibilities of automatic Web-based deployment of microservices in a Kubernetes cluster.

Bachelor
Data Quality for Fitness of Use
Linked data is gaining new attention in the last years because of its natural connection to knowledge-based applications. The quality of decisions depends heavily on the quality of the underlying data, for reasoning such quality reports are mandatory for each decision. The W3Cs Best Practices Working Groups "Data on the Web Best Practices: Data Quality Vocabulary" defines a vocabulary to archive linking results of data quality assessments to linked data. Also, a basic set of quality dimensions and metrics based on the work of Zaveri et al. (https://dx.doi.org/10.3233/SW-150175) are presented. This thesis aims to fill the gaps between the DQV, the definitions by Zaveri et al. and the realization of linked data quality assessments, to fulfil all requirements to link data quality assessments.
