Master
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).

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 or data lineage (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, as well as the existing factlib.js library for semi-automatic provenance tracking, that was developed as a result of previous work.

Blockchain-based Verification of Learning Analytics Data
Posted on 11. Dec 2019; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR, Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke; Advisor(s): Peter de Lange, M.Sc.
The goal of this thesis is to make collected Learning Analytics data, extracted from various Learning Management Systems, traceable and verifiable by keeping a reference to the monitored data on the las2peer Blockchain. The thesis should investigate related work in the domain of educational usage of Blockchain technology. The developed extension should integrate into the existing project's infrastructure and provide learners and their mentors/tutors with a tool to explore when and what kind of data was collected. By improving this traceability, we hope to increase the trust in the data collection (and its usage) from both learners and mentors.
Bachelor

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.

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.

Persistent Association of Virtual Objects in Mixed Reality
Posted on 19. Feb 2020; Supervised by PD Dr. Ralf Klamma, AOR; Advisor(s): Benedikt Hensen, M.Sc.
A mixed reality environment immerses users in a three-dimensional space. This allows them to organize digital content in the entire room, e.g. task cards in immersive project management. A natural way to sort related objects is by placing them close to each other. However, this kind of spatial co-location of objects is not enough to stress their relation to each other. If another user who is unaware of the association moves one of the objects, the spatial connection is lost. Hence, lines in 3D space are required which establish a visual and persistent connection between the objects. In a previous project, an initial system was implemented which uses straight lines to connect the objects. However, straight lines have some shortcomings since they intersect with obstacles between the two endpoints. A better connection system can use 3D curves to avoid the obstacles in an efficient way.

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.
