The research group of Databases and Information Systems at RUB devises novel techniques for managing decentralized data, information, and knowledgedge with a focus on query optimization, federated query processing, and data quality.

As part of our research, we also study the application of Machine Learning approaches to solve diverse problems in Data and Knowledge Management. For example, we leverage latent features from sub-symbolic representations of knowledge to uncover hidden patterns that can be used to predict missing assertions or properties in knowledge bases.
