Research

Michael Färber's publications.

Research Interests

  • natural language processing,
  • machine learning, and
  • knowledge representation (e.g., knowledge graphs).


Among other things, Michael Färber pursues research on scholarly data mining (e.g., scientific impact quantification), scholarly recommender systems (e.g., recommending citations, papers, data sets, and neural networks), and scholarly knowledge graphs (e.g., modeling papers, authors, methods, and datasets). Furthermore, he develops AI solutions for peace mediation (see AI4Peace).

More information can be found at his homepage and on Google Scholar.

Online Demo Systems

Recently developed demonstration systems:

  • RefBee: http://refbee.org/
    • ...shows for an author which publications are in which bibliographic databases.
  • C-Rex: http://c-rex.org
    • ... recommends citations for given texts.
  • PaperHunter: http://paperhunter.net
    • ... provides, among other things, the sentences in which searched papers are cited.
  • ScholarSight: http://scholarsight.org
    • ... allows the exploration of trends from scientific concepts.
  • Linked Crunchbase: http://linked-crunchbase.org
    • ... allows to query information about startups and innovative companies in the Semantic Web format RDF.


Data Sets

Recently created data sets:

  • DSKG: http://dskg.org
    • ...a knowledge graph representing datasets.
  • unarXive: http://unarxive.org
    • ... contains the full texts of all papers on arXive.org with further annotations.
  • Microsoft Academic Knowledge Graph: https://makg.org
    • ... a knowledge graph containing the metadata of almost all publications in all scientific disciplines.
  • FAIRnets: https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3885249
    • ...a knowledge graph with metadata about neural networks.


Code, Data, and Presentations

  • The implementations are linked in the publications and can usually be found on GitHub.
  • Created datasets are linked in the publications and can usually be found on Zenodo.
  • Presentations can be found on YouTube.

I have supervised more than 50 Bachelor/Master theses.
All topics are open to English and German-speaking students.

Theses Abroad

Many of the thesis topics can also be written at a partner institution abroad (e.g. in Japan, Italy, France) and funded by the DAAD, given that the application is made 7 months in advance. In the past, theses supervised by Dr. Färber were already funded. More information under Web_Science/DAAD-Stipendium/en.
