Location(s): Nürnberg

The topic of the master thesis will be the design and application of semantic models for interactive language-based user interfaces in industrial contexts.
Delivering unambiguous, consistent and comprehensive information in interactive Question & Answer scenarios is a fundamental requirement for language-based user interfaces in industry. At Schaeffler, a model-based enterprise knowledge graph based on open Semantic Web standard technologies takes care of structuring the necessary information and providing access to data. Via a conversational interface users can ask about specific contents and must be provided with reliable and explainable results.
The basic prerequisite for writing a thesis is a Schaeffler non-disclosure agreement signed by the university supervisor and proof of enrollment. The position is to be filled from 11.01.2021.

  • Analyze and compare the underlying concepts, patterns, modelling paradigms and dynamics
  • Evaluate and advance the identified approaches
  • Create a prototypical implementation of the approaches using the W3C standards RDF(S)/OWL
  • Derive guidelines and best practices for the software architecture and functionality of such language- and content-driven interactive user interfaces
