Institute of Knowledge and Information Management (IWI)

Studying Social Media Analysis

The Institute of Knowledge and Information Management (IWI) works on a wide range of issues arising from the digitisation of economy and society. In this context, we focus on the technologies underlying digitisation in order to better understand its effects.
 

In research and teaching, the members of the institute represent topics such as internet technologies, social networks, databases, cryptography, digital identity, data security and protection, digital civil rights, trusted computing, as well as the development of applications and apps in this environment. In addition, methods such as social network analysis or text mining are employed.
Potential areas of application can be found in various fields of science, economy and society.

In teaching, the members of the institute are mainly responsible for the minor 'Social Media and Information Systems'. In addition, they offer individual courses for the complementary studies and the major 'Business Informatics'.
