About CER

The research activities of the CER group are summarised here.

Today's organisations collect data in various structured and unstructured digital formats. In particular, the abundance and continuous growth of networks of different types of sensor has led to corresponding data streams, which are hard to handle and utilize in the decision-making process of organizations. The analysis and interpretation of the collected data needs to be automated, in order for large data volumes to be transformed into operational knowledge. Events are particularly important pieces of knowledge, as they represent activities of special significance within an organisation. Therefore, the "recognition of events" is of utmost importance.
