Excerpt: As writen before Steffen and I participated in the online voting for the MOOC fellowship. Today the competition finished and I would like to say thank you to everyone who so far participated in the voting in particular to the 435 people supporting our course. I did never image to get that many people to be interested in our course! The voting period went from May first till today. During this period the user interface of the iversity website changed several times providing different kind of information about the voting to us users. Since I have observed a drastic change in…

Excerpt: I promised to create some screen casts for the autocomplete service with GWT based on neo4j. After I have created all the screencasts I had to go through quite some hassle in order to do so. So let me share my experience and toolchain in order to produce a somewhat accaptable screen cast. I am still not happy with the quality of the results and if you have any suggestions feel free to tell me. First of all you download and install recordmydesktop. Once this is done you can just do a screencast by calling the following line. recordmydesktop –quick-subsampling –full-shots –no-shared…

Excerpt: Over one year ago I was starting to think about indexing scored stings for auto completion queries. I stumbled upon this problem after seeing the strength of the predictions of  the typology approach for next word prediction on smartphones. The typology approach had one major drawback: Though its suggestions had a high precision the speed with 50 milliseconds per suggestion was rather slow especially when working on a server side application. On August 16 th 2012 I found a first solution building on Nicolai Diethelms Suggest Tree. Though the speedup was great the suggest tree at this time had several major…

Excerpt: I am asking you for a big favor in this blog post! You can help me to achieve one of my childhood dreams: I am an enthusiastic teacher and love to share information (as you might have seen by reading my blog) Over the last month I have designed a structure for an online course on Web Science together with a short video. In this blog post I will introduce the course to you but I am also asking you to vote for the course since only 10 of the 250 courses that applied for the fellowship will be sponsored…

Excerpt: In July 2012 we taught a course for the German National Summer School for high school students. The course consisted of 50 hours over 14 days. Due to some specific settings of the Summer School we had to make a few adjustments to the format of our curriculum and lectures. Still we gathered some good experiences for future teaching. The main lesson learnt was that knowledge of the Internet protocol suite contributes to a better understanding of the decentralized and open aspects of the web. This leads to a better comprehension of the ethical aspects of the web like net…

Excerpt: During the past two months I invested quite some of my spare free time to contribute to the organization of the open access event Rigor and Openness in 21st century science which will take place in the University of Oxford on April 11th and 12th. The Idea of the conference came up during Heinrich’s time in Oxford where he and me have been working a lot on related work and he was working closely together with people from the Akorn project (c.f. Heinrichs blog article why openess benefits research) Thanks to a great effort of the organizing team (mostly students from…

Excerpt: Hey everyone after posting my first screencast in this series reviewing the basic process for creating remote procedure calls in GWT we are now finally starting with the real tutorial for building an autocomplete service. This tutorial (again hosted on wikipedia) covers the basic user interface meaning how to integreate a SuggestBox instead of a textfield into the GWT Starter project how to set up the neccessary stuff (extending a SuggestOracle) to fire a remote procedure call that requests suggestions if the user has typed something. how to override the necessary methods from the SuggestOracle Interface So here we go with the second part of…

Excerpt: Quite a while ago I promised to create some screencasts on how to build a (personalized) Autocompletion in GWT. Even though the screencasts have been created for quite some time now I had to wait publishing them for various reasons. Finally it is now the time to go public with the first video. I do really start from scratch. So the first video might be a little bit boaring since I am only reviewing the Remote Procedure calls of GWT. A litte Note: The video is hosted on Wikipedia! I think it is important to spread knowledge under a creative commons…
