Webis Group (Leipzig University, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg)
The Webis Group addresses challenges of the information society through basic research, developing technology, and implementing and evaluating prototypes for future information systems.
Within the OpenWebSearch.EU project, Prof. Martin Potthast (Leipzig University), Prof. Benno Stein (Bauhaus-Universität Weimar), and Prof. Matthias Hagen (Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg) collaborate on the problems of Web archive analytics and the development of machine learning-based retrieval models, both of which form the basis for intelligent web search applications jointly developed as part of the project.
“Search is considered the key to free information on the Web – Open Search is the key to a free and diverse society.” says Prof. Dr. Martin Potthast (Webis Group, Leipzig University)
“Our project will make an important contribution to the democratization of index creation for future search engines.” says Prof. Dr. Benno Stein (Webis Group, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar)
