Dr.-Ing. habil. Mario Kubek
Mario Kubek obtained PhD in April 2012 from FernUniversität in Hagen with a dissertation on locally working algorithms to improve the search for web documents. Contextual information processing in mobile computing environments is another research interest of mine. He was also a postdoctoral researcher at the Chair of Communication Networks of the FernUniversität in Hagen, Germany. His research focus is on natural language processing, text mining and semantic information retrieval in large distributed systems. Currently Mario Kubek works for the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, FernUniversität in Hagen, Germany.
Current research topic: Context-based and interactive search for and with text documents
The search application DocAnalyser developed at the chair of communication networks is a new service that offers a novel way to interactively search for similar and related web documents and to track topics without the need to enter search queries manually. The user just needs to provide a web content to be analysed. This is usually the web page (or a specific part of it) currently viewed in the web browser. DocAnalyser then extracts its main topics and their sources (important inherent, influential aspects / basics) and uses them as search words. The returned search words and web search results are generally of high quality. This is mainly due to the implemented state-of-the-art graph-based extraction of keywords of the texts provided. Usually, the currently analysed web document is found again among the Top-10 search results which underlines and confirms this statement. Therefore, this tool can also be used to some extent to detect plagiarism in the WWW.
The service DocAnalyser is offered free of charge by the chair of communication networks.
