    Hybrid conversational AI for intelligent tutoring systems
    (Sun SITE, Informatik V, RWTH Aachen, 2021) Pande, Charuta; Witschel, Hans Friedrich; Martin, Andreas; Montecchiari, Devid; Martin, Andreas; Hinkelmann, Knut; Fill, Hans-Georg; Gerber, Aurona; Lenat, Dough; Stolle, Reinhard; Harmelen, Frank van [in: Proceedings of the AAAI 2021 Spring Symposium on Combining Machine Learning and Knowledge Engineering (AAAI-MAKE 2021)]
    We present an approach to improve individual and self-regulated learning in group assignments. We focus on supporting individual reflection by providing feedback through a conversational system. Our approach leverages machine learning techniques to recognize concepts in student utterances and combines them with knowledge representation to infer the student’s understanding of an assignment’s cognitive requirements. The conversational agent conducts end-to-end conversations with the students and prompts them to reflect and improve their understanding of an assignment. The conversational agent not only triggers reflection but also encourages explanations for partial solutions.

    Learning and engineering similarity functions for business recommenders
    (2019) Witschel, Hans Friedrich; Martin, Andreas; Martin, Andreas; Hinkelmann, Knut; Gerber, Aurona; Lenat, Doug; Harmelen, Frank van; Clark, Peter [in: Proceedings of the AAAI 2019 Spring Symposium on Combining Machine Learning with Knowledge Engineering (AAAI-MAKE 2019)]
    We study the optimisation of similarity measures in tasks where the computation of similarities is not directly visible to end users, namely clustering and case-based recommenders. In both, similarity plays a crucial role, but there are also other algorithmic components that contribute to the end result. Our suggested approach introduces a new form of interaction into these scenarios that make the use of similarities transparent to end users and thus allows to gather direct feedback about similarity from them. This happens without distracting them from their goal – rather allowing them to obtain better and more trustworthy results by excluding dissimilar items. We then propose to use the feedback in a way that incorporates machine learning for updating weights and decisions of knowledge engineers about possible additional features, based on insights derived from a summary of user feedback. The reviewed literature and our own previous empirical investigations suggest that this is the most feasible way – involving both machine and human, each in a task that they are particularly good at.

    Workplace Learning - Providing Recommendations of Experts and Learning Resources in a Context-sensitive and Personalized Manner
    (2016) Emmenegger, Sandro; Laurenzi, Emanuele; Thönssen, Barbara; Zhang Sprenger, Congyu; Hinkelmann, Knut; Witschel, Hans Friedrich [in: Proceedings of Special Session on Learning Modeling in Complex Organizations (LCMO) at MODELSWARD'16]
    Support of workplace learning is increasingly important as change in every form determines today's working world in industry and public administrations alike. Adapt quickly to a new job, a new task or a new team is a major challenge that must be dealt with ever faster. Workplace learning differs significantly from school learning as it should be strictly aligned to business goals. In our approach we support workplace learning by providing recommendations of experts and learning resources in a context-sensitive and personalized manner. We utilize user s' workplace environment, we consider their learning preferences and zone of proximal development, and compare required and acquired competencies in order to issue the best suited recommendations. Our approach is part of the European funded project Learn PAd. Applied research method is Design Science Research. Evaluation is done in an iterative process. The recommender system introduced here is evaluated theoretically based on user requirements and practically in an early evaluation process conducted by the Learn PAd application partner.

    KPIs 4 Workplace Learning
    (Springer, 2016) Emmenegger, Sandro; Thönssen, Barbara; Hinkelmann, Knut; Witschel, Hans Friedrich; Ana, Fred; Aveiro, David [in: Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Knowledge Management and Information Sharing (KMIS)]
    Enterprises and Public Administrations alike need to ensure that newly hired employees are able to learn the ropes fast. Employers also need to support continuous workplace learning. Work-place learning should be strongly related to business goals and thus, learning goals should direct-ly add to business goals. To measure achievement of both learning and business goals we pro-pose augmented Key Performance Indicators (KPI). In our research we applied model driven engineering. Hence we developed a model for a Learning Scorecard comprising of business and learning goals and their KPIs represented in an ontology. KPI performance values and scores are calculated with formal rules based on the SPARQL Inferencing Notation. Results are presented in a dashboard on an individual level as well as on a team/group level. Requirements, goals and KPIs as well as performance measurement were defined in close co-operation with Marche Region, business partner in Learn PAd.

    Auswahl der richtigen Wissensmanagement-Methoden
    (W. Gassmann, 2012) Hinkelmann, Knut; Witschel, Hans Friedrich [in: Blickpunkt KMU]
    Einerseits sind die Notwendigkeit für einen adäquaten Umgang mit der Ressource "Wissen" und der daraus resultierende potenzielle Gewinn für ein Unternehmen allgemein anerkannt. Andererseits entwickeln sich längst nicht alle Wissensmanagement-Projekte in der Praxis zu Erfolgsgeschichten. Im Gegenteil: selbst beim Einsatz vermeintlich bewährter Wissensmanagement-Strategien kommt es immer wieder vor, dass grossen Investitionen seitens eines Unternehmens am Ende kaum beobachtbare Verbesserungen gegenüberstehen. Häufigste Ursache hierfür ist die mangelnde Akzeptanz der implementierten Lösungen bei den Mitarbeitern.
