The team of Hallo Welt! and BlueSpice research and develop new technologies.
In cooperation with partners from industry and science, we create innovative solutions.
WiBe-Back | Chatbot and AI implementation
The project WiBe-Back, in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV and the Bakery Möbius, aims to combine wikis and artificial intelligence to make better use of knowledge in small and medium-sized enterprises.
The project is focused on bakeries, where experiential knowledge is digitally captured and made accessible using a Wiki. An intelligent ontology improves the search function and a chatbot enables easy access to the knowledge. This innovative project combines research, software development and business practice to revolutionize knowledge management.
BlueSpice CollabPad | Collaborative editing of pages
Our development project CollabPad enhances the existing visual editor enabling BlueSpice to support simultaneous authoring in the future.
Collaborative writing (also: “simultaneous editing”, “real-time parallel editing” or “real-time co-authoring”) is known from word processing programs. It eliminates editing conflicts with other authors and, most importantly, allows minutes, reports, and draft texts to be completed and updated by multiple participants during a meeting. This increases the efficiency of your meetings. For this purpose, the Wikimedia Foundation’s experimental CollabPad implementation will be stabilized. It also adds functionality to the existing visual editor and specific enhancements to BlueSpice.
PRODgrid | Intelligent infrared grid with embedded AI status detection
In this research project, an innovative monitoring system for machine-based production environments is being developed. It uses intelligent infrared sensors above the production area. With the help of AI algorithms, it detects problems such as wear, leaks and safety risks in real time.
The system focuses on automated manufacturing areas such as automotive production and electronics manufacturing. Hallo Welt! is responsible for developing an edge controller for the infrared sensors and implementing the AI algorithms for condition detection.
Secure Wiki | Page verification via cryptographic methods (hash chains)
The authenticity and trustworthiness of data stored in wikis can be proven using cryptographic methods. For this purpose, inblock.io assets GmbH has developed a prototype to secure wiki data using hash chains. Among other things, this makes digital signatures possible. Documents are securely signed and traceable with the help of BlueSpice workflows.
The technology also enables an integrity check of the data and thus protects against manipulation by hackers. Last but not least, it forms the basis for an e-notary service (“Cryptographic Timestamping”): Digital proof of existence prevents the forgery of contracts and documents. Hallo Welt!, as a technology partner, integrates the solution prototypically into a BlueSpice Enterprise Wiki.
WebBoMTool | Tool to create open source BoMs for web applications
The WebBoMTool project aims to develop software that automatically generates bills of materials (BoMs) of PHP-based software products and projects. These BoMs are critical for delivering up-to-date information to customers with each software delivery.
Current methods require the manual creation of BoMs, which is inefficient for complex systems. Our solution provides software that helps users create and maintain BoMs. At the same time, it uses machine learning and heuristics to automatically analyze the code and incrementally submit it to the user for validation. This automates the process and improves the accuracy of the BoMs. Hallo Welt! acts as an open-source technology partner here.
DongleAuth | Secure and dynamic access management for wiki-based cloud services
The research project DongleAuth of “GEFITS Gesellschaft für intelligente technische Systeme mbH” and Hallo Welt! GmbH aims to develop a dongle that revolutionizes access management to wiki-based cloud services.
The dongle, which connects wireless via WLAN or Bluetooth to common client devices (smartphone, PC, laptop, tablet), enables access to cloud wikis. All data transfer between the client applications and the cloud wiki servers is routed via the dongle’s hardware. The dongle structures and encrypts the data streams and checks them for plausibility and integrity. Access rights are not managed statically by the dongle, but dynamically, in particular depending on user roles, partial content releases, release periods, location of the dongle, network names, freely configurable additional content status data, etc.
In addition, the dongle can access sensors present in the client device (such as camera, touchpad or microphone) to provide additional personal identification. Any combination of these parameters is possible for authorizations. Multi-factor authentication is also possible with the dongle.

WikiProd | Electronic shift book and documentation system
The aim of this project is an efficient electronic logging of daily activities and events in the shift operation as well as a sustainable documentation of the machines concerned.
The previous recording in at least three formats (shift book, SAP, time sheet and possibly day shift book) appears redundant and is to be replaced by a uniform mask. This will promote and simplify communication between shifts. To this end, a system is being created that uses a combination of microblog and wiki to both collect and archive daily information and provide long-term documentation for individual machines. Hallo Welt! developed the prototype in this project on the basis of an enterprise wiki.
