The supercomputers of tomorrow need new software to perform a billion billion computer operations per second
A billion billion, i.e. 1018 computer operations per second (1 exaflop/s) is the level of performance that the next generation of supercomputers should be able to deliver. However, programming such supercomputers is a challenge. ...
GLASSCHAIR - Get Mobile. Independently.
Mobility constitutes an indispensable aspect of everyday life that is usually taken for granted. Nevertheless, there are many people indeed, whose mobility options are so heavily constrained that their movement is only possible through external help. GLASSCHAIR eliminates this dependence:...
Prof. Hans-Arno Jacobsen
Prof. Hans-Arno Jacobsen enjoys the reputation of a leading, international, technically adept researcher on the threshold between informatics, information technology and information systems.
IdeaStream - Situative Creativity Support
Touch based multi display environments provide an ideal basis for co-located creativity support due to their potential benefits in regard to communication, coordination and interpretation. This video demonstrates an example application supporting collaborative creativity techniques on a tabletop display combined with coupled iPad devices.
Computational Biologist Prof. Burkhard Rost
Burkhard Rost is one of the researchers who has decisively shaped the development of bioinformatics into the indispensable discipline we know today. In 2008 Rost came from Columbia University to the Technical University Munich.
Balancing Exploration and Exploitation in Motion Planning
Computationally efficient motion planning avoids exhaustive exploration of high-dimensional configuration spaces by leveraging the structure present in real-world planning problems.
Tracking in real-time rigid, articulated and deformable targets such as people, body parts and objects, is a very important task for the perception-cognition-action loop of technical systems.
