    Deutsche und russische Forschende verbessern gemeinsam das Tuning von Supercomputeranwendungen

    Um die Effizienz von Programmen auf Supercomputern besser zu verstehen, setzen Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler auf Leistungsmessungen. Diese spiegeln jedoch auch zufällige Verzögerungen wider, zum Beispiel verursacht durch andere, gleichzeitig laufende Programme. Die Leistungsfähigkeit des eigentlichen Algorithmus ist so nur schwer zu bewerten. In einem deutsch-russischen Kooperationsprojekt, koordiniert von Informatikprofessor Felix Wolf an der TU Darmstadt, arbeiten Partner aus Darmstadt, Jülich und Moskau an weniger empfindlichen Analysemethoden.

    Department of Computer Science is AI partner in radiology network against COVID-19

    The AI-ready healthcare project creates the world's largest infrastructure for the consistently structured acquisition and analysis of radiological data about pandemics.

    A total of 36 German university hospitals, two research institutes and the Technical University of Darmstadt have joined forces to combat COVID-19 in the BMBF project RACOON. The aim is to record and evaluate radiological findings in a structured and thus machine-readable way. This is one step towards making healthcare ready for Artificial Intelligence (AI).

    The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of the Netzwerk Universitätsmedizin.
