A computer science master’s student at Saarland University shows in his thesis how to produce high-quality fine art printings using commonly available inkjet printers. To achieve this, he has developed an algorithm that can analyze and reproduce a painting down to its optical fingerprint.
Christian Theobalt, head of the Graphics, Vision & Video research group at the Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics in Saarbrücken, has been appointed a scientific member by the Max-Planck-Society. As scientific director at the Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics, he will head a new department conducting research on fundamental questions in informatics at the intersection of computer graphics, image recognition and artificial intelligence.
Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease in the world, yet little is known about its causes and progression. To diagnose it early, make prognoses and develop therapies, biomarkers that indicate the development and course of the disease are needed. Bioinformaticians at Saarland University have been searching for such biomarkers, focusing on ribonucleic acids (RNA). In their study, which is now published in the journal ‘Nature Aging‘, they show that [...]
The “Symposium on Theoretical Aspects of Computer Science” is among the most important international conferences in theoretical computer science. This year, the event will be held entirely digitally, hosted by the Saarland Informatics Campus at Saarland University. From March 16 – 18, computer scientists from all over the world will discuss fundamental computer science topics such as algorithms and data structures, automata and formal languages, complexity, but also current topics such as quantum computing.
The Ursula Hill-Samelson Teacher’s prize goes to Leonore Dietrich from Bad Krozingen. The prize is awarded by the MNU – Verband zur Förderung des MINT-Unterrichts (Association for the Promotion of STEM Education) and funded by the Computer Science at Saarland University. The award, which is worth 2500 euros, is given to teachers from all over Germany who have made an outstanding contribution to the school subject of computer science. The award ceremony took place digitally during the 112th Federal Congress of the MNU.
