Battery in Focus: Computer Scientists optimize operation of Nano-Satellites in orbit

They are about the size of a shoebox, high-tech, and soon tens of thousands of them will be orbiting the earth – so called nano-satellites. They can, for example, take high-resolution photos of our planet, or reinforce telecommunications networks. However, these actions take energy and this resource is scarce in the compact high-tech devices. Computer scientists at Saarland University now show how the energy consumption of satellites can be planned in such a way that they always work optimally [...]

Saarbrücken professors of computer science reach top positions in AI ranking

The “AI Rankings” platform lists researchers from all over the world who work on topics related to artificial intelligence (AI) and ranks them according to their publication output. The website thus aims to address the growing interest in research on artificial intelligence and to provide an overview of the lively research activities in the field. A good dozen professors of computer science from Saarland University and the surrounding research institutes occupy top positions in national [...]

Student project at Saarland University receives high federal funding

The master’s program “Entrepreneurial Cybersecurity” at Saarland University combines cyber security and computer science with founding an own company. The aim is to to make current research topics feasible for the market. A project of the first students who graduated from the program will be funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for one year with about half a million Euros.

Wearable IT devices: Dyeing process gives textiles electronic properties

Whether in fitness, medicine or in the entertainment industry, IT devices worn on the body, such as smart watches, are becoming increasingly popular. Such wearables benefit from the input device fitting as naturally as possible to the body – for example as electro-sensitive fabrics, so-called e-textiles. Computer scientists at Saarland University show how these special textiles can be produced in a comparatively easy way, thus opening up new use cases.

Student lab aims to increase children’s and young people’s understanding of computer science

How can I get a drone to perform little tricks? Is it difficult to program a robot? And how does a machine actually learn? Children and young people can deal with questions like these in the Computer Science lab for schoolchildren. At present, the lab mainly offers online services aimed at students of different ages and also at teaching staff. They aim to promote the understanding of computer science in society as a whole.
