“Special circumstances require special solutions” – This was the motto of this week’s ICT institute meeting, which was not held in the TU’s meeting room but in the home offices of all our employees.
These regular meetings are used for coordination between the various research groups, teaching and the organizational tasks of the institute. This year, however, there was another important topic on the agenda: After four years as head of the institute, Prof. Hermann Kaindl was succeeded by Prof. Axel Jantsch. In order to hand over the sceptre despite the prevailing corona measures, the institute meeting was quickly converted into a video conference. The productive meeting was only interrupted by a short solo performance of a four-legged roommate, but could be quickly resumed afterwards. The most important point of the meeting was of course the current effects of the Corona crisis on research and teaching. The ICT is working intensively to continue current research projects and to carry on teaching in the best possible way for the students within the given limits.
We wish Prof. Jantsch every success in his new position!
All the best and good health in these extraordinary times!
The future incumbent’s field of work should be Autonomous
Systems, with a focus on one or more of the following:
– Safety and reliability Engineering
– Risk modelling, analysis and management
– Artificial intelligence (in particular
machine learning, big data analytics)
– Decision making, decision support systems and
– Self-organizing systems
– Human-machine systems.
The chair is expected to complement already existing
research areas at the faculty with respect to autonomous systems: mechatronics,
sensors and actuators, optimization, systems theory and control, robot control,
path planning, vision systems, sensor fusion and perception, and
Furthermore, this chair is expected to build up an
interdisciplinary research group, that will study and develop solutions for
challenges of real autonomous systems both theoretically and through
How to embed artificial intelligence in a compact and resource-saving manner in technical systems is now being investigated in a new Christian Doppler laboratory at the TU Wien. Machine learning is one of the major future topics in the IT industry. You don’t just let a computer process a series of ready-made commands, you develop systems that can be trained and learned. In this way, tasks can be mastered that can hardly be solved in any other way.
The new laboratory will open on March 2nd, 2020. It is supported by the Bundesministerium für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort (BMDW) and the company partners Mission Embedded GmbH, Siemens Austria and AVL List. TU Graz is also involved in the project as a scientific partner.
On March 2nd 2020, the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Embedded Machine Learning will be officially opened. The research topic is machine learning in embedded hardware with limited resources. Especially deep learning in object recognition will be emphasized. Possible applications of the research are self-driving cars, pedestrian detection and airplane tracking.
We look for students at Bachelor, Master and PhD level!
For the third time in a row, the Institute of Computer Technology is proud to have won both Best Teaching Awards!
We congratulate Dipl.-Ing. Maximilian Götzinger as Best Teacher and the team of the course Digitale Systeme UE (Dr. Friedrich Bauer, Dipl.-Ing. Daniel Hauer, Dipl.-Ing. Maximilian Götzinger) for the award Best Lecture.
Many thanks to all the students who once again voted our institute the one with the best lectures!
ICT is proud to have been nominated for the Best Teaching Awards 2019 in both categories (Best Lecture and Best Teacher) – again!We are looking forward to the price-giving on June 13 and keep our fingers crossed for our nominees!
