Ready to HUB?

Full speed ahead towards digitization: hub.berlin is turning into a fully-fledged digital trade fair. After the end of CEBIT, the business festival of digitization in Berlin, held for the first time on two days, is likely to become the new marketplace for innovative solutions in AI, big data, blockchain and algorithms. Fraunhofer will therefore be consistently present with a 60 sqm joint stand in 2019.

Programmed for
Challenges

As the largest European ICT research association, the Fraunhofer ICT Group is a contact point for industrial customers and the media. The strengths of the member institutes are strategically bundled and jointly marketed.

News from our member institutes

 

Fraunhofer ITWM / 27.2.2019

Terahertz testing with handheld scanner

Suitable measurement and inspection techniques for process monitoring and quality control are still lacking in some areas of industrial manufacturing.

 

Fraunhofer FKIE / 1.2.2019

Software that automatically detects fake news

Invented stories, distorted facts: fake news is spreading like wildfire on the internet and is often shared on without thought, particularly on social media. In response, Fraunhofer researchers have developed a system that automatically analyzes social media posts, deliberately filtering out fake news and disinformation. To do this, the tool analyzes both content and metadata, classifying it using machine learning techniques and drawing on user interaction to optimize the results as it goes.

 

Fraunhofer IDMT / 15.3.2019

First mobile in-ear headphones with microchip speakers

The Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT and the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicon Technology ISIT are presenting the first battery-powered version of an in-ear headphone with MEMS loudspeaker technology at the 45th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Acoustics (DAGA) in Rostock from 18 to 21 March. Thanks to this research success, the headphones are now ready for mobile use.

 

Fraunhofer IGD / 12.3.2019

Design simulation
redefined

What if, instead of waiting 60 minutes for the results of a simulation, it only took 45 seconds? At Hannover Messe, Fraunhofer IGD will present RISTRA, a GPU structural mechanics solution that accelerates component simulation and optimizes the design process.

 

Fraunhofer HHI / 12.3.2019

Scientists put AI systems to the test

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms such as deep learning are becoming integral parts of ever more areas of our lives: They enable digital language assistants or translation services, improve medical diagnostics and are indispensable for future technologies such as autonomous driving.

 

Fraunhofer SIT / 19.3.2019

Post-Quantum
Cryptography

In the 21st century, we expect as practical application of this theory the development of quantum computers. Quantum computers will be able to break important cryptographic primitives used in today’s digital communication.

The human factor in
artificial intelligence

Fraunhofer IAO focuses on applications for AI in Science Year 2019

 

Fraunhofer SCAI / 18.1.2019

New analysis methods facilitate the evaluation of complex engineering data

A further increase in the performance of supercomputers is expected over the next few years. So-called exascale computers will be able to deliver more precise simulations. This leads to considerably more data. Fraunhofer SCAI develops efficient data analysis methods for this purpose, which provide the engineer with detailed insights into the complex technical contexts.
