The Long Night of the Sciences starts digital future

How can a knitted cardigan call for help in case of emergency? What makes a building smart? How should we approach network security and internet privacy? How does digitalisation influences our daily lives? The researchers of the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF) respond to these, and many more questions, on the topic of digitalisation. With the ECDF, Berlin has initiated more than fifty new professors in the core area of digital infrastructure, methods and algorithms, the innovation areas of digital industry and services, digital society and humanities, as well as digital health.

At the Long Night of the Sciences (Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften) on June 24, 2017, visitors can experience unique projects from amongst others, the Technische Universität Berlin, the Charité – Universitätsmedizin, the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin und the Universität der Künste Berlin.

In the Lichthof of the TU Berlin, the Einstein Center Digital Future will present how the partners of the ECDF are connected with the help of an interactive table and game cards. The table is being developed as a research project by the Conscious City Lab of CHORA Conscious City. Furthermore, the first ECDF Junior Professors will present and explain their research. The research of Prof. Dr. Florian Tschorsch surrounds the topics of anonymity and privacy, network security and congestion control, and the research of Prof Dr. Sergio Lucia’s is situated in the field of the internet of things and smart buildings.
