Advanced Seminar toward Visual Analaytics in next Summer Semester at h_da/FBI (computer science)

In the upcoming summer semester 2020, our doctoral students provide an advanced seminar at the department of computer science at the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences. The topic of the seminar will be toward “Visual Analytics for Smart Manufacturing and Trend Analysis”:

Due to the increasing digitization, analyzes are a constant necessity, which also applies to the identification of errors, problems or opportunities for improvement. With visual analytics, the combination of algorithmic and massive calculation opportunities of computer-based systems on the one side as well as the visual and cognitive skills of the users on the other side are used together. The seminar focuses on the use of visual analytics in the two current areas of smart manufacturing and trend analysis. On behalf of the given task, current approaches, methods and implementations should be researched and examined. The goal should be a scientific elaboration based on empirical and scientific standards.

Interested students are invited to register soon, since the number of places will be limited.

Information Science: The new degree program at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences

Digitization contributes to the accumulation of knowledge in immense amounts of data, but often unstructured and widely scattered. Information Scientists bring this knowledge together and make it usable for business and society. The new study program Information Science at the University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt (h_da) trains students to become experts in the professional handling of data, information and knowledge. The bachelor and master program starts for the first time in the winter semester 2019/20 and replaces the previous course Information Science. Applications are possible from the 15th of May.

“Since digitization processes and rapid technological changes have a major impact on companies, information scientists also contribute to future and innovation processes,” emphasizes Prof. Dr. Kawa Nazemi. He is in charge of the bachelor’s and master’s degree program Information Science. His graduates also qualify for leadership positions in companies, institutions, media organizations, administrations or libraries as well as for research activities. The master’s degree also qualifies for a doctorate. There are perspectives at the Hochschule Darmstadt in the cross-university doctoral program “Applied Computer Science”, in which research group is involved.

Global Strategic Alliance

Professor Nazemi represented the Research Group on Human-Computer Interaction and Visual Analytics at the first “Global Strategic Alliance” hosted by the Coventry University. The fruitful discussions on various topics led to new research networks and potential research topics. Attendees were from the Coventry University, Purdue University, Dublin Institute of Technology, University of Wisconsin Stout, Lucerne University of Applied Science and Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences.
