How do questions of Security and Privacy will shape our relation to technologies like Blockchain and cloud computing? What can we learn from the human body for developing automated systems? Where should we build the data centers of the future?

On November 22, five new professors of the Faculty of Informatics gave insights into their work and discussed together with Hannes Werthner, Dean of the Faculty, the newest findings and trending topics of Computing – from high performance computing and big data to classical and non-classical logics, from security to new computer architecture.

5 new professors at the Faculty of Informatics

The panel discussed how the fields of the new professors will shape the future of Computing. What are the newest research findings and how do they affect society? In the discussion, it came out that interdisciplinarity as well as cooperation within the fields of Informatics need to play an essential role in responding to rapidly evolving technologies. Matteo Maffei suggested to “leave the comfort zone” for collaborating with new partners. “We need human creativity everywhere”, Ivona Brandic stated. The complete lecture and discussion was recorded. The video will be soon published on our youtube channel.
