TU Wien Informatics

About

We perform foundational and applied research and drive development at the confluence of information and software along five thematic streams, with a focus on providing means to allow us to trust the complex socio-technical systems we create and interact with.

Our world consists of complex, dynamic systems, which are growing fast, both with regard to depth and width of the underlying (sub)systems. Within the last decade, ubiquitous web access, the availability of cheap and reliable sensor technology, and various other technologies have led to the collection of big data and to an increasing pervasion of the public space with Information and Communication Technologies. These technologies offer autonomous networked systems, which provide computational resources, offer information, and monitor their environments. As a result, the technical and methodological backbone of complex, dynamic systems like Cyber-Physical Production Systems, Smart Communities, and Intelligent Technologies is growing fast.

This status quo raises important research challenges, such as:

  • What are the characteristics of these novel, complex, and dynamic systems?
  • How to design information systems where humans become part of the system?
  • How to involve people in system design (both for information and software engineering)?
  • How to model the smartness/intelligence of information systems based on what we know about human perception and cognition?
  • Taking into account their high societal impact, how to ensure that these novel systems operate in reliable (trustworthy) and ethically acceptable ways?

Information and Software Engineering is part of the faculty’s Institute of Information Systems Engineering.
