    The Getty and Fraunhofer IGD Cultural Heritage Digitization Competence Center successfully collaborated in 2016/17, and have now joined forces again. Their previous project was a musical matter: they created a scaled-down 3D model of the Berlin Philharmonic concert hall. This time around, the focus is on the visual arts. The J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Research Institute, and Getty Conservation Institute possess a broad range of objects, from full-length sculptures and busts to furniture.

    Data@Hand detects deviations from the normal operation of a ma-chine

    At Booth A30 in Hall 6 at the 2019 Hanover Trade Fair the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD will be presenting Data@Hand, a basic automated data analysis technology for a variety of application scenarios. Data@Hand detects deviations from the normal operation of a machine, a component or a production installation - and can also be used in medicine. It optimizes processes on the basis of artificial intelligence using principles of machine learning.
