Conducting applied research while also going to school: The Interactive Graphics Systems Group at TU Darmstadt makes it possible. The lecture “Ambient Intelligence” is held in close cooperation with Fraunhofer IGD.
This year, girls and boys with a passion for science and technology will once again be able to present their creative and innovative research projects at Germany’s most renowned youth competition. The 2020 South Hessen District Competition will take place on February 20, 2020 at Fraunhofer IGD in Darmstadt.
A research group at Fraunhofer IGD in Darmstadt is following this year’s Oscars with particular interest: “Missing Link” has been nominated for Best Animated Film, in which every single facial expression was 3D-printed with the Cuttlefish software developed in Darmstadt.
Criminals have been finding weaknesses in biometric photos for some time now. “Face morphing”, as it is called, plays not least into the hands of human smugglers. Fraunhofer IGD technology is helping uncover forged documents and make IDs more forgery-proof.
Like every year, Fraunhofer IGD was looking for the brightest heads of visual computing at the Computer Graphics Night. The jury, consisting of scientists from Fraunhofer IGD and chairs associated with the institute, had no easy task this year either. Now, however, the winners have been chosen. Once again, we would like to congratulate and thank the numerous guests who contributed to a wonderful winter evening in the 21st edition.
In the Fraunhofer lighthouse project “futureAM – Next Generation Additive Manufacturing,” an alliance of six Fraunhofer institutes shall accelerate 3D printing with metal powder by at least a factor of ten. The first tangible results prove that this is not a dream of the future.
Europe’s largest IT security convention is just one week away. As part of the National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity in Darmstadt, Fraunhofer IGD will naturally be in attendance, with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jörn Kohlhammer, head of the Information Visualization and Visual Analytics Competence Center, among our representatives. Prof. Kohlhammer and his team develop solutions, strategies and technology for visualizing crucial data for cybersecurity. Their focus is on the following areas:
