Building bridges between medicine and data science
At HIDSS4Health, health and data science research projects are brought together in a unique doctoral program – with synergistic effects for the participating cooperation partners, the international doctoral students, and medical progress. An insight into an unusual graduate school.
Helmholtz Data Science Career Day #2
The interest in starting a career in data science is greater than ever - the overwhelming response from all over the world to the second Helmholtz Data Science Career Day shows this impressively. A review.
Challenges in 3 D
Get out of pandemic isolation and get to the computers: that was the motto for the participants of the H^3 Helmholtz Autumn Hackathon in September 2021, who worked in direct exchange with each other again for the first time.
"This is an ideal way of promoting networks"
The state of Baden-Württemberg is a major funder of HIDSS4Health and is providing over 1,2 million euros of additional funding for the school for 2021 to 2024. But what was it about the HIDSS4Health concept that impressed policymakers? We spoke with Dr. Simone Schwanitz, Senior Ministry Official at the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, to learn more.
Data in the Permafrost
An excursion into permafrost research: For three months, Ngai Ham Chan from GFZ visited the PermaRisk research group at AWI with the HIDA Trainee Network. What did he learn there about climate change and data science methods?
Climate change on our plates
Threatened potato crop: Sabine Egerer from Helmholtz Zentrum Hereon used Data Science to research what the future of agriculture might look like under climate change, using potatoes as an example - an exchange with the HIDA Trainee Network helped.
Predicting COVID-19 progression
How can we tell at a relatively early stage whether a Covid-19 patient might develop a severe course? Data scientists tried to find an answer during the HIDA International Virtual COVID-Data Challenge.
Collecting data in flight
The ISTAR is intended to help expand the knowledge of automated and unmanned flying. What is special about DLR's new research aircraft is that it has a digital twin. It collects all the data that the real aircraft generates during its missions.
Data-Challenges: More than a competition
Data challenges can help make the development of new algorithms more effective by improving the comparability of data. Lena Meier-Hein from DKFZ spoke at this year's Big-DATA.AI Summit about insights from challenges on biomedical image analysis.
"The conventional training paths are no longer sufficient"
DASHH is creating entirely new scientific collaborations in Northern Germany. We spoke with Senate Director Rolf Greve about the potential of interdisciplinarity and the importance of the School for Hamburg.
HDS-LEE is growing
Scientists at HDS-LEE have recently acquired three new large-scale AI projects. This means: new PhD researchers at the School, an even stronger network of partner institutions and, of course, many cutting-edge data science subjects to work on.
Calculating solar power reliably
Klaus Jäger is a physicist working in the Department of Solar Energy Optics at Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin. His research project Predicting temperature dependent solar-module performance is part of this year's Helmholtz & Israel Exchange - a good opportunity for young data scientists to gain research experience abroad.
Healing by gene therapy?
Deciphering the gene regulatory codes in our cells could improve the treatment of numerous diseases such as cancer or rheumatism in the future. MUDS doctoral researcher Laura Martens wants to contribute to this with her data science expertise.
Biology of diseases
A precise understanding of the human genome can help to better understand the development of diseases. Manolis Kellis from MIT explains how AI can be used to treat some diseases in the future. A video podcast.
Art meets science
HIDA and the Academy for Theatre and Digitality Dortmund together announce a research fellowship for artists, technicians, and scientists who want to work at the intersection of digital art and cutting-edge digital research.
Hope for diabetics
Diabetes is still incurable. But with the help of data science, this could soon change. At MUDS, Karin Hrovatin is researching the cells involved in insulin production. The goal is to stimulate hormone production again in the future.
The data goldsmith
Every day, more than 21 terabytes of data from Earth observation satellites flow into DLR's Earth Observation Center (EOC). Today, the vast amounts of data are processed into image and information products with the help of AI and used in research.
Software Assistant for Oncologists
At the German Cancer Research Center, HIDSS4Health-researcher Paula Breitling contributes to the development of a software that aims to help doctors recommend appropriate therapies. This could allow more patients to benefit from custom-fit treatment.
How can supercomputers support our life and work in the future? Watch a video clip about these special machines available to researchers at the Jülich Supercomputing Center and how their computing power can help shape our digital future.
