3D Object Detection

Using a new design model (3D object class detector) not only the efficient detection of objects and their 2D position in a picture is possible, but also their relative 3D position and view point estimation.

Protein structure and interactions: Bioinformaticssupported fight against viral diseases

Olga Kalinina combines genomic-, modeling-, and bio­physics-based me­thods to assess the mutations observed in given se­quences of viral proteins and infer their potential influence on the function of the protein. This enables sug­gestions for drug treat­ment of viral diseases.

Exact Solving of Polynomial Systems and Applications in Geometric Computing

We could improve the bounds of numerical steps needed to find an exact solution for polynomial systems by multiple orders of magnitude. Given present knowledge, they are nearly optimal.

Computation of Equilibrium Prices

The interrelation between supply and demand is easily described as long as you have just one good. For the complicated calculations in an economy with many goods, many suppliers, and many buyers Ran Duan and Kurt Mehlhorn found a relatively simple combinatorial algorithm.

Scalable Analysis of Very Large Datasets

Processing "Big Data" poses new challenges to computer science. At the Max Plack Institute for Informatics, we are investigating algorithms and systems to mine useful information from large, complex data sources efficiently and effectively.

Markerless Reconstruction of Dynamic Scenes

Capturing motion pictures and representing them as 3d objects could until now only be efficiently performed by utilizing marker-based camera systems. Using new algorithms developed by Professor Theobalt and co-workers actors are no longer constricted by marker suits.
