Improving Flat Panel Displays by Discrete Optimization

To reduce the energy consumption of flat panel displays one needs hardware-implementable algorithms that manage the pixel control. A patented solution is able to give results very close to the optimum.

STICS – Search and Analysis with Strings, Things, and Cats

Understanding the meaning of a word in its current context is one of the big challenges when searching for information. STICS is a new kind of semantic search engine that not only searches for words, but for meaning: it understands concepts and categories.

Computational Fabrication

3D printing gives new opportunities in object replication. We built a computational model with which we will compare perceived properties of different materials and choose the one best suited for printing the desired object.

From Routing to Pricing and Learning: Why Are They Hard to Compute?

Computational aspects of routing and pricing problems share more similarities than one would imagine. Theoreticians as well as practitioners can benefit from our transfer of routing problem knowledge to pricing problems.

Markerless Reconstruction of Static and Dynamic Scenes

The 3D reconstruction of detailed models of persons in general apparel is, until now, possible in indoor sudios with controlled environment only. With new algorithms this seems it could succeed even in arbitrarily complex outdoor scenes with only a few camera.
