The Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the Technische Universität Berlin and the Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin have started the new winter semester with five additional professorships at the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF). With topics such as water supply in large cities, the effects of chats and blogs on learning processes, the interpretability of algorithms and the energy consumption of electric vehicles, the ECDF is expanding its interdisciplinary portfolio.
Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Mayweg has been appointed Professor for "Digital Knowledge Management in Study and Teaching" at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Three new scientists have started their work at the Technische Universität Berlin: Prof. Dr. Andrea Cominola is the new professor for "Smart Water Networks". Prof. Sangyoung Park, PhD has taken over the professorship for the field "Development of Digitalized Traffic Technologies / Smart Mobility Systems". Prof. Dr. Tilo Schwalger holds the professorship "Data Assimilation in Neuroscience". Prof. Dr. Felix Biessmann has the "Data Science" professorship at Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin.
The Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF) is an interdisciplinary project of the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the Technische Universität Berlin, the Universität der Künste Berlin and the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The Center for Digitization Research sees itself as a cross-university nucleus for researching and promoting digital structures in science, business, and society. The interdisciplinary project aims to create more links in the field of digitization in Berlin, to try out new forms of cooperation, to concentrate on innovative interdisciplinary cutting-edge research, and to attract excellently trained young scientific talent to the capital. The ECDF was approved by the Einstein Foundation Berlin on September 5, 2016.
