Algorithms in Bioinformatics: development and application of methods and tools of Computer Science on biological issues ? ? ? e. g. Interpretation of Mass-spectrometrical measuring data for protein regulation
Algorithms in Bioinformatics At the interface of Biology/Chemistry/Medicine/ Computer Science and Mathematics • Concrete Questions: • Pattern Matching in Blood count • Similarities of Humans and Mice (and Dogs and …) • Develop Algorithms, which are able to scan Terabyte f Data fast.
Databases and Informationsystems DB and IS deals with Gathering, Storing and Selecting Data (Informations) 160 GB disk / 300 $ 100 million books (400 pages each, 2 KB / page) Much cheaper than paper! A database
Databases and Informationsystems Applications: • Public Transport (find train connections), • Airlines (book Tickets), • Online-Shops (buy Books and CDs), • Search engines (e. g. Google), • peer-to-peer applications (mp 3 auf Gnutella, Ka. Za. A) An Example: Saving Videos and searcing for Scenes Find all Musicvideos with Eminem Find all Scenes with Sunset
Approximative Matching of XML Data Q 1 Q 3 Data tree Q 2 Document 1 Query closure Introduction Query and Data Modeling Semantics and Eval Schema based Eval Conclusion
Artificial Intelligence Artificial intelligence deals with problems, which are - hard to solve for a computers, - easily solved by humans (because humans are intelligent – in most case : ) Examples: Face Recognition Speech Recognition Agility
Robotics: AI with mechanic body Interdisciplinary: - Mechanics - electronics - algorithms - communication. Application: - robot soccer Questions: • How does a robot recognize Objects on the field? • Which is the ideal route he should take? • Which actions should the robot perform?
Programing Languages • There are various kinds of programs: – Programs prescripe the way how to perform calculations. – A variety of programs can be formed by concatenation of computer instructions. – Programs are parts of huge EDV-Systems. • Programs are written using programming languages. There are various kinds of programming languages, each focused on another range of problems. • Programming is mathematically exacting. • Programming is an engineers job.
Programming Languages (Part 2) • How can programs get created more efficiently and secure ? • How can one avoid coding errors, or how can they be found automatically ? • How may properties of programs get verified ? • Which tools takes it to simplify the process of programming ?
Distributed Systems How to build a big software system out of existing components – with low effort ? (" reuse components") Languages, methods and tools for simplifying the development of distributed compter systems? ` Visualisation and animation of programs
System Software: Operating Systems and Middleware Distributed Application Middleware (CORBA, . NET, . . . ) Linux Windows Mac. OS . . . Abstraction of distributed application parts, i. e. procedure remote calls Tools and infrastructure for distributed systems concurrent computing in the net component based spreaded systems Netsecurity access control
Theoretical Computer Science Focus: geometric and combinatorial Algorithms Geometrical Methods in the Astronautics • Identification of the position and orientation of the satellite Tubsat (Techn. Univ. Berlin) using an onboard camera, that records constellations, which is then transfered to the home base. • The position and orientation of the satellite are found by mapping the pictures into an electronic celestial map and calculating the satellites distance.

CS in Education and Society How is Computer Science related to Education and Society? • Good teachers needed for Computer Science as school subject • Necessary: Didactics and new Methods of Teaching • Support of Living and Learning, e. g. by using of internet • Effects on Society, e. g. new professions and computer support at work.
New Teaching Methods • Pupils from Japan and Deutschland are learning together via E-Mail, internet and video meetings
New Teaching Methods • Pupils design artificial kaleidoscopes and learn geometry
New Teaching Methods • E-Learning e. g. teams of pupils or students are working in projects and get support and advice over the internet
Technical Computer Science and Mobile Communications Computers • get continuously smaller, • are hidden in items or environment, • communicate with each other, • outnumber humans, • haven`t to be PCs! motion sound radio infrared vibration Sensor for environmental data capturing
Technical Computer Science and Mobile Communications Challenges: • Adaption to many different scenarios • Possibility of controlling many computers • Mobile internet • Automatical interconnection
