CSC – School of Computer Science and Communication. CSC in brief – Facts and figures about CSC. CSC research and education. CSC is one of Sweden’s most advanced and successful research and education institutions in Information Technology.
CSC is one of Sweden’s most advanced and successful research and education institutions in Information Technology.
CSC works with education and research at KTH Royal Institute of Technology and at Stockholm University in:
The department of Computational Biology does research in the fields of systems biology, computational neuroscience, neurocomputing, computational biomechanics, biological physics, theoretical biology, genome evolution and gene regulation.
The department has been involved in planning the EU Flagship project The Human Brain Project.
The department of Computer Vision and Active Perception performs research in computer vision and robotics, developing methods for analyzing images in the same manner humans perceive and understand their surroundings.
The research can be used to develop vision used for man-machine interaction.
The mission of the Theoretical Computer Science group is to carry the culture of theoretical computer science, and to develop and disseminate new, interesting and useful theory in computer science.
TCS is concerned with the foundations of efficient and correct algorithms, and deals with the tractability of computational problems. Applications include computational biology, cryptography, natural language tools, and complex technical systems.
Research has been conducted on for example electronic voting systems.
The MID group at CSC is an interdisciplinary research group consisting of the two previous research groups Media Technology and Graphical Production and Human Computer Interaction.
The group has its roots in computer and behavioural science, graphic technique and media technology, and today has faculty that represents e.g. anthropology and psychology, computer science and media technology, interaction design, film and literature science, as well as media and communication science.
The research in the music acoustics group runs in three main streams;
While running in parallel for periods, they often merge and interact. An experimental approach has long been characteristic of the research.
The research of the hearing technology group aims to improve hearing impaired persons ability to perceive speech and other sounds and to understand what is being said. The challenge lies in trying to apply the fundamental knowledge of human hearing and perception to "intelligent" electronic aids for changing circumstances in everyday life.
PDC operates leading-edge, high-performance computers on a national level. PDC offers easily accessible computational resources that primarily cater to the needs of Swedish academic research and education. PDC also takes part in major international projects to develop high-performance computing for the future and stay a leading national resource in parallel computing.
The HPCViz department is concerned with the development of new concepts for improved usage of high performance computer systems, including modeling and simulation, as well as analysis and synthesis of (typically) visual data.
What CSC can offer in terms of programs
CSC gives two five-year programs in Swedish leading to the degree Master of science of engineering:
Conducts research within computer science on a broad scale.
CSC is an SBI, Stockholm Brain Institute, partner, concerning the calculation platform, and hosts the Swedish Neuro Information Node within INCF.
