Algorithms as a Driver of Information Society

Algorithm Engineering for the Scalability Challenge (AESC)

Algorithms are crucial to many computer applications and have an increasing influence on science, engineering, and our daily life. It will be important to handle a strongly increasing amount of data to be processed (Big Data) in spite of a stagnating capacity of single processors.

The “Algorithm Engineering for the Scalability Challenge (AESC)” initiative accepts this challenge. The interdisciplinary research program of the KIT Information – Systems – Technologies Center focuses on pushing algorithms development in a cycle of design, analysis, implementation, and experimental evaluation of key applications and, thus, closing the gap between required and available computing capacities.
