At the CeBIT, KIT will continue to present itself in the ‘future parc’ until Saturday. A method for soundless calling meets with the high interest of the public. In the past days, the professor of information science, Tanja Schultz, explained the exhibit to visitors and a number of journalists, among others from the BBC. A software for language-to-language translation of lectures and parliamentary debates and an encryption technique for mobile communication devices can also be seen and experienced. For the first time, the Forschungszentrum Informatik (FZI, Research Center for Information Technology), the innovation partner of KIT, presents three exhibits at the KIT booth.
“We have not noticed the decrease of visitors and exhibitors deplored by the CeBIT”, underlines Viktoria Fitterer, who coordinates the KIT booth. She and her team answer many questions relating to KIT and the studies offered in the field of information science.One of the most prominent guests at the KIT stand was Minister of Economics of Baden-Württemberg, Ernst Pfister.
The KIT booth is part of the guided tour program at CeBIT: Two times per day, a group of 30 visitors comes to the booth that covers more than 100 square meters.
