Proseminar: The power of computer science regarding safety & security issues
There are numerous cases where safety and security solutions make use of information technology, e.g. in the case of surveillance systems, sensor networks, software applications and many more.
By the means of selected information systems that are currently being developed for real-world deployment, the impact of information science will be presented and discussed. Possible examples could be PreCobs (Forecasting software for criminality), specific video tracking software and other approaches.
Students get the chance to either choose examples for information systems themselves or select from given thematic areas. Additionally during the seminar, specific solutions for surveillance, warning systems, (food, medical etc.) supply will be observed and evaluated in an external demonstration room students will have exclusive access to.
In order to develop those thematic areas fundamental skills of academic work are to be conveyed.
