The software project Distributed Systems is assigned to various different modules and contains a range of topics from the research area of the dependable distributed systems group. The projects aim at working on a more complex task containing design, implementation, and validation in a team.
Topics this semester are:
- development of a symptom checker to support the arrival of patients at the emergency unit of Charité Berlin. The project will be in a team with students from the medical school.
- development of tool support for laser welding in collaboration with Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung
- development of an app for federated learning
- development of a private blockchain to store welding quality data
- your topic?
Details will be discussed in the first meeting.
