Dedication to the Future
The Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing SCAI conducts research in the fields of computational science, optimization and bioinformatics, and is a prominent corporate partner in the industrial and science sectors.
SCAI designs and optimizes industrial applications, implements custom solutions for production and logistics, and offers calculations on high-performance computers. Our services are based on industrial engineering, combined with state-of-the-art methods from applied mathematics and information technology.
SCAI especially excels in coupled simulation of different physical disciplines, and develops software for visualization of calculation results.
In the field of machine learning, Fraunhofer SCAI develops new intelligent methods and adapts data analysis methods to specific application cases. SCAI picks up, structures and integrates the knowledge available to users into mathematical or semantic concepts that are incorporated as domain knowledge into data-driven models.
In bioinformatics, Fraunhofer SCAI offers its customers comprehensive services in the field of information extraction (text mining) and in the field of applied chemical informatics. One application focus here is the modeling of neurodegenerative diseases.
The annual budget of Fraunhofer SCAI is around 11 million euros. The networking in national and international research projects ensures the alignment of offers with leading standards.
