Centre for Advanced Analytics and Predictive Sciences
The analysis and intelligent modelling of data is key to guiding future action. The Centre for Advanced Analytics and Predictive Sciences (CAAPS) unites data collecting and data processing disciplines at the University of Augsburg in a multidisciplinary centre with the goal of enabling progress and innovation in experimental and theoretical methods and their actual application.
Recent developments show how closely data acquisition and data processing interact in current research. This is evident especially in medical computer-aided diagnostics and therapy, in the production of high-tech materials and substances, and the application of Artificial Intelligence.
Such developments require infrastructure consisting of a complex technological process chain and theoretical mathematical and computer science methods for processing extensive sensor information and data sets. This emphasises the need for multidisciplinary cooperation between data collection and processing and offers the potential for innovation in economically and socially relevant fields of research.
CAAPS welcomes the initiation of thematic workshops to strengthen its application areas and their methodological cross sections. CAAPS supports such activities with up to €5000 per event. Deadline for the first round: 11.07.23
CAAPS networking event for young researchers
The second networking event for young researchers from all CAAPS disciplines will take place on the 6th to the 8th of November at “Wissenschaftszentrum schloss Reisenburg.”
New managing director of CAAPS
Dr Ursula Weiß will begin her new appointment as managing director of CAAPS on the 1st of May.
The University of Augsburg’s Centre for Advanced Analytics and Predictive Sciences (CAAPS) was founded in December 2020. It unites the university’s data collection and data processing research areas in a new multidisciplinary centre. The centre received major support from the Bavarian Hightech Agenda (HTA, HTA+), as well as from the Innovation Fund.
