The department 'Computer Graphical Systems' at HPI is dedicated to research and development in IT Systems Engineering, and is related to visual computing, visual analytics and AI on abstract data. Our research topics include:
- Geospatial AI: Segmentation, classification, semantic interpretation, 3D reconstruction, and real-time visualization of 3D geospatial data, in particular, 3D point clouds. The goal is to enable the creation of geospatial digital twins based on sensored or modeled spatial data.
- Sensor AI: Extraction, fusion, predictive analysis, and visualization of real-time sensor data, in particular, in the fields of technical plant operations and domotic systems.
- Software Engineering AI: Collecting, descriptive and predictive analysis, and visualization of data about software systems, their evolution and the development team based on software process mining and software visualization. The objective is to provide tools that contribute to transform software engineering into real engineering.
- Image and Video AI: Processing, semantic interpretation as well as stylized and abstract visualization of visual media content based on, in particular, neural networks. The objective is to provide innovative digital tools to transform, abstract, and stylize visual media contents.
- Information Visualization & Information Cartography: Methods and techniques to visualize large-scale hierarchical and non-hierarchical abstract data by means of 3D information metaphors such as tree maps, topic maps, and information landscapes.
- Real-Time 3D Rendering and Non-Photorealistic Rendering: GPU-affine algorithms and techniques for processing 3D geometric models and image data.
