Episode 9: 3D printing

Whether in space research, medicine or house construction - 3D printing is already being used in a wide variety of areas. But what does it take for good 3D printing? What are its limits and what will be possible with 3D printing in the future?

Whether artificial heart or car parts for Formula 1 - the possibilities of 3D printing seem almost unlimited. But what does it need for good 3D printing? And what could the technology look like in a few years' time? Presenter Leon Stebe discusses these and other questions with Prof. Patrick Baudisch, head of the "Human Computer Interaction" research group at the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI), in the new episode of the podcast Neuland.

Episode 8: Algorithms

Those who think that algorithms have only something to do with computers are wrong. They go through many areas of our everyday lives - and we do not even notice anything about them. But what is an algorithm?

How exactly can they predict individual preferences and what is an effective algorithm? All this and many more questions will be discussed between Prof. Dr. Tobias Friedrich, Head of the Department "Algorithm Engineering" at the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) and senior researcher Dr. Timo Kötzing together Leon Stebe in our new podcast episode.

Episode 2: What does a Data Scientist do?

Data sciences such as data engineering, and data analysis are becoming increasingly important in times of digitization. However, what does the job look like?

Every one of us leaves traces on the web every day - what moral and ethical responsibilities develop from this for data scientists? Answering this question and evaluating the opportunities and risks of data processing, HPI Professor Felix Naumann gives new ground to our moderator Leon Stebe in the second episode of the HPI podcast.
