June 2019: Closing ceremony of the HPI-Schülerkolleg
Tobias Friedrich handed out the certificates at the closing ceremony of this-years HPI-Schülerkolleg. The Kolleg is a yearly program of the HPI to teach school kids, aged 12-18, from Berlin and Brandenburg basics in computer science.
Oliver Brock (TU Berlin) is a leading researcher at the interface of robotics and biology. The Algorithm Engineering group invited him to give a talk about Artificial Intelligence: Does It Require A Body? at the HPI Colloquium on February 21, 2019. A recording is available on Tele-TASK.
Christopher Weyand and the HPI Competitive Programming student club hosted a contest site for the FAU Wintercontest 2019 enabling six HPI teams to participate. Two of them, Hexaflexagons and mosHPIt, reached the top 10.

Our research focus is on theoretical computer science and algorithm engineering. We are equally interested in the mathematical foundations of algorithms and developing efficient algorithms in practice. A special focus is on random structures and methods.
