Data Science & Software Science

Partner for industry and research

Research at Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH) concentrates on equal footing in Data Science and Software Science. The synergy of Data Science and Software Science at SCCH is an important success factor. 

As a COMET competence center, SCCH conducts cutting-edge research on an international level. Together with our scientific partners, especially Johannes Kepler University Linz, SCCH strives toward leadership in the future-oriented fields of digitalization and artificial intelligence.

 

Automotive Computing

What are the challenges that mobility of the future poses for security?

The 3rd event on the subject of automotive computing will take place in the Softwarepark Hagenberg on November 14th. Modern vehicles are increasingly developing into highly complex, mobile IT systems. New, smart features are constantly being added to the range of autonomous vehicles. Get to know safety-relevant aspects at the event.

New COMET partners

In the project proKNOW

Greiner Packaging and P&T Connected are the new partners in the proKNOW project, which is concerned with gaining knowledge from industrial processes.  The goal is to develop and adapt methods for fusion and evaluation of data from different sources (sensors, raw material parameters, etc.) and to support detailed process analysis and optimization in industrial applications.

Machine learning - the entrance!

Data are the raw material of the 21st century

Google, Facebook, Netflix or Amazon are already relying on machine learning. These technologies can also be used in a broad range of industrial environments - but companies are reluctant to do so. It is important not to lose any time, as a look at the state of the art reveals. The SCCH experts and a COMET partner in the current issue of "Computer & Automation" explain what is important.

Forum Mechatronics

Digital transformation in the production

From 27. to 28. September, the International Forum Mechatronics takes place in Linz, Austria. The focus is on current trends and challenges in a digitized production of the future as well as the importance of mechatronics for the development and realization of innovative machines and systems or automated production systems. The SCCH presents Augmented Reality applications and fields of application of Predictive Maintenance.

Successful participation

SCCH team at the M8000

The team competition "Mühlviertel 8000" brought together athletes from eight different nations. Congratulations - in 11 hours and 13 minutes the SCCH team reached the aim in Freistadt.

Data analysis for autonomous driving

Event review

The second event of the event series for IT experts at Softwarepark Hagenberg on "Automotive Computing" was a complete success! On June 22, 2017, around 60 industry experts took the opportunity to address the question: "What are the opportunities for data analysis in the automotive sector?"

Boost for Upper Austria

Targeted research funding

In order to boost the digital transformation in Upper Austria, the government is encouraging 14 innovative research projects in the field of digitization with a total funding volume of EUR 5.68 million. The Software Competence Center Hagenberg is involved in two projects.

Impulses for the digital change

Research council visited SCCH

"IT is a key technology in digital change. The intensive expansion of innovation competence in the area of IT is of tremendous importance for the state of Upper Austria and is crucial for future economic growth", says LH-Stv. Dr. Michael Strugl.

Software for production

IT is key technology in digital change

In the "Smart Factory" of the future, whole production plants, different components and even finished products act and communicate autonomously. The intelligent factory automatically adjusts itself to different situations and conditions. This enables the flexible and highly economical production of highly individualized products in small quantities. The Software Research Day on May 9, made this clear.

SCCH shows virtual welding glasses

At the largest industrial fair

The Software Competence Center Hagenberg was represented at the Hannover Fair for Industry (HMI) at the joint stand of Upper Austrian Research (UAR). A broad spectrum of Upper Austrian research competence was shown. SCCH showed the contribution of software to industry 4.0.

Best Poster Award for SCCH

What you see is what you test

At ICST 2017 (International Conference on Software Testing, Verification and Validation), which took place for its 10th anniversary this year in Tokyo, the new topic of the SCCH "Visual Testing" met with great approval. Among other contributions to this topic, the poster received the Best Poster Award.
