28.01.2019 Loxer Saxony invests in digitization research

The establishment of the Lower Saxony Laboratory of the German Research Center for Arificial Intelligence (DFKI), the announcement of up to 50 professorships for digitization and the development of a Center for Digital Innovation (ZDIN) - all these measures are part of Lower Saxony's digitization offensive

The ZDIN intents to strenght Lower Saxony's research competence in the field of digitization. Further aims are the promotion of cooperation between science and practice and the participation of citizens. The members of ZDIN work together in so-calld future labs which focus on the topics of agriculture, energy, society and work, mobility, prodution and health.

18.12.2018 Faster detection of digital attacks on power plants

To detect hacker attacks at an early stage, a research project with participating researchers at the Institute of System Security (TU BS) developed a new, intelligent detection system for data networks of energy suppliers

Machine learning analyzes traffic and identifies deviations as indicators of digital attacks. Thus, both known and new attack methods are detected and the network operators become able to take timely defensive measures.
