Computational Core Unit (CCU)

Data science challenges in complex fields of application such as natural sciences can only be met by a high degree of interdisciplinarity. At the same time, however, similar technological issues repeatedly arise. In order to address these with the most modern methods, a high level of expertise in computer science and applied mathematics is required. The Computational Core Unit (CCU) provides this expertise and at the same time links the CDCS with the research groups in computer science and applied mathematics at the University and the Technical University of Hamburg. Staff members of the CCU are available to support all project teams at the CDCS. Thus, complex software components can be newly developed or adapted to specific problems. At the same time, CCU staff members conduct research on basic principles and basic technologies of data science together with the university research groups. During the establishment phase of the CDCS, the main focus is on machine learning, data engineering and real-time data analytics. In the future, additional topics will include scientific software engineering, image and signal processing, high-performance computing, optimization and algorithms, stochastic modeling, approximation and numerics.
