The Dutch node of the European Research Infrastructure for Life Sciences Data (ELIXIR) together with the Czech one, namely the FIT and the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, CAS, developed the Data Stewardship Wizard web portal. It makes work easier for researchers and Data Stewards in the current trend of massive growth in data volumes. That is extraordinary collaboration on solving one of the burning topics of today and the near future—big data. The Centre for Conceptual Modeling and Implementation participated in the project.

Two Doctoral Degrees in One Study

Collaboration with the University of Antwerp - banner

The Faculty of Information Technology has entered into partnership in science and research with the University of Antwerp. It culminated in the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding on June 6. Thanks to the unique Doctoral Double Degree Programme, students with the software engineering specialisation can now graduate from both universities. The partner universities recognise the selected subjects of the study programme, and the study plan is designed to meet the requirements for awarding a diploma from both the home and the Belgian university.

FIT Students Developed a Unique Device for Drones

FIT Dron

A four-member team of students, in collaboration with the faculty, has developed a unique Dronetag device that makes drones safer and more usable. This independent IoT device uses mobile and satellite technology to impart the location of the drone, making any drone visible in the flight tracker. It can be used, for example, to coordinate several drones with a rescue helicopter or to deliver parcels. The faculty also owns a six-engine drone that is 1.2 meters in diameter and can carry up to 6 kg of cargo.

Supercomputer With the Highest Performance for AI

Introduction of new supercomputer—Pěchouček, Tvrdík, Plodík

The computer cluster with the highest performance for artificial intelligence research in the Czech Republic was built as part of the Research Center for Informatics (RCI) project of the Faculty of Information Technology and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. This supercomputer worth CZK 41.6 million is located in the underground of the FEE building on Karlovo náměstí. With its 6 PetaFLOPS performance, scientists can research deep learning methods such as robotics and bioinformatics applications, developing computer security applications, or managing autonomous cars.
