Towards fast adaptive simulation with Isogeometric Analysis

Isogeometric Analysis is a young competitor to the Finite Element Method for the solution of partial differential equations which promises interoperability with CAD systems. We discuss recent work on fast, adaptive solution techniques for IGA..

When your virtual trainer knows a lot about your brain …

Intelligent tutor systems in mobile devices make learning ubiquitous, autonomous, and at low cost. In this talk, I describe why neuroscientific knowledge has to ground the “construction” of virtual trainers and what the benefits for users are.

Tax Us If You Can: Which Country Should Tax Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon?

In the last couple of years significant political pressure and scrutiny has been placed on digitalized business models of multinational enterprises and the perceived notion that those enterprises do not pay “their fair share” in profit taxes in the countries where „value is created".
