SINTEF Digital Scientific Computing
We focus on innovative use of mathematics and numerical methods within science and engineering. We offer leading expertise in geometry, optimization, simulation, and visualization methods.
Data analysis is a process of gathering, modeling, and transforming data with the goal of highlighting useful information, suggesting conclusions, and supporting decision making. Data analysis has multiple facets and approaches, encompassing diverse techniques under a variety of names, in different business, science, and social science domains. Our expertise in the field of data analysis covers the following subjects.
The monitoring of critical environmental parameters is particularly important as part of the sustainable development of contemporary society. For example, current levels of marine resource exploitation demand accurate monitoring methods in order to support appropriate management strategies. The same applies to the major pressures exerted on the environment by the shipping and oil- and gas industries. SINTEF ICT is active as a driving force in this field and collaborates both with industry and the public sector to develop methods and technologies for accurate and effective environmental monitoring. Our project activities include;
Image analysis is the extraction of meaningful information from images; mainly from digital images by means of digital image processing techniques. Image analysis tasks can be as simple as reading bar coded tags or as sophisticated as identifying a person from their face. Our expertise in the field of image analysis covers the following subjects.
The 15th workshop of SweConsNet, the Network for Sweden-based researchers and practitioners of Constraint Programming
The goal of the SmartPower project is to demonstrate the usefulness of modern optimisation methods for demand respons applications in energy market. To this end, we develop a prototype for optimised Power Matching/load balancing in large scale Smart Grids, a highly complex optimisation problem.
Norwegian researchers make European air traffic more efficient
Many major European airports are unable to expand. This means that aircraft departures, arrivals and surface movements will have to be speeded up. A Norwegian system designed to make all airport movements more efficient is tested in Hamburg, and at Arlanda in Stockholm and Charles de Gaulle in Paris.
Optimal fixture scheduling
With help from SINTEF, the northern Norwegian company Profixio is aiming to become a world leader in fixture scheduling for handball, football and volleyball tournaments.
