Award for BeeGFS

Congratulations! Our spin-off ThinkParQ's BeeGFS software was honored at the annual HPCwire Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards, presented at SC22 in Dallas. The parallel file system BeeGFS, developed by us and marketed by ThinkparQ, helps to handle large amounts of data as a flexible software solution.

Deep Learning Seminar

Machine Learning, Deep Learning and the analysis of huge amounts of data in general are becoming more and more important. Such methods are used in almost every area of research, development or industry. The Deep Learning Seminar of the Fraunhofer ITWM is intended to give interes persons an insight into this large field of research and a deeper understanding. Everyone who wants to learn more about Deep Learning, Machine Learning or AI in general is invited – no matter if students, PhD students, professors or software developers.
