Dirk Helbing: Thinking Ahead - Essays on Big Data, Digital Revolution, and Participatory Market Society, Springer 2015, Softcover, 21,39 €, ISBN 978-3-319-15078-9

The rapidly progressing digital revolution is now touching the foundations of the governance of societal structures. Humans are on the verge of evolving from consumers to prosumers, and old, entrenched theories – in particular sociological and economic ones – are falling prey to these rapid developments. The original assumptions on which they are based are being questioned. Each year we produce as much data as in the entire human history - can we possibly create a global crystal ball to predict our future and to optimally govern our world? Do we need wide-scale surveillance to understand and manage the increasingly complex systems we are constructing, or would bottom-up approaches such as self-regulating systems be a better solution to creating a more innovative, more successful, more resilient, and ultimately happier society? Working at the interface of complexity theory, quantitative sociology and Big Data-driven risk and knowledge management, the author advocates the establishment of new participatory systems in our digital society to enhance coordination, reduce conflict and, above all, reduce the “tragedies of the commons,” resulting from the methods now used in political, economic and management decision-making.

Physicist Dirk Helbing is Professor of Computational Social Science at the Department of Humanities, Social and Political Sciences and an affiliate of the Computer Science Department at ETH Zurich, as well as co-founder of ETH’s Risk Center. He is internationally known for the scientific coordination of the FuturICT Initiative which focuses on using smart data to understand techno-socio-economic systems.

Einführung in die Simulation von Halbleiter-Bauelementen

  • 30. November 2017

Von Mosfets über LEDs bis zu Wafern – Halb­leiter­bau­elemente sind essen­tielle Bestand­teile moderner Tech­nik in nahezu allen Bran­chen. Die nume­ri­sche Simu­la­tion kann dabei ein wich­ti­ges Hilfs­mit­tel dar­stel­len, um diese Bau­elemen­te in ihrer Funk­tions­weise zu analy­sie­ren und somit deren Kon­zep­tion zu er­leich­tern.
