HIDA-Newsletter 12-2020
Dear Friends of HIDA,
shortly before the Christmas holidays, we ignite fireworks - at least that's what the current motif of the Helmholtz Christmas greeting looks like - an artistic visualization of a data set our HDS-LEE doctoral researcher Christian Gerloff is working with. The sparkles represent neural signals of two interacting persons. Even before the actual holidays, we are in a sparkling celebratory mood: The Helmholtz School DASHH just received the North German Science Award! Our new portraits show what kind of research is being done at DASHH. Tom Weber wants to use AI to make the results of quantum computers more reliable, while Anna Theresa Cavasin is engaged in basic pharmaceutical research. In climatology and medicine, too, pioneering research is being pursued with data science. Get to know what Sonal Rami from HDS-LEE and Paula Breitling from HIDSS4Health are working on. By the way: Do you already have plans for the new year? Make a note of this: The application for the next round of our HIDA Trainee Network starts on January 15. We at HIDA wish you all the best for the coming year!
May the data be with you!
DASHH Receives Science Award
The North German Science Award 2020 went to the Graduate School DASHH Data Science in Hamburg - Helmholtz Graduate School for the Structure of Matter. The prize is endowed with 125,000 euros and is awarded every two years. Following the award, the highly qualified training at the graduate school is also now being strengthened by a further cooperation with HAW Hamburg. Four computer science professors from HAW have been appointed.
Congratulations DASHH!
„I would like to congratulate all participating institutions on the North German Science Award! The interface between data science and the natural sciences holds a huge potential for innovation.“

Featured Story
Improving Quantum Computing with AI
Quantum computers promise unimaginable processing power - but only in theory. So far, they can’t be used because their results are rife with errors. In his doctoral thesis, Tom Weber is working at DASHH on a software solution that aims to compensate for these errors

Looking Back
Datathon for Climate Research
The challenges of climate change are huge - also for research. At the HIDA Datathon for Grand Challenges on Climate Change, participants from all over the world were able to demonstrate how data science can be used to find solutions to climate change issues - with computing power, team spirit and in five different application areas.

Modeling Ocean Currents
Even small ocean currents can have a significant impact on the climate. Sonal Rami's research at the MarDATA will help to predict these currents more accurately. By using machine learning methods, she is working on making complex ocean models even more precise - to enable more reliable predictions of climate change.

Software Assistant for Oncologists
Oncologists who want to provide cancer patients with tailored treatment have to analyze large amounts of information - which takes a lot of time and expertise. At HIDSS4Health Paula Breitling contributes to the development of a software that aims to help doctors recommend appropriate therapies. This could allow more people to benefit from custom-fit treatment.

Better medicines thanks to IT
For the development of new medical agents it is important to know how biomolecules, for example viruses, are structured. At DASHH Bioinformatician Anna Theresa Cavasin therefore wants to use computer-assisted methods to optimize images from cryoelectron microscopy - in order to pave the way for better drugs with data science.
