Hand drawing video concepts

Technikon Video Showcase is growing. The media team at Technikon has been busy in the creation of animated explainer videos, podcasts and short informational movie clips. These media pieces are intended to inform the general public about some of the projects that are currently underway. The work you see is done in-house and distributed by social media and the project communication channels.

ALFA System Demonstration in Portugal

ALFA system demonstration event

Technikon staff were present at the ALFA project final demonstration in Cacela Velha, Portugal where the team showed the progress of the aerial detection and tracking. The goal of being able to use ALFA to detect, track and even predict landing sites of low flying air vehicles was achieved. It was through the unwavering support of all partners that this project finished with such a resounding success. While there is still much work to be done in this segment of maritime surveillance, ALFA played an important role in moving security concepts closer to production. The ALFA project will officially end in December of 2019. For more information, follow our podcast where we had the opportunity to speak with specific project partners about how it all works and what to expect in the future.


Technikon booth at Kärnter Sicherheitstag

The Technikon security team will be present at the 16th annual Austrian IT Security Day (16. Österreichischer IT-Sicherheitstag) on October 16th to network with other experts in the field as well as sharing IT security knowledge. This event is important for Technikon because it keeps them in the mainstream to see what IT security issues are trending. With an increasing number of connected devices every day, it is important that to prepare defences against breaches and other criminal cyber activities.

Project Logo iPC

On 1st of January 2019 the European cooperative research project, iPC „individualizedPaediatricCure: Cloud-based virtual-patient models for precision paediatric oncology“ has started.

The goal of the iPC project is to collect, standardize and harmonize existing clinical knowledge and medical data and, with the help of artificial intelligence, create treatment models for each patient. Armed with these treatment models, scientists will then test them on virtual patients to evaluate treatment efficacy and toxicity, thus improving both patient survival and their quality of life.

The consortium consists of 21 partners from 11 different countries (Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands, Slovenia, USA and Australia).
