Most endoscopic operations generate videos that are of interest to other surgeons. How were difficulties overcome? What worked well, what didn’t? At what point did preventable mistakes occur? Answers to these questions can be life-saving for the person on the operating table. Researchers at the University of Klagenfurt are working on making huge pools of surgical videos easier to sift through, so that both future surgeons and seasoned surgical staff can learn from them more effectively.
Hate speech in the digital sphere has the potential to silence voices and thereby threaten democracy. But hate is not always expressed through swear words online; implicit insults are also ubiquitous. Tracking these down efficiently by technical means, however, is extremely challenging. Michael Wiegand is currently working on the “Recognition of Implicit Insults” in a project funded by the FWF.
Vast quantities of data also signify huge energy consumption. Developers face the task of processing so-called “massive graphs”, i.e. enormous amounts of information and relationships between information nodes, and they have to do this in times when energy is in increasingly short supply. For almost a year, researchers involved in an EU Horizon project have been working on a holistic model to address the ongoing challenges. The goal is, among other things, an energy label for software codes (just like on refrigerators).
