The Technion Faculty of Computer Science is ranked among the best in the world. If you rely on a computer, it is very likely that your processor was developed by Technion graduates working at companies such as Intel.
Your online communications are for the most part made possible by the Lempel-Ziv algorithm, named for the two Technion professors who discovered a way to compress data. If you use a flash drive, the underlying technology was also developed by a Technion graduate.
Breakthroughs In Computer Science:
Fast Tracking Drug Development Through AI: By getting the computer to learn the “vocabulary” of drug discovery, Technion experts in artificial learning and deep learning created a system for the development of new drugs. The discovery is expected to lower the costs and shorten the time associated with drug development.
Twitter Data Can Help Find Happiness: By analyzing social media posts such as tweets, a joint research team discovered the locations in New York City that make people happy and the places that produce anxiety.
System to Detect Emotions in Texts: It’s too easy to mistake humor for sarcasm in a text. So a computer science student has developed a computerized learning system that can detect emotional sentiments expressed in a text message or email based on recognizing repeated word patterns.
