Academic Partnership: IBM & SAP UCC at TU Munich

IBM and SAP have a prolific 40-year partnership with a rich history of innovation, and the latest collaboration adopted by TUM is a game changer. The SAP University Competence Center (UCC) deployed IBM Power Systems to support its cutting-edge SAP S/4HANA and SAP Business Suite solutions offered as cloud services, to enable hands-on learning. In this partnership, we offer practical courses in cooperation with IBM both in summer and winter semesters. The topics include Data-Science and Machine Learning with open-source technologies as well as tools from IBM. An experience report in Teaching Machine Learning was also published successfully at the European Conference of Machine Learning (ECML2021).

Hardware Extension of the OpenPower Platform

Expansion of the OpenPower Platform with two additional AC922 machines. Each is equipped with 4x Nvidia V100 GPUs (32GB VRAM each). This allows us to support even more research project. Read about the Open Power System AC922

2020
Start of the first Research Projects on the OpenPower Platform

One of the research projects is "Artificial Intelligence-based Reconstructive Procedures for Environment Modelling", in which a deep learning based Artificial Intelligence (AI) is built to reconstruct illumination parameters, such as the position or direction of a dominant light source, the light colour or the intensity of the light source, from input images.
