The CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security (CISPA) in Saarbrücken is one of the world’s leading research institutions in information security and privacy, with a dedicated focus on addressing the grand research challenges in security and privacy in a comprehensive and holistic manner, in particular the intersection of security and privacy with AI/machine learning. It strives for cutting-edge, often disruptive foundational research, augmented with innovative application-oriented research, corresponding technology transfer and societal outreach. Medical security and privacy, as well as foundational research in AI/machine learning have been topics of central importance for CISPA ever since its inauguration.
The German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) is one of the world's leading cancer research centers and the largest cancer research center in Europe. The DKFZ conducts research on the investigation of the mechanisms underlying cancer, the identification of cancer risk factors, and ultimately on trying to come up with approaches to prevent people from getting cancer in the first place. Moreover, novel approaches are being developed to make tumor diagnosis more precise and treatment of cancer patients more successful. DKFZ research is strongly supported by data-driven approaches and relies crucially on modern AI/ML technologies.
