Computers, as well as the programs that run on them and the networks they form - with the worldwide Internet leading the way - are the most complex structures ever made by the human beings. This makes computer systems both powerful and mysterious tools. Today’s world is a digital world. Ten years ago, data consisted mostly of text; today, however, there is also audio, image and video data. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics are concerned with the issue of how we can come to grips with computer systems, and how we can avoid information overload in the modern-day flood of data. The scientists basically want to understand how algorithms and programs work, how complex processes can be simplified, and how we can use the abundance of available data to receive automatic answers from computers to the diverse questions we face.
