The potential for what can be done in information technology is both fascinating and thought-provoking. In this brochure we present some of the exciting research projects that are under way at the Department of Information Technology. In the following pages, you will read about how your car will soon be talking to your cell phone, about programs constructed to detect errors or about computers soon being able to figure out what genes cause cancer. And this is just a tiny portion, a sampler of the extensive research going on at our department.
The Department of Information Technology is unique in Sweden. Our undergraduate programs are unusually broad in scope, and in many cases research done here ranks among the best in the world. The department is a strong and committed collaborative partner in basic research with other institutions, in international projects and not least in cooperation with industry, business, and the public sector.
Work at the department is imbued with the joy of discovery, combined with in-depth scientific expertise. It is our hope that some of that feeling will come across in the articles we are publishing here. We also hope that the articles will provide you with a first glimpse of what information technology is all about, and that this will sow the seeds of thought about what our common future will be like. A future full of potential.
