As a student at the Center for Digital Technology and Management (CDTM), I participated last semester in a course called Center Farming. The main idea was to build a fully functioning food computer designed by the MIT Media Lab Open Agriculture Initiative. A personal food computer is basically is a tabletop-sized, controlled environment agriculture technology platform that uses robotic systems to control and monitor climate, energy, and plant growth inside of a specialized growing chamber.
As a data science student and enthusiastic techie, it has been always one of my dreams to work in the Bay Area where so many innovations were created. I fulfilled this dream last summer by doing my summer internship as a data analyst at a startup called Keepsafe in San Francisco. My expectation was to work in a dynamic and innovative environment of motivated people who want to make a change. I wanted to soak in the spirit and energy of the valley and learn as much as I can while I was there.
Throughout the last semester I participated with a couple of fellow students from CDTM at the Tech Challenge of unternehmerTUM / Technical University Munich. The exciting thing about this course is that it is in comparison to a lot of lectures or seminars very hands-on. The goal of the Tech Challenge was to create, prototype and test a solution jointly together with a corporate partner. The whole project had an entrepreneurial touch tailoring the learning experience to a possible entrepreneurial journey with a final pitch of selected teams at the demo day.

Homomorphic encryption entails the big advantage that computations can be directly performed on encrypted data. This could be a very promising way of processing sensitive and confidential information remotely on the cloud for example. Within a university project we implement Conway’s Game of Life using homomorphic encryption for any operation using the Simple Encrypted Arithmetic Library (SEAL).
Within the last 7 weeks a had the great opportunity to start the complementary study program Technology Management at the Center for Digital Technology and Management, also known as CDTM. As it is a add-on program it is not a standalone Master or Bachelor degree, but called an Honor’s Degree. The overall program is heavily shaped by the 3 core models Trend Seminar, Managing Product Developments and Entrepreneurship Lab. Here are some thoughts about the first module Trend seminar.
