Outreach talk (in German) by HITS scientist Johannes Bracher on how nowcasting can help predict COVID-19 hospitalisation figures more accurately
At the “Open Day” 2022, HITS scientist Johannes Bracher (Computational Statistics) gave an outreach talk in the Studio Villa Bosch on how nowcasting can improve the prediction of COVID-19 hospitalisation figures (“Hoch oder runter?

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
