MADALGO in the media


Center for Massive Data Algorithmics (MADALGO) is a basic research center funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. The center is a collaboration between researchers at University of Aarhus in Denmark, Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics and Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main in Germany and Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the US; the center cite is at Aarhus University.


The main motivation behind the center is the rapid increasing availability of massive high-quality data, and the desire to be able to access and process this data on many diverse computing platforms. The main high-level objective of the center is to significantly advance fundamental algorithmic knowledge in the massive data processing area.


We thank Reina Riemann and Nora Zokaite for comming up with the acronym for the center (any resemblance to "mad Algorithms" is purely coincidential).
