Pervasive Computing and Cyberphysical Systems

Main content

Computing pervades more and more sectors of the physical world, and computer science is becoming pervasive in all sectors of society. What has traditionally been called an "application area" is now in many cases transforming into a new field where computer science methods and technology are interwoven with scientific principles, methodologies, and techniques from the application domain.

Disciplines such as computational biology, computational engineering, or digital humanities witness this development. Further progress in science and technology will make computing, sensing, and wireless communication ubiquitous. As a consequence, the cyber space will permeate our physical world, and people will be seamlessly connected to smart objects and entire smart environments. Several groups at ETH computer science develop methods, engineering principles, and tools that support and safeguard this evolution.
