The University of Copenhagen is one of Europe’s most renowned research institutions. It often ranks first among the Scandinavian universities in the international rankings, and the university’s researchers attract large, prestigious grants. Nine of the university’s researchers have received the Nobel Prize.
The Department of Computer Science at the University of Copenhagen (DIKU) is one of the leading research institutions for computer science in Europe. It is the first computer science department in Denmark, established by Peter Naur in 1970. Since then, its researchers and graduates have formed the basis for society’s accelerating technological transformation, and our research environment and results have made us one of Europe’s leading and most attractive computer science departments.
Role in the project
The Department of Computer Science (DIKU) at the University of Copenhagen is one of the leading research institutions for computer science in Europe. DIKU comprises a dedicated ML section focused on theoretical and applied ML. In 2020, DIKU researchers published Carbontracker – a tool for tracking and predicting the carbon footprint of ML models – which will serve as a foundational tool for the GreenR service in enRichMyData.
