Magistrát hlavního města Prahy

The department of the complex systems at ICS collaborates with the City of Prague on high-fidelity meteorological and air pollution simulations. Principal areas of interest are located in Holešovice, Dejvice and Nové město. These comprehensive simulations of selected locations represent a valuable source of unique information for the urban planning and future development of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. This cooperation presents a practical example of advanced and modern techniques reflecting "smart city" approaches.

NET4GAS, s.r.o.

NET4GAS provides international and domestic transportation of natural gas in the Czech Republic. It also takes care of the quality and reliability of the transmission system. The cooperation between the Institute of Informatics of the CAS and NET4GAs consisted in statistical analysis of the provided data with a view to early detection of possible faults in the distribution network.

AVAST Software s.r.o.

Founded in 1988, AVAST (now part of the multinational company Gen Digital) is a prominent cybersecurity firm known for its antivirus software. The Institute of Computer Science provided expertise in complex networks, which contributed to the development of innovative solutions aimed at protecting internet users from online threats.

Our collaboration with AVAST focused on analysing the behaviour of individual malware in networks, a crucial step in ensuring cybersecurity. Through our joint efforts, we developed methods to identify malicious entities in complex networks, enhancing the efficiency and accuracy of AVAST's antivirus solutions. Given that cyber threats pose significant risks to both corporate and individual users, this work plays an essential role in improving the overall cybersecurity of society.
