- Full of tradition: A short trip back in history! The logician and developer of the first formal languages Gottlob Frege taught at the University of Jena—supported by the physicist Ernst Abbe. By the way: The first computer of the former GDR, the OPREMA (from the German ‘Optik-Rechenmaschine’), a computer for optical calculations was built in Jena in 1955 by VEB Carl Zeiss Jena. Based on the above history, our University later got its own institute for computer science in the reunified Germany.
