The level simulated by the machine is limited by the intelligence we can communicate by means of algorithms. An algorithm is a finite whole of instructions or steps useful to execute a task or solve a problem; machines can only carry out algorithmic tasks.
Making this subject easier for students is very difficult for teachers given its complexity and the necessary abstraction ability to understand it. Now, from the Dpt. of Computing Sciences and Artificial Intelligence of the University of Granada (Universidad de Granada) Prof. Benítez has developed a teaching innovation project titled A multimedia tool for the learning of the Algorithm Theory.
Interactive and functional
It is a web portal to go deeply into the Algorithm theory, but it is not just that. Here there will be material and notes for the study and analysis of the algorithm theory, but it also will have an important interactive and functional component. It will be an environment for the live run of algorithms, easy to use and “quite intuitive”, according to Benítez Sánchez.
The use of the system requires a previous knowledge to access to the complex world of the algorithms. Thanks to this web, students will be able to develop more easily their own algorithms, essential instruments nowadays to develop subjects such as genetics, medicine or engineering.
This didactic tool, which will be presented in two international conferences on the subject, has its own mechanisms to carry out a study of the impact of its use among students and participants, with a users´ record. The forums and lists of e-mails will allow the feedback from the very beginning.

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.
Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
