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.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
