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.

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.
