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.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
