News about CeBIT 2012:
Closely observing and protecting huge national parks – the PLANET project led by engineering scientist Prof. Dr. Pedro José Marrón of the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) makes it possible. Marón is currently presenting the project at this year's CeBIT fair in Hanover.
“The original idea for PLANET came to me as I was working on other EU projects” mentioned its founder and coordinator Marrón. He had a particular interest in...
Web applications such as Google Mail, Facebook and Amazon are used every day.
However, so far there are no methods to test them systematically and at low cost for malfunctions and security vulnerabilities. Therefore, computer scientists...
At this time, wireless networks are able to brake just one bike, but in the future, the technical elements will be further developed to regulate entire trains as they travel over the lines.
In view of that fact, computer scientists at Saarland University are designing mathematical calculations to check such systems automatically. The scientists...
To connect a laptop to an additional monitor, projector or even to a monitor wall, a special cable was required, until now.
Researchers of the Saarland University’s Intel Visual Computing Institute overcome this obstacle by linking computer and monitor via an ‘Internet Service’. By...
When customers visit an online shop, they want to see all parts of a product; they want to enlarge it, or visualize adjusting single elements.
Until now, web developers have been dealing with a multiplicity of different programs, in order to illustrate articles on the Internet in such a complex way.
The new HTML extension XML3D, which offers the capability to describe computer scenes in spatial detail directly within the website’s code, simplifies that. An online shop can be extended with XML3D in just a few clicks, as researchers of the Saarland University’s Intel Visual Computing Institute demonstrate at stand F34 in hall 9 at the computer fair Cebit....
Previously, setting a picture or whole series of pictures to suitable music required expert knowledge and a great deal of time.
Newly developed software called Picasso succeeds in arranging pictures with appropriate compositions in an instant, by utilizing the technical skills of movie...
UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, will present 20 companies at CeBIT, where they will showcase their innovative digital products on the French pavilion. The trade show is the digital industry's biggest event and will take place in Hanover (Germany), from 6 to 10 March 2012.
UBIFRANCE will group together the French companies in two areas during the CeBIT trade show in March. Companies focused on new technology and research will be...
A publicly displayed object of art experiences a lot: dazzling light, unfavorable temperatures or too much moisture. With ‘Artguardian’ Fraunhofer researchers have developed a fully automated, intelligent monitoring system helping art lovers to optimally preserve their objects of art. Thanks to sensitive sensors they can be exhibited under the best conditions. The solution will be presented from 6th to 10th March at the CeBIT 2012 (hall 9, booth E08).
There are an estimated 150 million works of art in the market today – in museums, public spaces and in the holdings of private collectors. Not only because of...
Games, e-mails and around-the-clock Internet access – smartphones are making the information culture an even more prominent part of everyday life.
Businesses and employers are also increasingly relying on mobile companions with apps developed expressly for the task at hand. In the future, for instance,...

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.
Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...
The technology could revolutionize how information travels through data centers and artificial intelligence networks
Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley have built a new photonic switch that can control the direction of light passing through optical fibers...
Physicists observe how electron-hole pairs drift apart at ultrafast speed, but still remain strongly bound.
Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a...
Engineers create novel optical devices, including a moth eye-inspired omnidirectional microwave antenna
A team of engineers at Tufts University has developed a series of 3D printed metamaterials with unique microwave or optical properties that go beyond what is...
