AI to combat weeds

Artificial intelligence (AI) will in future enable drones to provide precise information on the occurrence of weeds in cereal crops and pinpoint where in the field which plant species is…

A post-quantum chip with hardware trojans

A team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has designed and commissioned the production of a computer chip that implements post-quantum cryptography very efficiently. Such chips could provide protection…

Modular functional units for reconfigurable space systems

In space, autonomous robots are supposed to fulfil diverse tasks. In order to meet the respective requirements, existing systems are strongly mission-specific. The downside: If the mission requirements change, a…

Paving the way for machine learning with medical data

Data science specialist CASUS and the research consortium PIONEER ally in the fight against prostate cancer. The Center for Advanced Systems Understanding (CASUS) at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) has joined…

New Algorithm Flies Drones Faster than Human Racing Pilots

For the first time an autonomously flying quadrotor has outperformed two human pilots in a drone race. The success is based on a novel algorithm that was developed by researchers…

Emergent magnetic monopoles isolated using quantum-annealing computer

Project offers new step toward study of emergence, ‘materials by design,’ and future nanomagnets. Using a D-Wave quantum-annealing computer as a testbed, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have shown…

3D printed soft robotic hand that can play Nintendo

A team of researchers from the University of Maryland has 3D printed a soft robotic hand that is agile enough to play Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. – and win! The…

Topological materials for ultrafast spintronics

Future information technologies… A team led by HZB physicist Dr. Jaime Sánchez-Barriga has gained new insights into the ultrafast response of topological states of matter to femtosecond laser excitation. The…

Unconventional superconductor acts the part of a promising quantum computing platform

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck. Scientists on the hunt for an unconventional kind of…

Swarm of autonomous tiny drones can localize gas leaks

When there is a gas leak in a large building or at an industrial site, human firefighters currently need to go in with gas sensing instruments. Finding the gas leak…
