When they first met at the TUM Think.Make.Start young entrepreneurs program, Vladislav Samoilov and Philipp Zent quickly found common ground: they are both passionate gamers. And now they are also entrepreneurs. Their startup – called Brainsight – could revolutionize the world of playtesting.
While the number of qubits and the stability of quantum states are still limiting current quantum computing devices, there are questions where these processors are already able to leverage their enormous computing power. In collaboration with the Google Quantum AI team scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the University of Nottingham used a quantum processor to simulate the ground state of a so-called toric code Hamiltonian – an archetypical model system in modern condensed matter physics, which was originally proposed in the context of quantum error correction.
Hydrogen from climate-neutral sources is regarded as one of the most important energy sources of the future. Accordingly, the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is opening an international Future Lab with researchers from 13 countries. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research will provide as much as five million euros over the course of three years, the Ministry announced on Wednesday.
For almost 20 years, the Academicus has honored ideas from students, teaching staff and employees that provide creative impulses for studying, teaching and campus life at TUM. In this year's competition, the jury awarded prizes for the “Outdoor Lecture Hall”, “TUMgoesOutside”, and “Community Tables”, three proposals that aim to make TUM's campuses even more lively, colorful, and open.
Urban gardens provide a new perspectives for nature conservation and nature connection. How can urban gardens contribute to the conservation of biodiversity and to what extent do they benefit human health? Monika Egerer, Professor of Urban Productive Ecosystems at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), will explain how ecosystems in our neighborhood can provide habitats for animals, plants and people at her TUM@Freising lecture on Monday, December 13, 2021. The event is held in hybrid.
Diamonds for quantum technology, a test for urinary tract infections and a machine learning method for testing computer games: these three start-ups ideas were announced yesterday as winners of the TUM IDEAward. The day also marked the first-ever presentation of the TUM Deep Tech IDEAward, offered to teams established in other countries that wish to launch their start-up in Munich.
The Technical University of Munich (TUM) has achieved two more victories in the competition for Germany's highest endowed research prize: Prof. Stefanie Jegelka and Prof. Suvrit Sra have each been honored with an Alexander von Humboldt Professorship for Artificial Intelligence (AI). Up to now both researchers have been working at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). TUM thus becomes the only German university to have successfully acquired ten Humboldt professorships.
Graduates of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are in demand with companies worldwide. This is seen yet again in the latest edition of the Global University Employability Ranking, in which TUM holds the number 13 position. This places it among the top four universities in Europe.
In part of a recent human study led by the Technical University of Munich (TUM), it was found that after eating a curry dish containing pepper, piperine - an alkaloid responsible for the pungency of pepper - was present in the milk of breastfeeding women. The findings help decipher mechanisms that shape our food preferences from infancy.
A new treatment could prevent serious illness in case of Covid-19 infections during the pandemic. This would prevent hospitalization of patients and thus ease the burden on the healthcare system. For several months, inpatients at the Klinikum rechts der Isar university hospital of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have been successfully treated with neutralizing antibodies. This treatment option at the Antibody Center has now been extended to outpatients.
