Generative AI for all? To conclude our global discourse series "One Topic, One Loop", Enkelejda Kasneci, Professor of Human-Centered Technologies for Learning at the TUM School of Social Sciences and Technology, reflects on the key findings from all the contributions.
Bavarian government supports TUM with outdoor laboratory for automated and connected traffic
New test field for connected mobility systems
In the future the Technical University of Munich (TUM) will have its own test field for its mobility research. The facility in Taufkirchen/Ottobrunn near Munich will make it possible to investigate complex traffic scenarios under laboratory conditions. The laboratory will also support research on the interaction of the autonomous traffic systems of the future and their safe and standardized operation. The State of Bavaria is providing financial support to the project.
With online reader survey
New issue of the " Faszination Forschung" magazine
Veins adapt to the currents to which they are exposed - this could be the key to new therapies against pathological changes in blood vessels. Also in the issue: City simulations answer important questions about the future, and research projects in the global south address current topics in medicine, economics and AI ethics.
Pollination in urban habitats requires a diversity of insects
Don’t just look at the bees
Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have found that in the early season, insects such as wasps, beetles and flies play a crucial role in pollinating plants in urban environments. Moreover, for biodiversity that is so important, the food supply is more crucial than, for example, land sealing. This gives gardeners a key role in biodiversity and pollination in urban areas.
Blood vessels in the eye altered with persistent coronavirus symptoms
New approach to testing for long Covid
A standardized eye examination might reveal in future whether people are suffering from long Covid syndrome or post-Covid. A team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) was able to demonstrate a clear connection between the disease and certain changes to the blood vessels in the eye.
Fresh impetus for data science
TUM opens Munich Data Science Institute
The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is celebrating the official launch of the Munich Data Science Institute (MDSI). As a central element of TUM AGENDA 2030, it is funded under the Excellence Initiative of the German government and the federal states. The MDSI pools the strengths of TUM in data sciences, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), from basic research to interdisciplinary applications. It will also teach data skills to master’s students, researchers and professionals.
Praemium Imperiale awarded to TUM professor
Francis Kéré receives prestigious arts prize for his life's work
Another top-level honor goes to Francis Kéré: The architect and professor at Technical University of Munich (TUM) is being recognized by the Japan Art Association with the Praemium Imperiale prize for his life's work. Only last year Kéré's achievements were honored with the distinguished Pritzker Architecture Prize.
Latest highlights university life
New issue of the "TUMcampus" magazine
In this issue of "TUMcampus," we profile the new head of the university library Caroline Leiss, introduce architect Jeannette Kuo, who is researching sustainable building materials, and talk to Enkelejda Kasneci about how ChatGPT can lead to greater educational equity. Also in the issue: statistician Emmanuel Owiredu Odame, who came to TUM from Ghana with the TUM.Africa Talent Program to research jet lag syndrome.
Call for applications: TUM's new Agnes Mackensen Program starts in October
Support for woman students and scientists with a non-academic background
Social origin is still a major determining factor in university studies. Only 27% of young people raised in non-academic homes study at university, while the same figure for people who do have an academic background is almost three times as high. In addition, the situation of women at technical universities is traditionally very difficult. The objective of the new Agnes Mackensen Program at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is to break down these barriers and to foster enthusiasm among more women for university education in STEM subjects.
New podcast episode of "We are TUM"
Space research, German-Asian relations and tips on starting university
More and more space missions are financed by the private sector. What this means for the future of spaceflight is answered by Professor of Space Propulsion Chiara Manfletti in this episode of "We are TUM". She recently moved from the European Space Agency (ESA) to the TUM School of Engineering and Design. Other topics: Students Merle Neumann and Simon Gruber introduce the student group Asian-European Society Munich, Hidden Champions Henrik Eickhoff and Luis Schnürer give insights into the dragon boat race this year - and student Emma Jung shares tips on managing the early stages of studying.
