New podcast episode of "We are TUM“
Episode 13: Electro-mobility in Singapore, vaccine education and entrepreneurship at TUM
What do megacities need to be converted to electro-mobility? This is what David Eckhoff is investigating at the TUMCREATE research center in Singapore. In the latest episode of "We are TUM“, learn how he is using simulators to test an electric-driven traffic system in the million-strong metropolis. Further guests: Tobias Massier from TUMCREATE, start-up consultant Alina Friedrichs, and Katharina Tartler from the student group VACCtion. Lastly, writing coach Dzifa Vode gives tips for academic writing.
Interim assessment of medical informatics project DIFUTURE
"Data can save lives"
People suffering from rare diseases often face a major difficulty: Their illnesses occur so infrequently that only a handful of physicians are very familiar with them. This in turn makes the right diagnosis, not to mention successful treatment, very hard. Now researchers in the consortium "Data Integration for Future Medicine" (DIFUTURE) want to improve this situation using large volumes of data and Artificial Intelligence.
New TUM Robotics Lab at the Deutsches Museum
KI.Fabrik: Robots as Teammates
In a new research laboratory at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in the Deutsches Museum, humans and robots are working closely together. The goal of the KI.Fabrik flagship project is to develop flexible, learning-enabled robots that support people in their work with the help of artificial intelligence (AI).
Google supports science at TUM
1.2 million US dollars for data protection and cybersecurity
The Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Google are further expanding their existing partnership. The California-based company is providing the TUM University Foundation with a total of 1.2 million US dollars for scientific research in the areas of Privacy, Safety and Security. Google's own global Safety Engineering Center is located in Munich; Google has been a TUM "Partner of Excellence" since 2018.
Prof. Darius Burschka learned from mariners
Calculating collision risks: with the constant bearing principle
Preventing accidents by computing impending collisions of drones or cars: that is the goal of Darius Burschka. The professor at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) tracks every point in images generated by cameras carried by flying drones or cars on the road. In principle he applies the “constant bearing” technique traditionally used by navigators at sea.
Position paper outlines opportunities for schools and universities
“ChatGPT can lead to greater equity in education”
The public launch of ChatGPT has led to considerable dismay at schools and universities. However, a position paper authored by more than 20 scientists at TUM and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) working in educational, social, computer and data sciences shows that the so-called language models also present many opportunities for education. In this interview, the coordinator Prof. Enkelejda Kasneci explains how the new technology could benefit learners and make teachers’ work easier.
New computational models for cognitive disorders and pain
Using Big Data against mental disorders
How can physicians help patients suffering from mental health disorders like chronic pain, depression and stroke? An interdisciplinary team of researchers at TUM is developing new methods to investigate the neuronal patterns underlying these conditions.
MIRMI researchers find solution in centuries-old equation
Turning robots into skilled waiters
Researchers at the Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine intelligence (MIRMI) at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed a model that enables a robot to serve tea and coffee faster and more safely than humans – with no sloshing. The mathematics behind the pendulum used in the concept is more than 300 years old.
Digital teaching and learning lab for student teachers
Preparing for a digitalized working world
From the factory to the hospital ward – digital skills are playing an increasing role in almost every profession. In the TUM-DigiLLab digital education laboratory, pre-service teachers gain a realistic sense of how the digital transformation will look in everyday life and the workplace. This will help them to prepare high school students and students in vocational education and training for an increasingly digitalized world.
Robotics and artificial intelligence in care of the elderly
4.7 million euros in funding and 14 positions planned for the TUM Geriatronics campus
Good news for the TUM Geriatronics campus in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the Robo.Care AI mission: the Bavarian cabinet’s 2023 draft budget includes 4.74 million euros in funding for research on robotics and AI applications in the care of the elderly. This was announced by Bavarian science minister Markus Blume on a visit to the campus, which he praised as a “model project for Germany and the world”. The new campus is a project under the auspices of the Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) of TUM.
