Exploring job openings, talking with employers and discussing the digital transformation with managers – the IKOM careers fair makes it all possible. More than 300 companies will be on hand in Garching from June 24 to 27 along with around 40 start-ups on June 25.
Munich to Berlin in 30 minutes: Hyperloop could make it possible. Entrepreneur Elon Musk conceived the idea of a super-high-speed train that shoots through a tube system. Musk launched the "SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition" in 2015. Students from around the world have already pitted their prototypes for the passenger capsule or "pod" against one another in three separate rounds. And all three times the prototype from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) made it to the finish line fastest. Now the team is introducing its fourth pod.
Today it is often no longer possible to distinguish between real and faked video content just by looking. To help users know for sure whether politicians have actually said what they appear to say in online video clips, Prof. Matthias Niessner of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed a new algorithm.
For the fifth time in a row the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is the top-rated German university in the renowned „QS World University Ranking“. TUM was ranked among Europe’s five best Technical Universities.
The Imperial College London (ICL) and the Technical University Munich (TUM) are launching a joint PhD program at the interface of Artificial Intelligence (AI), health care and Robotics as well as twenty research projects funded by a Seed Fund.
Tumors and certain viral infections pose a challenge to the human body which the immune system typically fails to hand. In these diseases it switches to hypofunctional state that prevent adequate protection. A research team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has achieved a major success: They were able to identify the crucial molecular switch that triggers such dysfunctional immune responses. This could make it possible in the future to switch off or to prevent this state.
Decay is relentless in the macroscopic world: broken objects do not fit themselves back together again. However, other laws are valid in the quantum world: new research shows that so-called quasiparticles can decay and reorganize themselves again and are thus become virtually immortal. These are good prospects for the development of durable data memories.
Soft drinks dominate the beverage market worldwide. Rising consumption of these sugary drinks is regarded as one of the major factors driving the global obesity epidemic, and has been linked to increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and dental caries. The Technical University of Munich (TUM) has contributed to a study identifying the measures most likely to reduce soft drink consumption.
The use of Bitcoin causes around 22 megatons in CO2 emissions annually – comparable to the total emissions of cities such as Hamburg or Las Vegas. That is the conclusion of the most detailed analysis to date of the cryptocurrency's carbon footprint. For their study, an interdisciplinary team of researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) analyzed such data as the IPO filings of hardware manufacturers and the IP addresses of Bitcoin "miners".
