How randomized data can improve our security
With an innovative approach, Bochum scientists and international colleagues are creating new standards for data security in the cache of electronic devices. Huge streams of data pass through our computers and smartphones every day. In simple terms, technical devices contain two essential units to process this data: A processor, which is a kind of control center, and a RAM, comparable to memory.

Improving urban planning with virtual reality
The impact of structural changes on people can be measured through immersion in virtual models. What should the city we live in look like? How do structural changes affect the people who move around it? Cartographers at Ruhr University Bochum use virtual reality tools to explore these questions before a great deal of money is spent on building measures.

Vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office application
Researchers discover vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office application The problem affects signatures in Word documents, for example. Users who need to securely send an important Word document digitally can protect it with a digital signature. But as researchers from the Network and Data Security department at the Horst Görtz Institute for IT Security at Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, and the Mainz University of Applied Sciences have discovered, attackers can easily manipulate the document without being detected.

A question of promoting talent
When children develop their professional interests, the social environment is extremely formative. Girls often still lack female role models in the field of computer science. The university group she.codes wants to change that and get girls excited about programming. It is often said that IT is a man's world.

’Ediphon’: Editing pop music scientifically with the help of an app
Research Award Winner at the University of Paderborn Presents Results In classical music, editions are considered the basis of scholarly study of music. Unlike classical music, however, pop music is not composed on music paper, but in audio data. The substance of pop music is its sound. Rebecca Grotjahn, professor at the Department of Musicology at the University of Paderborn and the Detmold University of Music, is investigating how this can be edited as so-called -phonographic- music.

Energy-efficient computing with tiny magnetic vortices
Unconventional computing combines Brownian computing with reservoir computing / First prototype developed A large percentage of energy used today is consumed in the form of electrical power for processing and storing data and for running the relevant terminal equipment and devices. According to predictions, the level of energy used for these purposes will increase even further in the future.

Paderborn University leads EU research project on explainable artificial intelligence
Artificial intelligence (AI) has become an integral part of our lives. It has given rise to smart assistants that take on tasks that would otherwise take humans a great deal of time and effort - in medicine, business and industry, for example. To do this, smart assistants require vast amounts of data.

Digital ’Red Cross emblem’ to protect against attacks
Humanitarian protection and support for victims of war and armed violence, that is the goal of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The symbol of the Red Cross is intended to protect aid workers from attack during their missions. Can this symbol also be used for the digital world - and what opportunities and risks are associated with it? An international team of researchers investigated this question on behalf of the ICRC.
