The fastest supercomputer in Germany
The fastest supercomputer in Germany
Experiments and simulations frequently produce enormous volumes of data. The new high-performance computer SuperMUC-NG at the Leibniz Supercomputing Center (LRZ) in Garching is currently the fastest computer in Germany, assisting scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in handling enormous quantities of data.

Explaining machine learning
New video clarifies important elements of artificial intelligence in lay terms The University of Tübingen has produced a short film explaining the significance of research into machine learning. "In recent months there have been many media reports on the development of artificial intelligence and machine learning," Matthias Bethge explains.

A Software to See How Fish See
A Software to See How Fish See
Software for behavioral studies in fish made freely available by Tübingen neuroscientists Zebrafish have been one of the most important animal models in neuro-science for only a few years. Laboratory equipment and software for studying their behavior is therefore often highly specialized and expensive.

The jazz bell
The jazz bell
Research news Researchers at Technical University of Munich (TUM) are using computer simulations to investigate how and why bells ring. The virtual models result in new bell designs that generate highly unusual harmonies - for example a jazzy A9 chord. Now the world's first jazz bell has been cast. The high art of bell casting requires a wealth of experience: In order for the finished bell to create a harmonious sound, the casting mold has to have the exactly right shape, narrow at the top, wide at the bottom, bulges in just the right places.

The transparent soccer player
How can success in soccer be measured? With the amount of positional data available in modern soccer, this question seems particularly interesting in the run-up to a World Cup. Sports data scientist Dr. Daniel Link from the TUM has developed a model that can be used to measure how likely a team is to score a goal during a match.

Virtual contact lenses for radar satellites
Virtual contact lenses for radar satellites
Research news Radar satellites supply the data used to map sea level and ocean currents. However, up until now the radar's "eyes" have been blind where the oceans are covered by ice. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now developed a new analysis method to solve this problem.

Improving Stroke Treatment Through Machine Learning
Methods from optogenetics and machine learning should help improve treatment options for stroke patients. Researchers from Heidelberg University have developed a computer vision technique to analyse the changes in motor skills that result from targeted stimulation of healthy areas of the brain. Movements recorded with a video camera are automatically analysed to monitor the rehabilitation process and evaluate and adjust the optogenetic stimulation.
