AI in Lie Detection: Social Harmony at Risk?
Artificial intelligence can detect lies much better than humans. This also has an impact on social interaction, as a recently published study shows. Humans are bad at recognizing lies. As studies consistently demonstrate, their judgments are barely better than chance. This inability could be one of the reasons why most people refrain from accusing others of dishonesty.

How Cities Can Adapt to Climate Change with Artificial Intelligence
The Freiburg project 'I4C - Intelligence for Cities' has developed locally precise climate models and foundations for planning tools Urban spaces are particularly susceptible to the effects of climate change, such as heat waves, floods, and storms. But which areas of a city are affected, and how can city planners respond? 'I4C - Intelligence for Cities' is an interdisciplinary project conducted by the University of Freiburg and several Fraunhofer Institutes.

AI shows how field crops develop
AI shows how field crops develop
Tool developed at the University of Bonn should enable yield forecasts, among other things, in the future Researchers at the University of Bonn have developed software that can simulate the growth of field crops. To do this, they fed thousands of photos from field experiments into a learning algorithm.

Evolutionary algorithm generates tailored 'molecular fingerprints'
Evolutionary algorithm generates tailored ’molecular fingerprints’
Team at the University of Münster develops an improved method for explaining machine predictions of chemical reactions Artificial intelligence and machine learning are becoming more and more relevant in everyday life - and the same goes for chemistry. Organic chemists, for example, are interested in how machine learning can help discover and synthesise new molecules that are effective against diseases or are useful in other ways.

Warning from the Scientific Community: Beware of AI-based Deception Detection
Artificial intelligence may soon help to identify lies and deception. However, a research team from the Universities of Marburg and Würzburg warns against premature use. Oh, if only it were as easy as with Pinocchio. Here it was simple to see when he was telling a lie: after all, his nose grew a little longer each time.

Arabica coffee: New database to better identify more climate-resilient plants
Arabica coffee: New database to better identify more climate-resilient plants
As climate change threatens coffee farming, experts at Nestlé, the world's largest food company, are exploring how advanced data science and artificial intelligence can help select and breed more climate-resilient crops. Together with researchers from scientific institutions in Brazil, France, the US and elsewhere, they have published their latest findings in the journal Nature Genetics.

Redefining Quantum Machine Learning
New study from team of quantum physicists at Freie Universität Berlin challenges traditional understanding of quantum machine learning Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) and computer science that focuses on the use of data and algorithms to allow computers to learn without explicitly being programmed.

Artificial intelligence recognizes patterns in behaviour
Artificial intelligence recognizes patterns in behaviour
Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University, the University Hospital Bonn and the University of Bonn have created an open-source platform known as A-SOiD that can learn and predict user-defined behaviors, just from video. The results of the study have now been published in the journal "Nature Methods".

Utilising active microparticles for artificial intelligence
Utilising active microparticles for artificial intelligence
Artificial intelligence using neural networks performs calculations digitally with the help of microelectronic chips. Physicists at Leipzig University have now created a type of neural network that works not with electricity but with so-called active colloidal particles. In their publication in the prestigious journal "Nature Communications", the researchers describe how these microparticles can be used as a physical system for artificial intelligence and the prediction of time series.

Würzburg computer scientists dive down
Würzburg computer scientists dive down
Researchers at the University of Würzburg have developed a virtual reality (VR) application for training astronauts. It allows the training of various mission scenarios under water. Nowhere can the zero gravity of space be simulated as well as in water - training in large indoor swimming pools is therefore part of the daily routine for astronauts in training.

Leukaemia: artificial intelligence provides support in diagnostics
Leukaemia: artificial intelligence provides support in diagnostics
IT specialists and physicians develop new method for recognising genetic aberrations Decisions on treatment for patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) - a highly aggressive form of leukemia - are based, among other things, on a series of certain genetic features of the disease; but at the time when a diagnosis is made, this information is not available.
