Dear reader,

in the current issue of hoch³ FORSCHEN – the science quarterly – you´ll find the following topics:

Artificial intelligence is becoming more versatile
Neural networks are good at solving specific tasks but unlike humans they struggle to transfer a strategy they have just learned to other tasks. Researchers at TU Darmstadt are making this possible.

A pocket-sized particle accelerator
A chip that can accelerate electrons in just a few millimetres to the same energy as current particle accelerators the size of a room? That is precisely what has been developed at TU Darmstadt and it could lead to inexpensive devices that can be used anywhere.

Prediction made by Noble Prize laureates confirmed
Physicists headed by Professor Norbert Pietralla from the Institute of Nuclear Physics at the Technical University of Darmstadt have developed a method to very precisely differentiate between the states of atomic nuclei. This has led them to make a spectacular discovery.

The world as a data community
A team of computer scientists headed by Professor Carsten Binnig is developing a trustable platform for data sharing. The aim is to open up completely new possibilities for cooperation in the area of big data and AI.
