    With the help of artificial intelligence, chemists from the University of Basel in Switzerland have computed the characteristics of about two million crystals made up of four chemical elements. The researchers were able to identify 90 previously unknown thermodynamically stable crystals that can be regarded as new materials. They report on their findings in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

  • Saarland University computer scientists work to prevent hackers from remotely controlling cars

    Saarland scientists explain the dangerous situation: The growing interconnection of the individual components opens security holes.

    A luxury vehicle today contains multiple computers. During an hour's drive, it thus produces multiple gigabytes of data. Even less expensive vehicles are now brimming with information technology. The growing interconnection of the individual components opens dangerous security holes. One of these has now been closed by computer scientists at the Center for IT Security and Privacy (CISPA) and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) — with the help of software that manufacturers can retrofit into any car.

  • Successfully transferring Industrie 4.0 into reality

    The future of production: integrating the human through scalable  automation, control and communication through cyber-physical systems  as well as standardized interfaces. SmartFactoryKL

    "With their joint booth at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg (Germany), Europe's leading expert trade fair for electric automation, the Technology Initiative SmartFactory KL e.V. and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) will present a spectrum of their competences in the domain of Industrie 4.0 (hall 10, stand 540) from November 22 to 24, 2016. The exhibited demonstrators will show how the transfer of the Industrie 4.0 paradgim into industrial applications can succeed."

    • SmartFactoryKL and DFKI will exhibit at SPS IPC Drives
    • Agile factory systems and human-machine-interaction are main topics
