A group of students at KTH Royal Institute of Technology is taking the climate crisis into its own hands. Sally Bolin, a third-year Mechanical Engineering student from France, explains how – and why – the group Climate Student KTH was formed.
Borrow your neighbour’s ladder. Repair that broken bike. Share your wardrobe. There’s more to sustainable consumption than simply buying eco-labeled products. Karin Bradley heads a research project that aims to make sustainability the easiest choice.
Soon you may no longer have to worry about how long your dental repairs will last. A new dental reconstruction material developed at KTH offers unprecedented improvements over existing acrylate-based fillers.
What kind of career opportunities will technologies offer in the future? KTH’s inspirational Future Friday event for high school students took place last week, offering a glimpse of what awaits young people in the IT industry of the future. Students, researchers, alumni and representatives from companies were there to share their experiences.
The measurement methods commonly used in voice therapy do not usually take into account how different individual voices are. A new thesis from KTH presents a method by which a person´s entire voice range can be measured. In particular, various aspects of the quality of the voice can be can be quantified. The method can be of great importance to people with voice problems, and also to singers who want to develop their voice.
Visions for what we can do with future electronics depend on finding ways to go beyond the capabilities of silicon conductors. The experimental field of molecular electronics is thought to represent a way forward, and recent work at KTH may enable scalable production of the nanoscale electrodes that are needed in order to explore molecules and exploit their behavior as potentially valuable electronic materials.
Biomedical researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology have opened up an online machine learning competition that will award USD 37,000 to be split among the creators of the best algorithms for classifying protein expression in images of human cells.
At turns lively and yearning, the traditional folk musics of Ireland and Britain have made their mark around the world. Now this perennially popular music is helping computers learn to become a new kind of partner in music creation.
At the opening of Music Tech Fest this week, recording artist and producer Imogen Heap presented her ambitions for using blockchain technology to manage music rights; and the natural reverb of the underground R1 Reactor Hall invited her at points to break out in song. Exciting things happen when art and technology cross-fertilize.
Demonstrating the effects of the street drug, crystal meth, was the first test for a powerful new platform for studying the complex interactions of the brain’s blood vessels and nerve cells. Unveiled last week in an international study involving KTH researchers, the brain-on-a-chip model integrates living cells on microfluidic chips, enabling researchers to take a first-ever look at how disease and drugs affect the brain.
The international festival of music ideas and innovation, Music Tech Fest (MTF Stockholm), is coming to KTH in September. During the week Sept. 3-9, a global array of artists, researchers, creators, innovators and – of course – KTH students will meet to explore and invent new ways to create and experience music. The multi-disciplinary event also puts a strong emphasis on gender equality.
