A new protocol developed in Sweden has the potential for industrial-scale production of the brain helper cells known as astrocytes. The research team's work could help medical science develop treatments for such diseases as Alzheimer’s.
Putting the student first, making learning fun and the ability to motivate. Those are a few of the reasons why David Broman, associate professor in software and computer systems, has been named teacher of the year by the Student Union (THS).
KTH researchers reported a nanoengineering innovation that offers hope for treatment of cancer, infections and other health problems – conductive wires of DNA enhanced with gold which could be used to electrically measure hundreds of biological processes simultaneously.
Today, the 6th of February, the world celebrates Safer Internet Day. We caught up with Sonja Buchegger, associate professor in theoretical computer science, to get her best advice on staying safe in social media.
The Alexa Prize is a $3.5 million university challenge to advance conversational AI. The teams create socialbots that can converse coherently and engagingly with humans on a range of current events and popular topics such as entertainment, sports, politics, technology, and fashion.
During 2018 WASP will arrange a series of conferences on the team of articifial intelligens (AI). The events, called AI4X Collecting Ideas and Identifying Challenges for Future AI Research in Sweden, will be arranged five times starting the 12th of February. The goal is to enhance the understanding and knowledge of the oppertunities of AI today and in the future.
At the Jubilee event on the 17th to 19th of October, the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was represented by 22 speakers. Did you miss any of the seminars? Don't worry! All seminars are now published on KTH's Youtube channel.
To achieve the climate goals and create a sustainable society requires major changes. In a new book, researchers at KTH have investigated this from an everyday life perspective with an artistic touch and science as a basis.
Hi there, Jan Gulliksen, Professor of Human Computer Interaction and Vice-president of Digitization at KTH. The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently decided to remove the regulations saying that broadband providers must treat all traffic on the internet equally regardless of sender, receiver, platform or content. You are Vice President of Digitalization at KTH and Digital Champion for Sweden within the EU. What are your views on this decision?
The second group of students at KTH's intensive course in IT development for new arrivals have just finished their studies and are on their way into the workforce. On Friday, the Minister of Labor Ylva Johansson, visited the students.
The start-up company Manomotion – a company that works with real-time analysis of body movements – which stems from KTH research, has just been appointed to present itself and its business ideas at "A-ha!". “A-ha!”, which is organized by CB Insights, will showcase 40 of the leading startup companies in technology.
With recent advances, technology can be used to synthesize silk with similar mechanical properties as an actual spider’s. But applying this material to promising medical therapies for illnesses such as cancer requires that humans develop a capability that only arachnids or silkworms possess – the ability to control the formation of silk.
Imagine an industrial setting. A team of robots has been given the task of transporting boxes from one place to another, but (!) a truck has mistakenly put a huge delivery in front of them. An error of this kind would cause the system to halt, require human intervention and restarting. But this could soon be about to change.
At Sweden Impact Award, Rajeev Thottappillil’s, Mats Bäckström's and Daniel Månsson’s research on “Defending critical infrastructure against intentional electromagnetic threats” was selected as top three in the category of Physical Sciences and Engineering.
Between the 16th and 20th of October KTH celebrates the 100th birthday of our beloved Campus with activities all over our locations.
