The digitization is now generating more data than we can handle, and as the data is created there is a need to immediately process the data to make split-second decisions. Seif Haridi, Professor of Computer Systems at KTH Kista has been granted 33 million Swedish corona for his research plan to build the foundations of next generation scalable big data platforms for real-time decision making.
A new project from EIT Digital has been launched. The project aims to provide seamless gate-to-gate connectivity for aircraft through a high capacity Direct Air-to-Ground Communications (DA2GC) system integrated with ground cellular networks. This will provide high speed broadband simultaneously to all passengers in aircraft flying in Europe and potentially beyond.
With the idea EVintellect Project, KTH phD student Saleh Kargarrazi together with Maryam Pourreza, won the KTH Innovation Challenge “Digital Future”. The competition is a yearly competition run by KTH Innovation and the team will now get SEK 50 000 to spend on developing their idea.
KTH Innovation has since its establishment helped professors, researchers and students with over 1600 different innovation projects. As from today, they will be located in the Electrum house. Malin Luuke, communications manager at KTH Innovation talks about their Pop-up office.
Are you interested in studying abroad at one of KTH’s partner universities next year?

Tingsu Chen from Beijing, China came to KTH for Master studies in 2009. After that she was enrolled as a doctoral student and now she has defended his PhD thesis "Spin Torque Oscillator Modeling, CMOS Design and STO-CMOS Integration".
Mahtab Sangghaleh from Iran came to KTH for master studies in Nanotechnology. A course in Nanoelectronics made her interested in silicon nanocrystals and she continued with doctoral studies within the field. Now she had defended her PhD thesis “Carrier Dynamics in Single Luminescent Silicon Quantum Dots”.
Georgios Varisteas from Athens, Greece came to KTH for master studies in Software Engineering of Distributed Systems. Thereafter he was enrolled as a doctoral student. Now he has defended his PhD thesis "Effective cooperative scheduling of task-parallel applications on multiprogrammed parallel architectures".
Paolo Monti has worked as a researcher at KTH since 2008. He completed his undergraduate studies in Italy but came to KTH via USA where he spent almost eight years as a researcher both in academia and industry. This fall he became a docent at KTH in Optical Networking.
Ning Ma came to KTH from China in 2007 as a researcher. Three years later he started his doctoral studies and now he has defended his PhD thesis 'Ultra-low-power Design and Implementation of Application-specific Instruction-set Processors for Ubiquitous Sensing and Computing'.
