Billions to be invested in AI and quantum technology

Billions to be invested in AI and quantum technology
Developments in quantum technology and artificial intelligence, AI, are predicted to transform research, as well as business and society as a whole. The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation is awarding a total of SEK 1.6 billion over ten years to these promising fields, in two separate research projects involving several Swedish higher education institutions. Together with other funding, the budget amounts to well over SEK 2 billion.

Equation unveils the characteristics of quantum chaos

Equation unveils the characteristics of quantum chaos
  Researchers have now succeeded in formulating a mathematical result that provides an exact answer to the question of how chaos actually behaves. The researchers have analysed chaotic states at the atomic level.

Robots and ETs: How new life will challenge humankind

Robots and ETs: How new life will challenge humankind
We should start thinking about how we define life, according to Lund University researchers. An army of intelligent robots is growing in front of us, but also opportunities to alter people’s DNA, create super babies and, perhaps, to encounter life in space. The researchers argue that this definition is central to the exploration of new forms of life. It has to do with the ethical/moral, legal and practical issues that we as individuals and communities may face.

Biological supercomputers to be powered by molecular motors

Biological supercomputers to be powered by molecular motors
Crashing computers or smartphones - and security loopholes that allow hackers to steal millions of passwords - could be prevented if it were possible to design error-free software. To date, this is a problem that neither engineers nor current supercomputers have been able to solve. A major reason for this is the computing power required to verify large programs.

Save your city centre by shopping online

Save your city centre by shopping online
Could online shopping help boost city centres in decline? Engineering students at Lund University in Sweden want to reinvent city commerce by bringing local shops together through a single app. Many shopping districts have experienced a decrease in revenue as customers increasingly turn to shopping malls and e-commerce. When Victor Sandberg wrote his Master’s thesis in Industrial Economics, the idea for the start-up company Locals was born.

Smarter transistors could be three times more efficient

Smarter transistors could be three times more efficient
Together with his research team, Lars-Erik Wernersson, professor of nanoelectronics at Lund University in Sweden, has developed a technology for smarter transistors which could be used in electronics that operate on low energy, such as sensors for the IoT. Using the new transistors on a large scale could save enormous amounts of energy. Transistors are the smallest building blocks in electronics - a kind of switch.

Visualising cell migration on a molecular level

Visualising cell migration on a molecular level
It’s a known fact that cells can move around the body, but how they do it has been unknown – until now. Researcher in Infection Medicine Pontus Nordenfelt at Lund University in Sweden has managed to describe and visualise cell migration on a molecular level. In time, this could become significant in the treatment of infectious diseases, inflammation, cancer, etc. where cell migration plays an important role.

Archaeology and 3D technology reconstruct Pompeii

Archaeology and 3D technology reconstruct Pompeii
By combining traditional archaeology with 3D technology, researchers at Lund University in Sweden have managed to reconstruct a house in Pompeii to its original state before the volcano eruption of Mount Vesuvius thousands of years ago. Unique video material has now been produced, showing their creation of a 3D model of an entire block of houses.

Researchers uncover the skin barrier

Researchers uncover the skin barrier
Researchers at the Faculty of Science at Lund University in Sweden can now explain how the properties of the skin change depending on the environment. The new findings explain, among other things, why people don’t dehydrate in dry air. The research results can also be used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry to make substances penetrate the skin more effectively.

Imaging technique in Alzheimer’s disease

Imaging technique in Alzheimer’s disease
  Tau PET is a promising imaging method for Alzheimer’s disease. A case study from Lund University in Sweden now confirms that tau PET images correspond to a higher degree to actual changes in the brain. According to the researchers behind the study, this increases opportunities for developing effective drugs.

Barcodes show the blood family tree

Barcodes show the blood family tree
By assigning a barcode to stem cells, researchers at Lund University in Sweden have made it possible to monitor large blood cell populations as well as individual blood cells, and study the changes over time. Among other things, they discovered that stem cells go through different stages where their ability to restore immune cells varies. The findings provide important information for the research and treatment of leukaemia and autoimmune diseases.

Ultrasound technique increases awareness about cancer cells

Ultrasound technique increases awareness about cancer cells
Researchers at Lund University and the MIT in the US have developed a method to analyse and separate cells from the blood. Ultimately, the method, which goes under the name iso-acoustic focusing, can become significant to measure the efficiency of cancer treatments for individuals. In brief, the method involves exposing cells to ultrasound when they flow through a so-called micro-channel inside a chip.

Drones fly independently using "insect eyes"

Drones fly independently using "insect eyes"
After studying how insects navigate through dense vegetation, researchers at Lund University have come up with a system that can be applied to flying robots. By adapting the system to drones, they can be made to adjust their speed to their surroundings and fly on their own– completely without human intervention and control.
