    Using data to make the world safer

    Nils Jansen, working in Nijmegen as an Associate Professor, gained an EU subsidy for his research into how to make AI safer. And that is good news, because there is still a lot to gain on this subject.

  • Attendees workshop Neuromorphic Scientific Computing

    Brain-inspired computing makes computations more energy efficient and faster

    Neuromorphic (brain-inspired) hardware can perform scientific computations faster and more energy-efficiently than conventional computing systems. Potentially, it can even perform calculations that are not yet possible with current computer systems.

  • Aleksei Kimel

    ERC Advanced Grant for research on ultrafast and energy efficient data storage

    Alexey Kimel, Professor in Ultrafast Spectroscopy of Correlated Materials of Radboud University has been awarded an Advanced Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) to develop new technologic concepts for ultrafast, low dissipative data storage.
