When neutron stars and black holes collide, gravitational waves are released and a hot luminous ring of gas is created. BlackGEM is a series of telescopes that helps researchers to more accurately determine where a collision has occurred.
Digital discussion partners such as chatbots can make complex topics more accessible. The Look Who’s Talking project will develop and test a new generation of chatbots that can engage in lengthy and interesting conversations.
This project focuses on the development of a ‘Hybrid Human-AI Regulation System’ (HHAIR system), which teaches 10- to 14-year-olds self-regulation skills. This will allow them to learn with support from adaptive or self-adaptive learning tools.
Technology companies like Google, Apple and Amazon have moved into the domain of health and medicine. The Digital Good project explores the ethical and societal challenges that are associated with this ‘Googlisation of health research’.
We use countless systems that rely on cryptography. Many of these systems use symmetric cryptography. This project will attempt to adapt the benefits of asymmetric cryptography to the symmetric variant.
Researchers from the National Individual Floating Transport Infrastructure (NIFTI) project will be studying the feasibility of a radically new form of transportation in which an individual module is driven by subsurface magnets.
In recent years, scientists have experimented with innovative forms of biodiversity restoration in the Ooijpolder in Gelderland. The Living Lab looks at how the existing pilot schemes and initiatives have improved biodiversity in this region.
To facilitate the communication between hearing, deaf and hearing-impaired people, the SignON project is developing a smartphone application that can translate sign language into spoken and written language and translate these back again.
