New method for measuring amino acids

Under the leadership of Prof Uta Schlickum from the Institute of Applied Physics, the group in the QuantumFrontiers Cluster of Excellence developed a new measurement method. For the first time, a single amino acid in a peptide, a combination of several amino acids, could be identified on a single molecule basis on the surface.

Professor Vadim Issakov visiting Tokyo

Mitten in Tokio: Professor Vadim Issakov erkundet nach seiner Gastvorlesung die Stadt.

The cooperation between TU Braunschweig and Keio University in Tokyo continued to gain momentum over the summer. First, Professor Vadim Issakov travelled to Japan and lectured on analogue integrated circuits in biomedicine. This was followed by a workshop on “Next Generation Quantum Computing”, which mainly brought together researchers from the Japanese quantum computing programme with those from Quantum Valley Lower Saxony. Finally, Japanese Professor Hiroki Ishikuro returned the visit with a guest lecture in Braunschweig. From enthusiastic students to new cooperation options to exploring Japanese culture: after his German-Japanese summer, Professor Vadim Issakov is positively brimming with impressions.

"Deep Neural Networks and Data for Automated Driving" online

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tim Fingscheidt from the Institute for Communications Technology, together with Hanno Gottschalk from the University of Wuppertal and Sebastian Houben from the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems, has published an open access Springer book on automated driving with a focus on "Artificial Intelligence and Data".

This book addresses readers from both academia and industry, since it is written by authors from both academia and industry. Accordingly, it takes on diverse viewing angles, but keeps a clear focus on machine-learned environment perception in autonomous vehicles. Special interest is on deep neural networks themselves, their robustness and uncertainty awareness, the data they are trained on, and, last but not least, on safety aspects. The book is also special in its structure. While a first part is an extensive survey of literature in the field, the second part consists of 14 chapters, each detailing a particular aspect in the area of interest.
