From the lab into the world

"Shaping change" is the motto of Forschungszentrum Jülich. Two young scientists from the Institute for Biological Information Processing show what this can look like in practice. Gabriela Figueroa Miranda has developed a rapid diagnostic test for malaria that she and her colleague Viviana Rincón Montes would like to bring into use.

Neural Networks: Chaos Pays Off

Creative geniuses have known it all along: Chaos improves your intellectual capacity. At least, it may be useful when it comes to networked neurons, as a scientific paper of Forschungszentrum Jülich has now shown. Christian Keup speaks about the results that have now been published in the journal Physical Review X.

Borexino Collaboration receives Giuseppe and Vanna Cocconi Prize

Quantum Computing: “We Need to Develop Realistic Applications Now.”

Quantum computers could one day outperform today’s supercomputers to an extent that can only be imagined at present. Currently, important decisions are being taken regarding the development of this future technology. We discussed the latest developments with Frank Wilhelm-Mauch, who is coordinating construction at Forschungszentrum Jülich of the first freely programmable European quantum computer as part of the European flagship project OpenSuperQ.
