(Uppsala University) Researchers at Uppsala University have developed a digital self-test that trains users to assess news items, images and videos presented on social media. The self-test has also been evaluated in a scientific study, which confirmed the researchers' hypothesis that the tool genuinely improved the students' ability to apply critical thinking to digital sources.
(Uppsala University) Hydrogen for energy use can be extracted in an environmentally friendly way from water and sunlight, using photocatalytic composite polymer nanoparticles developed by researchers at Uppsala University. In laboratory tests, these 'polymer dots' showed promising performance and stability alike. The study has been published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
(Uppsala University) In a new article published in the scientific journal Communications Chemistry, a research group at Uppsala University show, using computer simulations, that ions do not always behave as expected. In their research on molten salts, they were able to see that, in some cases, the ions in the salt mixture they were studying affect one another so much that they may even move in the "wrong" direction - that is, towards an electrode with the same charge.
(Uppsala University) Today, the Swedish Government decided to assign to Uppsala University the task of setting up a new national knowledge center for research on nuclear disarmament. With an interdisciplinary approach and researchers in fields including peace and conflict research, nuclear physics, artificial intelligence (AI) and political science, the incipient Alva Myrdal Centre will conduct research with the goal of contributing to a safer world for humankind.
Almost 40 universities are involved to study in Sweden, many of which make it into top ranks globally, such as Uppsala University, Lund University or Stockholm University.Sweden has been one of the European pioneers for switching to English-language tuition and offers a whopping 900 degrees to choose from.
(Uppsala University) The European research initiative BATTERY 2030+ is now getting going. The ambition is to make Europe a world-leader in the development and production of the batteries of the future. These batteries need to store more energy, have a longer life, and be safer and more environmentally friendly than today's batteries in order to facilitate the transition to a more climate-neutral society. The project is led from Uppsala University.
(Bielefeld University) An international team of physicists from Bielefeld University, Uppsala University, the University of Strasbourg, University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, ETH Zurich, and the Free University Berlin have developed a precise method to measure the ultrafast change of a magnetic state in materials. Their study, titled 'Ultrafast terahertz magnetometry', has been published today (25.08.2020) in Nature Communications.
Modern protest movements, from the Arab Spring to Fridays for Future to the current protests in Hong Kong, are almost unthinkable without modern digital technology.In today's world, digital tools from secure messaging apps to online forums and chat rooms are a major part of a protest movement's relative success.There are many signs that this, too, is a successful strategy: suppressing and controlling the spread of information and identifying groups of potentially "dangerous" individuals definitely yields results.Yet among many case studies, there has been a relative lack of comparative work looking into the complex interplay between autocratic regimes, protesters, and digital technology."Until a few years ago, there were basically two camps among researchers: those who see the Internet as a powerful tool of liberation, and those who call it a repression technology.We wanted to go beyond this simple distinction: the Internet can have effects in both directions, supporting autocratic regimes, but also catalyzing protest movements" says Nils Weidmann.
Linnea's Capital will be the name of the fund, which will receive the Uppsala tech scene is thriving.Behind the project is being funded by the state Saminvest, and a number of angel investors.as Of the end of October is expected in the new fund, Linnéa, the Capital to be started.the Goal is to invest sek 150 million in growth companies that are linked to the UIC, Uppsala university, Uppsala Innovation Centre.a Young technology company admitted to the business development programs will be offered at a startinvestering of 500 000 sek per year in order to get the process started.the Investment is then increased at a later date.
here are a few of the questions from the it service provider of Ping Pong, don't want to answer.First, it refers to the company in all matters to the city.and Then we get to the end, please leave a message for the president of the Sofia Högman, who did not return.According to the Breakit was started, the Ping Pong at KTH, and received in 2017, which received private equity firm Alfvén & Didrikson, who is the main owner.over The past few years, Ping Pong has made millions in profits, in the year 2018, the result was a little over 6 million to date.Among the company's customers are seen the Valleys of the Ambulance service, Danderyd hospital, It is the emergency services at the university of Gothenburg, Götene municipality, the University college in Borås, sweden, at the Karolinska institute, the municipality of Katrineholm, royal institute of technology, and the national Police academy, stockholm university, Stockholm, Södertälje kommun, Uppsala university, Uppsala university and of the Västra Götaland region.
The problem of access to safe drinking water in most parts of Bangladesh is a persistent challenge.Now, a team of scientists from Uppsala University, Sweden, and Dhaka University, Bangladesh, shows that a locally growing and previously unexploited green macroalgae species could be used to extract cellulose nanofibers, which can then be formed into paper sheets with tailored pore size that are utilized for point-of-use water treatment.The paper filter has demonstrated excellent virus and bacteria removal capacity both in the lab and in real-life tests.The scientists believe that with further development, the paper filter produced from Pithophora algae (or "Shewla"), could be an affordable and efficient remedy to prevent numerous potentially deadly water-borne infections."Pithophora algae have been largely overlooked in the past as a valuable raw material.It can purify even the smallest virus particles of 27-28 nanometers", says Albert Mihranyan, Professor of Nanotechnology at Uppsala University, who heads the study.
in the present study, mice exposed to low doses of radiation over a six month period, a deterioration in the regions of the brain with memory and learning.Mice exposed to radiation were also more anxious and less social. "It's a surprise and poses a problem, since in the worst case scenario, can lead to cognitive impairment, at the most, the disruption of which is becoming pretty serious, and it affects their future as well as the role they are going to do out there in space," said Bo Stenerlöw, a professor in biomedical radiation science at Uppsala university, sweden, on the radio.the Cosmic rays are more dangerous outside the earth's protective magnetic field, and it has long been recognized as one of the greatest threats to astronauts ' health during long-duration space missions, such as voyages to Mars, as planned, in a couple of years.
the earthquake occurred late Wednesday evening, just south of the coastal town of Sundsvall, which caused residents to alert the fire and rescue service.According to the seismologist, Björn Lund, and this was the tenth-magnitude quake of this size in Sweden, in the years to come.At 23.19 on Wednesday night, shaking the house and the land in the east of the Area.According to the national Swedish seismic network (SNSN) has an earthquake with a magnitude of 2.4, about two miles south-west of Scotland.According to a number of witness testimony into The Journal, I felt the vibrations properly in the house, and emergency crews had to set multiple alarms, though, a loud roar. " Björn Lund, seismologist at Uppsala university, sweden, explains that if you're in the area, you can experience vibrations and hear a high-bang world war ii.
Speculative memory side-channel attacks are security vulnerabilities in computers for which no efficient solutions have been found.Existing solutions only address specific security threats without solving the underlying issue.The first such security threats, Meltdown and Spectre, were announced last year, but many more have been discovered since.Previous security solutions have been limited and often incurred a high performance penalty.-- Our solution reduces the performance and energy costs, and increases the security of the computer system, when compared to previous solutions, says Christos Sakalis, PhD student at Uppsala University.Speculation lies at the core of today's high-performance microprocessors and it is necessary for taking full advantage of the microprocessors' capabilities.
Probing magnetic materials with extreme ultraviolet radiation allows to obtain a detailed microscopic picture of how magnetic systems interact with light - the fastest way to manipulate a magnetic material.A team of researchers led by the Max Born Institute has now provided the experimental and theoretical groundwork to interpret such spectroscopic signals.The study of the interaction between light and matter is one of the most powerful ways to help physicists to understand the microscopic world.In magnetic materials, a wealth of information can be retrieved by optical spectroscopy where the energy of the individual light particles - photons - promotes inner shell electrons to higher energies.This is because such an approach allows to obtain the magnetic properties separately for the different types of atoms in the magnetic material and enables scientists to understand the role and interplay of the different constituents.This experimental technique, called X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) spectroscopy, has been pioneered in the late 1980ties and typically requires a large-scale facility - a synchrotron radiation source or x-ray laser.
Genetics may explain why some people are self-avowed dog lovers, according to a new study.The research found that dog ownership has a heritable component, meaning a person’s genetic makeup may heavily influence whether they choose to own a dog.Uppsala University researchers behind the study describe the genetic influence as both ‘significant’ and surprising.Humans and dogs have enjoyed companionship for thousands of years, with evidence suggesting that dogs were domesticated at least 15,000 years ago.Many individuals describe themselves as “dog people,” citing a great fondness for their pets, while other people remain indifferent or even adverse to the idea of dog ownership.The reason for these differences, a study out of Uppsala University found, may lie in one’s genes.
For the first time, researchers have demonstrated the creation of a beam of nanodroplets capable of delivering a variety of biological samples, from cell organelles to single proteins, virtually free from any contaminations, to the focus of an X-ray laser which can be used to image them.The experiment was performed at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and reported in the latest issue of Science Advances.By designing a new sample delivery instrument which uses electrospray ionization technology scientists have been created droplets of around 100 nm in diameter, about 1000x smaller than with previous techniques.Previous techniques created droplets millions of times bigger than the sample within it, which caused the accumulation of any contaminants, which inevitably exist in the solution, on top of the sample to be imaged, effectively hiding it.Using their new instrument, the team was able to image the Tomato Bushy Stunt Virus, which, at 33 nm in diameter, is significantly smaller any biological sample previously studied with the same technique.Filipe Maia of Uppsala University, a corresponding author of the study, said the ability to deliver single proteins, unobscured by contaminants, to the beam of an X-ray laser is a milestone in the quest to image individual proteins in-flight.
Uppsala university is establishing a professorship in artificial intelligence (ai).This is after a donation by the Kjell and Märta Beijers foundation with 15 million sek during a five-year period.”It means a powerful focus on artificial intelligence as a tool for research in science and technology,” says john German, vice chancellor at Uppsala university, in a press release.The new professorship will be established in connection with the construction of the new Laboratory and the bet on the it activities within the natural and engineering sciences which the university is conducting in connection with this.the Idea is that the professorship will serve as a support to these activities.
In fall it starts Sweden's first single-focused on nuclear power at Uppsala university.the Forsmark and Ringhals nuclear power plant is supporting the training financially in order to secure a highly-qualified skills – well into the 2040's.the financial support from The Forsmark and Ringhals means that Uppsala university and the Swedish industry, together, can create good condition for the great need of engineers as a safe and effective kärnkraftsdrift need, even in the future.the Industry has clearly signalled that they need personnel in a long-term perspective and in terms of operation and maintenance is the engineers that are in demand, " says Michael Österlund, senior lecturer in applied nuclear physics at the ångström Laboratory and the program director for the new training.the Training in the nuclear power technology has the goal of attracting students on a broad front.admission criteria is at least two years of study from another / engineering degree, for example mechanical engineering or electronics.
