“Aarhus University’s motto is <em>Solidum petit in profundis</em> (We seek solid ground in the depths). The ORBIT Lab aims for exactly the opposite. You’ll reach up to the stars, where the sky knows no boundaries and neither does the cloud,” said Dean Niels Chr. Nielsen at the opening.

How we solve the problems of today with the technology of tomorrow

The stage was set for inspiring ideas at the official opening of the ORBIT Lab on Wednesday 13 December, when Aarhus University staff and students were invited along with representatives from the business sector – and many interesting technological innovation projects were displayed.

"In this project, we have started a journey to construct a cognitive computing system as a proof of concept," says Associate Professor Farshad Moradi, Department of Engineering, Aarhus University.
